They changed things again, at least on my account.  Where I used to have choices between a paper clip, </>, and a pin icon (step 2 as described by Zubbuz above), I now have choices between "Link", "HTML", "BBCode".  I like this better because I don't have to remember what the icons mean!

p.s. Suka, use the BBCode.   :)
Yep. I noticed that as well bringing back BBCode - I'm assuming they got too many complaints...

What annoys me, and they have yet to change, is that on my laptop I must first scroll down before selecting the "arrow out of a box" icon or else the choice for original size goes off the bottom of my screen and I can't select it.  Yeah, they got a comment from me on that, but still no change.

I wish that had a way to default the sharing settings that I want to use the majority of the time.  Hate having to needlessly click through the settings each time I want to share the BB code using the original size.

Amen, brother!  It would be nice to be able to right click on the photo in the photostream view and select copy BB Code from there.

That would be like shangri-la!

Thanks Ocho, next time will try to remember this.  I did not have any problem about a month ago posting photos from Flickr to this site.  How things change on a daily basis, sometimes I can't keep up.

Well, Flickr must have changed something AGAIN. (as of 5/30/14)
I was using their "share button and just copying/pasting the size I wanted into our boards. It had been working well.
The last 2 times I tried this, it would not work.  Starting to p*ss me off just a little.  >:(
I went back to my old method that I posted on here which was longer...but it worked.

Anyone else having issues very recently?
Or am I the only lucky SOB in here?
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

Mine works well - click on share, then BBCode, select size, copy link and it works....

You must be one lucky SOB!

I just double checked.  I'm not a lucky SOB: I'm a stooopid one.  I did NOT select BBCode.  It had been there by default before but it somehow got changed back to HTML.  I just switched it to BBCode and it is-in fact-working again.
Like I said...I'm slow but sincere.  ::)

Haha - glad it's working for you...

I think it generally defaults to what you last used, EXCEPT when they update the website, then it defaults back to HTML until you use it and change it again... Theoretically, it should stay on BBCode until they update again...

At least, that's what I have found :)

Thanks Zman, I'll keep a closer eye out on that next time.
