    I am following the instructions: get correct link from Imgur, hit the folded over bit of paper icon, past and hit space, and nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

    ok I figured it out - I need the BBC code but have to delete the img bits, there is no correct link (or none I can find) that works 'out of the box' so I'll have to edit the link in Text Edit before using it here. Not exactly straightforward ...

    @NPP ; - which bit of the guide here, isn't working for you?

    Or are you using a device that's not listed in that guide?
    Having trouble posting images here?  This might help.

    hi @TTony I'm using Safari on a Macbook Air running Big Sur. As I said in the post above I can't get any of the links offered by Imgur to display an image. I do get a result when I copy the link labelled BBC code which starts and ends with (img) and manually remove the (img) at the beginning and end before posting it into the image link box. 

    I also run a German keyboard in case that matters. 

    Many thanks for your support!

    Maybe I should try a different browser and computer as well but it seems I've found a workaround.

    @NPP ;; - just fired up my MacBook/Safari and Imgur errors on me - can't even get to my images to test out what's going on.  I'm guessing that might be a privacy setting thing because it's working fine on Windows and iOS.

    One thing that does trip people up sometimes is this part of the process;

    • Top right of the homescreen is a little (round) button with your initials/avatar.
    • Click that button, and from the drop down, select Images.


    Access your images by doing the above,  *not* from your Imgur account homepage.  Select the image you want to embed, then Copy the link in the Direct Code box and paste here via the page-with-turned-over-corner dialog box


    And that should be that.

    @TTony this is where I may be going off track then, right from the beginning. I don't have an Imgur account, I just upload the picture and get the link. Given that I've just started a project (that's the pic I uploaded) I'd like to document on here I should probably set up an Imgur account now.

    What code does the site actually use? If I want to post say 5 images at once without clicking and pasting each direct link separately, what do I use? BBCode? HTML? etc

     If I want to post say 5 images at once without clicking and pasting each direct link separately, what do I use?
    Easiest option for that @vaticancameos ; is probably to drag and drop the images directly into your post, and host them here.

    I think any of the usual hosting sites require you to at least specify the address/reference for each image separately, so a separate direct link for each.

    Ah, will the forum convert just straight-up http direct image links? Lets find out -
