    Anyone else having a problem with jquery and Slickr Flickr? When I enable the plugin my slideshow rotators and drop down menus don’t function properly.

  • Why don’t you contact the developer of Slickr Flickr as he is the best person to answer this question.

    Unfortunately he only takes support questions for paid users now. And I’d be happy to pay but he has it set up as a monthly fee instead of a onetime payment.

    He is introducing a one time payment tomorrow – there will be the option for an annual payment and a monthly one.

    But just so you know, if it is Slickr Flickr’s fault he’ll fix the issue even if you are not PRO – so feel free to contact him if you think it’s Slickr Flickr that is causing your problem.

    I’m his wife by the way.

    That said – it is unlikely to be Slickr Flickr.

    Slickr Flickr uses jQuery without any problems.

    You may have a Javascript error on your site perhaps caused by either
    – multiple versions of jQuery being loaded
    – jQuery loading too late
    – jQuery conflicting with whatever library your slider is using
    – your slider not being compatible with other plugins that use jQuery
    – your theme not implementing all the standard wordPress hooks (specifically wp_footer)



    Thanks for the quick responses. I will check those items powerblogservice.

    marltutski, that’s great news. Hopefully I can be your first annually paying customer. thanks!


    I noticed there is till no one time paying option today.

    Do you know if he is going to release it tomorrow?

    Thank you.

    We had an unexpected rush of client work yesterday and this put us behind. Russell is working on the extra payment options today and if all goes well you’ll see it soon. I hope it will be later today but if the extra work keeps coming at us, it will be delayed a bit more.

    No problem just curious. I’ll check the site daily.

    Please try upgrading to 1.28 – this may fix your problem as I have changed the default behaviour to load Javascript in the header.

    You can load javascript in the footer but only using by setting an option in Slickr Flickr Admin settings.

    If that fails you can always sign up for Slickr Flickr Pro to get support

    In the next 30 minutes I will add the buttons for annual subscription and one-time lifetime subscription.

    Thanks Russell the update worked like a charm! The lightbox doesn’t appear to work on the site I have the plugin on but that shouldn’t be a problem.

    We check soon for the one time fee option.

    Thanks again for the great and quick support.

    What lightbox are you using?

    With Slickr Flickr you can use the bundled lightbox, thickbox which comes installed with WordPress, or it can work with any of half a dozen lightboxes that are installed separately – all you need to do is tell Slickr Flickr which one you are using in Slickr Flickr Admin settings by selecting the “LightBox option”.

    Slickr Flickr 1.28 is compatible with ThickBox, ShadowBox, SlimBox, LightBox Plus, Evolution LIghtBox, FancyBox and Pretty Photo as described in my post onusing Slickr Flickr with other lightboxes.

    I will be adding integration with HighSlide in the next release.


    I installed a different lightbox (forgot the name) and it worked like a charm.

    Thanks for the help, great plugin you’ve written.
