#5795 closed Bug (invalid)

External Image URLs broken when switching between Rich and Wiki text

Reported by: Michael Mraz Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: Project : MediaWiki+FCKeditor Version: FCKeditor 2.6.4
Keywords: Cc:


Our MediaWiki 1.15.1 configuration has wgAllowExternalImages set to true. This allows inline images based off a URL. This is an intranet site, we're referencing other servers on our LAN and the images are dynamically generated there.

Using FCKEditor 2.6.4, if I go to wikitext mode and add: Joe Schmoe http://server/do/presence/display?userID=51&foo.jpg

Save the page and it shows a status icon next to Joe's name as expected. Editing the page with the FCKEditor defaulting to Rich mode or switching from wikitext to rich mode causes the External Image URL to be rewritten, breaking the page. The above text is now: Joe Schmoe [[Image:|display?userID=51&foo.jpg]]

It seems to be trying to automatically download the image and host it, replacing the external image link in the process. This is not desired behavior for such a dynamically generated image.

FCKeditor was retired and is no longer supported. All active development was moved to its successor, CKEditor 3.x, that is a fully mature and far superior product. We recommend you upgrade as soon as possible.
