Why are Flickr images not showing up?

    So whenever I try to post an image I upload to my Flickr account, for some reason the image doesn't show up, and instead, it says: [​IMG]IMG

    Does anyone have any troubleshooting tips for this? I keep trying different ways to copy the image link, but to no avail. :smirk:

    can you post the url without the img brackets?

    Yes, I can, but I just can't embed the image in the post, which is what I'm wanting to do.

    If there's no solution, then I'll just post the image link. That'll be fine.

    well the thing is i've never used flickr but if i actually see the url i might be able to figure out the problem

    if that is the exact link you are trying to use, then thats not an image link, so it wont work. an image link has to end with .png, .jpg, .gif, ect

    Sorry, I thought you meant the link to the picture. When I hit the image button on here I pasted the "embed link".

    does the embed link that flikr is giving you have the img tags already there? because if so thats probably why its messing up, because all the image button does on the forum is put the img tags around the url

    ok. i finally figured out how to look at the embed code. here's your problem. thats a disgustingly badly formatted embed code that uses a feature that doesnt work on these forums (putting a link on the image)

    anyway. I copy and pasted it and then highlighted the ONLY part of the embed code that you need. everything else is pointless

    [​IMG]
    if you dont want to have to delete the extra code every time, I would use a different image host. flickr seems needlessly complicated and it also looks more like a photography website and shouldnt be used as an image host anyway

    Thanks so much for the help, and yeah, I'm probably going to get another image host site. Any suggestions for which ones I should switch over to?

    Pretty much any site EXCEPT Photobucket would work. Photobucket no longer lets you use photos in third-party sites with paying.

    Though I personally recommend Postimage. That's the one I use, and I like it a lot.

    Yeah I heard about that; it's too bad because I heard that was a good one. What do you use @muppetgem?

    Thanks. I'll look into that. :)

    No prob. I like it because it uploads your pictures in high quality (no compression artifacts) and even lets you copy the link to the photo to use on other sites.

    I recommend Imgur since it’s what I use.
