I have been having trouble linking photo from Flickr to the forum. It used to work fine, but now it doesn't seem to work. Anyone have any ideas why?:shrug:

Flickr seems to be making some changes to it's site, this may be what's causing your grief:)

Good thing it's not just me.

okay so I found that if I clicked on the photo so it showed 'all sizes' and then right clicked on it and selected 'photo location' I can link it here. However, this is a big PITA and I hope that flickr sorts it out soon. :mad:

OK I found a way of doing it as well but it is a pain.

it's a total pain. This was posted on Flickr:

Where is the HTML code and photo file link?

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 "Share this." To get to it just go to the main photo page, click "Share this", and then "Get the HTML."

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.

The direct link to a photo file is no longer shown on the page. Per the Flickr Community Guidelines "pages on other websites that display content hosted on flickr.com must provide a link from each photo or video back to its page on Flickr." Linking directly to the photo file doesn't do this.

We understand that many people were using that link on message boards to show their images and we are working on a solution that will allow you to post using BBCode (standard message board code) that links back.
