I know there is a "secret" way to display pages from Flickr.com in the old style -- which the majority of old users preferred.

How do I consistently and automatically view pages in this style?

  1. Install "Redirector" Chrome extension

  2. Go to chrome://extensions, and find Redirector, and click options.

  3. Create a new redirect.

    • From: (https://www.flickr.com/photos/[a-zA-Z0-9]+/*)$
    • To: $1?details=1
  • Psuedo-related: If you want to click facebook links in forwarded emails from other users, without getting logged out and having to log in again, add this one: FROM: (.*)(facebook.com)(.*)(&mid=.*) TO: $1$2$3 ..... Obviously if you do not have access to the post, you'll be directed to nothing. But my wife & I share facebook emails, and click each other's "View post" links daily, so this has saved us 5 logins a day, each, for a good year now.
