Seems to work fine if you do it properly. Not the forum software or Imgur but operator error. Suitably edited so the pictures do show up

All forums are inherently crappy but kids these days don't like Usenet :-D

Your links are working fine.

Sorry just been having a blazing row with the Mrs due to money.

Links are, but embedding doesnt for some reason. They were working in my indicator talk image :(

Usenet, blimey, thats going back some.

I think the blame lies with Imgur to be honest.

Back when Photobucket was the place to host images linking them to the forum was easy. They have you a variety of different links for different purposes. They then decided they no longer wanted any users so changed how their service worked.

Imgur seem to make it harder than strictly necessary to get the correct link. I assume it's better for them to have people going to their website rather than allowing you to show the images they're hosting on your own website.

You had the correct link types (the ones marked as Direct Link and ending in jpg) you just didn't paste the link into the little box that pops up when you click the Image box (the one along the top after the Bold, Italic, Heading, Link boxes.

I put some imgur usage details in this thread a while back - I struggled initially but it now works a treat.
Hope it helps - can't do anything about the money/Mrs though........

That's right. The other thing that confuses people is that after you've added the pictures it still shows the command line when writing unless you hit the Preview button (hitting Preview again takes you back to writing mode).
