This post contains output examples of the updated link handling:

images hotlinked for the HTTP and HTTPS examples are from here:
https://id242.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/20/attached-photos


This image is hot-linked to a domain on HTTPS.
IMAGE HTTPS:
[Linked Image from id242.com]

IMAGE HTTPS wrapped in URL BBCode:
[Linked Image from id242.com]

** if enabled, linked images from HTTP urls will get a link instead of trying to imbed. the hosted domain is displayed so the end user can decide if they want to click it or not.
IMAGE HTTP:
[Linked Image from id242.com]

IMAGE HTTP wrapped in URL BBCode:
[Linked Image from id242.com]
