flickrRSS

Allows you to integrate Flickr photos into your site. It supports user, set, favorite, group and community photostreams.

Feedback and Support

I don't use the plugin anymore and don't really support it. If you're having issues, you could try visiting the WordPress forums or the old Google group.

Advanced

The plugin also supports a number of parameters, allowing you to have multiple instances across your site.

  1. 'type' => 'user' - The type of Flickr images that you want to show. Possible values: 'user', 'favorite', 'set', 'group', 'public'
  2. 'tags' => '' - Optional: Can be used with type = 'user' or 'public', comma separated
  3. 'set' => '' - Optional: To be used with type = 'set'
  4. 'id' => '' - Optional: Your Group or User ID. To be used with type = 'user' or 'group'
  5. 'do_cache' => false - Enable the image cache
  6. 'cache_sizes' => array('square') - What are the image sizes we want to cache locally? Possible values: 'square', 'thumbnail', 'small', 'medium' or 'large'
  7. 'cache_path' => '' - Where the images are saved (server path)
  8. 'cache_uri' => '' - The URI associated to the cache path (web address)
  9. 'num_items' => 4 - The number of images that you want to display
  10. 'before_list' => '' - The HTML to print before the list of images
  11. 'html' => '<a href="%flickr_page%" title="%title%"><img src="%image_square%" alt="%title%"></a&>' - the code to print out for each image. Meta tags available: %flickr_page%, %title%, %image_small%, %image_square%, %image_thumbnail%, %image_medium%, %image_large%
  12. 'default_title' => "Untitled Flickr photo" - the default title
  13. 'after_list' => '' - the HTML to print after the list of images

Example 1

<?php get_flickrRSS(array('num_items' => 10, 'type' => 'public', 'tags' => 'london,people')); ?>

This would show the 10 most recent community photos tagged with london and people. It won't show photos with only one of the tags.

Example 2

<?php get_flickrRSS(array('set' => '72157601681097311', 'num_items' => 20, 'type' => 'set', 'id' => '44124462494@N01')); ?>

This would show the 20 most recent thumbnail sized photos from the specified user's set.
