Flickr Slideshow Plugin


The Flickr Slideshow plugin allows WordPress blog operators to easily embed slideshows of
their Flickr photo sets in to posts and pages.

Slideshows are displayed using Flickr’s flash slideshow application as seen when you choose
to view a slideshow of any set of Flickr photos.

Key features:

  • Use your photos which are already organised in to sets on Flickr.
    No need to re-upload or mess around to get your slideshow up and running.
  • Dead simple to use.
    All you need is the ID of the photo set you want to show and you are a few clicks away
    from showing off your photos to your readers.
  • Integrated in to WYSIWYG editor.
    The plugin adds a button to WP’s WYSIWYG editor so you don’t have to remember any
    complicated commands. Everything is crystal clear.
  • 100% standards-compliant code.
    Flickr Slideshow’s tag implementation means that your blog still validates
    according to W3C standards.


  • TinyMCE, the plugin's buttons, and the plugin's dialog window.


  1. Extract all files from the ZIP file, making sure to keep the file structure intact,
  2. Upload it to ‘/wp-content/plugins/’. This should give you multiple subfolders and files.
  3. Visit your WP admin area and activate the plugin through the plugin management screen.


I want to change the default settings of the plugin

Flickr Slideshow plugin’s default settings are held in ‘/plugins/flickrSlideshow/lib/shortcodes.php’
Modify the values held in the $default_attributes array to suit your blog then re-activate the Flickr Slideshow plugin.

I want to change the way Flickr Slideshow is styled

Flickr Slideshow wraps the flash flash object in a single DIV tag with the class “flickr_slideshow”.
You can either manipulate this DIV using your own stylesheet or change the code surrounding the flash
object in ‘/plugins/flickrSlideshow/lib/shortcodes.php’
