Post Image Posting Issues

Tried slapping up a picture of me in the pictures thread and some reason it doesn't recognize flickr codes or something.

mmh? if it has one of the usual extentions like jpg, gif or so, you just have to frame the address with and it should work.

I'll try monkeying with it a bit more. Any harm if I test in this thread?

Be my guest. BTW, I meant "frame the address with [img]....[/img]". The codes don't appear if there's nothing inbetween.

mmm... it's not working, is it? Try and upload the image to a site for uploading pics, like TinyPic. This way you can select the pic from your PC. It should work.

From Flickr's help pages
"The HTML code to embed a photo in a web page that you used to find on the All Sizes page is now only in the Share menu on the photo, to the left of the More menu. We now also include BBCode! (standard message board code)

There are a few cases where the code may not be available: 1) If the photo is restricted. 2) If that person has turned off "Share this" or access to original files."

Example here - http://creators.ning.com/forum/topics/how-can-i-post-the-link-as-an-image-on-a-discussion-forum-from-1, but be sure to click the "BBCode" button, not to use the HTML as in the picture.

Flickr isn't really very good for this sort of thing, tbh, they prefer you to post to integrated sites like Facebook or Tumblr. Photobucket's much better for general availability.

Anyway, you should end up with something like (outer square brackets removed so you can see the link code) -
IMG]http://i816.photobucket.com/albums/zz87/endemoniada_88/Endo_Bikes/130320-1024.jpg[/IMG

The bit that's missing from your standard Flickr link is the last part (the actual filename of the photo, which should end in .jpg - or possibly one of .png/.gif/.bmp), what you're currently posting is -
IMG]http://www.flickr.com/photos/tittyfook/9035449545/[/IMG
which is a link to your Flickr photostream folder, not a specific picture within it.
