    How do I post flickr images on the forum. I tried generating the web badge in flickr and then pasted it in the image tag, but it didn'y work. I know this is probably an easy thing to do but I'm missing it somehow.

    You need to navigate to the page which gives you the static link to the image and then use the tags. A static link will look like this:

    [url]http://static.flickr.com/92/275667958_d3eb8547ea_o.jpg[/url]

    Then put that in the [img] tags and you're set.

    Make sure you don't put a huge image in though, having one resize the entire page is quite annoying...[/COLOR]

    Usually yeah. Or post a link to the full size one in some form or another. Alternatively you could use the forum's built-in attachments feature so you don't have to rely on another site to host images you want viewed on here.

    if you want it to link, copy the HTML code from flickr, then change it so that it looks like (replace carrots with brackets, delete all extraneous info from the Flickr link):

    <URL="http://blahblah.flickr.com/blah"><img>image URL here</img></URL>

    That makes the image into a hyperlink back to its Flickr page.

    HTML is disabled on this board.

    The alternative is
    Code:
    [url=http://flickr.com/whatever][img]http://imageurl[/ img][/ url]

    Edit: The forum resizing due to the code posted below is what we're trying to avoid here.

    for example:

    Flickr HTML looks like:
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/celluloidpropaganda/288770949/" title="Photo Sharing"><img src="http://static.flickr.com/117/288770949_6689995ae7.jpg" width="330" height="500" alt="Darwin" /></a>

    This becomes (again, change carrots to brackets)
    <url="http://www.flickr.com/photos/celluloidpropaganda/288770949/"><img>http://static.flickr.com/117/288770949_6689995ae7.jpg</img></url>

    and it displays like
    [​IMG]
