Arrow Photobucket Fix

I'm not sure how long it will last and whether PB will get wise to this loophole and block it later, but currently, if you add ~original into the photobucket code that you paste into a forum thread to display a picture, it will show the picture unblocked.

You need to insert ~original after the bit that says .jpg and before the bit that says [/IMG]

So in other words it should look like this


.jpg~original[/IMG]

If you go and edit your pictures in your posts to add this extra bit of code the images will display again

Thanks, tested and it does work, (see below) but it is a lot of work finding the appropriate image on PB and re-editing.

A quick look at doing this, suggests it might involve a lot of effort to add that on a per image basis. The image would have to be found on PB, to copy the link, then the extra code added in when pasting it.

A slightly quicker way is to Edit your original post, click the square box in the top right corner to switch editing modes, you then see a sort of 'code view' of your post - like this, which shows the original link....

[IMG]-----http://i455.photobucket.com/albums/qq276/harrym1byt/HBCompensator.jpg[/IMG]

That needs editing to this...

[IMG]----http://i455.photobucket.com/albums/qq276/harrym1byt/HBCompensator.jpg~original[/IMG]

Several ----'s added above to prevent it trying to show the actual image..




An even quicker way and I don't know if it could be done, would be for a mod with suitable experience might be able to run a search through the entire forum, for lines of code containing '.photobucket.com.' then replacing the following incidence of .jpg[IMG] with .jpg~original[/IMG]

Yes Harry I was suggesting that if they wished, folk could re-edit their own posts with blocked pictures to repair them rather than continue to use PB and applying the fix going forward for the simple reason that this fix may not last forever so using another hosting site would be a better option.

While it is physically possible for a mod or mods to trawl through the entire history of the forum and individually fix each image, none of us volunteers would have the available time to execute such an undertaking I'm afraid.

If individual members wish to review their own posts and edit them that would help enormously. I see that Marinabrian for example has already made a start with his

I have fixed all of my reference threads to be found in my signature links but there are still hundreds more images of mine to go.

Going forward, I am no longer using PB for image hosting new material, but have not closed my account with them.

Just had a quick look on Google, and found a Chrome extension that also fixes the problem: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...flicjjgj?hl=en

Only of use if you use Chrome, and, of course, it only fixes it for those who install the extension. I've just tried it myself, and I can now see all embedded Photobucket images across the forum and beyond.

Pauls fix is the better solution, as it will give everyone access to your photos, but if you need to see the photos on a "How to" that hasn't been sorted by the thread owner, then the extension should sort things for you.

How did the fix surface? A disgruntled PB insider?

Good work there but I seem to be doing something wrong.

I tried editing the links on this thread to no avail

I think on that thread, the photos have been deleted (it's a different error message from Photobucket).
