I forgot to mention this earlier(I found this out on Thursday, and I am surprised this hasn't come up earlier). It seems that the links to images (replaced by (Image Removed)) for the people in Dial-up mode are not working. Everytime I click on the links I get a page not found error.

In IE, it seems to be the qoutes around the link that are the problem. (If I remove them after the fact, the link works)

In Mozilla, the "/redirect/" is gone completly from the link and the quotes are replaced with "%20".

I thought it was my PC at work, but I can repeat the error at home as well.

Just an FYI, as I am not in Dial-up mode that often.

Well that's weird -- I believe I'm fine, & haven't noticed anything odd. (And I live in Dial-Up mode.) Wrestling/Captionomics & Random/CharleyImages have both been OK for me when I've looked at them.

I'm Mozilla 1.6, FWIW ...

I think this may be related to something that Chris was working on with URL wrapping for long URLs. I don't know that I know enough about what he was doing to work on it, though.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.

Well, I can say that it works unless the poster puts in extra quote marks. This is in Firefox 0.9.1, too. So unless it got fixed before I noticed, there's nothing inherently wrong with it that I can see.

I FINALLY figured out what people were talking about here. I believe I have reworked the code that does this so it works whether the image link is surrounded by quotes or not. (Thanks to sweetroll)

FWIW, I went back and tested the links that caused the problem for me in the first place, and they all work now.

Thanks! :)
