Why can't I insert image links?

  1. I follow the guidelines to insert image links, but whatever url I paste, I get a red cross in front of it and the "Insert into Post" button stays grey. Connected my Flickr account to my blog, plaayed with image licensing, kept trying for a few hours today, even installed Chrome (normally I use Firefox 4); nothing. What else could be wrong?

  2. You are probably using a flickr html page link and not a direct image link. An image link ends in .jpg, .gif, or .png. Can you check to make sure you are using a direct image link?

    If you're not sure, please post an example of a link you tried to use and we'll take a look for you.

  3. Thanks, you're absolutely right. Didn't cross my mind there could be a difference :) Thanks so much for such prompt response.

  4. I'm happy I could help! Cheers. :)
