Photobucket is here: http://photobucket.com/
I'm pretty sure you can also use Flickr like this too - just look for the image code (IMG code) and copy and paste it.
This has never once worked for me. I've tried Flickr and Photobucket. No luck.
It should, I use photobucket for that all the time. Make sure you're not
clicking on the CC 'Img' (Insert image) button at all. You just want the IMG code for your photo...copy it and paste it into your post, making sure you have a space either side of it (any text or punctuation next to the IMG code not separated by a space will prevent it working.) When you paste the IMG code you will just see the code, until you click on 'submit' and then the photo will display in your post.
Here's a couple pics to show what I mean (hopefully they're clear, I don't know how to do a screen grab so I had to use my camera).
This is in Photobucket. Note the 'Share this photo'
box to the right of your photo. You need the 'IMG code'
which is the last item on that little list there. To copy the IMG code, just click once on it...the IMG code space will then turn yellow and show 'copied', like you see here:
Go back to Cake Central where you're typing your post/reply and on a new line hold down the control button on your keyboard (Ctrl) and press 'V' which will paste it.
Put the IMG code on it's own line without any text or punctuation up against it. Click 'Submit' to post your reply and the photo should then show up in the thread
Does that make any sense? (I'm not great at explaining stuff!)
