PostPosted: 13:27 - 18 Dec 2023    Post subject: Images not working for me Reply with quote

For some reason whenever I post linked images they don't show up on my screen, instead it either shows the URLs for the link or a tiny thumbnail of the windows icon for a picture.

I am using the [img] tags and closing them.

Any ideas what's going wrong?

The image tags don't always resolve well with paths. For example, Meme Generator offers this image link:

Code:
https://imgflip.com/i/89r0f7


and if you try this:

Code:
[img]https://imgflip.com/i/89r0f7[/img]


you get:

https://imgflip.com/i/89r0f7

What you need is the actually object - a jpeg or bitmap file. If you look at the image html:

Code:
<a href="https://imgflip.com/i/89r0f7"><img src="https://i.imgflip.com/89r0f7.jpg" title="made at imgflip.com"/></a><div><a href="https://imgflip.com/memegenerator">from Imgflip Meme Generator</a></div>


we can see there's a file link lurking in there:

Code:
https://i.imgflip.com/89r0f7.jpg


and if we add tags to that:

Code:
[img]https://i.imgflip.com/89r0f7.jpg[/img]


we get this:

https://i.imgflip.com/89r0f7.jpg

Going forward, you can either chop the direct link out of the html or remember that the link format is

Code:
https://i.imflip.com/<meme code>.jpg

My imgur links dont include the .jpg file extension when I copy from imgur and paste them in here so I always have to add them myself
I can only assume it's cos I is a lady scooterist victim and this place is run by
rassis biggits

fur example
paste
https://imgur.com/hB0ieg5
straight from imgur using the 'img' '/img' brackets
and i get

https://imgur.com/hB0ieg5

But:
add.jpeg to the link, ie
https://imgur.com/hB0ieg5.jpg

and voila !! cest magnifique
