Once we upgraded the wiki, the images-as-links for badges stopped working on the Promotion page.

I have a vague recollection that some version of MW removed support for loading remote images as images, so we might be forced to upload the images to the wiki itself (for the illustration; for the actual URLs users can embed, we'd still want to use cbo itself). Or maybe we move Promotion back to cbo, for all that it's changed in the past few years :P

At the very least, we need to investigate the current template and see if we can make it work again.
Aha!

From the very bottom of http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Images

"If it is enabled on your wiki (see Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages[1]), you can also embed external images. To do that, simply insert the image's url:

http://url.for/some/image.png

Currently, embedded images cannot be resized, but they may be formatted by surrounding MediaWiki markup or HTML/CSS code.

If this wiki option is not enabled, the image will not be embedded but rendered as a textual link to the external site, just like above."

So this looks like it's as simple as flipping the variable back to what it was.

(But not the slightest idea how to do so.)
