    I see now that this is a remotely hosted script. I looked at the help files and the "img src" tag is allowed. I would next look at where the image is located, it is probably not on the freeopendiary.com server. Is "hotlinking" allowed on the server where the image is located?

    Though I could not verify this I would bet that filmstew does not allow offsite image linking or as it is called "hotlinking"

    Whenever a request is made via HTTP it includes the requesting host.

    So you set a check (usually in a .htaccess file) so that only the domains you want to will be served the correct file. Otherwise, it usually sends another image saying 'nope' or whatever.
    Search the web for 'Protecting Images with .htaccess' for more info. This forum has some posts on it too, I think.
