Can someone give me a link to a thread with that dreaded Photobucket black box within? I have added an extension to my Chrome that should allow me to see the non-seen images. Once I verify it works, I'll let you all know.

So, show me a thread to test. Thanks

Photobucket changed - you have to pay now for them to host the pics you want to share (I found this out on another forum that I manage) I've had to move all my photos over to imgur to get the free hosting Photobucket used to provide. Whoever those photos belong to has to park them somewhere else beside P'bucket or pay P'bucket.

I saw the photos just fine.

There's an extension for Chrome (and I believe others too) that allow your browser to see all those deleted Photobucket images that are being blocked.

Search "photobucket embed fix"
from Dave at a different forum.


Here is the Chrome link for extensions:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/s...ory=extensions

I installed the middle of three listed.

Thanks, Angie. What a star!
Worked like a charm and didn't even need to restart the browser. So easy.

Wow, I don't normally use Chrome but that patch worked a treat!

Will there be updates for other browers too?

( I know, not asking for much ... )

Well, so far the one for Firefox isn't working for me. I tried restarting the browser, but no difference. I don't want to restart my computer right now, but maybe that will do it. Not sure, of course. I also have MS Edge, but haven't looked yet to see if there is a patch or add-on for it. Maybe later. I prefer FF most of the time, and don't really like Chrome, but I may add that add-on to my tablet, where I do have Chrome installed and see how it performs. For now, if anyone tries the FF add-on and find it works for them, I'd love to know about it.

Oh, here it is: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...-embedded-fix/

The reviews about this add-on say it no longer works, so I guess that's just the way it is.

Welcome back Earlene!

I'm guessing any fix is only going to have a limited life-span, as I can't see Photobucket leaving it too long before they close the door on browser modifications being able to bypass the limitations they've decided to apply.
