    Does anyone know how to post embedded thumbnails from Flickr? Their rules state that a hosted image must link back to their website and I cannot figure out the right code. If I cut and paste their image link code (option 2) only the text shows up in previews.

    Flickr might cancel my account if I don't start linking hosted images as embedded click-able thumbnails. If a solution is found the rewarded will be a couple bird pictures tomorrow.

    When you copy-paste the image path just make sure you remove the "?v=0" or whatever stuff at the end after .jpg.
    Example:
    [​IMG]
    Code:
    (IMG)http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3330/3267114117_acf0a32149.jpg?v=0(/IMG)
    Won't work (Edit: Apparently it now works?? The forums used to change it to an URL but now it lets it keep the IMG tag...) but if I remove the ?v=0 at the end, hey presto:
    [​IMG]
    Code:
    (IMG)http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3330/3267114117_acf0a32149.jpg(/IMG)
    And no flickr probably won't cancel your account. If you want to be a good lad then add a link to your flickr in your signature or make sure you link to the image on your flickr page along with the image like so:
    [​IMG]
    Other sizes (or some other text you'd like)
    Code:
    (IMG)http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3330/3267114117_acf0a32149.jpg(/IMG)
    (URL="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3330/3267114117_acf0a32149.jpg?v=0")Other sizes (or some other text you'd like)(/URL)
    Sorry I had to replace brackets with parenthesis in the code asthe forum CODE tag doesn't ignore bracketed tags... d'oh!!!11

    Thank you for the help. Tomorrow I will post the pictures as promised but they need to be fine-tuned a little in the morning.

    I use the URL Link code to the page where the large size resides , but then where you normally put your "Link to other size text" put the image code round the address for the small or medium jpg. I don't think I've explained that very well so example below, you end up with medium size pic that clicks through to the required page in Flickr.
    ie
    PHP:
    [URL="http://www.flickr.com/photos/whisperwolf/3274660561/sizes/l/"][IMG]http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3493/3274660561_7e27c5d4f5.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

    still a great shot that one Whisperwolf. Don't think I got to comment in the original thread. Really good colors and sharpness.
