Need help using gist

Solved! Go to Solution.
So I have seen other users put images in their gists. I have tried to do a screenshot in gist through MarkDown and did the MarkDown image code and it won't show on the gist.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi @SHADOWELITE7,

 

In order to tell you what you're doing wrong, we need to see what you're doing in the first place. Would you care to share a link to a Gist that you're trying to get this to work with?

 

Thanks!

I will need to create a new Gist because I lost my pictures for my astronomy study guide

Hi @SHADOWELITE7,

 

Thanks for sharing that link. The URL that you're trying to link the image to is only 2018-05-07 (3).png . Where is this image located? To add images to a Gist using Markdown, the image has to be uploaded somewhere accessible.

 

Thanks!

Wonderful! I'm glad you were able to find a solution!

Just as a quicker, potentially easier alternative (work-around), you can also upload your image to a comment on your Gist itself. Then, you can copy the image link that is generated from that, and use that in the Markdown link.

Cheers!

Re: Need help using gist

Here's an old Gist of mine mentioning the above method (adding images to Gist using comments):

https://gist.github.com/kannankumar/4c613cac6d9db896062a16e1cc57d3e5

 

However, the above method of adding image to comment section doesnt work now.

 

Update: Github Engineering seems to be working on fixing it.
