    I'm unable to replicate this issue on my end, which makes tracking it down significantly more difficult.

    While the preview is showing broken images, could you right click on one of the broken image icons and choose "Inspect Element" and send me a screenshot of what you see there? Then hit refresh to restore the image and repeat the process? If you'd like to avoid screenshots, you can also just hit ⌘C while the img element is highlighted and paste the two results into a code block in your response.

    Here's the text copy, if that helps
    broken image: <img
    working image: <img

    Besides the "v" parameter changing, I notice the "?" in the directory
    name is not URL-encoded in the broken one.

    You're correct, it appears in the broken version that the ? is not being translated to a percent-encoded version as it should be. I'll have to dig in to figure out where this is failing.

    It appears you named the parent directory with a question mark, so the obvious workaround right now is just to remove that question mark from the directory name.

    In the meantime, I'll try to figure out where that's not being encoded properly (or being prematurely decoded).

    Renaming the directory works. Thank you for helping me figure out what
    was wrong.
