Quick Flickr Widget
[resolved] Where did all the features go? (9 posts)

    First off, excellent plug-in.

    However:

    Updated to the new version, but it messed my widget up - what happened to all of the options for sizing, adding titles, HTML before and after, etc.? Should I be looking somewhere other than the widget to fine tune those options?

    As is, I cannot use it. Switched back to 1.2.10 for the time being.

    Hi @cloudstar_blog, I updated the plugin for security and compatibility with the newer WordPress versions, I removed some of the features you're missing. Show me your blog and let me know what you'd like to do, and I'll tell you how to do (most of) it via CSS instead.

    Sorry for causing the trouble, this is the first update to the plugin in three years :)

    No worries, I was actually surprised to see it updated. I only installed it last week, and when I downloaded it I think there was some kind of "Hasn't been updated in a long time" warning. :) So thanks for taking the time to update it!

    Anyhow, the blog I'm working on is located at: http://blog.cloudstar.com

    The features I use that seem to be missing are:

    - Thumbnail sizing. The default size on 1.3 was too large.

    - "Before/After widget." I use this to add a tag to center the alignment.

    - Target="_blank". I didn't check to see on 1.3 if it opens in a new window/tab, but I would like it to, so I check this option in 1.2.10.

    - Display Titles. Not critical, but a nice feature!

    - Random pick. I could take it or leave it. I have it checked on right now.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi there, you can use the following CSS to center-align and have the images smaller in width:

    .quick-flickr-item, .quick-flickr-item img {
        width: 100px;
        margin: 0 auto;
    }

    Let me know if that works for you. As for the rest of the features, if you absolutely need them, I'll be able to add specific actions and filters which you can take advantage of in a theme functions.php or plugin file, in a future version. 1.2.10 is insecure, uses old wp code, doesn't allow more than one instance and more. My advice is to update to 1.3, even if you'll have to face several limitations.

    Thanks!

    Thanks! Those were the biggest issues, so I'll try it out.

    The CSS worked perfectly. I modified it a bit to add some space between the images:

    .quick-flickr-item, .quick-flickr-item img {
        width: 100px;
        margin: 0 auto;
        padding-top: 5px
    }

    Looks beautiful!

    Thank you so much for your help!

    I was also able to modify the quick_flickr_widget.php to open the links in a new window/tab. Pretty straight forward:

    $item = sprintf( '<a href="%s" target="_blank"><img src="%s" alt="%s" /></a>', $link, $src, $title );

    Yeah but you'll probably loose that during the next update :)

    Hiya,

    Is there any way to remove the line break and have x number of images per line instead? I've just got a whole bunch of smaller photos in a line!
