    Photobucket Ransom Fix

    If those of you out there have discovered all your favourite threads no longer show images because of the Photobucket ransom demand, just install an add-in to your browser to fix. I used the "Photobucket Embed Fix" for Google Chrome, and all pictures on all forums show up properly again. This may only work for a while.... we shall see. There are add-ins for Firefox as well.... perhaps others.

    Interesting. SO it seems that the plug-in works from the viewer's end. So me installing the plug-in does not fix my links for others per say, but allows those with the plug-in installed, to see the otherwise dead links

    Yes, exactly. It will work for the viewer, on any forum. However it requires everyone reading your stuff to also install the plug-in. Not perfect, but better.

    That explains why I couldn't see them. Too much computer trickery for me.
