I use the embed feature on Flickrgetting a huge URL like this <a data-flickr-embed="true"  href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/16791270@N08/36647123163/in/dateposted/" title="DSCN8388"><img src="https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4397/36647123163_cf0b44479b_n.jpg" width="320" height="228" alt="DSCN8388"></a><script async src="//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

then paste this between the  tags and get nothing!

I feel like giving up..

Don't use 'embed', use the 'BBCode' choice, and don't use the image insert function on the board,
all of the necessary html code comes with the pic address, it also gives you a choice of size.

I simply use this "[/!url][url=https://flic.kr/p/VetdbS]Image2 by gondor44, on Flickr" which is the BBCode. No need to do anything with it, just copy and paste to where you want it to go, although I edit down to just "[img]https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4282/34939332174_f355f74e7a_z.jpg[/!img]" Not had any problems other than editing out too much or too little. Hope this helps Ignore the ! in [/!url] as its there to stop the image showing

Yup. Use the "BBCode" option, just copy the link the system provides you in the popup window (you can also chose different sizes for the displayed picture), and paste it here. That's all.


The BBcode includes the embedded img reference so you can cut that from the code and past that for a clean image without showing the additional references if required.

Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model
