    Hi,
    I've been searching high and low and haven't had much luck in finding a way to show flickr notes in wordpress.

    I stumbled upon these two methods;
    http://www.elsewhere.org/mbedr/
    http://webdev.yuan.cc/flickr/flickr_notes.html

    However I haven't been able to get them to work on my server. I was hoping there might be a simpler way, can anyone recommend a plugin that has this capability built in?

    Thanks for any ideas!!

    What kind of problems are you having getting mbedr working on your site? I use it on my WordPress sites without issues.

    hi rjl20,

    Thanks for getting back to me, your mbedr tool is fantastic!!

    The only problem I was having was to get it running off of my own webserver. As long as I use your webserver, it works fine. Although, I wanted to keep my site as "independent" as possible, do you have any instructions for setting up your scripts to run on ones own server?

    Thanks again!!

    I've uploaded a newer version of the script which has some comments at the top about what you need to change in order to get it working somewhere else: http://www.elsewhere.org/mbedr/dev/src/index.php.txt

    The basic instructions are:

    1: download everything from http://www.elsewhere.org/mbedr/dev/src/
    2: copy the files to your own web host
    3: remove ".txt" from the end of all the filenames
    4: edit index.php and set the three variables near the top which specify the URL of your installation, your Flickr API key, and the path to the cache directory you want to use.

    This isn't really wordpress related, so if you need further help, feel free to drop me a line at the mbedr comment thread: http://www.elsewhere.org/journal/archives/2008/02/23/mbedr/
