    Cool The LHC HTTP Image Fixer browser extension, for viewing old threads

    Often when browsing old threads on LHC, embedded images in posts won't show up. This is because they link to old HTTP versions of image hosting sites like Photobucket. I've made a browser extension that fixes this automatically while you're browsing:

    Google Chrome version:
    https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...gaofmgigjeknle

    Firefox version:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/fir...p-image-fixer/

    Just click "Add to Chrome/Firefox" and the little icon will appear next to your address bar. The next time you refresh or visit an LHC thread with embedded images, they should show up inline.



    Other solutions

    1. Photobucket image fixer extension
    You could also solve this for yourself by finding a "photobucket embedded image fix" extension on your browser's extension store.
    The main difference between these extensions and mine is that mine only has permission to change image URLs on longhaircommunity.com - it cannot interact with any other websites. My extension should also work for image sites other than Photobucket. As always, it's up to you which browser extensions you trust.

    2. Quote workaround
    As documented in Spikey's excellent post (and elsewhere), you can view individual images by quoting a post, extracting the image URL, and changing "http" to "https". This will work for you if you don't need to see all the images inline, just individual ones you're curious about.




    I hope this extension is useful!
    I've been using it for a few days to test it out. If you experience any issues with it, please send me a PM. You can disable the extension at any time by going to chrome://extensions.

    This was very quick for me to make, and a celebration of sorts for reaching WL.

    Unfortunately, I can't fix the Photobucket quality/watermark issue!

    Images in old threads not showing up? Try the image fixer browser extension.

    Yaaay! It works! Now I don't have to copy and paste every single picture I want to see from the old threads- thank you!!

    Mods- Any chance we could sticky this or add it to a stickied thread for all of posterity to see? Or is there any way we could do this for the whole site?
