Try [ img]https://i.imgur.com/w2ppTvd.jpg[/img] (No spaces). It's the old bbcode and it's never let me down, unless the image extension isn't allowed....

You need to use the direct image link, which in this case is https://i.imgur.com/w2ppTvd.jpg- note the .jpg at the end

Yes, I did that. and It's saying it can't retrieve the pics dimensions

The signature panel can be a lot more finicky with image hyperlinks, so it's better to go old school this one time.

 

I'm sure it's something to do with the fact the 'settings' system is pretty ancient and hasn't really improved in updates since the early days of forum boards. It's a bit creaky, but that isn't the forums' fault.

That's because you're using photobucket, which is pushing the above image instead of the one you've uploaded as they're money-grabbing arseholes.

 

Upload to another image hosting site and try again.

Thank you kindly.

 

I finally figured that out, but still had the same issues.

 

Switching to firefox and imgur helped, currently fixing everything I uploaded yesterday.

Just so you know PB is in the progress of transistioning to a PAID site so I would get all your images off PB and onto another site before all your images are stuck behind the PAID wall unless you wanna pay $300 a year
