Announcement - Photobucket images no longer working

Hello,

Photobucket.com has recently changed its terms of service for free users on their platform. As of June 20 images hosted by Photobucket and shared on our forum, or any other third party sites, will no longer appear. As a result, you may notice a higher amount of broken images on the forum.

If you do not have access to edit your older posts please contact an Administrator or Moderator for assistance. Please provide the new URL for the image that needs to be edited and a link to the thread the image in located in.

More information on the change and what it means for Photobucket users can be found below.

Thank you

I can't see photobucket recovering from this. Everyone will find an alternative and photobucket will go under.

Who knows what will happen to them. They certainly opened up a can of worms with their decision to go down this route. Just an FYI, the above is a temporary fix until our techs are able to come up with a more concrete solution to all this. In the mean time, let us know which of your threads are affected and the images you would like for us to fix for you (provide links to these).

Anytime someone finds something useful, please post here and let us know what device/browser you are using. For Chrome users, we came across an extension that will enable you to see the broken images hosted from PB. Another temp fix for now (who knows how long it'll hold up) but here it is - https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...bifiaedg?hl=en <- click on that link and do the following:

Add Ext > open the added ext at the top right corner of your browser "P" > select Manage Ext > tick off the box for both Allow in Cognito and Allow access to file URLs > refresh link of affected images to see they're visible again!

Let us know if that works for you and/or if you need further assistance.

Cheers,
Natalie
