Photobucket Fix

18 posts in this topic

Due to Photobucket disabling hot linking, many of the pictures on forums have been "lost." Much content and context is doomed. I'd fair to say that a great majority of pictures on the automotive sites, including a self-estimated 90% of the pictures in peoples build threads have fallen victim to Photobucket's rightful undermining.

However, a developer has made an add-on for both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox that negates Photobucket's efforts. I found this information on Facebook and use Chrome myself. I've added the extension and can report that things are back to normal.

Dang, just found the same thing on another site and it works for me so far!!!  I will continue downloading them directly to this site from here on but can now see my old pics and pics on other sites when looking stuff up!

Photobucket must have changed their policy.  I noticed that my pictures came back in my 1972-1993 Dodge truck lowering thread on Moparts.

Crap like this is why I always encourage everyone to upload their photos directly to the forum rather than use an external host. :yes:

Because when they get taken down, your build threads are full text with no images to go along with it.

I can't share pictures from here on the ctsv forum anymore.  The admin over there thought it has something to do with a security certificate or something.  I do notice that streetntrack.net shows up as Not Secure on by chrome browser address line now.

John would need to request his service be upgraded to a secure site and associated SSL at an added cost.  Because of all the hacking/spoofing going on most sites are going to secure sites, noted by the httpS:\\ in the URL.  I think the SSLs are roughly $100 a year.
