For whatever reason whenever I use the BBCode on Imgur it just give a link and doesn't post a picture. Literally every other site I use I click the copy button and paste the link and the pic appears but not here. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
It takes you to a page not an image You can’t embed a page in a image tag More tomorrow
Hmmm........very odd because when I click on it it takes me to the picture of the old Smiths tach and I'm even logged out of Imgur.
Your link takes me to a page , with many images , where only the top image is the smiths tachometer. If i thumb over that image , i get an option ... to open that single image ... on its own page (view image) ... with its own url .
Its quite simple, the UBBCode won't parse the image because its lacking an image extension (.jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .png). Its been this way forever, since UBBCode was invented, which was before everyone else started with BBCode.
it really means that on this forum we use UBBCode and not BBCode so you need to use image extension (.jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .png).
Hey just took a look at Imagur to see what's up. According to the tutorial video I saw, the "bb code" link for inserting images in forum pages does provide a link in jpeg format.
So, just to make sure you're using the Full Editor option, clicking on the "insert image" icon? This will give you the [img] image code here [/img] bracketing. Click on the image icon, when i do, it gives me a highlighted "http://" which I delete before pasting my image link. In theory, my link would override the existing http:// but I've had it remain after I pasted my link in so I always just delete it straight away.

1. left-click on the image you want to post to open the screen for that image. 2. right-click on the image 3. left-click on "copy image address." 4. paste into the britbike reply window this appears, for example:
