    I just tried what seemed to be every option to link an image I have stored on Flickr to my new CX7 thread. Nothing worked. What am I missing please?

    Should be able to embed them. I'll check into this.

    I think embed was the closest to working but it linked to my entire photo stream so you could scroll through all my public photos.

    So I had a go at this and here is the result.

    http://mazdaspeeds.org/index.php?threads/ozy-built-cx7.3844/

    It still opens my whole public photo stream to view in the post rather than just the one image.

    I had to remove a whole lot of extra redundant text in the embed string so that it just showed the image between the [MEDIA] tags. The alternative was this.

    <a data-flickr-embed="true" href="" title="CX7 Wheels"><img src="https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5713/32200660905_f900a97229_c.jpg" width="800" height="600" alt="CX7 Wheels"></a><script async src="//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

    Is there another way to just link a single image?

    Thanks, got it.

    For future reference in this thread for all dumbasses like me.

    I had to edit the embed code provided by Flickr and only use the section with the image source and dimensions. I cut and pasted that section into the link image box.
