Fix Blocked PhotoBucket Images for Free
« on: July 06, 2017, 12:07:20 AM »
Hey - here's a free website that let's you restore your Photo-Blockit images.

All you have to do is copy the image address from the blocked image (right click the PhotoBlockit image and "copy image address" in a Mac, not sure exactly what to do on Windows.

Then go to this website and paste the image address. You will see you blocked image, and a new BBCode. Copy the code, modify your post, and paste the new image address where the photblockit link was. Then your image will be restored.

How does it work - This was written by the son of one of the moderator on He's a programmer the images get copied from PhotoBucket and save to an Amazon web server.

I've been restoring some photos from my posts on this site. It's quick and easy once you get the hang of it.

Here's the converstion site:

2002 Moto Guzzi V11 Sport Scura
2017 Husqvarna 701 Enduro
2017 Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX
2020 Yamaha TW200

I think it's possible for an admin to fix whole threads..

Just taken this from the Vstrom forum.

If you see any "PLEASE UPDATE YOUR ACCOUNT TO ENABLE 3RD PARTY HOSTING" from photobucket, try this:

Fix for seeing Photobucket pics

If you're using Google Chrome, go to the three dots on the right side of the screen and click them. A drop down should appear. Hover your mouse over "More Tools," and when the next drop down appears, click on extensions. Go to the link towards the bottom that says "Get more extensions." In the search box, type "Photobucket Fix," and hit enter. Click the install button and once it's done, you should be able to see photobucket pictures again.

For FireFox users, click on the three bars on the right side of the screen, then click on add ons. Click search for "photobucket hotlink" and click install. Same result.
