Hi Ladies & Gents,
I always follow responses till the end, so you're not wasting time helping me (unlike other ungrateful question-askers who just disappear).
The crux of the issue is that WP seems to be blocking access to an image, unless I use the Blog URL that uploaded the image.
Perhaps a security thing?
A REAL-WORLD EXAMPLE:
Link Using Blog URL that uploaded image: (Works)
Link from Parent Network of the Subdomain above: (No Workie)
- all I did was remove subdomain from URL
I ran into this issue while trying to setup Amazon Cloudfront Custom Origin:
Cloudfront Custom Origin Link: (No Workie)
If anyone answers this question, I'll take you out for free beers if you're ever in Las Vegas.
- I do not have any anti-Hotlinker entries in htaccess
