img.src removed in future versions?

My colleague Jared has been reporting issues about Yahoo! intercepting images (http://developer.yahoo.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=1208) and mangling them.

One way to go around that is do load dynamically the image from our server

CODE
document.getElementById('myimgtag').src = 'http://www.myserver.com/mysuperimage.gif'

We're currently using this in our app. Will this be removed? Mangled in the same way?

Thanks for the precision,
PL

  • Hi Pascal-Louis,

    That is currently the only method we have for bypassing the cache process on the platform. Several developers are currently using this method and it is not something that we are looking to remove / sanitize at the present time. This may be changed when the image sanitizing process is adjusted to not cause these issues.
