persuming you already have your image heres a step by step guide on how to get your image from your computer to the runescape forums, you will need to go offsite in a new tab during the process

first go to imgur.com



then go to the top and click new post then upload image



you will then get an upload box like this



click browse and locate your pic



once its uploaded right click the image and select open image in new tab

Note: if your browsing in Firefox the right click option will be "View Image"



then take the end of your link off your chosen pic



now is the time to come to the runescape forums click on the imgur button circled here and paste in your url, this should look similar to this [imgur src=94as1CI.jpg]



jobs a good one click post and your pic will appear on the forums under a spoiler box, please note no text and it wont post so you will need to write something as i have written "this is how"



this is the final result

when uploading an image please make sure its in line with the code of conduct and the rules of imgur

Code of Conduct

Images must not include or display:
Cheating, gambling, or circumventing other Jagex rules.
Excessive Gore or mutilation
"Hate Speech" - Demeaning race, gender, age, religious or sexual orientation, etc.
Threats, harassment or language that is generally considered rude - including swearing
Content that encourages violence or crime
Illegal activities, such as drug use.

Once you get the hang of uploading images there's a sneaky little shortcut you can use, this has been tried and tested with jpg and gif formats

Take the code from the picture itself directly after uploading and put it in the [imgur src=] and type .png after

this code right here, it saves a step or two :)

It should look like this
[imgur src=YOURLINK.png]

I joined Imgur, put up my screen shot, followed all your directions and still can't get it to work.
:(

If after 'opening in new tab' my pic url is: http://imgur.com/R1s631Y

I've tried putting just the imgur.com/R1s631Y in or just the R1s631Y - neither way works.

Thanks you though great guide.


the url should end with either .jpg or .png depending on the file type of your image, if you look back at my example it ends in .jpg, are you opening the image in a new tab or copying the url

Not something I think we're going to sticky, maybe the process of uploading an image needs work and we can look at that in the future.

Considering uploading images to our CDN isn't a feasible idea - what are your thoughts on that?
the process of uploading images as it stands now requires going offsite to bring images back to the main website using imgur as a host, although its not feasable to add images via your network could it be looked into whereby you can upload your images to an imgur host off the main website and it gives you back the link exactly as it does now and still uploading to imgur but using an app style feature or client off the main website rather then physically going to the imgur website

close 311, but you need to open the image in a new tab so your link looks like this http://i.imgur.com/D9WQYbo.png which is pretty much the same it just shows that its a png, so using that png link which is your link but opening the image seperately you would of put

[imgur src=]http://imgur.com/D9WQYbo.png

if you take this bit

[imgur src=]http://imgur.com/
D9WQYbo.png


and place it between the = and ] [imgur src=[cyan]here[/cyan]]

it should look like this [imgur src=D9WQYbo.png]

So, great guide, but it appears to take a couple extra steps :P

After you upload your image to imgur, you don't actually have to "open in new tab" or "view image"

Take the code from the picture itself directly after uploading and put it in the [imgur src=] and type .png after

this code right here, it saves a step or two :)

I wasn't aware of that when I wrote this guide I tried it with a gif and jpg and both work fine, I will look at incorporating this info into the guide, but opening in a new tab and copying that link is the 1 extra step to typing png

Let me see what I can do I want to keep it as simple as possible



EDIT: I added your post to the bottom of post 2 thank you for your help

Can this please be stickied?

Or can you have something dedicated to this subject?

We're not all computer geniuses.

Edited insult. =p

And don't tell me simply. I am simple. The internet is not. :@
i made it as simple and easy to follow as possible with nice step by step visual pictures to go from

on the note of it being stickied theres a few people that have made the same request a jmod did respond saying that it wont be, so its just a case of keeping it bumped so everyone can find it

you didnt do anything wrong, just the forums doesnt recognise an image as text, and when you try to post a blank message you will get the exact same error, so an image alone will still show up blank on the forums

if you write "merry christmas" then it will show up, or any word to just so theres text as well in your post. But you did it spot on :)



EDIT: i clarified this in the guide since its not mentioned

Hey
Werewolf
and
Whatusaytome


May I use your posts or better the content of your posts for my guide.


Cheers
Liebster


What guide are you trying to write, if it's essentially the same guide then it's kinda pointless as people can just come here but if it's on another subject then I don't see any reason why not

I will say yes or no when I know what you want it for :P
