Better way to notify users that proxied image is too large


Well-known member
When you enable image proxying via proxy.php and use embeds a image larger than max image proxy size, the image just ends up serving the default broken image proxy image. There is no indication to the end user that the image they tried to embed via IMG bbcode stage is too large.

Maybe if the image is too large, XF system can instead of showing a broken image URL, can show a URL with similar text - image too larger - max size = XXX KB or something.

The situation I've come across this is when folks use 3rd party image hosting like imgurl and use IMG tags and the image they actually uploaded to imgurl is too large and greater than image proxy max file size.
