The Flickr Thumbnail Photostream WordPress plugin makes including and linking to photos on a Flickr account simple and flexible. The links come in the form of thumbnail images that link to their larger, normal formats within the Flickr website. The advantage of this plugin is that it does not use RSS feeds and uses the Flickr API instead.
This plugin requires cURL PHP library to be installed.
The plugin has been tested with WordPress 2.3.3 and 2.5.1
Please download the zip file (171.3 KB) from the WordPress plugin site
Please Note: If you are upgrading from version 1.0 or 1.0.1 to version 1.1 then you will need to deactivate and re-activate the plugin. This is to ensure that some of the new features will be fully initialised.
All the main functions of control such as connecting to a Flickr account and storing information on the photo thumbnails, can be achieved through the "Flickr Control" front-end GUI in the WordPress admin panel. Any changes in current Flickr photo information/status can be immediately updated by clicking on the "Update Photos" button.
Running the relevent Flickr API function calls can sometimes take between 2 & 3 minutes to fully execute. All information is stored in a data cache held locally, so that it minimise the chance of performance loss on web pages. The cached data can store up to 500 images at a time.
If users wish to have regular/automatic updates of their photo information and status, then that is achievable through creating a crontab entry, or similar automation mechanism, to execute the supplied runScript.php file.
A CSS file is supplied to provide a starting point for displaying the thumbnails, but changes can be made to suit individual preference.
