The company ByteMobile came up with a great idea: Deliver compressed images instantly! So,
if your Provider ( e.g. Vodafone ) cooperates with ByteMobile, they will most likely deliver
compressed pictures on your mobile screen.
How this works:
You call a webpage and this webpage contains images. Your provider now rewrites these SRC-Attributes to http://22.214.171.124/bmi/[url] and there a compressed picture is waiting for you. I don't want to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this method, but for WordPress Admins and Editors, who are using Mobil to edit blogposts, this can be a huge problem.
By this method, your Image-URLs can be overwritten, so you dont save <img src="http://myurl/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/10/image.jpg" /> but <img src="http://126.96.36.199/bmi/myurl/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/10/image.jpg" />
In the end, the picture won't show up at all. BMI Wrong Image Link Fix helps now with this problem. It hooks into the 'save_post' and 'edit_post'-methods and rewrites the wrong Image URLs to the correct one.
