Just noticed this comment on Flickr help forum

"Beware using the direct URL of the .jpg file, if you're trying to display images on another website. Flickr has strict rules about linking back to the photopage when you display a Flickr-hosted image on another site."
I wonder what those rules are.

The guidelines can found at the bottom of the Flickr website and are straightforward. They ask that you provide a link back to Flickr when posting images (but this is done automatically). There are more rules if you post on Commercial sites. So, don't worry about them.

The Help page tells us to go the Actions, but fails to tell us where to find Actions. Quite a few complaints about this on the help forum.

Can someone do a step by step guide for Flickr please

See my post above on page 8.

To summarise on this particular point: 

1) If you have uploaded an image to your Flickr account, you simply click on the image 
2) You will then see 4 symbols on the lower right 
3) Click oh the second one, the shooting arrow, up pops a 'Share 1 Photo to:' box with a highlighted BB Code 
4) Copy that highlighted BB Code and paste directly into your post
5) Post your post

Job done.

If you click on the image in Camera Roll in Flickr all that happens is that it is selected (but no clue what you can do with them having done so).
You have to create an Album and move the image into that first; then click on it. From the help forum it seems Flickr keep updating how this is done.

I found that I could do it from Camera Roll. Click on the top left of the thumbnail (two opposite diagonal arrows overlay this area). The larger image pops up and a right click offers a Copy Image Location option.

Two different ways, neither clearly exaplained.

I view my images under 'Photostream', you can then follow the step-by-step instructions that I gave above.

Hope this helps.

My computer did not want to play ball the other night.

I will try again at some point and also try to find a now host for my images on photobucket. It doesn't matter that most of them have vanished from sites I used them on, I still have them on my computer. However it is a pain if you had a photo heavy thread

It worked this time.
Thanks for the reminder on how to do it

Interesting information.
The emphasis is mine

We’re excited to announce that Flickr has agreed to be acquired by SmugMug, the photography platform dedicated to visual storytellers.

SmugMug has a long history of empowering people who love photography and who want to improve their craft, making them a perfect fit for Flickr and our creative community. With SmugMug, we’ll continue to focus on you, the Flickr members who inspire us all with your work.

Nothing will change immediately with regard to your Flickr account. You will still access Flickr with your current login credentials and you will have the same Flickr experience as you do now. We will continue to work to make your Flickr experience even better.

Sounds ominous, but I suppose no-one goes into business without wanting to make a profit. 
My Etsy shop - FarFetchedPhilately - is now open again :-)
