*** Photobucket Fix!!! Try it! ***
« on: October 28, 2017, 08:03:03 AM »

    Copied this from the 4x4 Community Forum, IT WORKS!!.... (At time of posting anyway)  :rubhands:

    If you're using Google Chrome, go to the three dots on the right side of the screen and click them. A drop down should appear. Hover your mouse over "More Tools," and when the next drop down appears, click on extensions. Go to the link towards the bottom that says "Get more extensions." In the search box, type "Photobucket Fix," and hit enter. Click the install button and once it's done, you should be able to see photobucket pictures again.

    For FireFox users, click on the three bars on the right side of the screen, then click on add ons. Click search for "photobucket hotlink" and click install. Same result.

    Opera is now catered for;
    Menu/Extensions/Get Extensions, search "photobucket hotlink fix", install.


    Same result; all photobucket images embedded in posts on forums become unblocked.

Enjoy!

If you can see Tammy smiling at you, then you have successfully loaded the plug-in!

This is great, thank you very much.
But any chance you can help a newby out with the correct way to post photos to the forum to start with? 🙈

I would like to share photos of my cinema build (other thread that I started this morning) but I haven't quite figured it out just yet.
Help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Best bet is to use a host such as Post Image, which is *much* faster than Photobucket and easier to manipulate.

http://www.postimages.org/

Open a free account, upload your image then choose, select "Share", click on the blue icon to the right of "Hotlink for forums", then paste the url here and you're set!

Thank you Eric, I will try it out right now and see if I have better success than I was this morning with Photobucket.

Alternatives are always good. Imgur is another option:

for the people browsing the forums on their phone (though im not sure why one would subject themselves to squinting at such a small screen .... i use a 50" TV as a PC monitor because size matters  :sh1tstirrer:) this add-on is available for Firefox for android which is designed for phone usage - i installed it and checked and sure enough you can see all the photobucket pics without having to look at placeholders and messages that threaten you if you dont pay up

just wanted to let everyone know especially those people who consider themselves at the forefront of technology that you dont need to look at those pesky photobucket placeholders  ;)  :sh1tstirrer:

HINT : for those who dont know what im talking about have a looksee here

https://www.avforums.co.za/index.php/topic,68763.0.html

now the only time you wont see pics is if you deliberately dont use an android phone or if the owner of the pics removes/moves them himself .... which is a situation that no-one else can rectify
