Ok, here are the results...
cases (renaming and
upgrading)...my index/this specific article page gets totally ruined again
In other words, I get the very thing that made me start this topic in the first place!
Here is the offending code:
<a href="<a href="http://mydomain.com/images/articles/20040825191511815_1_original.jpg">
http://mydomain.com/images/articles/20040825191511815_1_original.jpg</a>" title="View unscaled image"><img width="270" height="189" src="<a href="http://mydomain.com/images/articles/20040825191511815_1.jpg">
It has so many mistakes I don't know what to begin with...
So it really was a Geeklog error all along. For some entirely different reason, it got somehow involved with a Netpbm error, but it's still a Geeklog error.
