For me, it does not work. It just shows one of those little error images with a piece of paper

Como colocar mais de uma imagem com click/link sem da erro?
Quando coloco duas imagens click de lugares diferentes, ambos vão para o mesmo lugar, como a arte de cima estivesse interferindo na de baixo.

can you do this without uploading the image online? Can't you just embed a file or does it have to be uploaded first to a place like imgur?

I seem to have understood the issue, two things :

1. After uploading to img gur, there are 3 dots to the right side of the image, click that and find share links in the menu, copy the BB Code link, other links won't work. Author of the post has not mentioned about BB link.

2. While copy pasting check that the [img] and [/img] are not appearing twice in the final code. Its a common mistake people make after copy pasting the BB Link.

Same here. Img link is broken. Same for the thumbnail... Steam doesn't detect it :steamsad:

how do you avoid links breaking up the images? i've tried stuff like this before and steam will automatically put a text link to the website next to the image, breaking up the pictures
