Labradoodle? No--a terrier?

I agree with Debbie--such a cute doggie.

Thank you, bessircrocker, he is beautiful!!!  Our wonderful German Shorthair Pointer, developed liver failure, and then the Vet's treatment finally failed, as there is no cure, we had to put "Hitch" to sleep.  Terribly, heartwretching,  hard, but I refused to let him suffer. Needless to say, he left a void for both DH and me. Thanks for sharing photos, he is a joy!

Hi Bessie,

Lovely dog!  You may have wondered why all of the text after your photos is included in the "clickable link." (All of the text after the images is pale blue and if you click, will take you to the first photo's page on Flickr.)

What happened is that you dropped the ending url tag, for the first photo, so SG, not finding one in the remainder of your post, simply treated it as if there ending url tag was at the end of the post! :o ::)

So...when you cut off the second two lines of the code on the first picture, you also got rid of the closing url tag in the first line, which looks like this:
Code: [Select]
[/url] 

The format of the first line of each photo should look like this:
Code: [Select]
[url=AAA][img]BBB[/img][/url]
where:
"AAA" = is the destination of the link--where the link will take you when you click on the link
"BBB" = the image's url which SG's software pulls to display the image


The text between the url tags describes the link you see...here, that's the picture (described by the img tags and BBB), which is why the image is "clickable."

So you need to put the closing url tag back where it belongs, at the end of the first line of Flickr-supplied code, which will then look like this:
Code: [Select]
[url=https://flic.kr/p/WAxjs8][img]https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4280/35834136875_e185af5529_n.jpg[/img][/url]
Then your "Before..." text won't be clickable.

Your second photo doesn't include the link back to it's Flickr page, as you've only included the image (but not the linking info).  That is, you only have this portion of the code:
Code: [Select]
[img]BBB[/img]
The first of the three lines of code supplied by Flickr (as viewed in the editing window after you've pasted it) will have this format:
Code: [Select]
[url=AAA][img]BBB[/img][/url]
To add it back separately, add the
Code: [Select]
[/url]at the end of the code for the first picture.

For the second picture, you could copy the Flickr supplied code and delete the second & third lines (just as you did for the first one), OR you could:

1. highlight the entire code string you have now for the second one, then click the 2nd button in the second row to put url tags around your existing code.

2.  then put your cursor behind the letters url in the opening url tag and (with no spaces) add an equal sign, then the page url from that pictures page at Flickr.

That will give you the same thing as getting the Flickr-supplied code and deleting the 2nd  & 3rd lines.

HTH,

Lisa

Lisa, you make me laugh! No, I had not noticed my mistake...You are so sweet to assume I know what you are talking about. I went into panic mode when I first read your reply! Had two more cups of coffee and decided to pull up my big girl panties and figure this out. I am so clearly never meant to be a techy programmer.
But I think I'm getting it. Just wish this didn't come with all the jargon. Like  "you need the start doodad and the stop doodad." Would look much less intimating to us non-computer-literate types.   :) ;) :D ;D

And big thanks for your help and patience.

Testing. It worked but it's a clickable link. Is there a better way just to add the pic without the link or is that just how Flickr works?

Nicely done, Theresa!  Flickr's user agreement requires a link-back to Flickr when you show an image direct-linked (aka hot-linked) back to Flickr, so the code they give you supplies it (and makes your picture a clickable link back to Flickr).

Hi Mfedna!

If you highlight that code string, and then click the first button in the second row over the editing window (looks like a little picture and, if you put your cursor over it will say "insert image"), you'll put img tags around your image's url.  it will look like this:
Code: [Select]
[img]https://photos.smugmug.com/Garments2/i-68NdtHG/0/55f7fd2a/S/image-S.jpg[/img]
Which will resolve like this:


Note that you can get the same thing by starting with clicking the insert image button (1st button, 2nd row) and leaving your cursor between the img tags and then pasting the image url from SmugMug. 

Please give it another try!

Just gave it a try myself.  So, here's what I did.

1.  Went to your photo's page in the gallery, "this one."

2.  Put my cursor on the image and copied the image's url.  (To do that, I right-clicked, which gave me a drop-down menu.  In my browser (Chrome), I chose "copy image address."  You should have a similar choice, even if you don't use Chrome. )

3.  Then I went to the reply window where I wanted the image, and put my cursor where I wanted the image to appear.  Then clicked the "insert image" button above the reply window (1st button in the second row of buttons), which gave you img tags. (When you get the img tags, your cursor will be between them, which is exactly where you want it.)

4.  Without moving my cursor, I pasted the image's url between the img tags.  (On a PC, that will be "Ctrl+V").

That's it.  Hit the preview button to see if you have what you want.

Please give it a try!  ;) ;D

It shouldn't be.  If you have trouble, we can ask Fzxdoc (Kathryn) to help, as she also uses a Mac.   My iPad is on the fritz right now, so I can't try that. 

Let us know how it goes.

Hi Celia!

Almost...you managed to accidentally delete the opening "[" on the closing img tag.  If I copy your code and add that missing square bracket (just after ".jpeg" and before "/img", the code looks like this:

Code: [Select]
[img]http://artisanssquare.com/sg/gallery/0/176-070917171924.jpeg[/img]
which resolves like this:


Please give it another try!
