This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



WordPress plugin that displays a “location taken map” for all embedded Flickr photos that contain coordinates.

For every photo in a wordpress post/page that is hosted on Flickr, this plugin adds a small red balloon in the top left corner when the mouse is hovering over the photo. If the photo is geotagged on Flickr, a click on the balloon displays a pop-up featuring a Google Satellite map of the surroundings.

Thanks to Tarique Sani, author of the Flickr foto info plugin, no longer maintained and not working anymore, on which geoFlickr is based.

geoFlickr features:

  • very discrete overlay on the image
  • jQuery and thickbox
  • Most calls to the Flickr API are done on the client side – so there is minimal additional load or delay on the server
  • If your photo has geo-location data embedded, shows it as a marker on Google map with reverse geo-location to fetch the place name
  • HTTPS compatible


  1. To configure plugin, go to ‘Settings’ -> ‘geoFlickr’ from the WordPress dashboard
  2. Enter your flickr API key. The key can be obtained for free by visiting


There is nothing to do. Any post or page that has a photo from Flickr embedded will diplay a red balloon when hovering the mouse on the photo.
A click on that balloon will show the map.


Thanks to tariquesani who developped Flickr foto info up to v1.4, up to WP3.5.2, until 2014
