I did a fresh discourse installation and running through the discobot image lesson. After I failed to upload an image (dragging it from hdd only input the file link), discobot kindly provided me with a link to a dog gif:
https://example.tld/plugins/discourse-narrative-bot/images/dog-walk.gif I shall use. If I click on that link, it opens in the same window and presents me with an discourse error message that this site is either private or does not exist. If I open the link in a new browser tab, the gif is loaded correctly.
Not sure if this intended, I’m doing something wrong, or it is a bug…
