Nah, you're okay. You just need to do it a little different.

So you used the URL to the Flickr page, not the actual image. When you click the image button and paste that URL in, it will appear broken since it's just the URL to a web page, not an image.

This is the URL you tried to use:
Code:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/44601105@N07/6196906782/

If you take the URL to the actual image, it posts fine.

For example, this URL from that same image:

Code:
http://farm7.staticflickr.com/6014/6196906782_e14a81d4ab_b.jpg

Looks like this when you paste it into the field that comes up when you click the image button.




But of course the easiest way to do it is to use the share button in Flickr and it writes the code for you. Take a look at this tutorial: Posting Photos From Flickr

Thanks Nick! I tried it a bunch of different ways, but not that one.:p

Is anyone else having issues uploading pictures lately? I seem to be stuck on one picture at a time mode.

I had this issue. At some point Safari had asked if I wanted to enable Flash for the site and I said no. Turning it back on fixed it for me.

I need to run an update on the forum software and then the flash uploader will be history and replaced with an HTML5 uploader. I'll try to get to it this week.

Getting server errors when trying to upload pics. FYI...
Android version 10, if it matters.

Good timing!
'Course I'm so stupid I was going to try to upload screenshots in response:rolleyes:

Little window pops up at the top of the page.
"Oops! We ran into some problems.
A server error occurred. Please try again later."
