p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Why do links to flickr images not work anymore?


When posting images here on FM I use the bb-code provided by flickr which is a link tag around a image tag, so the image becomes the link.

It used to work fine: you would click on the image and would arrive at my flickr page.

Now it opens the image with a black background and I see no way how to get to my flickr page.

I find that rather annoying.

Did I miss a way to get to the flickr page of my image?

Example:


If i use the same code in another forum and click on it I will arrive here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/birnenbaumgarten/10694925724/

I agree, it's a little annoying, but if you cut and paste the full bbcode snippet from Flickr, it does seem to include a text hyperlink to Flickr at the bottom. Like this:

Seems to be working now, I just clicked on your image and was taken to the correct page.

It looks like the forum's built-in full screen image viewer is over-riding any URL that's enclosing the image.

Just testing with this

Seems like clicking on any image - linked or uploaded to FM - now opens them in a view-on-black mode with a possibility to use the arrow-keys to shift through all images of that page.

Yes, tested above and it's not just Flickr.

I notice it's also attributing copyright to the user name of the poster of each image, which could be inaccurate.

Not worked out what it does when you quote someone else's post with an image in it - let's try that next

A quoted image

Edit 1: OK, it's smart enough not to display a quoted image...


an unquoted image belonging to someone else

Edit 2: now, when you click on it, the forum tells the world that alwang's photo is my copyright, which it certainly isn't

It seems to be a forum thing as I went back to one of your old posts (3 weeks ago) and got taken to the same FM page. I'm pretty sure that once would have taken me to Flickr.

Did anyone report this to Fred? (I don't have a Flickr account).
Usually these kind of posts go in the Forum and Misc forum.

No news about linking flickr images? No fix?
