Why do graphics I've inserted display as a placeholder after editing a post?  They were all there, and I can edit them back in again, but that's a royal PITA.  What is going on?

This is the thread: https://ogrforum.ogaugerr.com/...remote-control-topic

Here's one example of what happens.  It's happened several times now.

@gunrunnerjohn, I have fallen victim to the automated Crowdstack URL parser/shortener routine used. I've seen it affect links, images, and videos. If you were to click the "<>" button on your affected post, you would see that the URLs for the resources are incomplete. It can sometimes be a pain to get them corrected and stick...

 

Test image...

 

The above test image is linked as follows and mangled by the Crowdstack parser: https://ogrforum.ogaugerr.com/fileSendAction/fcType/0/fcOid/149802438915415905/filePointer/149802438915415930/fodoid/149802438915415920/imageType/MEDIUM/inlineImage/true/433mhz%2520Receiver%25204-Channel%2520[Relay%2529.png

 

The correct link is this: https://ogrforum.ogaugerr.com/fileSendAction/fcType/0/fcOid/149802438915415905/filePointer/149802438915415930/fodoid/149802438915415920/imageType/MEDIUM/inlineImage/true/433mhz%2520Receiver%25204-Channel%2520%28Relay%2529.png

@gunrunnerjohn, if you look at my edited example from your thread, you will see that the URL encoding around "special" characters is not being handled properly by Crowdstack, in this case the "["  character instead of the proper URL Encoded %28 character (which interestingly enough is a "(" character). Bottom line, they have something screwy going on.

If you want to geek out on URL Encoding: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percent-encoding
