using Flickr, when i click on a picture and click share, it doesn't give me the option for BBCode? where is it?

It's right underneath the Twitter button.

Flickr changed their layout a but since this tutorial was written, so some options have moved around a bit.

One of those days I'll update everything with current screenshot.

This is what you should see:

I don't know what to say, other than something isn't right. Certain buttons aren't showing up for you for some reason...

If you're comfortable with it, feel free to PM me your login info with a temp password or something and I could have a look, see if I could figure it out.

I write it as a PM to myself. This let's me format it properly from the very beginning and I could save my work easily by hitting send.

You can always click on "preview" before posting.

See instructions again, basically cut most of the link.
