When photobucket went all ransomware on us, they pretty much broke the internet. There was a bunch of photos here on REMLR that folks had posted over the years which were suddenly unavailable.

For those using Chrome and Firefox browsers, there are a few extensions/add-ons out there now which will re-link the pictures so they are visible in any browser running said extensions.

On Chrome, the extension I'm using is called "Photobucket Embed Fix" and it is working fine for me. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/photobucket-embed-fix/naolkcpnnlofnnghnmfegnfnflicjjgj?hl=en

The Firefox browser version is here - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/photobucket-embedded-fix/

I'm not all that cluey with the computational apparatus, but if I can work it out, anyone can ;-)

This works for me. Thanks for that, now I can go back and edit my old threads to relink the pics to my new host.
I was having a lot of trouble working out what pic I should be looking for as my new host renames them all. :)
