Yes, the Firefox extension I added works fine. The photobucket ranson image displays for a second or two and then displays as the image posted to photobucket.

These are the extensions provided by GLadstone:

==================================
For your ease of reference:

Firefox:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/photobucket-fixer/

Chrome:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/photobucket-fixer/ogipgokcopooepeipngiikdkpmcpkaon

==================================


I uploaded the individual image for the first page of Dan's topic so the images show either as the photobucket ransom image within the text or if you have the extension, the real photo, and then the photos show as permanent attachments to the topic reply. That first of 7 pages total is here:

It's going to take a long time and a lot of work to undo the damage done by posting all of those images externally linked to Photobucket.

If you are not using Firefox or Chrome, you will just see the photobucket ransom image. If you are using Firefox or Chrome, the extensions linked above are a fix for the external image ailment.

If this is a work around is it not likely that photo bucket will change something to put an end to the work around? I don’t really understand how all this works, I only understand their purpose in doing it.

In any event, this is an opportunity to fix some messed up topics but we need to identify the most in need topics to update.

Thanks GLadstone

Hi AE_Collector,

If this is a work around is it not likely that photo bucket will change something to put an end to the work around? I don’t really understand how all this works, I only understand their purpose in doing it.

For more information about these Firefox and Chrome "Photobucket Fixer" extensions, the developer, Jesse Evers, shared the code on GitHub here:
https://github.com/TheAtomicGoose/pbfix

And, posted about it on another forum here:
http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/photobucket-fixer-see-all-photobucket-images-again.1256340/

A quick internet search for "photobucket fixer" shows that a number of other forums are using these extensions to retrieve the "ransomed" images at Photobucket while they can / this extension works.

An example:
http://www.onesixthwarriors.com/forum/sixth-scale-action-figure-news-reviews-and-discussion-/857278-photobucket-fixer-firefox-google-chrome.html

In any event, this is an opportunity to fix some messed up topics but we need to identify the most in need topics to update.

Thanks GLadstone

Indeed!
Please let us know how you would prefer we share this information with you as we come across effected topics (i.e., post the links to a specific topic and/or send a PM).

Take care,
GLadstone

Okay, I have created this topic in “Forum News”.

http://www.classicrotaryphones.com/forum/index.php?topic=19200.0

Provide links to topics in need of repair due to the Photobucket Ransom. We will see if we can get some of this stuff fixed while we can.

Good idea. Here is one of those which I "fixed" last night. If you do not have the extension, you will see the ransomeware image for each externally linked images and then the image attached with a file name numbered to match its position in the text.

If you have the extension, you will see the image twice, once in the text body and once attached.
