    I've been trying to upload pics and gifs to back up my evidence during debate but it alway say i don't have permission to do so. Ive heard people saying imgur so i install it and follow the process. After uploading the said pic and link it says"You do not have permission to view this page or perform this action.
    I don't really know how to use imgur as am new there. Is there something am not doing right?

    You cannot use 'Upload a file' option in the reply window unless you do so in conversations.
    You will have to upload an image to imgur (or even create an account), and once it is uploaded to imgur, click on the image and look for the fifth option on the right side of the image 'BBCode (message boards & forums)'. Copy that link and paste it in the reply window on NF. You should be all set.

    No problem, let me know if you run into more issues and if it won't work. It should though. Try testing and uploading an image in this thread

    Once you upload to imgur you'll have a link like such:
    Code:
    https://i.imgur.com/x3IDXUp.png
    Place it between tags like this:

    Code:
    [IMG*]https://i.imgur.com/x3IDXUp.png[/IMG]
    Without the *

    End result:

    Right on the image from the drop menu, you will see:
    • Delete image
    • Get share links
    Go to the share links and copy the BB code right from there and paste it on NF

    You can type it or click the image button and paste your link into it.

    Right-click an image, select Copy Image, then paste it into the text editor if you're using the Rich editor (the default setting). Copy-pasting a link to an imgur upload (etc.) also works so long as it's supported by the media embedder. The link should be converted to a media embed once you hit the Post Reply button.



    The Upload a File feature only works in (and only if the filesize is less than 1MB, I think).

    Nataly i tried every thing but still couldn't do it. Sorry for bothering you. My laptop is spoiled so am using mobile. Is this the reason why am having difficulties. I will be glad if you will use the app version on mobile to help me and if you could please take your time and break it down for me.

    I actually downloaded imgur app on my phone last night to test it out. And I was surprised there was no option for any codes on mobile. All I got was the drop menu you showed and when I click on 'Copy link' it just saves it to clipboard. And if I paste that code with , it gives me error and the image is not showing :hm

    Yh so it wasn't my fault then. The only option is to use it on PC/laptop right.

    It works like a charm once you do it on the laptop, so it seems to be your only option, sorry, I tried my best

    Paste it in between [code*] tags so I can see what the link looks like from app.

    Also can try pasting the link from app solo, without clicking on image since it should automatically convert into media if it's an album url which most of them are by default.

    But pasting just the link alone does show the image, so I guess that can work

    Okay well there you go.

    Problem 1: Imgur app doesn't auto convert to https like the site does.
    Change http to https.

    Problem 2: The link is the album link and not the image link. So putting it in between image tags will give you nothing. Putting it as a solo link or using the media tag would solve that problem.

    Alternatively you can just manually edit the link since all of them should(?) work in the same method. Example yours being.
    Code:
    http://imgur.com/ykppxZi
    Change it to https, i.imgur and add .png (or .jpg/.gif/whatever your image is)
    Code:
    https://i.imgur.com/ykppxZi.png
    End result:



    Added effort a plenty by using phone, easiest would be simply pasting the copied url into your post and leaving it at that.

    Thank you for resolving the issue! Very helpful.

    If @PrimeRichard doesn't want to mess around with codes, simply copy and paste the link and you should be all set.
