    Can I embed images from imgur? If so, how?

    Whenever I try it does this:

    If you have a look at the top of the reply box you will see a picture icon. Click on the icon and paste the url link in the box that pops up.

    That's what I did in my previous post. I did it with an 'imgur' image but it didn't post it just shows that IMG tag.

    Maybe embedding with imgur Just doesn't work?

    I just tried it, if the link you put in is invalid it looks like it just posts [IMG.]. try posting something from a different source and see if that works.

    I just posted this from Imgur

    [​IMG]

    Using the "Copy Image Link" function results in what OP is getting, whereas if you open the pic in Imgur, right click on the image, then click "Properties" (if using IE) or "Copy Image Address" (if using Chrome) and paste into the image input on here.
