Alpine PhotoTile for Flickr
Not satisfied (3 posts)

    First of all, installing the plugin works good. Very easy. Very good explanation.

    The only reason why I am not satisfied, is that it is not possible to use photos that are marked "private" in Flickr.

    The plugin generates an error message, which does not explain the origin of the problem. It says:
    Sorry:
    - Attempt 1: Photoset not found
    - Attempt 2: Photoset not found
    - Please recheck your ID(s).
    So the real problem is, the photos are marked private.

    Is there a solution for this? (I want to keep the photos protected by password in WP and want to keep them not public visible in Flickr).

    And I am not happy with the limit of only 30 photos

    The 30 photo limit is because the Flickr API Terms of Service, http://www.flickr.com/services/api/tos/, require all plugins to have a 30 photo limit.

    The reason that the plugin does not show private photos is that retrieving those photos requires authentication every time the plugin is displayed (In other words, you must log into your Flickr account before the plugin is allowed to access private photos). I might added authentication to a future version, but I am afraid that it will add complexity and slow down the plugin. I will try it out though.
