Could you put the link to the meme in the link section of the post? That way it should show up directly.

Meme

Will do! I seem to have trouble directly posting images, as you can see.

Umm, apparently no, alas I cannot. Shall I delete it? Start over? Could you post it correctly? I don't mean to be a stickler. ;-)

JohnDClay,

That’s fine, we can leave it. The image should be easy enough to get to in the comments.

Actually I'd rather not. I'm on kbin.social, and a lot of the time when I try to post something with an inline image, it just doesn't work. :-(

JohnDClay,

You might need a () in between the ! and the [ in your post

This https://lemmy.ca/pictrs/image/8053b6ac-d8b2-45d6-aeaa-360a1ceec17c.jpeg - yielded a link that can be clicked to bring up the image. Where do I learn these points of syntax? I tried several possible combinations, including the one you suggested first, before I got this modicum of improvement. :-/

JohnDClay,

I don’t know where I learned it from, and I don’t know if kbin is different. Boost links to images by default if you link them, so that’s one way to find out. Normal links are in the format [alt text] (link text) with no space, images just have an exclamation point in front of the [. But again I have no experience with kbin.

I'm hoping if I just do it wrong loudly and often enough someone (from reddit most likely) will angrily and thoroughly correct me. Thus learning will happen. ;-) Thanks for your input!!
