Multiple Tags broken? (3 posts)

    After upgrading to 1.16, slideshows pulling from multiple tags appear to be broken. Sideshows from single tags work just fine. Anyone else experiencing this?

    Hi Eric.

    This is Russell the plugin developer here. Thanks for pointing this problem out. You are right that it was introduced in the last release

    Slickr Flickr either accesses photos using the RSS feed or the API key

    For the RSS the parameter name is tagmode - see http://www.flickr.com/services/feeds/docs/photos_public/

    For the API access method the parameter name is tag_mode - see http://www.flickr.com/services/api/flickr.photos.search.html

    I overlooked this subtle but important difference when making changes in the last release. The impact is that the RSS access method will fail when the tagmode='any' and behave as if the 'all' option had been chosen

    I will put out a release in a couple of days that fixes this

    In the meantime you can get your gallery working now by entering your Flickr API key in Slickr Flickr Admin settings and adding the following parameter to your gallery

    use_key='y'

    This works because when you use the API key it sets up the tag_mode parameter correctly.

    I made this same change at http://www.slickrflickr.com/438/making-a-flickr-gallery-or-slideshow-with-more-than-one-tag/ and it works fine there so it should work for your gallery too

    Regards

    Russell

    Thanks for the quick reply, Russell. Things are working well enough for me now, but I'll look forward to the update.
