Photobucket Picture Link Fix!

With his permission, here is a great quick fix to view threads with a bunch of old Photobucket picture links.

Apparently Google Chrome and Foxfire have found a way to access the photos that Photobucket.com does not now allow you to post to 3rd party sites anymore without paying a high price.

"In the cases where former/current PhotoBucket users haven't deleted all their albums, Chrome and Firefox now have an extension, Photobucket Embed Fix, that will display 3rd party hosted images. It will fix all your broken pics, no need for you to do anything, it runs entirely in the background.

Click Tools>Add-Ons (Or press CTL+Shift+A) >select Extensions > enter "photobucket embed" in the Search box (upper right corner) > then click the install button."

Thanks for posting. After installing this fix, I was able to view a number of threads on another site that had lost the photobucket photos. The guy who posted passed away a few years ago and I had no fix to see his photos anymore.

I'm not sure how long that will work so I'll suggest another idea. For threads you want to save and preserve, I've been able to use the web browser's Print function to save it as a PDF file on my hard drive.

Welcome, I was also glad to see the fix work. Were you viewing Dbltree's posts??
