    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-

    Different image host?



    edit: so other image hosts work, but imgur is broken. Fascinating.

    From imgur FAQ: https://help.imgur.com/hc/en-us/arti...see-the-images
    "Are you unable to see your images on a forum?
    We allow hotlinking on forums, but hotlinked images cannot be used as content for a website, including blog posts, avatars, site elements, and advertising. You can read our terms of service for more info. If you believe your site has been mistakenly blocked, please contact us for assistance."

    TGR, it would be great to get this fixed.

    afaik TGR can link imgur images so long as you paste in the direct link to the image file (ending in .jpg or .png etc typically)

    when you upload an imgur image, you end up at a url like this: https://imgur.com/a/V4kerCT

    if you click the image to expand, right click then "open image in new tab" you will have a direct link to the image, eg https://i.imgur.com/ZQcfchx.jpg

    Click image for larger version.

    ^ this image uploaded through the tgr image loader using the second (direct file extension) method



    ^ this image embedded using img tags via the second method (direct file extension)

    the current software does not know how to make sense of imgur's url schema, and that's unlikely to change anytime too soon...

    (sorry for the gear pics)

    hope this is clear: imgur embedding/uploading works fine as long as you get a direct link to an image file (this will end in some sort of image file extension)

    This ^^^ doe not seem to be correct.

    Try responding to this post with quote to see that the full path to the image with extension is used:
    St. Anton haus:



    Where https://i.imgur.com/vlVkHyP.jpg is the full path with extension

    See this thread where some images load and others don't:

    so when I try to visit your imgur url, I get this error:

    Click image for larger version.

    which I am assuming is part of the issue here...

    edit: if you remove the "i." prefix (eg https://imgur.com/vlVkHyP.jpg) imgur redirects you to the i. version, but it still loads...



    no clue what imgur is doing here... probably trying to defeat this sort of hotlinking lol

    I see some images in the Survey thread, but not others; paths are consistent and are prefixed with the "i."

    what if you unprefix them? as noted above, the i. prefix was causing at least one image not to load (for me anyway)

    Removing the "i." prefix does not allow images referenced with img tags to load either. See the thread.

    Got this:

    Hi Chester Tartsnatcher,

    Thanks for writing. Unfortunately that site has been blocked from hotlinking due to abuse of Imgur's terms of service (http://imgur.com/tos). Imgur's ToS prohibits using Imgur on sites with classifieds sections as this constitutes commercial usage.

    We recommend using Imgur's embed unit instead of hotlinking. More information about the embed links can be found here: https://help.imgur.com/hc/en-us/arti...743-Embed-Unit.



    So try this:

    <blockquote class="imgur-embed-pub" lang="en" data-id="Y6cndVC"><a href="//imgur.com/Y6cndVC"></a></blockquote><script async src="//s.imgur.com/min/embed.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

    which doesn't seem to work

    Because of gear swap. Seems a little weird regarding the definition of commercial use when tgr per se doesn't make any money off gear swap, only inDUHdividuals. But hey, I'm no lawyer.
