Flickr Slide Shows

I am experimenting with making photo shows from my flickr archive, for my wordpress blogs. . I originally used and have today looked at as the flickrslideshow was failing strangely. In June 2020, I decided I need to explore the plugin route also.

The embedding widget renders on the phone, bother!

And flash has gone, flickr changed ownership, the embed site seems broken so I have now installed “Responsive flickr slide show” plugin, let’s see what happens?

Here is the complete photo collection, in reverse data order!

Using the plugin

I can’t imagine why I haven’t used this before, it’s very easy.

Using slide show

The flickr slide show, once working code is still held in CODE1 custom field, perhaps I need to install flash now that I am using Firefox, on the other hand, Flickr have deprecated this solution.

Using embed

Here it is, from ….

The code generated needs some small tweaks. It generates the following style comment,

<iframe style=”position: relative; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%”  src=”…

It needs

<iframe style=”position: relative; top: 0; left: 0;”
width=”600″ height=”500″ src=”….

This still ain’t quite right, I need to get the height right or auto’d.

The generated code works in a naked HTML file, it’s something to do with outer level CSS statements. (I think.)


For wordpress, I might need to use Plugins.
