Photobucket have started disabling third party links so photos aren't showing.

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/06/30/photobucket_charging_400yr_3rdparty_pgs/

A few other forums I visit have already been affected.

They will enable it again for a substantial monthly subscription.

Therefore expect my guides to suddenly lose pictures at some point when mine gets 'seen to'.

I have copied them all over to Imgur in readiness.

Bit of work coming up Sad

In preparation I've downloaded all my PB images locally so they are safe. Can't remember how as it was a while back and I've been to sleep since then. I remember that PB allows you to download each album as a zip.

Then I opened an Imgur account and have set it up with the same album structure.

Imgur allowed me to upload an entire album in one lump so that was easy as well.

All I need now is the time to switch links in the important threads.

Fair enough they decided to start charging for a service BUT the fact they gave zero warning is a bit off.... :/

My free PB account is only 3% of capacity so at the moment I'm under their radar, hopefully.

I will swap them over ASAP though.


All pictures in my Sticky Converter thread are now Imgur Cool

One of the guys on the car forum has just PM'd me to say all his linked images are working again.

Wonder if it's a blip or have PB had a change of heart.



Edit: Seems like a blip because they've broken again.

Looks like someone has found a ploy/workaround for Chrome

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/photobucket-hotlink-fix/kegnjbncdcliihbemealioapbifiaedg?hl=enm

Anyone care to translate

Too late, I moved all mine elsewhere. Lots of broken images across the web on different forums now.

I've moved the majority of mine as well.

Problem is the posts from people who have since stopped posting.

Does this enable Chrome to download the picks that PB have 'disabled'?

You still have access to your PB pics to download and transfer elsewhere. This Chrome extension just bypasses Pb's third party hosting block.
