VerticalScope tech team has provided us with a temporary solution to view the Photobucket photos as normal on the forum. This solution isn't guaranteed to be permanent and as of yet only works on Google Chrome, but it's a first step in the healing process. Please follow the instructions below:
For Chrome users we came across an extension that will enable you to see the broken images hosted from PB. Another temp fix for now (who knows how long it'll hold up) but here it is:* https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...ifiaedg?hl=enm
^Click the link and choose to add the extension to Chrome. Then, you want to go to the Extensions main page. It's located in the top right corner menu button, the one that is 3 dots. Or, you can try this link: chrome://extensions/
Find the one you just added (it's icon is the shape of a puzzle piece) and check the box that says "Allow Access to File URLs"
Clear cookies in cache, load up a page with a Photobucket link, and let us know if that worked for you. We'll keep you guys updated on the solution from the techs and any other (temporary) fixes along the way. Thank you for your patience and understanding on this matter.
Please bear with us in finding a permanent solution, we are looking into members abilities to edit their threads with the forum admins.
On behalf of the team,
