    Hey guys,

    I wrote a Google Chrome browser extension that, once installed, will make all broken Photobucket images on any webpage visible again. To install it, if you're using Google Chrome, just go to this link, click Add to Chrome, and you're good to go! From then on, any page you visit with broken Photobucket images will show up as they did before Photobucket nuked them. You don't click on anything, or do anything else, to get the pictures to be fixed. It happens automatically. They will not be fixed for anyone else -- they will just show up as fixed for people using the browser extension.

    In case anyone wants to look at the code behind the extension, you can look at it here: https://github.com/jlevers/pbfix

    Thanks for reading, and I hope this helps!

    Jesse

    What a guy!!! Thanks a ton!!! There were lots of really great pictures lost in that deal.

    Nice add with the PB extension.The Chrome extension works great although I really didn't use it on this ride report other than to test it out once.

    It's worked well on other RR's where people get a little windy :lol3

    Do you have to enable it or tweak it ? It just shows a small dot where the picture should be on the pages I have looked at so far ??

    Wow, Jesse, you are one smart eighteen-year-old! (or maybe all the kids your age are writing code like this and making old farts like me look dumb). Either way, this is brilliant. Keep 'em coming!

    No, it should work as soon as you install it... Which pages are you looking at, and on which device (e.g. Google Chrome on Windows, Firefox on Mac, etc)?

    What are the issues for a Java script version for Safari? Looks like it would be mainly the Safari/Java script API.

    A few things -- I've never written a Safari extension before, so it could be pretty time consuming, I think only a few people would use it, and most importantly, I don't have an Apple computer to test it on.

    iPhone and iPad users use Safari?
