    Didn't see what looked like the right section to post this so trying here. I was in Flicker and clicked on the share icon (curving arrow) of a photo then evidently clicked something wrong because now when I try to share an image the BBC Code options zip past and I'm left with a white page that says "Share one photo to:" at the top but with no copy and paste option. How do I get back to the copy and pasteable BBC Code?

    Under "Share on photo to:" you should see a row that says "Share", "Embed", "Email", and "BBcode".

    You can also set the size of the image you want to share (pre-defined fixed sizes.)

    Thanks. The problema is that row of options zips past to the left and I'm left with a blank page with the share your photo to: line of type at the top.

    You should have this big box of options
    with the Share, Embed, Email and BBCode options <== click on which one you want.

    and then the address link

    and below a drop down for sizes

    I think he knows what he should see, but it's not loading or staying loaded correctly. Maybe a restart of his browser, a different browser, a reboot of the puter etc.

    I am unable to find any references to this on the web. I did some searches ... which turned up some very old articles, but am not finding anything reasonably current.

    Of all the things Yahoo owns, Flickr seems to be one of the more successful things that Yahoo offers.

    Flickr is successful for photographers.
    But not for Yahoo. It has been money losing.
    ==> Why Yahoo's Core Business is Negatively Valued | Investopedia

    making decision on spending on other things other companies didn't want (tv content in this example)
    ==> Yahoo $42M write-down caused by unprofitable 'Community'

    and then the push to sell their internet business. Of course, the problem is that the internet business has a negative valuation.
    ==> Yahoo mulls shareholder demand to sell Internet business

    ==> Yahoo board 'weighing sale of core business and Marissa Mayer's future'


    Dec 2014 an article of how yahoo screwed up Flickr ==> This Quote Perfectly Sums Up How Yahoo Killed Flickr

    Having gone through all of these... one article mentions that they own Flickr, but never mentions anything specifically about it.

    The remaining articles don't contain "Flickr" anywhere in the text.

    It's not secret that Yahoo isn't doing well. I've seen recent press that they've announced closings of many offices. I just haven't seen anything even hinting at anything to do with Flickr.

    Flickr was revamped about a year ago with a desperately needed make-over (dumping the old Web 1.0 user interface) and introducing mobile apps for phones, tablets, etc. It's actually enjoyable to use it again.
