  • A long time ago, I installed this plug-in to show photo posts to Tumblr from Flickr.

    In November 2015, the way that Flickr interacts with Tumblr has changed. (Both Flickr and Tumblr are owned by Yahoo, and have been concerned about reuse of images). Photos from Tumblr now show up a “video”. See https://www.flickr.com/help/forum/en-us/72157660534398877/ .

    On my WordPress blog, I just noticed that the photos weren’t updating from the Tumblr RSS feed. That RSS feed looks ago, so I looked into the plugin settings. Checking the “video” button and setting a width (of 150px) has restored the function.

    Thanks for this plugin. Its resilience to code changes at Tumblr (and Flickr) reflects good design.
