Hi fellas,

Found this on another forum. Yet to test it but apparently it works - for now, at least.

Basically, if you have chrome, download the app and it should fix all the broken links.

Willsy yeah FB hotlinking does work but apparently facebook has been known to change links/extensions etc so it can at times make images inoperative

It'll only work from non-private sharing to. I.e. things like my infamous photos page i can link it and it usually stays the same.

If I was to link it from my account people who are friends with me can see. The rest just comes up with a red X box.

So I guess could just make a page 'i.e. Willsys restorations' then copy the link across thataway.

Use fb as a image hosting platform. That's pretty much what mine is for. I've got backups and un-edited pics so I'm not concerned.

In saying this I've done zero thing about my photo bucket. It's probably gone to s*#t now.

15 hours of coding and they managed to get back all the pics and then hosted them on their own server with an adjustment to the image address on each pic. http://www.gmh-torana.com.au/forums/top ... cket-mess/

"The images are permanently in the GMH Torana Photobucket Cache server even if they took down Photobucket today the photos we have captured will remain working as I have updated all of your posts, comments, messages and signatures to point to my servers for the images instead of Photobucket.   So this is for all posts prior to 12/08/2017 so I highly recommend not using Photobucket and hold off for when GMH Torana Bucket comes online.   I'm ironing out the kinks for it now.   So expect it to be live in the next few weeks."

We've been speaking to merve about that coxy. He is aware of the coding fix and had a script that he was trying out to fix the same issue, much like the google chrome extension i linked earlier. He just seems to have gone off the radar for the moment. Also needs to fix the ozgem image uploader so that it actually readjusts sizes....
