Can't put images in threads / comments

How do I fix this? I use the 'image' icon which lets me put in the URL for the image I want to show but once I try to preview it, nothings shows up.

The ability to post images and links is disabled by default and needs to be manually enabled on an account-by-account basis. It looks like someone already enabled it for you, so try again and see if it works.

Just checked and figured out your problem. You copied the URL for the page the image was on, not the Image URL itself.

To get the Image URL, right click the image and hit "Copy Image Address" (or "Copy Image URL" or something similar, depending on your browser). That's the URL you will need.
