If posting picture needs a tutorial, there’s something wrong

lot of peaple have issue with posting pictures here because its non intuitive

it is not as simple as copy and paste as you say....

paste does nothing on ios

I’m on IOS and it works just fine for me as I’ve proven in the videos on the front page and here...

Ta-Da!!

 

The reason for the tutorial is when the forum updated its software it changed the way pictures were posted for the better I might add but many were confused on how the new system worked.

 

As for actual posting issue 99% of the time is people forget or use the wrong url or try and manually add the extension which doesn’t work

I opened the URL directly and it doesn't animate even then, so it's something in the way you upload it (as even the imgur direct link doesn't animate).

I still use imgur and I find that it still works fine. Just don't use the mobile app, use the desktop version in your phones browser (eg Chrome).

  • Save your image to your PC or device
  • Upload to imgur (add images)
  • Click on the image then on this next screen  click Copy next to BB Code:
  • Spoiler

  • The copied link can then be pasted directly into your forum post.
  • If the image is large, paste it into a spoiler tag like this: (the eye icon in the posting tools at the top of your post)
  • Spoiler

  • The steps are exactly the same for Desktop or Mobile device

Tip, the url that you paste must look like this with image tags and the image extension: 

[img=https://i.imgur.com/uT3C2tY.jpg]

Alternatively use the direct link and just copy and paste it here as it will embed automatically in our current forum version.

Absolutely. Once the image is hosted the rest is easy, as stated above...

I was just adding because you had circled the img tags/BBCode one, which also works, but will be deprecated in a future version of IPB unfortunately, so pasting the direct link without img will also work and is what I recommend people use, is what I meant. :p
