I'm experincing some strange behavior. I was editing my latest post which includes several images linked from flickr and several images I uploaded to wordpress.com and link to. Everything was looking fine and I was making some edits using the WYSIWYG editor until I ran spell check and then all my images that were linked to WP.COM disappeared.
I hunted for them and strangely they didn't seem to be on wordpress any longer (but they HAD been showing up through several edits and saves). Typing in the URL for the image on WP.C resulted in a 404. After searching the fourms I found mention of turning of the rich text editor option, which completely illogically is not located in the Dashboard under Options/Writing like one might expect. Rather it is reached by going under Dashboard and then clicking on the link to "Update your Profile or change password", or later I found by going Dashboard/Users/Your Profile. It's a little check box hiding down at the bottom of the profile page. I assume this strange location (not under options) is due to the multi-user setup?
Anyway, clicking it OFF did nothing to fix my image links. Clicking it back on seems to of somehow magically fixed the image links and they are now working again. Including the URL that came up 404. I did NOT re-upload any images, they just seem to have reappeared.
This seems like strange bug behavior? Is it possible the spell checker messed things up, or are images randomly not being served? I typically link off Flickr for almost all my images so I've never run into this before. Is anyone else having image problems like this?
