Images - Photobucket - Fix

Post by Bob K » Mon Jul 17, 2017 12:03

There is now a fix to view photos for Chrome and Firefox: https://www.google.com/search?q=Photobu ... e&ie=UTF-8



Most of the images posted using photobucket will no longer be displayed.

It really sucks as many on here used Photobucket, and many helpful and informative pics will no longer be displayed.

This will devastate our website and render a significant portion of our forum quite worthless. :cry:

I suspect this will backfire spectacularly for them as a business model. $100 a year to share photos on a site is batshit crazy. I did find a work around when posting my cacciatore photos. Your experience may vary but if you
1. click on library on the photo you want
2. click on the magnifying glass in top right once the image comes up and you get the original photo.
3. Copy the image link address from this with right click and it seems to work

Doesn't help all the existing informative threads with affected accounts though. :cry:

Moving to imgur accordingly I guess.

The thing is, $100 would be crazy, but you still can't 3rd party share with that plan. You have to upgrade to the $399.99/yr package to get 3rd party sharing. Now THAT is batshit crazy.
