Default IMG problems

Has there been a recent change to the forum config to limit what types of images can be displayed with the IMG tag?

For example, I have posted this image for years when explaining how an AR bolt locks into an AR barrel extension:

http://ar15barrels.com/tech/ar15bolt-extension.gif

But now it will no longer display with the IMG tag:



I know the file/hosting is good because it shows up in a browser just fine when the URL is refreshed so I an not seeing a cached copy.

I recently made up this image to explain that the rear takedown pin hole in an upper receiver is actually a slot:

http://ar15barrels.com/pics/parts/ar-flattop.png

It won't display either:


I know that .gif images are commonly used for tracking.
I didn't think that the same was true of ,png though.
Are .gif and .png files now blocked from use in the IMG tag here?

Are you seeing the images displayed inline or were you clicking on the links?
I have links above, followed by IMG tags with the URL for the exact same image that is linked.
The 2nd is a PNG file.
Can you see other .PNG files on the web?

Both are links to working images on my Firefox(Laptop) and chrome(Laptop).
Tapatalk app shows pictures, and chrome on my android phone shows links in normal version, and pictures in whatever the non normal version of the site is called.

Edit:
When Im logged in and go the the bottom left and select iPhone in the Quick Style Chooser and on that page go to the bottom left and select normal the pictures show up like 95% of the time on my laptop.

hah!

Good catch.
I am sitting at my laptop and switched to the iPhone style and both the IMG tagged images appear inline like they should.
It's the 1.0 and 1.1 styles that are blocking them.

A couple of days ago I added a CSP meta tag to show insecure items (HTTP) as secure (HTTPS). Unfortunately it doesn't do the same for third party links so if the image you're posting is not hosted on a 'secure' site it doesn't display.

For now I've removed the tags since they seem to have a negative impact on usability.

No.
The best hosting site is your own server.
When you host on other servers, you are usually giving them the rights to what you are uploading.
I would rather completely own and control my own content.

The problem here was ONLY some calguns server settings keeping the content from being displayed.

People used to say the same thing about photobucket being the best because it was free.
Look what happened there.
The SAME THING could happen to imgbb and then you will be looking for some other site to move all your photos and you will have all your old content with bad links.

Looks like you fixed it, I’m running Calguns 1.0 on my iPhone and both images in the first post appear now.
