Linking pics to STW from Flickr, problems??
OK then… what am I doing wrong? I used to just right click on the pic, then copy the image location and paste it into the IMG thingo. Now, when I right click on the image, I don't get the option to save image location. So instead, I use the 'Share this' option on Flickr and copy the URL from there, but it doesn't show up in the post?

It could be that Flickr have changed the Direct Linking options ?
By rights you are supposed to post the picture linking back to the flickr site (ie if you hover your mouse over the picture and click it will take you to flickr… like on my pic above). Try that.
Install Drac's script. It is fookin brilliant. Works a treat for me.Posted 8 years ago

Thats the Grab the html link.
I get this bit:
Then I use the IMG button above with it:

Joined Flickr just recently for posting up photos here, & so far no success beyond the red 'X'; trying the above advice…
" alt="" title="" class="bbcode-image" />
Nope, once again..
Edit; ah success, wonder what I did different??? How do you get it to link back then? Oh I'm so thick 😳
Trying to link-back again..

Thanks, Mr. Pants for the "all sizes" pointer…mrmichaelwrightMember
what you entered is "http://www.flickr.com/photos/32746168@N08/4055010023/"
this is not the url of the image
you need to use the actual image address, this will show if you go to 'view all sizes' then right click and copy the image url
or use greasemonkey and sam's script as suggestedPosted 8 years agojojoA1Member
Not fully read each reply, but I found this problem recently after many years of happily being able to post by just right clicking, choosing 'properties' and cut and pasting the stuff into img brackets. This stopped working recently and the 'stuff' that I cut and pasted changed to not having jpg at the end.
Random trials led me to clicking on the 'all sizes' choosing medium then 'properties' and it came up with the old format of 'stuff' in the bit you cut and paste. So that's what I do now. The rest is too complicated for an eejit like me, however, when I get home I'll read the instructions in the posts above and work out how to do it properly so I don't get arrested for something….Posted 8 years ago

Easy if you use the script I mentioned above, once you go to allsizes there's a new box for you to copy from paste it in STW and does it all for you no need to click IMG.Posted 8 years ago
