    [CMS] CMS graphics show in preview, but only as links in the article

    Graphics don't display in CMS articles.

    We have multiple forums that I thought were set up pretty much the same. In ONLY one of our forums ( if we use the vBulletin system to host the graphics in those articles, the graphics will show up in the preview, but they only show as links in the actual article. Clicking on the link displays the graphic. In all our other forums the graphics display just fine in the articles. If we host graphics externally, they show up great in the articles.

    Here's one example: (you can back up to the previews and see the graphic there)

    I've looked at CMS permissions and can't find a difference. I've looked at attachment configuration and can 't see a difference. I've tried logging in with an account from various user groups and it didn't make a difference. I admit, I set up CMS a long time ago and it just runs so I'm far from being proficient in CMS configuration. Can anyone tell this poor soul of mine where to look and what to look for to get these graphics to display in articles? Thanks in advance.

      On the forum where the graphics don't show, this is the code I see:

      <a href=";d=1326754455" title="">reputation2.png</a>
      On a forum where the graphics do show, this is the code I see:

      <a href=";d=1363988451" id="attachment4805" rel="Lightbox_0"><img src=";d=1405621841" border="0" alt="" class="thumbnail" style="float:CONFIG"></a>
      Big difference. Now if I can only figure out WHY the difference. The good one shows the attachment ID of the file. The bad one just shows the file name. Anyone?
