You can already preview an image prior to posting. What people fail to realize is that it is currently not possible to only add an image to a post. For example, let's take a look at this image: http://i.imgur.com/wYOBg.jpg

Now, to add it to this post using the Imgur tag:

If I were to post this image without any text whatsoever, it would give me this error: "The message contents were missing or invalid." To avoid that from happening, simply add a text or a dot to make sure that you are able to preview it prior to adding it to a post.

Furthermore, some users make this simple mistake. Instead of just adding the contents after the /, they add the whole URL to the tag. Let's take into consideration the image above. Here's the direct link:
http://i.imgur.com/wYOBg.jpg
. If I were to add this whole link to the tag, I would get this: , which means that it's incorrect and would show me an error.

However, if I were to add just this part: http://i.imgur.com/
wYOBg.jpg
, I would get the image I posted first:

This is what it would look like: [imgur src=wYOBg.jpg]

All in all, you can already preview an image. You just have to make sure that the post has some text and not just the picture and that you are using the Imgur tag correctly, as shown above. It's the same case for Smileys: you cannot simply add a smiley face to a post without content. It would give you an error as well.

In the thread All resources sent to the bank Quick find code: 74-75-811-66079707 the picture would not open in the preview stage it has nothing to do with words or smilies or mistakes.

I write up my post, add pictures, sometimes I add pictures in between words, sometimes it's right at the end, it doesn't matter when I put the picture in, but just before posting if I preview post the picture will no open <- this is what the thread is about and this is constant, not a one of.

Sometimes images work in the preview, sometimes they don't. If it's not working, try hitting the preview button again...

Next time I'm trying to preview and it doesn't work, I'll have a look at the HTML source to see what's going on.

Just did one in Rants this very moment and it previewed okay for me.


Just tried this myself, and can confirm it worked for me as well!

Must be like Nexus has suggested, in that it's just a bit wonky sometimes. I'll make a note of it to pass on to the team to see if anyone knows anything about why it happens.

It happens often to me, and thank you :)

Then how can certain forumers like thunder jinx post just an image without any text? i too get the error message.
