Flickr Plugin Installation
- Go to the Plugins->Add New section of the Admin Panel.
- Either search for "Alpine PhotoTile for Flickr" or upload the
alpine-photo-tile-for-flickr folder using the upload tool.
- Go to the Plugins->Installed Plugins and activate the "Alpine PhotoTile for Flickr" plugin.
Add a Flickr API Key
- Make sure you are logged into Flickr.com and then visit http://www.flickr.com/services/apps/create/.
- Under "Get your API Key", click the "Request an API Key" link.
- Next, click the button that says "APPLY FOR A NON-COMMERCIAL KEY". Even if your website is commercial, the Alpine Flickr plugin is non-commercial.
- A form will appear. Fill in the form with your information. Check the two boxes and finish by clicking "Submit".
- Copy and paste the Key into the form on the plugin's "Add API Key" page. Click "Save API Key" and you are all done.
Using the Flickr Widget
- Use the widget like any other widget. Go to Appearance->Widgets in the left menu. Find the rectangle labeled "Alpine PhotoTile for Flickr". Click and drag the rectangle to one of the sidebar containers on the right.
- Customize Alpine PhotoTile for Flickr plugin based on your preference.
Using the Flickr Shortcode
- A shortcode is a line of texted used for loading plugins within WordPress pages or posts. Rather than explaining how to setup the shortcode, I have added a tool to the Alpine PhotoTile for plugin that generates the shortcode for you. Visit the "Shortcode Generator" on the Flickr plugin's settings page (Settings->AlpineTile: Flickr->Shortcode Generator).
