So, I finally got an account on flickr. I know I can put the link in the post on the forum, but how do you actually have the picture itself show up on the post. When I do insert image, I always get a question mark like the one below.
Okay I just found out how to do this again after flickr updated. First thing you need to do is grab the HTML/BBCode do this when viewing a picture click on the down arrow button to the right of the mail,tweet,and facebook buttons. Then you should see the code, grab the part of the HTML/BBCode that looks like this “http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5060/5523782993_e9cb71d67f.jpg” then use the insert image and paste it in there. This of course is my image so yours will look a bit different but it should start with the “http://farm6.static.flickr.com” and end in “jpg” or “png” though there are more kinds of image files those are the two most common.
Hope this helps.
When i try to do that there is no part of the link ending in jpg or png
Okay this should clear things up…
I pasted this into the insert image. http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5060/5523782993_e9cb71d67f.jpg no quotation marks.
The result of what I showed you. And and I found out flickr makes you copy all of it, so just paste it then delete the other parts.
It doesn’t give me the option of grabbing the HTML/BBCode. It only lets me grab the link.
Hmmm I don’t know what to say at first I thought it might be because I own that picture that I could get the code but I test and could get other peoples picture codes… Can you link me to the picture you’re trying to put up?
Well, I just the picture I tried to post for this thread was a picture of a gnarwhal that I traded a week ago, but i wanted to know for future reference. I actually think it might be because I’m not logged in or something. I’m not sure.
Yeah that’s it.
