    Third and last data point -

    Found a random picture from a web search and grabbed its url and put it right in. Search term - Ham Radio. At least she is cute....
    Partially interesting sub data point - I've never put an image url in and forced it upstream before. First time for everything, huh?

    For what its worth, all seems fine from CN86jc.

    This was a test of the WZ7U radio alert system. Had this been an actual alert, odds are I would be buried under all the rubble and no amount of wishing it weren't so won't help.

    ABANDON-THREAD.gifI'm back out!

    Even a moving gif of an appropriate size seems to work. All is well on the western front.

    Charles, when I click your attachment link, I get "Invalid Attachment specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator"

    Which I did.

    Luke, I noticed you're removing the extra attachments. Thank you. I'll start doing it myself when I post.
    Question: How does it look on your end? Are you seeing two attachments or text stating an attachment plus actual attachment?

    I'm seeing a text reference to an image, then an actual image. I've been viewing the posts in source mode, and I think it's an issue with the file counter that assigns an attachment number to an attachment. The text reference never points to a valid image, and is always one less than the actual image number that displays.

    Example

    I've had issues with the display not ignoring the tags within a set of code tags, but gonna try this again.

    In Charles' post here: https://forums.hamisland.net/showthread.php/31296-HBD-Dan-mw0uzo?p=670252&viewfull=1#post670252
    , both the text reference to the invalid image, and the image are displayed.

    When viewed in source mode, the post appears like this:

    Code:
    {ATTACH=CONFIG}16531{/ATTACH}{ATTACH=CONFIG}16532{/ATTACH}
    Note that I had to use this bracketing: {........} in the code window to keep it from displaying the image instead of the usual square brackets. Apparently, tags, even within a code window, are still acted on.

    In this example, attachment 16531 is not a valid. An error message is displayed:


    Image 16532 is the one being displayed.

    I can never recreate the error, but I'm running Linux (Ubuntu, Mint, Bodhi) most of the time. The SWF add-on is configured to ask 1st before activating (in Firefox).

    BTW, to view a post in source mode, click on the top, left-most button in your editor:

    I think this only works on your own posts. You would have to quote someone else's post to see it in an editor. We can edit any post, but as a rule, we usually don't unless its to correct an error.

    And, finally, I had no problems posting either of the two images above. (Ubuntu 18.04.3 / Firefox 70.0.1)
