This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



Fickree provides an editor button for simple flickr queries, but feel free to manually add short code attributes for more complex requirements (All flickr API method-specific arguments are available)

Control your own markup with mustache-based templating (Comes with 4 templates out of the box – attributed, caption, default and thick box).

a) The properties available for each photo regardless of method used
b) The arguments available for each query (including convenience arguments “size” and “display”)

Templates can include all of the data flickr returns for photos including:

id, owner, server, title, ispublic, description, dateupload, lastupdate, latitude, tags and many many more!

Queries can include any of flickr method attributes as arguments, (all extras are included by default) such as:

‘privacy_filter’, ‘text’, ‘min_upload_date’,’sort’, ‘safe_search’, ‘place_id’, ‘geo_context’ and many many more!

Why another flickr plugin?

Most flickr plugins are only good for specific use cases. This plugin provides a more sophisticated
approach: it can be as simple or as complex as you like.

Flickree steers away from elaborate markup, dependencies and full-featured galleries. Instead Flickree
empowers you to easily integrate flickr with your gallery of choice – orbit, fancybox, lightbox etc.
Having said that, flickree is pretty gentle on newcomers, providing a thickbox template out of the box.

Flickree also comes with three other templates: default (minimal layout), attributed (for creative
commons attribution) and caption (WordPress caption markup).

My thickbox template isn’t working

As flickree keeps the markup separate from any dependent style and script, we just need to paste
the following code into your functions.php file:

add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_enqueue_scripts');
function my_enqueue_scripts(){
  wp_enqueue_style('thickbox'); //include thickbox .css
  wp_enqueue_script('jquery');  //include jQuery
  wp_enqueue_script('thickbox'); //include Thickbox jQuery plugin
Where can I get my flickr api key?

How do I get my Flickr photoset_id?

How do I get my Flickr group id?
