Hey guys! I know forums are pretty slow these days, but they're still an excellent source of resources that thousands still look up every day. Unfortunately, as of earlier this year, Photobucket has made that a little difficult. While the written content is still there, much of the images such as charts and logs have become a graveyard of broken images.

Photobucket decided that after 10+ years of free continued service, they'd start demanding $400 annually to offer the same service. Anyone not willing to pay this amount had their images broken. Which in effect, ruined millions of forums all across the internet.

However, it seems there's now a current workaround for this problem! It seems Google Chrome now offers an extension which bypasses the broken images! It is an extension you download, and it lets you view the images again. This isn't a fix for the board, but it is a fix for "you" personally. As long as you're viewing the forum from a Chrome browser with this extension, you'll be able to see everything normally again.

This is the address:https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q ... hLkAQWF3ZN

Or you can simply Google: Photobucket broken links fix Chrome

Best of luck and hope either Photobucket fixes this issue in time or Chrome keeps this extension up to date!

This is amazing, thankyou for this! How annoying of Photobucket, $400 is a lot of money, that's ridiculous.
