Hey photobucket-cataracted vanners,

I don't read many forums and discovered that photobucket issue on vanning.com which is a pain in the neck.
Digging a bit on google, I understand the blurred/watermarked pics can actually be seen if photobucket.com doesn't see us
coming from another site but from theirs.
The website linking to another is called the "referer". And this needs to be changed to photobucket itself
so that PB sees people not coming from vanning but PB instead.
That actually works :

on firefox, I installed an addon to convert on the fly the referer : for example Referer control but any other would do the job I guess, then in Referer control settings just add a rule as shown in the attached picture.

Then reload your vanning forum web pages and it should display the pics properly.

For images with "This image is currently unavailable", that's another story I guess.

Did any admin consider fetching PB hosted pictures to host them somewhere else to not lose them forever next time PB crashes or changes its policy ?

F.

Maybe simpler to install, the photobucket-embedded-fix firefox addon :
