Posting photos using a link from Flickr

Postby Big Al » Tue Oct 30, 2012 11:24 pm

MMO has a Group on Flickr: MorrisMinorOwners.co.uk on Flickr

Posting a photo from your Flickr account is easy.

Just remember if you do and then change the photo in your Flickr account the photo may be lost on from the forum.

Image

A) click on the 'Share' button.

B) click on the 'Grab the HTML/BBCode

C) click to size the image to 640 x 580 (the best size for the forum)

D) click on BBCode

Then all you need to do is copy and paste the code in the box onto the your post. Check it has worked by clicking on 'Preview' before posting.

Below is an example of how your photo will look, notice it will display a link and title on your Flickr account and also your Flickr name. If you don't what these details to be shown then use the method under this post: about1966.html

MMO has now got it's own Flickr Group.

Although we like you to download your images directly onto the forum (see how to: Posting Photos) we know some still like to link via their on-line photo accounts.

The Flickr MMO Group will allow us to advertise our forum to those looking for Morris Minor images through search engines.

If you already have a Flickr account please join the group and start linking/adding your Morris Minor photos. You don't have to be a Flickr member to see the Group photos but you will need a basic (free) account if you wish to join or add photos.

The more photos we add to the Group the more chance of spreading the word about the forum. So please sign up to the group and start posting those photos and don't forget to add a link to the forum!

Here's the link: MorrisMinorOwners.co.uk on Flickr

Not a bad start to our Group on Flickr, would be nice for a few more and lots of photos. There's 5 members and 8 photos at the moment.

It appears the method of adding to the forum will only work on photos already added to a Flickr group. If it is only on your photostream the BBCode will not show up.

Another good reason to add your photos to the MMO Flickr Group if you have problems loading using the other preferred forum method.
