Photobucket Fix

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, old build threads are gone for good, with the linked pics replaced by the dreaded PB ransom note ... They were visible with the Firefox of Chrome fix, but that is all ...



Yes,that is the point of my post. MY old threads are still intact with photos on photobucket because I did not delete my photos. If everyone did the same, old build threads would still have visible photos.

I added the fix for firefox and I haven't moved my photos off photobucket so they show up when I go to the article.  This is a great fix   Thanks for posting it.


I also added the Chrome fix andit works. I'm going to add the ad on to all my computers. I hope there aren't any hidden problems by using it.

Photobucket will eventually find a way around the 'fix', and when they finally go bust, then they are all lost forever.


There is an add-on for Chrome which allows you to download albums from Photobucket. If you remember, they removed that facility.


Download your photos and where you can, reinstate them via another hosting site.

I guess PB must be hurting. I got an email from them a while ago, telling me of the great new plans they had. I checked it out and it is now reasonable to get into.




However, I've been playing at having a web page on and off for 20 years or so, and have one running on PowWeb. I did an image test a while ago, a Mig 17 in Egyptian markings which appeared as it should. One of these days I'll go and transfer all my photos to the web site and updated the threads that need to be done. The nice thing is hat you can also run sub pages, on different topics. I figure on posting some reviews I did for IPMS Toronto and some other stuff I'm writing. Here's the link to my old page.




PowWeb is having a sale right now, here's the link.
