Subject RE: EN Forum Activity Summary

Concerning the graphic in the blog post:  I see the graphic just great when I go to it directly.

On the preview page, I see all other images, just not the graphic.  For that I get the usual
small red X.  (This is with IE 9.0.4 on Windows 7).


If I view source and use the URL that is in the page directly, I am asked whether I want to
download or view the image first.  The difference may be the &amp; escaping (which is
not URL encoding) that is done on the page, even though the page is not in XHTML.  It is in
HTML 4.01 Transitional.  Here's what may be the problematic URL:;mode=view

Chrome 16.0.912.75 loads the image (URL above) directly.  The preview page also loads, with
graphic, just fine.

PS: This URL,

Has the same behavior (choice of download or open) when used directly in IE 9.  It opens directly
in Chrome though.  


I think it is the cookies.  All three flavors of the URL (including "&" direct) work the
same once I remember to quote the URL here (line breaks added for readability):

I used IE 8.0.6001.18702 from a Windows XP SP3 system, and it doesn't show the graphic either.
 However, there is a privacy alert in the status line of the IE 8 window and when I click
it I am told that the cookies from the graphic's URL were blocked.

However, even though I allowed all cookies from, the blocking continues.  So
there is more to it.

attempted loading images, so I can't offer a solution.  It might be better to store a copy
of the graphic in Roller, however that is done.

It shows up for me.

What happens if you try directly:

Is there anyone who cannot load the image at that URL?

As far as I can tell, Roller doesn't store images.  It refers to
external ones by URL.
