    You've never been able to do this, apparently.

    I've done it many times before.
    I think I can still do it on my 1.2 forum.

    Actually I've just noticed that you did it with the URL of the attachment rather than the ATTACH BB Code.

    So you used [IMG]http://xenforo.com/community/attachments/upload_2014-8-6_17-44-50-png.79861[/IMG]

    Test:

    I just did it on my own forum :)
    I've done it here off and on for a long time
    and this is the first time I've seen the RED X.

    @Digital Doctor can you see the image in my previous post? I can see it, it's the URL of the attachment from another post of mine in another thread.

    When I do it ... I can see it.
    But when I return to the thread later ... it doesn't work.

    @AndyB - did my image in post #14 share between threads ?
    ... as you can see ... it does for a while ... and then stops.

    EDIT:

    It stopped working on my site as well.
    hmmm.

    Aside from referrer checks in place, if you hotlink an attachment like that you're at the whim of the permissions in place. If you use image proxying, it's always going to request an image (if necessary) and be treated as a guest. And if guests can't view the attachment...
