Photobucket pictures not showing

#1 Post by sorcerer » Tue Mar 13, 2018 12:05 am

Info taken from another forum:

I've noticed many pictures, that were linked from Photobucket, have been erased. This is down to Photobucket taking a rather draconian action to basically ransom members into buying memberships to allow their photos to be visible. Some posts may well get corrected over time, many are not...it can be a fair bit of hassle to correct, or the poster may have subsequently left the forum altogether.

When they get wiped you see this.

I discovered a fix for this a while ago and it does indeed seem to completely fix it! I've been using it for over a week (on Google Chrome) and every photo has been visible wherever I've checked thus far. Go here and add the extension if you're using Google chrome.

There is a fix for Firefox as well and no doubt others too.

Apologies if this fix has already been posted. I have not seen it on this site thus far.

Great stuff and thanks for this!

Dai (Classicswede) told us about the fix for Firefox a while ago but I didn't know about the others and I use Chrome.

You'll be able to see pics of your RX300 I converted again then ;-)

Haha, I can indeed Simon - but we've now sold the car!

We recently got an inheritance and I said that I wanted to spend about £1,000 on the car, getting a paint correction done and one or two other things to make it look really good again. Now that we're both 60 and both in jobs where we can retire now, my wife suggested that instead of spending that money on a car that's coming up to 13 years old, we should trade it in and get something newer that will see us well into retirement.

Of course, I wasn't going to argue against that, so we're now the proud owners of a 63-plate Lexus RX450h hybrid - and we love it! :D

I'll continue to sing your praises whenever and wherever I can my friend, you did a brilliant job for us on the RX300 and I pass on your details to anyone asking where it was done so I hope they follow up on my recommendation.

Cheers mate,

John

John,

Sorry this is such a late reply.. I've been so busy converting vehicles to LPG and correcting LPG installs on other vehicles over the last few months that I've seldom come on this forum (which I consider my home forum).

Thanks for the good words mate.

Cheers,
