    Setting up my site and would love to use this plug-in!

    When I press the "Authorize with Flickr" button, I'm taken to a blank screen instead of flickr. The URL i'm sent to is as follows:


    It sits there and doesn't load anything else. I tried in both Chrome and Safari. Any ideas? The only customization that might be causing an issue (that I can think of) is that I have wordpress in the /wordpress directory, but I have it set to load from the main page. Let me know if this causes an issue.

    Just curious if anyone else had seen this issue or not. I have two WordPress sites and I'm seeing the same behavior on both. The second one is not customized at all.

    Try re-saving permalinks once the plugin is activated. It needs to modify the Apache rewrite rules to allow the custom query vars (__wpgfe_flickr, etc.) to be allowed through.

    Same issue for me, goes to a blank page, even after re-saving permalinks.

    Could you give detailed instructions for what is required in the htaccess for the rewrite rules?

    Has anyone solved this issue yet? I am getting the same thing.

    1. I saved permalinks
    2. #1 above verified that the .htaccess files is writable

    Thanks much!
