#2189: Forums: Detect non-image URLs in <img> tags

 With the upgrade to bbPress 2.x, it's now possible to insert images
 directly into support forum posts.

 However, most new forum members incorrectly use `<img>` tags for web pages
 instead of images, which results in a broken image in their post. A recent
 <img src="https://gyazo.com/c57448863a8cd682d3bc6ba718506547"
 alt="Shipping Options" />
 The URL here is a web page with an image, but not the an image itself.

 This should be more user-friendly. We could probably detect that the URL
 provided for `src` is not an image and automatically convert the code to a
 regular link in that case:
 <a href="https://gyazo.com/c57448863a8cd682d3bc6ba718506547">Shipping
