Hi Fred
Mine showed up between the last two scans, so it caused a bit of panic.

Right , Norbo has come up with a formula to get the photobucket pics back and I just tried it and it works !

Go into your thread and click "edit"

The long code for the pic appears

Where you see a "jpg" type in "~original"

Don't forget the little squiggle
If there is more than one jpg then type after each one

so example

jpg~original

Yes, tried it on my posts yesterday too, amazed it worked, will update some other when I get time. Think I'm still going to find another hosting site as well.

There is no need to edit original links, a plug-in extension is available for Chrome & Firefox (not IE) to fix the issue. Once installed all photobucket links will work as normal. Here's how....



Photobucket Fix ...

If you're running Google Chrome:

Click on the three dots on the right side of the screen;
A drop down should appear;
Hover over "More Tools";
When the next drop down appears, click on "Extensions";
Go to the link towards the bottom that says "Get More Extensions";
In the search box, type "Photobucket Fix";
Click "Enter";
Click the "Install";
Once the install is complete you should be able to see Photobucket linked photos again.

If you're running FireFox:

Click the three bars at the top right of your screen;
Click "Add Ons";
Click in the search box and search "photobucket hotlink" ... Photobucket Hotlink should be the first result in the list that's generated;
Click install;
Reload the forum.

Happy New Year.

Thanks for the Firefox instructions, seems to work! Nevertheless I'll still continue to transfer all my photos from Photobucket and when that's completed permanently delete my account.
