I've just made a few posts to this forum since I joined a few weeks ago. The first time I attempted to link an external image on my home site I had problems that did not seem to make any sense. I tried using several syntax examples shown on your help window "Posting Rules" at bottom of Post New Thread page, ie using urls etc. Also tried using the icon image tool too. In the end it just would not work. I restarted the thread from the beginning, logged out and back in to no avail. Also I'm using IE. So I went into your Test Forum and it immediately worked there. And then when I went back into the forum I had first used, the problem had disappeared there too and I was able to post an image.
In the next few days I added a couple images further down in that thread and had the same problem again on the last addition that for awhile prevented seeing anything but thetags around my link. And the link was of course good as one could paste it right into the browser url field and access the external page. That too mysterious suddenly cleared up after awhile but had nothing to do with posting in the test forum. Now a couple weeks later I'm back again and have the same problem once again. Currently this is what I tried to post. Using the preview I notice it is not showing the image. Seems your posting window parsing function is misinterpreting the tag syntax. So any idea what is the problem?
