Post Photo posting
I always used to embed photos, and I know it can still be done. However, I tried just about everything the other day and failed miserably. I read a piece by DM explaining the new codes etc, couldn't fathom it out, so in the end, I just gave up.
Any ideas? I use flickr, btw.

I use Flickr as well.

I navigate to the URL on Flickr that has the size of image that I want to embed, then right-click, select "Properties", mark out the full URL ending .jpg, copy, navigate back to the "post a reply" or "compose post" page here and paste in the URL, leading it with "img" in square brackets and ending it with "/img" in square brackets.

There's a more elaborate way that gives you a medium sized image in the thread that you can click on to give a larger image - I tried it for awhile, but it was too fiddly.

If you want, PM me the text and full syntax you want to post and I'll have a look at it.

Test, and if it works, thanks David. Flickr seem to have tweeked things a little since I was last on and the .jpg link seems harder to find...

Anyway, here goes.
