    Also, when you inline this, please post one of the smaller versions of the image as the version that shows in the post, like the small / 240pix version or the medium / 500pix. Since you're linking back anyway, any interested person can just click the link to see a larger version, if you posted one.

    There are two parts..

    First off, to post and image you would do:

    HTML:
    [img]http://www.someurl.com/myimage.jpg[/img]
    
    That will just display the image. To get it to link you will need to add a URL tag like so:

    HTML:
    [url="http://www.someurl.com/myflickrpage/"][img]http://www.someurl.com/myimage.jpg[/img][/url]
    
    So the first URL would go to your flickr page and the second one should go to your image. Try it out in a new post and use the preview button a lot. You'll get it!

    I did what you said, and It comes out only a small box with question mark, when clicked upon, it will lead to the flickr page. :eek:

    Why don't you do this... post a link -- just the URL -- for the Flickr page of one of your photos. We'll inline it the way you want it to be and then give you the code that we used, and you can start from there and try it with another photo.

    That's because in between your IMG tags you are linking to a site and not an actual picture.

    Copy the link that is between the IMG tags and paste it into your address bar at the top of your browser. The image will show but with a lot of HTML around it. If you right click on the image and then choose "View Image" that new URL is what needs to go between the IMG tags.

    However I woudl recommend before you do "View Image" that you choose the small or medium size image first. Otherwise the image will cause scrolling to happen on peoples browsers and they don't care for that.
