Try using the
tags instead of the popup box. Also make sure you are linking to each individual image's url (not photostream/ album or gallery links).

I fixed the first one for you.

Flickr is a real pain to link photos, but once you figure out the trick you can get it to work. Here's how to do it:

1. On the page that contains the picture, click on the "Share" button (the arrow) at the bottom-right.
2. On the little dialog box that pops up, use the pull-down menu to select the size you want to show. For the first photo I chose "Medium 800 x 531". As a courtesy to us viewers, please do not select an overly large size, especially if you've got more than about 10 photos. IMO the size I chose was about right.
3. Make sure that "BBCode" right above it is selected.
4. Below the size pull-down dialog there is a box that contains some code. Here is the code for that photo (except I changed all the [ and ] to { and } to keep it from showing the photo):
{url=https://flic.kr/p/nXiBgu}{img}https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3848/14409334950_9269918336_c.jpg{/img}{/url}{url=https://flic.kr/p/nXiBgu}Madison 7.5-7.6.2014{/url} by {url=https://www.flickr.com/people//}[email protected]{/url}, on Flickr
5. Select the code, right-click and select "Copy." At this point you could actually just post that code and it will show, though you'll get a messy tag to the right of the photo. You can put the tag *below* the photo by pressing "Enter" just between the "[/url]" and "" in the code. Like this:
This is what you would get:
[url=https://flic.kr/p/nXiBgu]
Madison 7.5-7.6.2014 by [email protected], on Flickr

Technically, that's how we're supposed to do it. Personally I don't like having the link to my album after my photos, so what I do is extract just the "https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3848/14409334950_9269918336_c.jpg" from the code, and put the
tags before and after the image code. But we're technically not supposed to do that so don't tell anyone. :)

Great, now that I have this figured out, here are the rest of those photos in medium size.

1. What baseball team is that in Madison?

2. God, our capitol building is awesome!

3. I'm jealous that Madison has more cranes in the air than Milwaukee (for now)...

4. Keep the Madison photos coming, I rarely make it out there but I love seeing the only other "big" city in Wisconsin through photos. Madison and Milwaukee both have so many different, unique qualities. They compliment each other perfectly. I would rather see Milwaukee and Madison become one mega-metro area than Milwaukee and Chicago (which is on the verge of happening).

I just bought a house right off lake Monona. I plan on riding the bike around town and taking some good shots of the city. I'll post them on here. Bucksfan, I appreciate the pics of MKE. Keep them coming!
