What are you all using for image hosting? I tried using imgbb but the forum doesn't recognize it for some reason.

I'm sorry, I should've been more specific. I am trying to add a signature photo. I did not see anything for attachments there.

Ah yes signatures require external hosting!

Although imgbb should still work all I will say is go careful of the size as signature images can turn out huge!

Try the code again and I will have a look at it once its in your signature and see whats going on :)

I know I am two years late but as a imgbb user I thought I would post that when inserting an image hosted on imgbb you need to use their Direct Link embed code url.

And I'm against external hosting as if something breaks with the links then the images are gone forever just like when photobucket decided to start charging a lot of people stopped using the service and a lot of images where broken

At least with uploading them up to the server they will always stay here :D

I would never stop it mind I would just discourage it

Adding an image in a signature requires external hosting. A loss there is not catastrophic though. Uploading the image as an avatar instead of putting it in the signature may be the better way to go.

Yes I was talking about just general images like you you are showing someone something has helpful then that help then goes!

It's not the end of the world its just my preferred option then no risk of losing it that's all
