Broken image links...

I've recently downloaded and installed jforum ( 2.1.8 ) and it works fine except images are broken unless I load the image in another tab/window. If I open a new tab (I'm using firefox) and enter the url of the image as though to view it, and then go back to the forum site and refresh the page, the image then appears. If I then hit the reload button, it breaks again. Is there some sort of cache setting I've got wrong ?

FYI Smilies are all fine and I've got no problems with file permissions and I have the trailing slash in the Forum url config setting. If it helps I'm proxying through from apache to glassfish.

Any tips greatly appreciated.

Most likely it's the values you have set in the Forum URL or Website URL properties. See the Admin / Configurations page.
