imgur-hosted images not showing up when posted

We're running 4.1.7, and for some reason when we post images from imgur (Just using the direct link URL) they don't appear on our forum, we just get a broken image thumbnail.

It seems to just be imgur, for example if someone posts a direct link to a Facebook photo that shows up no problem.

Something I can do to fix this issue? I looked at the source code of the post, I dunno, it looks okay to me.

Probably not - they may have disabled hotlinking, as I can easily reproduce on localhost 4.1.7 and live 3.4.9

Strange, so would that be an issue with our domain specifically, or all Invision boards?

It would be an issue with the target website, imgur, not allowing hotlinking of the several files that I tested out.

Example on here, using the following url:



Example on localhost, in a simple html file:


<img src="http://i.imgur.com/1FMM1xa.gifv" />


In short - it's not an IPS issue, nor is it specific to your domain.
