I used the tag:

[**IMG]http://www.boardgamegeek.com/image/95773[/IMG**]

Without the **'s, of course (they're only here to make the TAG show up) and what I got was a broken image box (a blank box with a red X in the middle).

The image exists, so why doesn't it appear in my Geeklist comment? Here's it is with the properly generated tag:



Nothing, right? Why? Maybe it's too big to be resized to be small??

Who IS this masked man? And WHY has he never been photographed together with 6 year old millionaire playboy Calvin?

You're linking to the page to display the image, not the image itself.

The link should be
[**IMG]http://files.boardgamegeek.com/bggimages/pic95773.jpg[/**IMG]

I would suggest, if you are inserting a BGG image, to use the BGGIMG button in the formatting section and enter the image ID# in the popup window. Much simpler than finding the exact URL for an image here on the site. Save the [**IMG] tags for linking to images on other sites.

Thank you! I see part of my problem is that, for Geeklist comments at least, the BGGIMG button insertion doesn't show up in the "preview" view, so I assumed it was broken. All you get with "preview" is [**ImageID=1234**] and not the image itself. But once the comment is submitted/posted, the image shows up.
