Hi guys.. It's been a long time no see.. I saw the problem with photobucket and I may be able to create a extension for Chrome and Firefox to make the old pictures visible for the guys that still navigate to old posts.

 

I'll get back to you guys when I have news ;)

I finally read the info on PB.  It just renewed this morning for $25.  I thought they'd shut off my links at this time.  There's a statement in their policy update that says because of my account and how long I've had it, I will continue to get 3rd party linking until Dec 2018.  That was easily worth $25.  I'll see if I can get them uploaded elsewhere and relinked before then.

Hi again guys.

 

I've finished the chrome extension. Since I do not have a developer account I did not publish the extension to the chrome webstore.

 

I've created a zip file and upload it to my google drive. If someone wants to use the extension here is the URL -> https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Byxa_5QRw6vRU19EalZ4Y0hFUFU

 

To install it you'll need to to it manually, you can follow this the Method 1 in this tutorial -> https://blog.hunter.io/install-chrome-extension-manually/

 

Tomorrow I'll probably upload the extension for the Firefox browser until then if someone finds any pages where you can't see the images from Photobucket leave me a message of what page it's so I can fix take a look and fix any problem the extension may have.

 

Until then have a good one ;)

So your saying if I were to install that extension I could see every ones blocked PB photos, or every one can see my blocked photos?

Someone that knows what they are doing needs to try this out, if it works I will need to bring some one in as the only thing I can manually do to my computer is screw it up.

You'll be able to see every ones blocked PB photos. This means that every post will have all the images in the right place, no more 3rd party hosting bullshit.

It sounds like this is something that needs to be down loaded to the forum so that everyone can see the photos if they log in.

Seems to work pretty slick.  I've only looked at a few pages on ratsun, but the PB links worked.  

When I downloaded the file, was I supposed to unzip it?  I ended up copying the folder and pasting it to the primary level of my download folder.....otherwise, when I tried to do the unpacking in chrome, I couldn't see the folder.  Once I moved the folder, it unpacked it and gave me the icon.  Thanks!!

Thank you for this, my home pc is fixed.  :)

 

I am still moving all my shit to my own server though. 

 

People with other browsers or on phones will still have broken internets :(

I've got some news,

 

I finally finished the firefox extension, here is the URL to download it -> https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Byxa_5QRw6vRTE1INEVOSnNTSms

 

You just have to install it manualy, you can follow the 3rd method on following tutorial -> http://www.wikihow.com/Install-Firefox-Extensions

 

Since someone asked me for a Safari extension I'll make one too. ;)

The problem with hosting photos on your own server is that the pictures are not compressed like they are with a third party host. This is good for high resolution photosharing, but bad for quick downloads and mobile devices. I guess it's a trade off..

 

When browsing on a phone you could be waiting minutes for a fucking picture to download.. not to mention 10. fml.

Just have to resize them down to something smaller than what your phone or whatever takes them at. I use photoshop to make all of mine smaller w/high quality before uploading them to flickr.
