Flickr HTML problems

Feel free to delete this if it has been said before, but I am at the end of my rope here. The new uploader is all but working, the simple uploader pretty much destroys the quality of my images, no matter how small or large the photo. My last chance is Flickr HTML, but every link, every combination, seems to come up short. What can I do? What am I doing wrong? Any help would be SO appreciated.

I mean there are only the embedded and the BB link, mocpages hates JavaScript and the other link turns out a dud.

For Flickr links you want the embed code, not the BB code, but you need to delete everything after the </a> to get rid of the script stuff at the end.

I.e., change from this:
<a ... ><img ...></a><script>...</script>
to this:
<a ... ><img ...></a>

And you're right about the quality of the simple uploader. It encodes jpeg at a shocking 80%, whereas the java uploader (which most people can't easily use now) encodes at a mix of 90% and 95%.

Note you'll still have to do the main picture using one of the MOCpages uploaders. No way around that.

Ill try that out! Is there a way to even use that uploader anymore? Easily atleast? I've searched these threads but they are so cluttered I can't find a solution.

It's long and complicated to set up but once you do it, you are set to go.

1. You have to use Internet Explorer for any and all uploads these days. Other browsers no longer support Java for some reason, but it is what it is. Accept that reality. If you're using a Mac, give Safari a shot, but no guarantee, I have little experience with Apple.

2. Open up the fancy uploader and download the latest version of Java.

3. You have to configure Java to not block MOCpages. Select Start in the bottom left corner and do a search for "Configure Java"

4. When the Java Control Panel is open, go to the security tab in the window and select Edit Site List. This is where some people have run into a problem because the button literally does not exist for them. I'm still running on Windows 7, so that may have something to do with it. Some say just to have http://www.moc-pages.com and all problems will be fixed. Personally, that did not work for me, but if you copy the URL for the window that opens as the fancy uploader: http://www.mocpages.com/lib/uploader2010/upload_FORM.php?main= then the uploader will always work, but remember Internet Explorer only as for what was said in the first step.

5. Try uploading. You will most likely be given an error message stating that what you are doing can leave you vulnerable given blah blah blah it's all Java's fault, just say that you accept the risk and run the program.

6. Upload your MOC. Fancy uploader works, no problems at all.

Is it annoying to have to use a different browser just to upload?
Yes, but you don't have to put up with the carpshoot of the old uploader properly uploading one photo at a time. Yeah, I've tried uploading one photo with that thing and it DIED trying. Maybe my image was too large, but boo, that's no good.

Do you have to do everything in Internet Explorer?
Outside of uploading pictures, no. But I would recommend the initial posting of a creation with all your descriptions and such being in Internet Explorer so you can make things pretty final. If you want to make edits later because of a typo or whatever comes up, you can always use Mozilla or Chrome or any other browser there may be.

Good luck! Hopefully I was pretty clear, let me know if you have any problems. Sorry I'm a month late to helping you.

Oh and every now and then, you'll be asked to download the latest version of Java. That's the only thing you have to worry about in the future. You won't have to reconfigure Java to allow the uploader page, but it will keep you from uploading your MOC for a few minutes.
