Apparently if I send a photo from flickr to my blog, it immediately publishes it. That’s not going to work for me. I want to write a post, include a photo (probably multiple photos), edit the text, fiddle with it, add categories and tags, etc. etc. before I click that “publish” button.
So, I’m trying a couple other things. Feel free to move on. It’s only those same two iguanas again, and again, and again….
This seems to work but I don’t want to have to publish every photo to get the url before I write the post I want to write.
I got this link from flickr –
nope…… I want the photo, not the link to it. lets try the other code
Ah ha! I think that worked! I cut/pasted the HTML/BBC code into the text window of this post, and my photo showed up. You have to put it in the text/html window though, not the visual / main one or you just get the code in your text like this below. So, you have to be familiar enough with code to be able to insert it in the spot where you want it.

OK, I think this will work. I have some other ideas too, so there may be more tests along the way. I promise not to make you look at these two iguanas any more though, interesting as they are! Thanks for your patience.
