Questions and Answers:

Q: When would an inline attachment BB Code become orphaned?
A: Typically this occurs when a post with an inline image attachment is quoted and the quoted post is edited with a new image attachment. Other times this happens when a member is sloppy and allows for orphaned attachment BB Codes to remain after deleting the attachment.
