Help! I followed the instructions but I appear not to have done somehting right in posting from Flickr. I tried to remove my post but cannae. Sorry can someone tell me what I am doing wrong and how to correct it. Having said that the photos this month are all first class so mine will not be missed if I can't get on( but I like it!).

Go to you picture, click on the box with an arrow at the lower right of the photograph. Click on Grab the HTLM/BBCode, select BBCode, select medium 800 for size. Then cut and paste the contents of the box into you post.

What you've posted in the photo competition thread is the html - where everything is surrounded by pointy brackets < >

There should be something in that box in flickr that you can choose to change it to BBcode, where everything is surrounded by square brackets [ ] - that's the one you need.

I could translate it tonight, but don't have time now :)

Like nigheandonn has said you are posting HTML code. Click the button that says BBCode and paste that in instead. You can see it in the screen capture below near the bottom.

Cheers guys Now sorted! I didn't notice the option of ticking separate button for BB code. I am only just getting to grips with Flickr. The screen shot really helped .

Hi Guys and Girls!!

Im back.

Right, entries are still open until 1030pm TOMORROW (16th September).

A few little issues though...

johnkaysleftleg, pgrizz and jmarkb - I can't see your photos, only text of the link. Anyone else having this issue?

Also, as already pointed out, Bonzo's photo is ineligible.

Bod, hope you aren't always that premature... :roll: :lol:
