I am using IFTTT.com to watch my Flickr photostream and make a WordPress post. The IFTTT recipe uses:

{{FlickrUrl}}<br>
{{Description}}<br>
<a href="{{FlickrUrlShort}}">via Flickr</a>

The <br> after the {{FlickrUrl}} is not being parsed. I end up with 'br' on the end of the photo URL and the link doesn't work.

For example

http://www.flickr.com/photos/brantwinter/8853319926

is being added to the blog as:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/brantwinter/8853319926br

The br is breaking the URL string

Any help would be appreciated.

    Can't you just add a regular old carriage return to the line? As far as I know IFTTT doesn't support HTML in fields. – ale May 28 '13 at 12:54

    You might also contact support@ifttt.com with the recipe ID. I've found them to be very responsive. – ale May 28 '13 at 13:00

So the awesome guys at IFTTT sorted this out for me:

[embed]{{FlickrUrl}}[/embed]<br>
{{Description}}

The [embed] tags were the answer !

  • so, do you still need the <br> tags, if the [embed] tags were the answer? – seemly May 9 '16 at 7:47

Also, using only br tag works for me !

{{FlickrUrl}}<br>
