The Instant View Editor uses a three-column layout, so you really want to use it on a desktop screen that's wide enough. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Issue #3

IV must be generated. you set image source wrong.

Not me, article authors:
See how it's not working when you open this one image?

This website uses <a rel="gal"><img></a> for images universally.
href of <a rel="gal"> is always the full version of the image, and <img> is the preview.
But in this case full version URL is incorrect. As you can see, it's not working in the source.

To "fix" this broken case, we'd need to check some condition before setting the full resolution image src in <a rel="gal">.
The only thing that comes to mind is checking for a known image file extension in URL. But there's a problem.
It's perfectly valid for an image URL not to contain a file extension. It's also equally valid for a non-image URL to contain one. This condition can backfire and result in using an image preview instead of full version.

I don't think that working around one broken case is worth the risk of endangering valid content. Especially since this broken case doesn't even result in showing incorrect IV to the user.
