    Hi,

    1.16 worked perfectly, an excellent little plugin!
    Upgraded to 1.18 and ended up with broken links to pictures. Cleared the cache and tried to change the style but to no avail.
    Changed back to 1.16 and it all worked fine again.

    Hi Swebby,

    Thanks for your feedback and question. Sorry had problem with 1.18

    I released Slickr Flickr 1.19 today with a couple of bug fixes so this might address the issue of the missing photos.

    Please let me know the URL of your page, your Flickr ID and specific slickr-flickr command you used and I will try and reproduce the problem with 1.19.

    BTW I have had seen some broken links in the last week just trying to view photos directly on Flickr so the problem might not be plugin related - see the comments on this post on the Slickr Flickr support site

    Regards
    Russell

    Hi Russell,

    Cheers for getting back so quickly. I have tried 1.19 and have the same problem. To be honest 1.16 works so well on my site I don't really need to update it.
    Here are my details.

    Hi Sean,

    I tried to reproduce the problem but to no avail - your gallery works fine on my support site - see Photos with Broken Links.

    If you are not too busy and would like to delve deeper into the problem please comment on my various suggestions there and I will get straight back to you.

    Or you could take the approach of just waiting - the broken link issues I have seen before resolve themselves usually within 24 hours by which time Flickr have resynchronized all their servers.

    Hi Sean,

    Fine, we will see what happens tomorrow.

    A recent broken photos issue is logged on the Flickr Help Forum

    It seemed to resolve itself within the day

    Regards

    Russell

    Okay, well a little longer than I expected as I went away.
    Unfortunately it doesn't seem to have resolved itself.
    However, I am quite happy with the 1.16 plugin, it does what I want it to do with no hassle at all, so I think I will just stick with that one for now. I will keep testing new versions as you bring them out just in case things change.
    Many thanks again for helping.

    Regards
    Sean

    The issue here is that Slickr Flickr requires PHP 5 and your web server is running PHP 4.

    I have now made this explicit in the plugin requirements.

    If you upgrade your site to PHP 5 then Slickr Flickr will starting working again

    Apologies for not tracking this one down sooner

    Regards

    Russell

    Hi Russell,

    Thanks for pointing that out, I had assumed the company hosting my site would have upgraded it automatically but I have just seen that I can do it myself and have done so.
    Slickr Flickr is now working properly with your latest version.

    Again Thanks

    Sean
