Images Broken in topic

After some update, I noticed that one of our most important topic has broken images.


In the console log, it says that the server responded with a 404 error

But when I click on the image, it loads just fine.

Can you share the URL to the topic please?

Any thoughts @tgxworld?

Bumping OptimizedImage::VERSION is apparently not that safe. This was done recently in

What happened here is that the user used the following URL in the post:

https://discourse-cdn-sjc1.com/business6/uploads/codecombat/optimized/2X/0/03e091050fe4eed8c0076eee4ab979e171ba14c3_1_690x267.jpg

Note how the optimized image version is included as _1_ in the URL. If I change that to _2_, the image loads properly.

I am not sure I want to fix this… people are not meant to be directly copying these kind of URLs around. We can make a redirect path… I guess… like we do for avatars, but it feels like such an edge case and not a great practice anyway.
