I just went to my Photobucket account and it seems they have done it to us again. I wanted to retrieve some pictures and upload them on my computer for future use like getting the pictures back into the "Proper prop" thread. Well, any of my pictures that I had used for 3rd party hosing are locked up!! All that comes up is Photobuckets announcement to upgrade for the $$$$!!!

I was wondering if you were going to repopulate that thread with the pictures. Shame you cant. An awful lot of Alan's Hurricane thread is now pictureless too. I gave up on PHotobucket many years ago when it got to slow to use and always locked up. Glad I did. There must be some way to get your pics back. I cant believe photobucket is going to survive this silly $400 a year thing. Must be a last ditch effort to survive.

EDIT: You sure Pete? I just went into my old account, right click on photo, select "save as" and boom, on my desk top.

Try it again.

Now I was able to load my computer with a few pictures off Photobucket. I don't know what was going on before?? I didn't do anything different and no Gary it's not my dial up! Up here, the alternate to the copper is an dish antenna to a cell tower that is just on the verge of being too far away. They have been in measuring the reception/transmission and told me they would not guarantee the service.

Let me say that I really ain't very geeky at all but ..........................

A couple of hours ago I couldn't see pictures in the "Proper prop installation" thread.or about a zillion other pictures in other threads where people used Photobucket

Then I downloaded a fix for the Photobucket issue for Google Chrome users in the link below.

Then I went back to the prop thread and a handful of others and all the pictures were there.

So if you use Chrome, give it a shot. It's in the Google Chrome webstore

If you don't use Chrome, maybe you should.

There's also a fix for Firefox users floating around out there.

Google Chrome photobucket fix

If the link doesn't get you there, you want to go to the Chrome Web Store, highlight extensions and in the search box type in Photobucket embed fix and two fixes come up. I used the second one by Jesse Evers

Almost forgot this ..................

PETE LERN TU SPEL or in other words fix the title of the thread

The forty something page Hurricane thread as an example was full of nice pretty pictures again.

Actually all of CCF seems to have pictures again.

What did I misspell? I will admit that I rely on spellcheck a lot but I went back a few posts and nothing shows up. BTW Ken, Is there anything else you would like to work me over about? It seems to be a habit of yours.

Google Chrome photobucket fix


I'm going to call jbear later for advice.    I've tried multiple times to change my browser to chrome without any luck of bypassing the Photobucket problem. Ken, I haven't given up yet and will keep trying. Thanks for the link.

Great fix Ken. Thanks. Nice to have the photos back. .That is a fix I would have never guessed to Google. I hope it foils Photobucket's stupid attempt at extortion, tho you would think they would come up with a way to get around it, now that someone figured out how to get around their ploy.

I have IE and Chrome, Not my choice, work computer. Chrome is my usual go to but the down side of chrome and CCF is the search tool Under IE you can do an "advanced" search but under Chrome, I cant. Just enter a word or phrase. No option on who or body or title or group of posts or dates. Cant ever find anything like that. Now if I want to search and see pics, like I just did for the Hurricane thread, I found it in IE and then copied URL over to Chrome. Not that hard, I guess.

Pete. Not sure by what you wrote, but you understand you need to load and use chrome and then add the photobucket fix, correct? Sounds like you might just be doing one or the other.

In thinking back, It may have been the No 1 thread that I recently went back to that was missing all the photobucket photos and not the Hurricane thread (also missing them all) I was disappointed that all the historical stuff Alan had posted about the No 1 was gone, so glad to see all that back too.

Hi Larry

I do my searches "Pete style".

At least I think I got this from Pete, but on Google I just type in Correctcraftfan followed by a name and what I'm trying to find. Name isn't necessary but it can help.

An example would be Correctcraftfan 75 Tique barefoot

It seems to work good, sometimes you get a lot of results to weed through though.

I think that if you did Correctcraftfan 8122pbrainard you might break the internet with all his posts

Larry,
I was able to load Chrome but it the Photobucket fix extension I'm having a problem loading. I'll keep trying! Understand I feel my computer skills are not too far above John's!

LOL...so true Pete...

As I was reading this thread getting confused I thought...."I need to call Larry for a walk-thru"
Would be very nice to have access to all my pictures again.

Has anyone tried to load the Photobucket extension repair to an IPad? It doesn't seem to want to load for me now that I have installed the Chrome app.
