Plugin Directory


Shashin is a powerful WordPress plugin that lets you easily display photos and videos from Picasa, Twitpic, and Youtube in your WordPress site.


  • WordPress 3.0 or higher
  • PHP 5.1.2 or higher
  • mySQL 4.1 or higher
  • jQuery 1.7 or higher

First time installation

  1. Download and activate Shahsin just like any other plugin
  2. Go to the Shashin Tools Menu to add your Picasa, Youtube, or Twitpic feeds (there are detailed instructions on the page)
  3. Go to the Shashin Settings Menu to review and update your preferences
  4. Go to the WordPress widget menu to add the Shashin widget to your sidebar if you want
  5. Edit a post or page and use the media manager to add photos and albums from Shashin
  6. Note that Shashin will add two tables to your WordPress database, named wp_shashin_album and wp_shashin_photo. It's important to include these tables when making backups of your WordPress tables. The Shashin shortcodes rely on ID numbers stored in these tables.

Upgrading from Shashin 2

  1. Download the current version of Shashin, and then deactivate and reactivate it from the main plugin menu.
  2. Go to the Shashin Tools Menu and click "sync all" to complete the upgrade
  3. Go to the Shashin Settings Menu and select the option to support the old shortcode format (or you can revise your shortcodes to the new format)
  4. Carefully review pages and posts that contain Shashin tags to make sure everything looks correct
  5. If all is well, click the link on the Shashin Tools Menu to remove the Shashin 2 database table backups
  6. Go to the WordPress widget menu to add the Shashin widget to your sidebar if you want (the old widgets are gone)
  7. If you were calling Shashin functions directly in PHP, they are no longer supported. There is a new function you can call. See the documentation page linked from the FAQ section.
