New Format Flickr question

Post by paullangford » Wed Mar 26, 2014 3:00 pm

Has anyone sussed out the new format Flickr ?,
I can't seem to find the old 'Grab the HTML/BBCode' option, needed for displaying photo's on this website
It has an Embed code and an HTML code, but not the BBCode, neither of which seem to work ..........unless I'm having a stupid moment

thanks in advance

Paul

1) Click the square with an arrow in it.
2) Click the pin.
3) Choose the size of image you want.
4) Copy the code displayed.

Once you have put the cursor arrow over the code bar, right click the mouse and select copy.
Open up a thread or reply to one :unsure: ,
Select the URL box and not the IMG and press Ctrl+V like doing it the old way.
Your image should be there now providing you have done all the other things mentioned as before. :thumb:
I had a bit of bother myself and know some folk out there like to see us squirm a bit :'( :D

Does anyone else find it really annoying that as Chris has posted has to be done for every image you want to post for example selecting the size over and over again, the old system kept the size you used as default but no it reverts back to 500x333 for every image, just tried imageshack.com and a piece of cake to use :thumb:
