Putting Flickr badge on your website

Over the past few months, I have had a lot of friends ask me how to put their flickr pics on their blogs (just like above this post, or at the top of thise page below banner). I never remember the link, and on Flickr it is not made very apparent of where to find this page on their site. So, if you want to add Flickr pics to your site, go here. http://www.flickr.com/badge.gne

That is so freaky! I was just going to ask you this very same question! Thank you for being psychic.
I went to the link and did everything Flickr said, but I don't know where to insert the code into my blog. Do you know where to put it? Everywhere I tried ended up with the blog showing all the code, and right above the banner. Jeesh, and to think my Dad wanted me to be a programmer!

Hey there,
Ok, you have to put in the Template.
you can enter that code anywhere you want the "badge" to go. But you have to make sure you open the Template and not just put it on your blog posts.

Also make sure all of the opening < -- > and closing "<-->" brackets are there. If even a "<" or a ">" is missing, all of the code will show.

Let me know if you need more help. Good luck. Have fun. Flickr away!

Thanks for the follow-up. I also needed help trying to put this into the template code. You the man.

Thank you so much! But I must still be doing something wrong. I checked for the <>'s, but I still get the badge and text up above my header, even if I think I am putting it in my sidebar. I will keep trying!
I really am smart, really.
