Photobucket Fix

So in case it hasn't been mentioned before, if your using Chrome there is an extension call Photobucket Hotlink Fix. I'm using it right now and the Photobucket pic are now working on the site.

Too late for me. In a fit of annoyance at a web site that's been getting more and more bogged and irritating already, then locked out third-part links, I deleted all my photos from PB and got rid of the account.

So most of the photos I've posted here, other than tinypic and ctrlq, are DOA. And I can't recover them, though I still have all the originals. But it's impossible to know what photos go with what comment, for the most part. :x

I posted this back in September last year:

Basically it re-directs the URL causing Photobucket to think it is being accessed directly. You can find it here at: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... apbifiaedg They also have a patch for Firefox users at Firefox/Android version: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... bucket-fix

Hopefully we can return to enjoying this fabulous website as it was before Photobucket got greedy.
