    noticed the dragonforce pic. jason and i saw them and it was everything it should have been.

  • mike f. says:

    dan, how did you get your images to equally space out and fill the image box? I was unable to do that on my site using your plugin… http://ferrulli.com/images

    Hello there, your flickr plugin generate an array error, will u care enough to troubleshoot it because im using it too, thx in advance….

  • Ihad says:

    This shows on your own webpage. What gives?

    Warning: array_merge() [function.array-merge]: Argument #2 is not an array in /home/danco/www/dancoulter.com/wp-content/plugins/flickr-gallery/flickr-gallery.php on line 168

    ^^
    Have the same problem in WP 2.7 with latest plugin version 0.3.0.

    • Dan says:

      Thanks to you (and tamacrea) for pointing this out. As I said above, I’ve got it fixed now. I don’t know how I fixed missed that bug.

  • Ihad says:

    Woohoo. Great stuff. Thanks a bunch! Update available? :)

  • Ihad says:

    Awesome. Thanks again!

  • tamacrea says:

    Okay mate, thx a lot now my gallery are up & running again…, good work there….

    Dab, I like the plugin alot, and super quick response to the bug that was there last night. Any way to pull in thumbnails for private photos as well? I’ve been using the Flickr Photo Album plugin just for that reason, but would switch if you can add it as an option. Thanks!

    • Dan says:

      Yeah, actually, I know of a pretty simple way to do this, so I might try that out tonight.

    • Dan says:

      Ok, I’ve set up a way to authenticate, but it might be entirely ideal for your purposes yet, so you’ll want to check it out.

      For anyone who is interested, I’ve just put out version 0.4.0, so check it out and let me know if you have any problems.

      • Chris says:

        Thanks for the quick turnaround. I upgraded and put in my secret key, then I click “Generate” next to “Authentication Token” and it opens Flickr, asks me to approve, I click ok, and that’s it. When I then hit save changes in WP, I’m still not able to view the private photos. Is there some sort of actual string that’s supposed to be being generated somewhere (either in flickr or in the plugin settings) to put in the Auth. Token field?

        When I go back in to the plugin settings page, Authentication Token is blank again (oh, and yes, my flickr settings are set to Desktop).

        Your help on this is much appreciated – thanks!

    I can’t seem to get the lightbox feature to work? I have the lightbox 2 plug-in installed on my WordPress, but when i click the photos they open up my Flickr page instead.

  • Kelsey says:

    Nevermind!! It works now :) thanks

  • Well, I couldn’t get the lightbox effect to work… any tipps? Thanks for the otherwise slick and beautiful plugin!)

    • Dan says:

      I forgot to set the plugin up to turn the lightbox on by default when you upgraded. You’ll need to go into your settings, make sure the box is checked and save it.

      • Alyson says:

        Hi! After having the worst time trying to set up photo galleries I finally found yours and it seems to work great! I only have one problem:the lightbox is checked on in the settings but when you got to the site and click on the photos it just takes you to the flickr account? Any suggestions?

      • Dan says:

        This needs to go in your theme’s header.php file between the <head> tags:

        <?php wp_head(); ?>

      • Julie says:

        Hi,

        I’m also having trouble with the lightbox not turning up, and clicking on the images simply takes me to the flickr photo page.

        I have the setting checked, and the is present between the tag in the header.php file.

        Any ideas? Thanks :)

  • Gosh, *that* was easy…-) – Cheers man, exemplary work, super quick response!

  • Brad says:

    So, I installed the plugin, it is able to pull sample photos on the settings page, but when I put a simple [flickr]…[/flickr] tag in my post it shows up in plain text instead of pulling the photo… I think I am probably missing something stupid… thanks for any tips.

  • Jan Jakobsen says:

    Installed the new version and LOVE it! :) Thanx! :) A small question: When i open the picture (with lightbox) it shows only the image title, and not the description. How can i get the description insted of the title? (or both?)

    • Dan says:

      Jan,

      The description is missing because Flickr does not give a way to get the description for a group of photos. You’d have to make individual calls for the API for each photo which would probably make the script time out.

      I will look at adding an ajax call when the image is loaded to fetch the description for a future version.

  • Alyson says:

    Got it fixed thanks for the quick reply!!!!

  • Jan Jakobsen says:

    Hi Dan! Been testing your gallery, and i’m wery happy with the layout. However.. there is a speed difference with the lightroom versjon u are using, and lightbox 2 plugin

    (Lightbox 2 – 2.0.2 Used to overlay images on the current page. Lightbox JS v2.04 by Lokesh Dhakar. By Giuseppe Argento.)

    “Your” versjon is much slower (BIG difference) than the other Lightbox versjon.

    How can we fix this? Can u use another versjon of lightbox or can u make your faster? Or can u make a options of what versjon we use?
