Not Solved [Error Message] Broken Image
#1
Not Solved
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?

Hi,

maybe your htaccess is preventing image hotlinking?
I don't answer questions about localhost forums or forums without URL, I'm not a seer.  Cool

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
Do not ask me help through PM or Discord
