I just inserted a picture in the intro mod, then used the HTML editor to make a small box with the photo credit.  The foto is from Flickr.....http://www.flickr.com/photos/cpjobling/2914909311/in/photostream/  and this is the address in the box (can't think of what it's called :)  Anyway, I tried to save the module...and it did save, sort of, but with this message "The following addresses do not appear to be valid: "http://www.flickr.com/photos/cpjobling/2914909311/in/photostream/%EF%BB%BF""  

 

I double checked and the %EF%BB%BF is not what is in my editor.  Don''t know how to fix this, and need to have the address to give proper attribution for the photo.

Help !

This is that darn bug in the editor. Sometimes it adds those characters. Try to delete just these characters before saving, if possible. Also, refresh the page before a re-try. Or, give me the URL of your article in edit mode , and I have a look.

here's the URL of what I am seeing in edit mode....in the background is the page before saving, and the foreground has the one where it won't let me delete those characters, or anything else.

I took "in photo stream" out of the code, and it worked.

Thanks Chef....so in the future should I (we) leave that part of the URL off?  After 8 hrs of waiting for this to work I would do anything not to have it happen again :)

BTW I have never made a deritive of someone else's photo....is this the right way to do it...tell them it is a deritive of the photo with link back to original saying it's a CC?

I don't know why you had "in/photostream" in there, in the first place. I've never seen it in any of my flickr URL's of image pages. Apparently, this does not work.

Whether or not you're allowed to make derivatives should be stated in the specifics of the image's CC license.

Oh Chef...of course I know "whether or not I'm allowed to make deritives" I only wanted to know if saying it was a deritive was good enough for Wizzley's attribution requirements, with a link :)
