@Richard Why does the below image not load in a thread ?

It works in the edit and reply windows, it even works if I copy the link and open its own webpage tab, but it won't work in a thread.

@Born2ski

Sorry, only just got round to investigating this.

So, the linked image process uses a service that grabs the hosted image and processes it to be optimised.

However, if you then use the resultant URL to link again, you end up with a self-referencing image URL that does not work.

example;

Code:
Original URL
http://www.drroyspencer.com/wp-content/uploads/UAH_LT_1979_thru_November_2016_v6.gif

Resultant Processed URL
http://skicomau.imagefly.io/w_905,n/http://www.drroyspencer.com/wp-content/uploads/UAH_LT_1979_thru_November_2016_v6.gif

Fed back in again (breaks);
http://skicomau.imagefly.io/w_905,n/http://skicomau.imagefly.io/w_905,n/http://www.drroyspencer.com/wp-content/uploads/UAH_LT_1979_thru_November_2016_v6.gif

So, I'll have to think about a fix for this issue.
 
Any updates on this issue (I've moved it to this thread), or is it purely my ISP and area being slow?

Any thread with lots of photos - weather threads, "I Love my Dog", "Ahh the Serenity, photos of Clam" etc - are all very slow to load. Music threads, and anything with lots of youtube clips, I don't even try opening.
