    How to post photo from Flickr to the Forum?

    I have been trying to link a photo that I have on Flickr to the All Other Formats area with no success. Could a forum member let me know how to do this or even if it is allowed? Any assistance gratefully received.

    Re: posting photo from Flickr

    If you go to your Flickr page where the image is, click on the icon to "Share photo". The page that opens next gives you some options for sharing, and you want to click on BBCode. Within the BBCode is your image's web address, and it is between the [img] and [/img] brackets.
    For the image to appear in the forum you need to copy and paste the image brackets [img]plus everything that follows up to and including the closing bracket[/img] into the body of your post. Don't leave any spaces between the brackets and the image address. That should do it.

    It works well and I now use it.

    But one day when we close our Flickr accounts all our Forum images will be lost.
