    MARKDOWN: what does and does not work where?

    My old thread was merged with another asking a different question, derailed and then closed without actually answering my question. It was stated that the previewer was broken for showing images, does that mean that the image codes are not actually broken and where never supposed to embed images? That it is the previewers that are broken for showing that they do work? I'm a little confused on this. My question is still: Where can we post images using markdown? (Assuming nothing is broken)

    The broken image in markdown is a known issue from what I have read.

    Images in markdown are disabled. The preview showing images enabled was a bug as previews should equal the final post.

    Image embedding coding was removed from the help guide to show this: https://www.weasyl.com/help/markdown

    Could the current system be modified to convert embedded images to url links to those images instead of simply breaking them?

    The code doesn't show embedding images attempts as broken; it just doesn't show the image.

    Regardless, it's possible.

    I've added it to redmine, feel free to track the issue there;

    All,

    To summarize things in this thread...

    Image embedding in Markdown on Weasyl is disabled. (We've also modified the help to make this more clear.)
    Redmine issue https://redmine.weasyl.com/issues/254 has been added as a future feature possibility/request, to make attempts to embed images into links.

    Thanks again for the reports and the feedback.

    Thanks very much!
