Broken Image - thunderclap - 2020-10-20

I have a fairly interesting problem that's stumping me. I have our forum in a subdomain and in the forum it references images in one of our other subdomains. When the post is displayed the image is broken. If you right-click on the broken image and choose Open Image in a New Tab the browser shows an Error 403 - Forbidden! message. However, if I right-click on the image and choose Copy Image Address, open a new tab and paste the URL the image opens fine. I can't figure out why this is happening.

Has anyone else experienced this? Any idea how to fix it?

maybe your htaccess is preventing image hotlinking?

Someone must have been tweaking the security settings plugin we have and didn't tell me. LOL

Thank you for that suggestion.

Another idea: your forum is using https and images are on http site.
Check your browser warnings
