    It seems sometimes I encounter some problems when it comes to linking certain images to this site.

    When seen in edit and preview, the images are showing up fine.

    But once posted, they became broken links!

    Any of the Admins or the Mods here can tell me why is that?

    Is there like an image size restriction that prevents them from showing up properly?

    edit: It seems in my haste to find answers for my predicament, I failed to notice that I posted this in the wrong section. Would I appreciate if this thread can be move to the appropiate place.

    :confused:

    Do you have an example of an image that has this problem?

    It is easily reproducible with gifs of large enough size. Things look fine locally in the edit window because of (I assume) browser caching.

    But it seems to have other causes as well, associated with some websites. I don't know about the specific causes.

    That's an attachment, and attachments aren't allowed. You must host it elsewhere such as imgur, and then link it here with the img bbcode.
