Flickr Slide Shows

I am experimenting with making photo shows from my flickr archive, for my wordpress blogs. . I originally used flickrslideshow.com and have today looked at https://flickrembed.com 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 https://flickrembed.com/ ….

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.)

Plugins

For wordpress, I might need to use Plugins.
