For example, go to my forum. On the home page, the URL to the “system” user’s avatar you see is: https://discourse.aahan.me/user_avatar/discourse.aahan.me/system/25/3.png
Open the image in a new tab, and it redirects to: https://discourse-aahan-me.s3.amazonaws.com/40c02a6e22dbe066ce83e32e0b2d09e8dd2bad4643_25x25.png
Here’s the thing. Even after enabling S3 for off-loading uploads to, the forum is still referencing the original URLs, instead of the S3 URL. This not only results in greater loading time, but also puts unnecessary load on the server.
Is this intended?
