Cannot insert images on forum.

By TeaCupKnight January 30, 2014, 02:55:27

I've been trying for a while, but for whatever reason I don't appear to be able to insert an image into any posts I make.

-I've tried using the button and using the url from both tinypic and imgur. This just results in a blank space as though I hadn't typed anything.

-If I manually enter the bbcode for the image I just get a broken jpg symbol at the bottom of my post.

-Just leaving the url creates a 'click here' link (which I believe is the correct workings for entering an url)

I've tried reuploading the image for a different url and this did not work either.

Is there any chance I've uploaded an image that's too big? or maybe in the wrong colour profile? It seems unlikely..

Any help would be appreciated.

P.S. Sorry if this is in the wrong forums..

Most likely you're doing it wrong. The image link should be a full path (including file extension).
I.e
Bad example: imgur.com/8VHf3e5
Good example: i.imgur.com/8VHf3e5.jpg

In case of big image, post it as large thumbnail:
i.imgur.com/8VHf3e5l.jpg

etc

Awesome that fixed it!

Thanks!

How odd that I've never had to do that on any other forum i've been on..

Thanks for your help!
