System bot messes up images inside spoilers


It seems system bot messes up images under spoilers.
Transparent background also broken.
Is there a way to use images from external site without making them local?

It seems that img tags also not helping, everything just messes up again.

It seems you added a lot of HTML markup, you should probably avoid that.

And you can’t avoid remote images being downloaded, it’s a core feature of Discourse that prevents topics from breaking if external resources disappear.


The solution I used works on GitHub and mkdocs markups.
Adding spaces helped:


What about transparent images? For some reasone one is broken:
However another one is working fine:

Assuming it doesn’t support semi transparency :frowning_face:

This is not Github :man_shrugging:

Yeap, I see, I just thought engines basically the same, especially that it works in preview and then system bot brakes everything…
Thanks anyway, problem is kinda solved (except for transparent images)!

@bartv could BA have support for semi transparent images?
I know that this is not essential and might be turned off due to some performance or storage reasons, but maybe…

It’s already supported; check the same image using the light theme:


Yes, here it works. But in header it is not the case.
Editing image:

Image on site with proper opacity:

After system bot uploads a local copy:

Ah I see now, we do convert PNG to JPG in some cases because of storage reasons. I don’t think this needs to be changed as we only had one complaint about this in three years :slight_smile:

Ok, that’s exactly what I thought :sweat_smile:
Yep, that is not essential, just nice to have!
Thanks again for help!
