I am attempting to use an image I made as the icon for an ability, but the image does not appear in the preview. I would assume this may have something to do with the hosting site for the image being Imgur and not a Wikia, but I would like confirmation and a solution if possible.

The image in question:

Well, thank you for responding, but I was able to find a workaround.

For some reason, images linked from Discord work just fine. You should still look into a fix, just for the sake of professionalism and our convenience.

Hey! Figured it out! You have to use the actual image URL, not the Imgur gallery URL. You can get a BBCode embed link when viewing your images in your gallery on Imgur, too. Just need to be sure you're embedding the exact URL of the image (with the file extension). Hope this helps!

Example:
Code:
