Embed Flickr photos?
« on: July 20, 2017, 09:17:08 AM »
Not sure where to put this but it does affect my customs thread. So thanks to photobuckets blackmail I've switched to Flickr but I have only figured out how to post a link to my photostream. Is there a way to embed photos directly to the thread? I'm having trouble finding that option.
As an aside, mods, will we be updating our posting  code to exclude the photobuckets option or include other options? I'm sure something like that is a process that takes time.

You definitely can embed photos from Flickr.

Go to Flickr and click on the image in your Photostream.  You'll see an icon in the bottom right corner of the image window that looks like a curved arrow pointing to the right.  Click on that to open the Share window. 
Click the "BBCode" tab, choose the size that you would like to post from the drop-down menu, and copy the code in the field.
Paste the code here and you're golden. :)

What about a script to automatically embed Instagram pics. A couple other boards I'm on automatically turn them into a picture the same way this board turns image links into images without having to mess with BB Code. It even shows the account the picture comes from and the caption underneath. I found a mod for it.

Does anyone know how to embed flickr pics from a mobile device? There is nothing that says "BBcode" on my device. Thanks in advance!
I am now taking commisions for Custom dolls, ponies, handmade ponywear and doll clothes, and handmade pet hooded coats!

Unfortunately, the BBCode option doesn't exist on either the mobile website or in the Flickr app... but there is a way around this.

Go to your Flickr photostream on your mobile device.  Open up the settings menu (it usually appears as three dots in the upper right-hand corner of the window) and select "Request desktop site".  This will allow you to view the website on your device exactly as it appears on a PC.  You can then use the BBCode method that I described above.

Now, I use an Android device, so depending on what type of device you use it might be a little different.  I believe that on Apple devices you have to tap and hold the Refresh icon and then select "Request desktop site".  So you might have to Google how to do it on your particular device.


There is a Share option in the app, but it doesn't allow you to post BBCode.  It's more useful for sharing the image directly with other social media sites and apps such as Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
