    I'm using Firefox and images just show as [​IMG]
    Code:
    [IMG]
    I've tried clearing cookies/cache and making sure Firefox or add-ons aren't blocking any content, but it's still not showing up.

    Actually, on further investigation, it seems to be that only some images aren't showing up. Ones hosted on imgur seem to be ok, I think?

    It could be the wi-fi network you're using. When I'm at work, some images don't show up, because their hosting site is blocked.

    Maybe, but I'm on a home WiFi so I don't think there should be anything blocked.

    I'm seeing this quite a bit, too, and I'm on Chrome. I don't think it's a Wi-Fi problem.

    Ok, I think I figured out some of it. Firefox has a Facebook Container that apparently was preventing images linked to through Facebook from showing up. I'm not sure if all the ones I couldn't see were because of that, but I guess I'll see if that fixed all of it.

    Chances are some places don't allow you to link. Also, if it's an incomplete image link (doesn't end in .jpg or .png, etc) then it won't work either. Facebook is notorious for not allowing image hosting.

    Right, but some people exclaim about the photos and I just see nothing ...

    I can't upload a photo, using my mobile. I uploaded it to imgur and others.. But nothing shows up here.

    I don't believe we have local storage for images. You would need to remotely host it.

    (me pointing finger back at hosting provider and not at us)

    With Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other sites restricting direct image sharing, if you have an image you want hosted and don't pay for fotki, Photobucket, etc. you're welcome to contact me and I can get it hosted on my website and get you a link.

    I just use Sharex, you can download it from ninite

    ctrl + print screen to capture an image of custom size after you install it
