The ability to link photos with BBCode from Flickr seems to have gone again (or at least do it correctly).
Now instead of just the title and image we have links and text which shouldn't be there. Clearly demonstrated in @Gromit post 3190 in Random Image of the day. It's tolerable with one image but try to post more than one and it gets messy.
 
Solution
Hopefully a helpful bit of info: if you click the more options menu followed by "Toggle BB Code" and then paste your Flickr photo sharing code in to there it will display the photo the old way without any of the weird text formatting problems. (See attached image)

There is a way I've got rid of the text below the image before Baz... I cut'n'paste the BBcode URL from Flickr and then manually delete all of text after the first [/URL] in the pasted text... and that results in this...



The image is still hotllinked to the Flickr account, but without the additional text... not ideal, but its a work around which links the whole image :)

@Roo

Is this issue closed and in effect users have to change the way images are linked from Flickr or are you still looking at how we could still use a simple BBcode entry from Flickr to link one image without associated 'debris' ? (as we used to)

Still looking into it. The fix isn't as simple as I initially thought so still working it out.
