Checked out Chrome [Version 60.0.3112.113 (Official Build) (64-bit)], tried both normal and incognito mode, and checked the boxes in the extensions allowing url's etc; and also tried Firefox 55.0.3 (64-bit), same thing resulted.[when tested earlier*]
Surfed to my photos spreadsheet of images [.jpg] still linked to Photobucket urls with no success
[*] in either browser; only my Imgur free hosting service image links appear.
Notification below extension in Chrome indicated to go to the 'incognito mode' lest some site tracking could be possible.
"Photobucket Hotlink Fix 1.3.1
Extension to fix the hotlinking issue in Photobucket, It's not needed to pay with this extension, the images will continue loading.
Allow in incognito
Allow access to file URLs
Warning: Google Chrome cannot prevent extensions from recording your browsing history. To disable this extension in incognito mode, unselect this option.
Wondering on the tracking.
edit. testing ...
appears to be working [partially] now for me [now*] as a "copy of image address" .... when adding in an image from my photobucket account
edit: Right now, the extension/addon doesn't work with photobucket images in this spreadsheet linked below where the images in the cells are linked via a formula link to image address. Imgur works as expected, seen at top of page.
i.e. abcared photos as html published spreadsheet = X for photobucket link https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...vYmJTw/pubhtml
X-ing fingers that the situation will improve.
