1) Width tag doesn't work with IMG.

2) You might need to make two images: one small for the thumbnail, to be used in the IMG tag, one large to by linked by the URL tag.

[fimg={NUMBER1},{NUMBER2}]{URL}[/fimg]

So for your image you need to set both X and Y

2nd test of fimg




ok,this works the way I want it to:

Code: Select all

[url=http://i.imgur.com/niadAGo.png][fimg=300,190]http://i.imgur.com/niadAGo.png[/fimg][/url]
Clicking the thumbnail takes you directly to the full size image.

one more test using imgur thumbnail

I like the way this works:

Code: Select all

[url=https://i.imgur.com/SYHbD0x.jpg][img=https://i.imgur.com/SYHbD0xt.jpg[/img][/url]
The first url is as supplied by imgur.
The second is that same url with a lowercase "t" added to the end of the image name.
Produces a clickable thumb that goes to the full size image and no need to calculate the thumbnail size to maintain aspect ratio.
