What happened to the pic

in this post:
http://thefiringline.com/forums/show...80#post5690380
It used to show up but now is missing after switching to the new server.
The link is still in the post but it's "invisible"

Good question! As you said, the link is there but the image doesn't show up in the post. If you go to the image itself, it still exists: http://imageshack.com/a/img580/4458/9opu.jpg
So that says it's not your problem, but it appears something is broken in the image ( IMG ) code. We'll look into it.

Curiouser and curiouser! Another image you used from imageshack works here: http://thefiringline.com/forums/show...93#post5689993

Now, I'm not sure if it is the parsing of IMG code.

Imageshack is doing some kind of funny redirect/translation of the link in the picture that won't show but is allowing the other link for the picture that will display to remain as written.

I can change the format of the link of the pic that won't show so that it matches the format of the link of the pic that will show, but Imageshack won't allow that link--it rearranges/redirects things.

Here is the link the way it should appear to display the image properly:

Here is what Imageshack is redirecting/translating the link to:

It's an Imageshack issue, in my opinion. If it would leave the url alone, I am confident that the image would display properly.

I don't believe we did anything. It appears ImageShack fixed the problem of translating your URL to a different format. Now the link goes straight through unaltered, and the image magically appears.

Hence the "whoever". As long as it shows up again that's what really matters
