FS#602 Link to image using windows share syntax
It would be nice to be able to display images located in windows shares. Originally from the mailing list:

The latter one. Don't do it.
Relying on protocols outside the Browser is always a bad idea for a web based system. Secondly DokuWiki needs to access those images directly (from the server) for caching and resizing, this would require your Server being on a Windows system or add some kind of SMB support to DokuWiki. Both is not desirable.
