Photobucket blocking the display of images stored on their servers has made a mess of many forums, blogs, etc.  Some folks have gone to the trouble of rehosting and then relinking their images. They are to be lauded. Others, like myself have so many images used in my own build topic as well as scattered everywhere else, I can not see taking the time and effort to rehost and relink them. However, I have found a way to make the images reappear in the topic threads with little effort.

There are three things required.

First and foremost the images must still be located on the Photobucket servers in the same file folder, etc. If the photo owner deleted their images from Photobucket for whatever reason, this will not work.

Second, to view the forum pages the viewer must be using the Chrome browser.

Third, that browser must have the Chrome Photobucket Embed Fix extension installed.

No guarantee how long this will last. PB may find a way to block the magic that it used.
Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn't mean it is good design.
