It’s not too tricky to post an image from Flickr.

At the bottom right of a Flickr image there’s a download icon, (the arrow pointing down to a horizontal line).

Click on it and select a size - Medium (619 x 800) is great for WW threads

Copy and paste the http:// address

Then put [img= before it, and at the end add ][/img]


If you’d like to post links on WW it’s not too tricky:

Just put [url= before the link, and follow it with ]Thread Title[/url]
