p.s. The thread has indeed been "unstickied" by me posting here, that is odd.

Mods: should I keep posting updates here?

It has been a 'feature' of the forum software for some time that stickies only stay in place if either the first post in the topic is from a moderator/admin or if the OP doesn't post in.

To get around the problem I've copied in a post of mine to the head of this topic, which should allow Argote to post in here and keep the sticky in place...

The feature that I would like would be a translator from flickr's html code for inserting an image into the equivalent dyxum forum code, since flickr has a feature that allows you to grab the html.

Ie, something that allows you to input <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/34353273@N00/4762781182/" title="DSC02528 (Large) by chris_hotwire, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4134/4762781182_207dc10cb1.jpg" width="500" height="333" alt="DSC02528 (Large)" /></a> (this code copied straight from flickr)

And get as an output the right code to paste into dyxum to allow this:



instead of having to manually edit the code to suit dyxum's requirements, which when posting multiple images can get very tedious.

Select the old medium image size and deselect all of the options? Or do you not want the photo title and description?

Whenever I post an image, I like to have it with a link when you click the image. On the flickr page for an image, do you see a button that says "Share this"? If you click on that, then on "Grab the HTML", it gives the code to insert into a webpage, or any forum that accepts HTML. I can pick the size I want, etc.

Unfortunately, dyxum's forum code does not permit html.

Your mechanism is an improvement, but does only allows to go 20 images back. It's all variations on the same end goal.

If I may ask, why not use the grab link instead of the grab HTML in Flickr? The grab link does not require any tedious editing.

Ah yes, I'm well aware that Flickr lets you do that, I'm working on getting more than the lastest 20 images (I can currently get the latest 100 images but the Flickr API Agreement states that you should only query for a maximum of 20 images at a time).
I'm planning on adding sets and collections too but that will take time.

I wrote a small python program to do this, complete with a GUI, in just 99 lines of code. It requires PyGTK for the GUI. Get it here.
