HTML Image Option is Messed Up

robogena 8 years ago updated by Alan Schaaf (Founder) 8 years ago 3
I love imgur, and I especially love the new quick-copy button for the "HTML Image" button. However, the html within is screwed up - there's a link tag surrounding the html now, which wasn't present in HTML Image before. Was this a planned change or a mistake? It's annoying to have to edit out the extra tags!

Sorry for the confusion. It's been brought back.

well i do not like it personally but the new codes meets the terms and conditions of the sites which require you to link back to the site if you hotlink an image to an external site. 


Hotlinking to any image is fine, but just keep in mind that this is a free service, so please be nice to our servers. Also, please link back to the image's page on Imgur, which is the same link as the image but without the file extension. If you abuse this privilege, then bad things will happen (see "Stuff not to do").


Now, to offer pure IMG codes to paying customers is an option that the developer could consider. 

Ohhh, I see. I always thought the hover-over text was enough but I'll leave the link-back in there then. Thanks!

Now THAT would be nice!

he has now removed the link code from the BBCODE option based on user feedback!
