Did not post, and same result as before for spike posts and mine with both the spike link and my site link.
And very carefully
but this time I'm clearing the http:// from the Optional Link URL box also, just to see.
Also noticed that I get an empty blue band just above the POST button and that is where I think the link to the image is supposed to go and I think you have to click on that to view the image.
I never use this so just don't remember ???
