Flickr Shortcode Importer by Aihrus
[resolved] Migrating out of flickr manager (5 posts)

    Hey-

    This is a really cool plugin! I think it will do what I'm looking for, I just had two questions on a sample page migration. Here is a reference page:
    http://www.danradigan.com/wordpress/2013/01/day-4-hong-kong/

    1. Is there a way to map to using the same sizes in the flickr_manager plugin that's specified in the short code? There are key sizes in the plugin here:
    Square
    Large Square
    Thumbnail
    Small
    Small 320
    Medium
    Medium 640
    Medium 800
    Large
    Original

    2. What's the best way to have a light box pop up after migration? I'm using the one built into flickr_manager and wanted to see if there was an easy one to migrate to.

    1. Already does it.

    2. Lightbox is usually a plugin adaption than something to worry about when doing FSI.

    Heck, just try FSI and see what happens. It'll probably do what you want nearly right out of the box.

    Hey Michael-

    I make heavy use of small and medium_640 as thumbnails in my posts. I have an original one here:
    http://www.danradigan.com/wordpress/2013/01/day-2-hong-kong/

    And a converted one here:
    http://www.danradigan.com/wordpress/2001/02/day-2-converted-test/

    It appears that the thumbnails on import are not respecting their normal size pre post. I'm seeing that the medium_640 thumbnails are getting converted to 300px max dimensions and the small ones are getting converted into squares.

    Is there a global setting I am missing?

    This seems to be now resolved. I had the wordpress thumbnail setting overriding the image sizing. I'm curious to know if the plugin can generate relative links to the attachments and images, but I'll keep digging. All in all it seems to be working ok.

    Great to hear. I'm cycling Sabah, so I might be delayed in responding.
