[BUG] Can No Longer Embed Pictures in Poll

Recommended Posts

I'm no longer able to embed pics from Imgur into a poll. I'm using the exact format for the pic url that I've used in the past when creating Choices under each question in a poll. I tried both of these versions in the poll, both of which have worked in the past:

<img src=https://i.imgur.com/VwCQb3R.jpg> and

<img src=https://imgur.com/VwCQb3R.jpg>

Neither one produces a picture. In the poll, it just shows up as a clickable link. You can see some examples in the Test Zone where I tried several different link codes provided by Imgur - nothing. I'm stumped. I've done several polls in the past 2 - 3 years, and the pictures always appeared. Did something change? Is there a new format that I need to use?

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply. It works when you're just posting in a forum, but it doesn't work when you're using the poll feature. Polls always required a special format to embed pictures. The picture url had to be placed within brackets and some extra characters - img scr at the beginning - here's an example :

<img src=https://i.imgur.com/VwCQb3R.jpg>

Typed this way, the picture appeared in the poll. I guess the Poll feature is set up differently from the regular message boards. Anyway, I tried using just the photo url (like you showed above), and it didn't work. I tried every other picture link that Imgur provides (Image Link, Direct Link, Markdown Link, HTML, BBCode, and Linked BBCode), and none of them worked - no picture, just a clickable link. I pm'd the Shopping Channels moderator, CuriousParker, who also tried several different ways to get pictures to show up, and none of them worked, which is why CP suggested I post the problem to the Bugs forum. Maybe the recent software update changed how you have to format picture urls in the Poll feature?

Huh, weird. I'll ask the devs what's changed. In the meantime a temporary -albeit- inelegant solution is what I've done here.

Thanks, @SilverStormm - your temporary solution is a good idea. I'll try it.

This is a known bug that currently no patch is available for. There is a patch in testing presently, and upon approval this fix will be included in the upcoming 4.4.10 maintenance release.

Soon-ish^.

Thanks for the update, @SilverStormm. The temporary solution you came up with is working well in the meantime, so thanks for that too! The next poll is a few months away, so it sounds like the bug might be fixed by then.
