Flickr - not working as it should?

Is there an issue with the above mentioned site on here?

By clicking on "Grab the HTML/BBCode" and pasting it into a new post it generates this -

by Paul J Smith Photography, on Flickr

Not what I was after

When I preview the new post, it looks at it should, a single image with the text along the bottom.

I'm not looking for an alternative host site, most others suffer from compression and loss of quality.

Same happens for me mate. It didn't used to with Flickr on here too so not sure why it changed. If you remove some of the BB Code you can make it work but I don't think it links to your photostream and it's a hassle to start fiddling about manually with every image you want to upload.

Hopefully we can get it fixed!

abit of a pain but if you right click and select "view in [whatever size]", then right click the photo and "Copy Image URL" before posting it using the use the Insect Image icon as normal then it will work.

Superb, cheers mate.

Doesn't answer why it works in preview and not when it's posted as a new thread though?

it seem like if you do "Grab the link" will just do the same thing as i say in my previous post.

I tried that in Preview (with the BB code grab from your link) but i get the same as you in the OP.
