Insert Image has changed

For years we've been able to insert an image into a post on Be Communities.  I do this often to post screenshots from MicroStation CONNECT on-line Help, from my own website and elsewhere.

Recently (spring 2020) the image insert process leads results in an icon, not my picture.  Here's an example from MicroStation help...

It's the Reports dialog screenshot.  If you click the icon you can pop the image, but that's not how it used to behave, nor how it should behave.

When an image is inserted into a post, it used to be by using an HTML img element. It's recently changed to use a [ View: ... :0:0] element whose syntax is specific to this web site (i.e. not standard HTML).  Why?

  • Hi Jon,

    For security reasons, we have recently disabled the ability to directly imbed remote (external link) images. if you would like to embed an image in a forum post, please save it locally first, then insert it into your post using the "File upload" option in the "From" dropdown from the Insert Image/Video/File dialog.

    Apologies for the inconvenience.
