    I’ve just acquired your plugin–very quick and easy to set up, well done.

    I want to use it to display a group of Flickr thumbnails in a sidebar widget. I’m already doing this with another (problematic) Flickr plugin. You can see here what I’m trying to achieve:

    From Flickr-stream, I’m getting almost what I want, which is a horizontal row of 4 thumbnails. Now I want to format them in a 2 X 2 grid, either by embedding them in an HTML table (easiest for me) or CSS positioning.

    Can you give me a general idea of how I might go about this? I see there are some classes in the HTML output that I can use as hooks, and I can probably work something out, but I thought I’d write in case you have any better ideas.

    TIA for any help,

    OK, I’ve made some progress on my own.

    I found the style sheet that controls the display of thumbnails:

    /plugins/flickr-stream/css/front_style.css

    and I’ve achieved most of what I want by adjusting that.

    This raises a supplementary question:

    if I modify the CSS in that file, will my changes be overwritten when/if the plugin updates?

    Thanks.

    Sorry for the lateness, yes when the plugin is updated it will overwrite your changes to the css file. You could either back it up and copy over the new one after updates or sort of merge the two files together manually.
