    On Flickr, when you have the photo you want to post open click the share button, choose BBcode in the box that opens and copy the url and paste directly into your post. You can edit the url to remove your Flickr name and the photo name.

    That's what I did in the end recently. But had to do it on "desktop" view using phone. Share option not there for me on mobile view.

    I've never used Flickr on the phone before but I just gave it a go and the same for me. Strange.

    Thanks for the help.

    One problem I still have will be evident on the TR I just posted as I had to leave in my Flickr name and photo name.

    If I edit the Flickr URL to remove my name, the rest of the text below then turns into a live link. I tried different ways of removing the URL, doing it first then carrying on writing, or pasting the link between existing text and then editing it but still kept getting the same problem.

    You should get a BB code something like this (but with extra text at the start and in the middle): [​IMG]"2335965_604716c0a3_k./flic.kr/p/27H8PLz]DSC01708[/url] by//www.flickr.com/photos/8630990@N02/]wilb, on Flickr
    If you edit out the green and blue text it will remove your name but leave the photo name. If you edit out the purple text, it will remove the photo name. Don't edit out the "[/url]" in between or it will add a hyperlink.

    Suddenly I can no longer post a picture, 'the upload a file' has disappeared (tho its visible on this thread). I use an ipad so 'insert URL is not an option).

    You seem to be a paying member again (you weren't showing as such earlier).
