I migrated some of my content to an alternative answer, but the image links inside the post are not resolving.

They are listed as things like:

![japanese mon][3]

In the text, and then at the bottom, literally

[3]: https://i.sstatic.net/tcm7O.png

Surprisingly, the images are loading fine here. I'm not sure what the problem is there.

There must have been a problem with the copy-paste you used. The spaces in front of each of the numbers [3] and so forth were not normal spaces. Deleting them and adding in 2 spaces again fixed the problem.

  • Adding spaces back isn't necessary btw.

  • I like to add them because the image auto-uploader thing adds them. And it looks nicer when editing.

  • Copying the exact source and pasting it here on Meta works though, oddly enough.
