For years now I have not been able to post photos. I can do so on other forums using the normal image tags. Here's an example of an image that works on other forums but not here:

What am I doing wrong?

Looks like using just the regular link widget works best, you can then just display the custom photo title. e.g. "Photo Test" I can't get the image to show either. You may have to resize and upload to the BABC image host to get it to actually display w/o clicking through a link.

Best I can do from the photo gallery is the thumbnail link which seems to work well. It is labeled "Linked Thumbnail:" The first link above is the "HTML code" url from the photo gallery.

Try it without the S on HTTPS.

I think the problem Dave is having is that the image link is for a path to an image file like a .jpg, not a URL link to a page with an image on it.
