using the <img> tag in posts and comments (3 posts)

    Hi all,

    I am attempting to use the <img src="" /> tag in posts and comments so that user can easily post images without having to upload them on my server.

    The problem I am having is I can get some images to appear say from facebook, but other links don't work like from flickr.

    Anyone know why or know of a sure fire way?

    Jayce

    With version 2.9 you should not need the <img> tag ... the new Embeds feature will do it for you. Here is the codex page about the new feature:

    Thanks cais,

    I have upgraded and got it to work, however, everytime I place the link in th editor it automatically puts them into a link which according to the codex does not work.

    I have to go into html and delete the link.

    Also I am not sure if I can use the height and width doing it this way?
