Embedding images from XenForo

Maybe it's just me doing the wrong things here, but I can't get the image embedding from an XF forum working.

When right-clicking an embedded image in an XF forum and copied for implementing in another forum, it's just not working. And looking at the copied code, it's no surprise either.

How should this be done?

It works fine for me.

What is the copied code you speak of? Make sure you are copying the image location (http://...). Most browsers have an option to copy the image location when you right click on an image. I am using Firefox which has that option.

If that forum has full size image viewing restricted for guests, then that is why the embedded images won't work on another forum.

The image directory is php protected.

I do exactly as mentioned here, and the "other forum" is a standard vBulletin 3.8.5 installation. I'm at loss of what I'm doing wrong here :(

It can be any picture, but let's take the XenForo-picture embedded by Digital Doctor.

The copied code is:
HTML:
http://xenforo.com/community/attachments/xenforo1-of-3-gif.13603/?embedded=1
As far as I know it's correct - but it refuses to show up when embedding in other forums. I've tried both vBulletin 3.x and 4.1.2.

Hotlinking is prevented from XenForo.com, as far as I am aware.

Try it from your own site to here and it should work, assuming you don't have hotlinking enabled and allow guests to view attachments.
