BBCode embed image links URL instead - 08/05/14 03:51 AM

Hi i am trying to use BBCode to embed an image as my signature but all i get are the image tags with a link to the image between.
I checked the usable code section and i have everything correct, am i doing something wrong or this this a bug or a standard feature?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try this.

[img]any image hosted somewhere online with the full URL[/img]

I just tested it with my profile and it worked.

Hmmm... I duplicated your code in my signature and it worked as you see. Let me investigate. (I will remove this sig/image as soon as you reply.)

OK, thanks for taking the time to help. Should i remove my sig until this is resolved or leave it as is?
