    I stopped using imgur because that happened even with the direct link. And the app messed up all the time. Clicking login and it just refreshes the page and brings me back to the login.

    I use imgur app on my phone (iPhone) and have zero issues. There are a few things that can make it not work correctly though (or not work as you want). When I upload I always select hidden in the drop down.

    To get the link click on the image you want in your images.
    Click on it again and the background will turn black and an icon will appear on the bottom of the page. (share icon will not work).

    Click on the 3 sided box with up arrow icon.

    No more Imgur for me.
    I use imgBB now. Pretty easy to use.

    Not trying to detract from people that have more important issues (i.e. problems uploading photos, whereas mine is just problems viewing them), buuuut...Anyone have any idea?

    Curious as to which browser you are using.

    It's a mobile issue, happening on my iphone. Just "standard" safari.

    Just curious again. What happens when you click on a pic that you can't see all of?

    By all means, @Bitterbill :slight_smile:. Please and thank you.

    It tries to load imgur, but will not load the page.

    I'm being a bit pedantic, but...recall when you click an Imgur image, that what is supposed to happen is it is supposed to take you to imgur and view that picture on their website. When one of these images is too large for me to see, if I click that image, it takes me to imgur, but it will not load. It's effectively just a blank webpage that has the "imgur banner" at the top (the stripe), but it does not say anything, no photo, etc.

    I chose a few different options. I just use the full html link and paste it in to my post instead of using the tool off the top of the post bar here if that makes sense.

    For those not in the know posting off imugr the file needs to be entered as a media file.

    Post #42 is exactly how I've been doing it and works flawlessly. The bigger question is how does one post a video (music) as many have in WBAYDN.

    Just find it on youtube and copy & paste the URL. Quite simple, actually :slight_smile:.
