I have added effectively the same fix to our forum. Photobucket images are now visible. I'm sure it won't last forever. I'm still working on using the local copies I have downloaded for future security, but its rather complex and time consuming.

Ian,

Thank you kindly for making images appear again; this gives me greater incentive to continue writing about progress on my Coupe build.

It is just not the same without pictures, and as the saying goes a picture is worth a thousand words!

I agree picture are the key to progress but keep building and we will enjoy your pictures when they next appear. However the new drag and drop scheme is very good.

I am yet to get fully accustomed to the recent upgrade; can someone please enlighten me if it is possible to upload a short video onto the forum?

Videos aren't catered for, Victor.

Using YouTube is pretty easy though?

It appears that Google have launched an add-on to chrome to automatically fix PB links.

Ok I'm being a biff, how do I get this fix to work. I've tried and failed.

In my threads it has just worked maybe due to Webmasters actions. Try a screen refresh in your thread if photos don't show

Thank you. The photos are now showing, if that's something I did or Ian's work in the back ground I don't know. either way its a result I rely on my project thread to remind me what I was doing :w

Not long by the look of it :evil: I've just had a look at my project thread and my pics are there on page 1 :hurrah: Just as a check that they were ALL there I went to the end, page 89, pics NOT there :evil: Tried somewhere in the middle....not there! Went back to page 1 and they've gone, not there, disappeared. What the ...........!!! :twisted:

Just left the site, then returned and page 1 pics are there again, go off page and then return, they're gone!!!!
Seems they only last a few seconds for me before returning to the PB warning

Thanks Jim, that works. :hurrah: Bit of a faff, but folks can now access the pics, including me. :roll: Although I did save all my pics onto the hard drive of my laptop, just didn't fancy them being stored permanently on a third party's site. Unusually foresightful (?) of me as it turned out :mrgreen:

It's a temporary fix Geoff. Ian is still working on a script to replace the PB link in every single post with a new address (to the same pic but hosted on scimitarweb). Unfortunately he told me at Curbs that he was mid way through a scheduled upgrade on the club shop when PB threw a spanner in the works, so he still has to finish that too!!
