  • Problems re-posting images from discogs.com?

    If you try re-posting images from discogs.com, using their image url's, you will find out that everyone else has problems viewing it in your forum post.

    It's because discogs.com is blocking all their images from being embedded or linked externally (to avoid the extra indirect download traffic).

    What makes it confusing is that for you (the one trying to re-post the image) the embedding will seem to work at first. The image appears correctly. But that is only because your browser 'remembers' the image data from your previous discogs.com visit. When that temporary memory of your browser is gone (and to anyone trying to view the image outside of discogs first) the image won't load.

    Solution: download the images from discogs.com and re-upload them at free image hosting websites like: directupload.de, img-up.net etc. They provide links to embedd the images anywhere.
