    errors adding photos from flickr

    hi, when i go to add photos to TFP forum threads, i am getting the following message: "Error: Invalid File". But when i uncheck the "Retrieve remote file and reference locally" box, then i can add the photo. But when I add the photo that way, other users on Tapatalk cant see my photos. Any idea what i am doing wrong?

    Thanks, these are the instructions I have been following. Oddly, it worked no problem when I first started doing it a couple of weeks ago. Just recently I get that invalid file error. I have what seems to be a bypass solution: Uncheck the "Retrieve remote file and reference locally" box, add the photo, then remove all of the text before and after the photo in the post. I dont mind doing it this way, but wanted to make sure it wasnt a forum issue.

    Flickr doesn't have a IMG code box somewhere that you can copy & paste from?

    It has a BBCode but not IMG code, unless it is somewhere I can't find.

    Copy and paste the BB code. This has the "IMG" code already inserted into it along with a link that if you click on the photo takes the user to your account to view more of your shared photos.

    Yes this is what I have been doing. It gives me the error I mentioned and cannot be viewed from tapatalk users.

    What happens when you just copy/paste the BB code right into the post without using the Insert Image "photo frame" icon??
