Can anyone advise on this please? I've tried using Photobucket and Flickr and whilst posting, click on the image link, and have added the Flickr image URL between the Img..img and I just get a box with a cross in it.


This is what you need to do in flickr.
Go to your photostream.
Click on the photo you want to link to.
On the next page you should see 4 icons at the bottom is for sharing.
Choose it.
Then choose BBCode and copy the link

Paste that link into your post here.

The image will then appear.

However, Flickr makes the link clickable etc, so you can adjust what you have pasted in and only use the IMG take piece and not worry about the URL tags.

On a sidenote: old pictures can (painstakingly 1 by 1) be fixed by inserting "~original" after the JPG bit of your photobucket picture link...
