Morgan, If this photobucket fix posted in Rod & Tappet works out (I would give it some test time), could we add a Photo Viewing Instructions button on the top title portion of each page?

(And can you explain how it works?)
Regards
Al

Al, not really sure of what you mean could you explain so a non english speaking by birth understand what you mean. however there is a possibillity for me to create a Photo Viewing Instructions button and place it for example to the right of the blue site sponsor button and link it to a thread that expains it all..


BSAing you

Yes, In Rod & Tappet a thread was started regarding an add-on for Firefox and Chrome (and Opera) browsers that would allow the blocked Photobucket photos to be seen. It apparently works well.

I believe that the photos are still blocked to anyone not using the add-on. Therefore it may be a good idea to inform viewers that they can install the add-on to unblock the photos. So many threads have been "ruined" by this Photobucket policy.

Many visitors to this site must come from google and other search engines. New visitors may not know of the add-on, and will see so many of our threads with blocked photos. An Instruction button might catch their attention and allow them to make sense of those "ruined" threads.

As an aside, I don't understand fully how the add-on works. Is it true that those who have not installed the add-on still cannot see the photos? Here are links to my posts that I know had a large number of photos blocked by Photobucket....
