That could have been me. I have made some changes to the image insertion code and I was playing around with that page when I did so.

Have you seen other pages with similar issues?

This one:

But he has some code of his own inserted for the huge picture, so that may be the cause, but I doubt he'd have wanted the page to look that way.

Matt - I looked at the source code while the new editor was open. Here are the first couple of lines of code...

Code: Select all
<TABLE><br />
<table border=1 cellpadding=2><tr bgcolor=lightgrey><td align=left><font color=000066><b>Store Name</b></td><td align=center><font color=000066><b>Location</b></td><td align=center><font color=000066><b>Description</B></tr><tr><td align=left><font color=000066><br />
<br />
<a href=>ACME Climbing</a></td><td align=center><font color=000066>Spokane, WA</td><td align=center><font color=000066>Camping, climbing, footwear, snowsports, more</tr><tr><td align=left><font color=000066><br />

I don't see any problem with the URL tags. The only thing that looks different is the adition of "/" in the "<br>" tag. Is that causing the problem?

Is there any downside to just using the old editor? (Will that go away at some point in the future?)

Both <br> and </br> should work just fine. Having the slash is completely optional and is 100% harmless.
BTW, that HTML looks sloppy if you ask me. I could see there being problems with it (for example no closing tag for the font).

The following user would like to thank Josh Lewis for this post

Matt, those images are destroyed. As in non existent in the database (nor is there a photo in the directory). I tested this by playing with the id's and the image sources. You mentioned that the images linked to deleted pages before? So is it possible those images existed as just images without a image page (Example of Image Page)? Perhaps some Spring cleaning took place to remove images that had no pages (removal of "orphan images"). My site has a removal tool for images in the directory without a page attached to it.

What do I mean by image attached to it? Let's pretend the image page example above is deleted but the image is stored in the image file directory. The raw image would still exist, but could not be queried when doing a search, nor voted on, nor a page displaying it. Typically when you delete a image page it deletes the original and such, but sometimes I've seen cases where other sized images lingered.
