Support » Plugin: Flickr Justified Gallery » [flickr_set id=””] stopped working?

  • Resolved cgzaal


    Dear all,

    My portfolio website relies on the [flickr_set id=””] functionality of the Flickr Justified Gallery plugin. Somehow this function doesn’t work anymore.

    The output of i.e.

    [flickr_set id=”72157637394386434″]

    is just empty.

    The plugin hasn’t changed. It is because I updated to Workpress 4.9?

    Does anyone else experience the same problem?

    Which plugin might be a good alternative?

  • We have the same issue. Just after update to 4.9. Does anybody know if someone is working on solving this issue with this plugin?

    on my site which is on version 4.9.4 it still works and don’t see any issues


    I am facing the same issue too, I tried to deactivate this plugin and everything is working fine but I need to display my pics back. Any help?

    Tried updating the setting and getting this error. CURL error: “Failed to connect to port 443: Connection timed out”.

    Unfortunately sometimes Flickr API are unresponsive.
    I am trying to see if I can cache the images and then don’t connect to Flickr API at all. But if I do so, some people would complain that the images are not immediately showed when they are added to Flickr.

    Where have you been, Miro? We’ve missed you. 😉

    2017 was a bad year. I’m happy to be back; unfortunately Flickr’s API are still quite not reliable. 🙁

    For me it works. Thank you

    Stange phenomenom: I still suffered the problem mentioned above.
    I checked another page of my website using the following functionality

    [flickr_tags tags=””]

    This page worked!

    Then I revisited my portfolio-pages using

    [flickr_set id=””]

    Miracle: they worked again.

    Problem solved. But the miracle remains…

    Hi there @miromannino,

    Thanks for responding to this thread and sorry to hear that 2017 wasn’t a great year for you. If it helps at all – it wasn’t for me either 🙂

    Have you, by any chance, had a chance to take a look at this?

    I’m still experiencing, what I believe to be, a problem with showing flickr_set id=””.

    Hope to hear from you and many thanks!

    I experienced the same problem.

    According to me it is because WordPress somehow updated the Javascript-handling,
    in such a way that the code of the Flickr Justified Gallery plugin is not compatible

    The solution I found was to include a seperate jQuery library (which I found
    in another plugin I use).

    Best wishes, Chris

    Hi there @miromannino,

    Just wondering if this is something you’re planning to look into fixing or if I, or those of us experiencing this problem, should start to look for an alternative Flickr plugin?

    Sorry to be a pain – I am aware that this is a free plugin and I would contribute with a solution myself if only I had the skills!

    Many thanks!

    Hi again @miromannino,

    So sorry to follow up on this again, but I’ll have to find another Flickr solution now unless if we find a way to fix this issue asap – and I’d much prefer to keep using your great plugin if at all possible! 🙂



    Perhaps—if you are going to look into this—you could use it as an opportunity to put this plugin on GitHub as well – if that’s something you’d be interested in as a way of letting the whole of the WP community help you keep it up to date? Just a thought…

    Hello, jQuery library include is fine, unless you have some other plugin or the theme itself that mess up with it. I tried all WP version and with my theme as well as other standard ones.

    Did you check by changing the theme or deactivating other plugins?

    Putting in Github is a good thing, but I would discourage to pull fixes that are made only for a specific theme or plugin side effect.


    Hi @miromannino,

    Many thanks for your reply!

    That feedback was exactly what I needed and it spurred me on to explore the problem in more detail. I found out that it was caused by Better WordPress Minify and the problem disappeared when I excluded ‘flickrJustifiedGalleryWPPlugin.js’ and ‘jquery.justifiedGallery.min.js’ from being minified.

    Thanks for your help!

    PS. I hope that you’ll still consider putting the plugin on GitHub and linking to it from the plugin page here on I think it’s absolutely fine to discourage pull fixes that are made only for a specific theme or plugin side effect.
