PhotoBucket 'FIX' - New hack found !

#1 Post by ROVER-25X » Sat Jul 08, 2017 9:47 pm

Right if any of you who use PhotoBucket know they have stopped 3rd part hosting or 'hotlinking' and basically
held all accounts to ransom for the price of $399, well some clever peeps have discovered a nice simple hack,
I have just fixed my Brake Refurb Thread with it, simply add the following to the end of each of your links and
all the photos should be resored.

~original

Here is a test for you.


Without ~original.

How peculiar, I did something with inserting the ~original then removing it, but my photos now work...

UPDATE !


This no longer works, photobucket got all up on this fix and have countered it so I have now gone
to PostImage and deleted my photobucket account now, I had that account for 10 years. :glare
