    Imgur images not embedding properly anymore

    Hey TGR, why aren't imgur's "huge" thumbnails not embedding properly anymore with the [img] tags? That size (1024x1024) is the best/easiest way to embed larger images, IMHO.

    the link works: (unless it's in [url] tags -- you might have to copy/paste)
    https://i.imgur.com/UqXs0aLh.jpg

    But the embedded image

    doesn't work

    Or can someone else tell me a better way to do this?

    edit, now it's working for some images after I mess with the link? Huh???

    yeah idk what the reason is, i noticed this before. you need the actual direct image link, not the thumb

    like w/your img above:

    Click image for larger version.

    That's a reasonable fix, but I really don't like dealing with the TGR "attach image" nonsense...

    Still hoping they can find a real fix.

    Not a tech guy here, but is this happening from your PC or mobile? I uploaded a photo a day or two ago, worked fine. Thanks for the details-

    Both my Linux PC running Firefox and my iPhone running Safari (I don’t have the app installed to limit the amount I post.)
