The Grand "Imgur albums/links are broken" thread.

Recommended Posts

Hi.

There 'i' icon on the top left of the editing bar is gone. The [imgur] tags do not work.

Has the option to ember imgur albums been removed?

It's been broken for at least half a year. Probably longer, perhaps even a year.

You can embed Imgur using using the HTML link.  Just drop it in and the forum will recognise it.

Does this include albums?

No albums are definitely broken.  Most members are posting an example image and linking to the albums .

An alternative is to post an example image in the main post, and then put the rest of the images with descriptions in a spoiler beneath. This is what I've been doing lately, and it's quite effective - especially since more often than not, imgur now randomly re-orders the images in an album after a while.

We're still waiting on the forum software update at this point.

RIC, any update on this status?

Still waiting on the forum software update before resuming testing. There were some technical issues with applying the update, hopefully it will be done Soon(tm).

This doesn't work for me:

<blockquote class="imgur-embed-pub" lang="en" data-id="a/M3LAz"><a href="//imgur.com/M3LAz"></a></blockquote><script async src="//s.imgur.com/min/embed.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

on chrome.

Are you trying to link to an image or a post?

I use the code for HTML (website / blogs).

It should look like a html link:
<a href="Your link here"/><a>

I was copying the imgur album embed code from imgur.

Bumping as the issue is still present. :(

The forum update has been put on hold while the missing mod thread recovery is worked on.

I appreciate the transparency and its good to hear the the missing thread issue is taking priority over the forum update as its obviously a much more pertinent issue. :D

Bumping this again since a month ago the missing mod threads were determined unrecoverable.

Now that this long-standing issue is fixed, believe is time to close this thread. Thanks all for discussing.

(what you're doing here? Go show your imgur albums now)
