    I can't figure it out, and I searched like a bandit looking for drugs - I can't figure it out!

    I can tell you that this doesn't work:

    EDIT:

    Actually it helped me. Go figure...

    You surround it in media blocks.

    When You go to copy it gives you I think 5 options, which is best for TGP?

    When you call up the photo, this appears (using a screen print to show you the options):
    [​IMG]

    Then you block the fifth down (BBCode) and press Ctrl and 'C' together, or simply click on 'Copy' alongside that option.

    Then in your posting pane, you press Ctrl and 'V' (as I have done) and you get the above.

    Hope this clarifies things for you.

    Thanks! With Imgur for singular images I've just used the Direct Link option, and that works OK. The BBCode suggestion for albums is much appreciated.
