my forum is displaying external linked images as broken, yet they work when you go directly to the source.

the problem seems to be that the forum is somehow converting an http link that a member posts to https.

this post is from one non ssl/http site:
https://www.allscaletrek.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=4704

and another from a second non ssl/http site:
https://www.allscaletrek.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=133

i have tested the links on phpbb.com and another phpbb site and the images work, so it's something going on with my forum. do you have any idea's what it is and how to fix this?

Is it fixed now? Or I'm not seeing an issue when viewing either of those two links. Is the problem you're seeing in the top post of each link? If it's not the top post, can you link to the specific post that demonstrates the issue, within the multiple pages of posts available in each of those threads?

If the problem isn't already fixed, maybe even include a screen shot of what you're seeing at your end, in case its not what we're seeing here.

well I'll be damned. I have been working on this for some time and all of a sudden it is working. I bet it was the host finally decided to do something after saying it was not their problem.

semtal, did you do something with the host?

it ended up being a problem with something the host did. after denying it was their problem, they have now fixed.
