    Default Photobucket workaround to view old pics

    While trying to sort out the building of a new Tyvek (Sorry Todd, I'd see if you were back in business, but cash flow...) balanced lug for a Bolger Gypsy...

    OK, the pics were gone from the post below. I noticed that the piccture description has a unique character string...

    I tried a google image search with the text in quotes: " wife made a bag for me to carry the rudder" This is the result
    https://www.google.com/search?q=%22+...w=1391&bih=704

    And the first image was:

    The link is a mile long and will not embed the image here. OH well, You can find the pictures, but it is a pain in the neck. You have to copy a line from each post to see more pics from the same thread.

    Hit the "Edit Post" button,

    Right click the Photobucket icon and choose "Open image in new tab".

    The picture will open in a tab on the top of the screen.

    If you right click that image you can choose "Save image as" which will download the picture to a folder of your choice, on your hard drive.

    From there you can upload and repost as you wish.

    There should be some sort of a class action against PhotoPhucket, they have trashed so many forums.

    For a while I couldn't even see my own photos on my Photobucket account, just the thumbnails. Then I could.

    For some reason, or maybe it's for the lack of any reason, my posts here with images hosted on photobucket are still visable. I haven't any idea why my account is special.

    Let's all hope this dumb-ass business plan blows up in their face. What are all those pop-up ads for, if not to make their site profitable? Seems sort of short sighted to stiff countless loyal users... kind of like firing Comey.

    if it is someone else's post it doesn't have an edit button or at least I can't find it. Anyway still at loss at how to see the pictures and how and why this has happened.
