Hi,

 

It is 11pm and I am a bit tired, so I may be making a simple mistake...

 

I have just started to upload some pics to Yahoo Flickr, for the first ever time.

 

When I try to paste the codes into the AU page, it states something like "that picture extension is not allowed on this site"

 

Do any of you guys use flickr, and is it possible to show a pic from that in a post?

 

Cheers,

 

Ed.

It is, yes.

At the bottom right, click on the "share picture" icon:
Attached File  Screen Shot 2016-06-11 at 6.59.24 PM.png   5.16KB   9 downloads

Then copy the "BBCode".

It'll look like this:

When you paste it here, it looks like this:

Thanks for the input, I was getting the same results, but assumed something was wrong because of the "extra text" showing under the photos, such as "image xxx" by xxxx on flikr.

 

I was looking for a "picture only" option if posssible, but the text underneath is not too intrusive.

 

Thanks again,

 

Ed.

You can do that, just delete everything after the

in the code you copy in. That's the end of the picture, and what follows makes the caption.

Happy to help!

If you don't want the picture to be link back to Flickr, you can even extract just the url for the picture and slap some IMG tags around it. The URL for the picture will start with https and end with .jpg, so
https://c5.staticflickr.com/4/3843/14669336300_c559a546e5_b.jpg
in my example above. Put a (IMG) before and a (/IMG) (replace the parenthesis with square brackets, if I type it that way the forum tries to use them) after it and Bob's your uncle.

Technically, the Flickr terms of service require using the link back to Flickr, although I've never heard of Flickr actually enforcing this.
