Embed Flickr Images

When inserting images using the new automatic embed process, is that it sometimes doesn’t work.  Read: it RARELY works.  For example, if you insert the link like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cathytibbles/4017760583/, it won’t work (see?)

It doesn’t work like this:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/cathytibbles/4017760583/

(note that its centered)

.

Right aligned, left-aligned, with caption, without – all don’t work.

Basically, if you’d like to use any automatic embed feature, you must copy it exactly, return to post screen, go to new line, press paste the link, press <enter> again.

To use the embed code, try this:

1.  Go to your image and copy the embed code like so:

2.  Open your WordPress site, and paste the code into the HTML tab (now called “TEXT”).

 

3. IMPORTANT: save draft BEFORE returning to the visual tab.
