Photobucket embed fix.

Post by Titan » Thu Aug 24, 2017 9:36 am

Dear fellow forum members,

It seems someone wrote an app for google chrome that, when installed, will rid you of those damn photobucket P500 upgrade rectangles and will allow you to see the embedded photos again in older posts.

How to use ?
0. Use google chrome as your browser
1. Go here:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... jjgj?hl=en

2. Install the plugin.
3. Clear your browser image cache (click the three dots at the top right in your browser bar - then click advanced, go to the "privacy and security" bit, "clear browser data" should be the last item in the window, then select "cached images and files" and clear the cache)

Just to be clear - this is something YOU have to do if YOU want to see the pictures - for everyone else who surfs to the topic and uses a different browser or doesn't have the app installed, it will still show the photobucket upgrade mess. The original posters of the topics can do nothing about it.

I can only say that for me it works splendid !

:lol: Just one very minor problem with that! :lol:

I outright refuse to use Chrome, because it's Google!

Search google for your browser name and "photobucket fix"

For Firefox:

Your mileage may vary.
