Known Issues/Limitations

Feature/Formatting Requirements (if any)

The URL to be used should end in an image file format - ie .gif  .jpg  .png   and should not include and additional post elements ie http://www.someurl.com/image.jpg  would be ok but http://www.someurl.com/image.jpg?q=image_post&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l5.827887j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 would be something to avoid as it has additional content that isn't part of the actual image as part of the URL, in such cases strip off the additional text after the image filename and test it by pasting it into a new tab of your web browser.
