A final word on posting from Flickr or similar services:  they typically provide a significant amount of extra code in their embed coding.  That is, they link to themselves and such.  If you want to include the extra coding that is no problem.  The only information required to make it work is what is between the img tags.  For example:


Code: [Select]
[url=https://flic.kr/p/Hq2WAz][img]https://c6.staticflickr.com/8/7638/27182602165_8a88c870e9.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/Hq2WAz]Untitled[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/97224893@N02/]lverdura28[/url], on Flickr


VS.


Code: [Select]
[img]https://c6.staticflickr.com/8/7638/27182602165_8a88c870e9.jpg[/img]



Yields this:

Now for the final proof of concept.  All these pictars have been chosen from the sample Flickr album.

 Thanks B , though the new format would negate all of this correct?

No.  The new format would still have these same limitations.  What it does fix is the upside over shizzle, and gives the ability to upload sequentially for each post with a progress bar.  Then there is the possibility for inline attachments.........

These features are operational.  On a PC you can drag and drop attachments.  Watch the progress bar.  FYI when the meter says "100%", the file is finished loading to the server.  However, that doesn't mean the connection is complete.  You can tell when the little red "X" icon on the right becomes a "-".   Upload a few pictars.  Provide feedback.  Try it out!  [thumbsup]
