Imgur links

Discussion in 'Forum business' started by Threshold, Jan 27, 2019.

  1. I recently switched from Safari to Google Chrome (I know) and any embedded Imgur photos show as a broken IMG tag and I have open the link in a new tab and then refresh that tab to view the photo.

    Is there a work around or am I missing something?
  2. That's due to people posting them with "https://" rather than "http://". Imgur has decided they don't want people embedding stuff from their website as they'd rather be a meme website like funnyjunk where everything is viewed on their page.

    So it's more to do with user's posts rather than your browser. Using "" makes the page go through PJ's proxy and basically cancel out imgur's no-embedding-allowed shit.

    I use tinypic for posting on the forum. Works like a charm.
  4. imgbb is also wonderful.
  5. Could we add some code to the image embedding that changes "https" to "http" for imgur links?
  6. Wait I didn't know there was a workaround for this. Now I don't have to upload an imgur gif to giphy everytime I want to use one.

    This is a thing that’s possible? Would it work retroactively to save all the broken images or just be in effect moving forwards?

    Most web browsers now restrict loading insecure (non-https) content from within securely loaded pages, so no, it won’t work.
