"PhotoBucket" fix........(I think)

Try this,,,,,

Apparently Google Chrome and Foxfire have found a way to access the photos that 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."

Copied from another forum.

Doesn't work.

Well, that isn't exactly right. It does to some extent, but it doesn't do much good to post pics and then have people who don't have chrome or firefox not be able to see them.

Just pay imageshack $19/year, and get the best photo hosting for just a little.

Hack that does work - edit the post and between jpg and [IMG] put "~original", without the quotes, as that seems to work.

You can move from one service to another to another to another if you wish. One starts charging then another as people move to another free service provider. It's all just a continual game of whack-a-mole. It's no different from either side of the torrent situation. What will happen is that eventually one side of this thing will give up and move on. We see this same thing take place in just about every area of the technological frontier. This ceaseless and tiresome effort is the biggest reason why more people are moving from Windows based computers to Apple/IOS devices. The best way to ensure your pictures (or whatever) is to run your own server. But then, even that places some measure of responsibility on you. It's the same thing with email. It's not impossible. In fact , it's very do-able. It's just that very few people want or care to do anything more than they absolutely have to. That includes learning how to do it in the first place.

"~original" = "_optout_nomap"

That will only work until the people that run the service stops it and that's if it doesn't create a red flag that ends up making you stick out like a sore thumb.

I tried it and it works.
I agree for any new threads put images somewhere else.

But where this comes in handy is for old threads that the images are blocked.
