Placeholder for broken images

    I hate to see posts with broken images, so I end up using a simple jquery script that I found in stackoverflow to replace the error image with a placeholder:

    So, before </body> add:

    jQuery("img.bbCodeImage").one('error', function () {
        jQuery(this).attr("src", "/styles/default/xenforo/placeholder.jpg");
    }).each(function () {
        if (this.complete && !this.naturalHeight && !this.naturalWidth) {
    Don't forget to upload the placeholder image to your server!

    I placed this in the suggestion forum so this can be added to the default theme and because I don't have privileges to posts this in the tips section :)

    Thanks for this!

    If you don't want to edit page_container to put this before </body>, it works to put it in the ad_thread_view_below_messages template.
