    Hi Patty,

    To try and work out what is going on, could you please go to this page:

    http://www.flickr.com/services/api/explore/flickr.people.findByUsername,

    enter your username in the ‘value’ field of the table, click the ‘call method’ button and tell us what appears in the bottom frame.

    Many thanks.

    Hi Dourou,

    Thanks for responding (and I apologize for my frustration earlier). I did that. (I kept “Sign call as … with full permissions” checked).

    Here’s the result:

    <?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″ ?>
    <rsp stat=”fail”>
    <err code=”1″ msg=”User not found” />
    </rsp>

    Thanks for checking,
    Best,
    Patty

    Hi Patty,

    OK, your username is not recognized by Flickr itself, which is very odd.

    Can you maybe post a comment on the Flickr forum explaining what you did at the previous step? Thanks.

    To post a question on the Flickr forum (not as easy as it should be!!), go to http://www.flickr.com/help/with/other/ and click ‘new question in the forum’ in the sentence below the drop down box.

    Also, if you want, can you send me your username at marie at majweb dot co dot uk? Just in case it gives me new insights.

    If you do get more info from the Flickr community, could you please let us know?

    Many thanks!

    Hi there,

    I was having the same problem, you need to go into your privacy settings:
    http://flickr.com/account/prefs/privacy/
    If you are too private, it even hides you from your api.

    Great plugin by the way!

    Wow! Many thanks, Sean!

    I was not aware of that at all!!! That’ll be added to the plugin FAQ asap.

    Thanks again 🙂

    No doubt that was my problem, and I can’t believe I didn’t think of it. I’ll get my settings straight and then try again. Thank you both!

    Patty
