TypePad Photo Problems

I couldn't find this exact issue addressed in the archives, but this is causing me a major headache.

I normally upload my photos to Flickr, then have been linking the images into my TypePad blog.

When first using TypePad, I uploaded a few images, then took that HTML. I've been copying that, just replacing the URLs and sizes. I'd show an example, but it keeps showing the picture!

Lately when I do this, I keep receiving error messages saying that my HTML is overly complex or malformed, then it freezes up. I've literally been trying to work on a single post all week long, and can't seem to get anywhere.

If you use TypePad/Flickr, how are you getting your images up? I know you can just upload to the blog, but I'd rather avoid having to upload the pics twice in a row. And really, I'd love to get back into blogging, and not fuss with all of this image placement!!

sample code:

[a href=""][img src="" width="200" border="0" style="float: right; margin: 0px 0px 5px 5px;" /][/a]

I can help, but I need a little clarification. When I go to your site now I see some photos that have flickr urls. Are you saying that you weren't having trouble at that point, but that you are now?

Can you post some sample html for what you're trying to do?

I've been able to do the last few posts with my old method, but it is extremely difficult and time-consuming...

I'll try to re-post the code without it just showing the picture.

Could you post the code using [ and ] instead of < and > ?

Thanks, Susan!

I just happened to come across your blog. Nice posts. I like this one very much. They are more content oriented than the usual ones you find these days. And the best part is the simplicity in your posts and the language you use in them.
