Help, I can't seem to make images visible.

For example, if I have this link, how do I make it visible without clicking the link?
This is related to the thing I messaged you about. You have to use BBcode to make images visible, like so:

Code: Select all

Oh.

I'll make an edit because I don't know if I tried that before.

Edit: whenever I try and add

Code: Select all

[img]https://m.imgur.com/57a7ZX1[/img]
, it tells me that I need to verify the URL and that the image doesn't have specified dimensions.

That happens when I try and put an image in my signature.

When I add that here, it creates Image. Is it because I'm using m.imgur instead of i.imgur?

Whoopee, the image is invisible.

The reason is that's not a link to the image, it's a link to the page on Imgur holding the image. The actual image itself is at I.imgur.com/57a7ZX1.png (or JPG or whatever). A direct link to an image is going to point to the image, not it's containing page.

But when I try and put an image on my signature, it tells me image dimensions are unspecified. Confirm if this is the correct URL. I've tried anything and nothing works.

I still put

Code: Select all

[img]i.imgur.com/57a7ZX1.gif[/img]
in and it won't work. Help

Make sure there's an https:// prefixing your link. I'll admit I had to go looking for that bit of information.
