Diagram Designer images broken[Subject Thread] [Add Response]

Thanks for the fix!

What happened here was I added some JavaScript to a file that drawdiagram.php includes. Since this script outputs an image file, the presence of any text in its output, such as the added JavaScript, will corrupt it. So I put the JavaScript in its own file, and now drawdiagram.php is working correctly.

This page demonstrates the broken diagram issue and another strange issue:

The designer diagram shows up as a broken image.  The other strange thing is that regular embedded images on lots of pages have changed size seemingly randomly.  Scroll down and check out the four images demonstrating the movements of the pieces.  These four images were all the same size.

Everything that doesn't just show a single piece is broken. Like I said before, every one of Charles Gilman's setups using Diagram Designer is broken. His movement diagrams are broken, too.

Which ones are broken?

A lot of images created with Diagram Designer seem to be broken now. Most of them were setups for Charles Gilman's variants, which kind of makes me sad since I'm a big fan of his. Could anybody fix this?
