I think this is a major flaw/bug, but it seems that the TinyMCE in the cms doesn't
allow embedding of images that are hosted externally?
Try to paste this code in the html-mode of the SS TinyMCE and save:
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/dieterorens/2055245161/" title="Untitled by dio5, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2184/2055245161_e8b3519dff_m.jpg" width="240" height="161" alt="" /></a>
You end up with an image that doesn't have a src-attribute in the TinyMCE, and an empty src on the frontend.
Why isn't there an option to choose external embedding. Now it seems we can only use images that are on the same site. And who doesn't include flickr-images??
This is pretty critical for me. The thing I'm building is for someone who's used to wordpress. Wordpress easily allows this, has YouTube embedding (no I don't want the widget/module.. ) etc...
How can I explain this to him? Not being able to include flickr imagelinks is quite incomprehensible...
