I've no idea - I don't use the IMGUR app.

You have to have a opening and closing tag.

You have two opening IMG tags.

This is a closing IMG tag: [/img] ( note the forward slash )


Also, your image is more than sufficient in size for display, so keep Brawny's IMGUR resizing how-to in mind.

A tale of two Giphys . . .

I give you an img embed code:
Code:
[img]https://media.giphy.com/media/T8WcmohaJgLsI/giphy-downsized-large.gif[/img]
It's a normal IMG code example, with opening and closing IMG tags around a URL that points to an image file.


One of you keeps embedding Giphy "gifs" that look like this:

Code:
ęiframe src="https://giphy.com/embed/T8WcmohaJgLsI" width="480" height="316" frameBorder="0" class="giphy-embed" allowFullScreen>

via GIPHY

This code was neutered because its active form bypasses the board's built-in sandbox functionality
If you view that code, you'll not see an image URL or IMG tags anywhere.


== == Well, this is disturbing. == ==


I cut the image URL from this block of code and pasted it into a browser window to get the link to the actual image file, and got this:

Code:
https://giphy.com/gifs/machine-tire-retreading-T8WcmohaJgLsI?utm_source=iframe&utm_medium=embed&utm_campaign=Embeds&utm_term=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.akfiles.com%2Fforums%2Fshowthread.php%3Ft%3D324759&%3Bpage=3
The last part should be familiar to those of you who follow my threads here - it is TRACKING CODE that runs on everyone's machine where that "gif" is loaded. BTW, it's not a gif, but a video file.

Not only that, but the original code the member posted opened a hole in the internet directly from your browser to Giphy.com, bypassing any & all protections offered by the AK Files. This hole allows Giphy to send anything they want to any machine that loads that code ( views the "gif" ).

Oh, Nails, it's just a picture!

Yep, it's "just a picture", now.

What are you gonna go when the good folks at Giphy want to add some more invasive tracking code to the mix? Mebbe some code that searches your browser history or turns your machine into a bitcoin miner?

Going forward, any of these Giphy links I find ( the "image links" without any image URL or IMG tags in them ) will be deleted.

I appear to have the IMG tags. Not sure where I went wrong.

You are not using the IMG tags with an image URL. Your link goes to a "View Image" web page, not the image itself.

IMG tags require the URL end in an image filetype ( .jpg, .jpeg, .png, gif, etc )

Like so: https://i.imgur.com/ufUFwAs.jpg

What you're looking for is the "BBCode" option.

The method you've used here will be deprecated on this forum sooner or later.

BBCode is part of discussion board software.
