    Btw, I see that you used the website I mentioned, i.e. imgbox, whose pros and cons I'm by now familiar with.
    And one of its (very minor, in fairness) cons is that the links it generates automatically are a bit weird, because they include the "URL" tag, whose only purpose is to make the image a clickbait.

    In practice, for the above image you used the following sentence:

    [img]httpsː//images2.imgbox.com/c7/6c/udMSZWJ6_o.jpg[/img]

    Which is 100% correct, and shows the following image as a result.


    Otoh, if you would have copied the automatic link generated by the imgbox website, the sentence would have been as follows:

    [urI=http://imgbox.com/udMSZWJ6][img]httpsː//images2.imgbox.com/c7/6c/udMSZWJ6_o.jpg[/img][/urI]

    Note that the central part included in the "IMG" tags is exactly the same as above, and is the one that actually does the job.
    The rest (which I grayed out) is what makes the image itself an hyperlink: the result looks the same, but if you click on the previous image nothing happens, while the one below redirects you to imgbox website.


    ...with apologies if this is just a complicated way to confirm that you already did the perfectly right thing, but just in case you should wonder why imgbox automatically suggests something different!

    It was trial and error but I also figured that in the Links only box i had to click full size then copy the link and add the IMG etc.. then use the advanced box to preview if needed. But seems to work
