    I tried to insert this url to an animated gif in a post. I clicked the Insert/edit image button on the toolbar and pasted in the link, but all that appears in the post after submitting is the tag

    As you see I just tried to post your pics. Seems like maybe the links are broken?

    Your ling is borked.
    You linked to the imageshack image *page*, not the raw image.

    edit: whoops, zac beat me to it.
    imageshack no longer lets you grab the direct url of a pic that you upload (unless you're signed in)
    instead, grab the code marked Forum and paste it, bypassing this site's insert pic widget.

    Right click -> copy image location

    Really lets down the hacker rep.

    After uploading with ImageShack, click on the image and then to the right you will see "links to this picture" (or something) click on it and a direct url will be found there.

    Better test another one here...

    I'm testing this here because this is the first time I've tried to embed and image.

    Imageshack sucks since they got greedy and decided to act like the dicks they have become.

    I suggest imgur. That is where most of my image urls come from (except for some older ones) and don't require you to set up an account.

    Imgur is very good, but the 'free' account is limited to 255 uploads. An annual account isn't expensive.

    I agree. Too bad there isn't an "Epic Agree" button...

    I'm glad that a former mod directed me to imgur because I was really beginning to hate what Imageshack was leading towards.
  18. Thank you so much! But I clearly need more practice with some tools because I didn't see this until just now. Derrrr.

    Rome wasn't built in a day and neither is learning how everything works around here.

    You can always ask questions in the NMA Questions Area without fear of being trolled or insulted if you still have lingering questions.
