I would like to be able to simply use ![](https://media.giphy.com/media/i2n9cTrGqIvJwvNBXx/giphy.gif) to embed a GIF - as it will work for 100%, always and with every GIF.
But the software replaces it with the broken Giphy embed BB-Code which results in an empty post (no image/GIF at all).

As long as the simple markdown image import works I don't care about the broken BB-codes. But I think that the easiest would be to remove the broken (as they were always more or less broken) media embed BB-codes.

PS: but the Giphy embed is still broken.^^
Even the GIF search uses the IMG BB-Code.

Code:
BB-Code

Think I’ll get rid of the Giphy BB seems fairly redundant with the new gif search!
