Photobucket Hotlink Fix

Post by Atomic » Tue May 01, 2018 12:44 am

Found a fix for the Photobucket created hotlinking problem. I run Firefox and it works great.

For Firefox

For Chrome

Don't know how well the Chrome thing works, but it was linked from the Firefox version.

Happy Fan Arting again!

... or just use Imgur.com instead and not give Photobucket any more traffic? Seriously, that's got to be one of the stupidest 'cut your own nose to spite your face' sort of responses I've seen out of a company in recent years (and that includes some of the crap EA has done since it reorganized around the turn of the millennium).

But are those fixes so one can continue to host one's images on Photobucket and share them, or so one can view other's images that are hosted on Photobucket, which were no longer visible to anyone?

I posted this so those who want to see items in the Fan Art and other areas that were originally hosted by Photobucket would become visible again.

Those who want to use Photobucket do so at their own desire. This is a Browser fix, not a Photobucket cure.
