Hello all!

I have a problem with posting pictures as posts. I uploaded image to imgur.com and when I tried to post that link as image (by using BBcode) this happened:

gqTsARj_d.jpg?maxwidth=640&shape=thumb&f

Any advice?

EDIT: THANK YOU GUYS, I GET IT NOW! ;)

If this works you can quote it to see the bbcode

Edit: Well that didnt work. I will check it properly later on my PC. The issue might be with it having trouble linking to a gallery.

Don't use the /a/ links from imgur

When you upload a picture, you get two links:

c518ad1585.jpg

The one with an /a/ and the one without the /a/

/a/ stands for Album, and you're directing bbcode to an album and not an actual picture, so an error happens

You have to use the one without the /a/ to post pictures.

In this example, you would have to use the "http://imgur.com/gixL3Es" one

Once you have the link, you go to the image bbcode button:

400d429682.png

And click it.

You paste the link from before in the box (the non-/a/ one):

19d1897b56.png

AND you also have to put ".png" at the end or else you won't get an image

And now, when you click OK, the image appears:

gixL3Es.png

 

For phone just hold the image for a bit and then tap "open image on a new tab"

Once that's done, copy the link and use it on the bbcode box

Hello!

Make sure you convert your URL to a jpeg or png file from IMGUR then click on the tree icon and simply post your link.


Your link should also include "http://i."

I see you've visited how to post pictures thread, read through it carefully for the imgur part and it should include a message about "http://i" and a class name at the end such as jpg, png et cetera.

Hope this helps, if you're still having issues, i'll be online for the next few hours and will be willing to help.
