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

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. ;-)

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

[-] [email protected] 2 points 6 months ago

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. :-(

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. :-/

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!!

A place for enthusiasts of sticks of all shapes and sizes. We all love a good stick! Is it a walking stick? Light Saber? Gun? Looks brown and sticky? You decide!

Feel free to post sticks to rate, sticks that look like things, memes about sticks, long winded rants about the superiority of birch sticks over oak, anything stick related! Natural sticks are preferred, but modification and ornamentation is also fine.
