WordPress Flickr – embed Flickr photos in WordPress blog


Maybe I’m just slow, but it took me a long time to figure out how to do some neat stuff with my Flickr pix and my WordPress hosted blog.

To embed your own Flickr photos in your WordPress blog you’ll need to first add the Flickr Widget by going to the WordPress Dashboard and selecting presentation, then sidebar widgets. Then, you click on the right side of the Flickr Widget, which opens up a dialog window, and you add your Flickr RSS feed. To get the RSS feed DO NOT log into Flickr, rather stay logged OUT and visit your own pix. The RSS feed will be located on that page. Note that your feed does NOT show up on Flickr when you are logged in (at least I could not find it and it, confusing the heck out of me for the first time in the otherwise amazingly intuitive Flickr).

    Personally, I have no idea why people would not understand how to do this.

    I have a Typepad blog and a WP blog I just started. I am fairly new to WP, so it is taking me a bit to learn the ins and outs of it all. I am a bit disappointed that with all the versatility of WP that I can’t just add a photo from my own computer into a post. I have to fiddle around with uploading photos somewhere else and then adding a bunch of size and location to the photo insert box before I can get the finished post ready to show to the public. Bleah to that! It IS entirely possible though that I just have not understood that there is a better way??

    Can someone tell me what “the” flickr widget is, and where I can get it. I’ve searched all around, and keep ending up on this page:
    http://wordpress.com/blog/2006/04/14/get-your-flickr-widget-here/

    This page doesn’t have a link to a plugin file. (I installed WordPress middle of November 2007.)

    Any help appreciated!

    dbk:

    Did you read the post above?

    Go to your control panel and click on Presentation.

    Click on “Sidebar Widgets”.

    Drag and drop the widget into your sidebar.

    Copy and paste the URL of your Flickr RSS feed.

    Hey, if you are into contests there is a great contest on YouTube for Valentines Day. The contest is to create a video for the holiday. Actually its two contests, one is to make a video talking about your great love and the second is to actually do an online video proposal called “Will You Marry Me?” Here’s the URL http://www.youtube.com/greatestlovestories?cm_cid=twb8. If you have a last minute entry great, otherwise check out the contest winners next week.

    Thanks!

  14. Ah right, I didn’t know that. Embedding Flickr photos by first adding the Flickr Widget. I see, said the blind man holding up his wooden leg. Thanks.

    For the one interested in wordpress plugin around Flickr, I created one to display a flickr gallery on a page of a wordpress blog. You can see the plugin here : sleidan44.free.fr/ and a demo here : sleidan44.free.fr/wordpress/?page_id=30.

    I’ve been struggling with this a few days now – I have no problem getting the widget up and running but I can’t link my Flickr page no matter what I do. My wordpress blog flickr window just says ‘more photos’ and of course it is blank. What am I doing wrong?

  18. JoeDuck says:

    Patch did you find your Flickr feed?

  19. patchworkmaniac says:

    well that’s just it I’ve used several things I think are ‘it’ but nothing seems to work. I’m getting frustrated now and just keep clicking on anything that might be ‘it’.

  20. patchworkmaniac says:

    and I take it I don’t actually want to subscribe to my own flickr page do I?

  21. JoeDuck says:

    Try logging OUT of Flickr, then go to your flickr.com/photos/patchworkmaniac page, click on your own feed, and that’s the RSS you need for the WP widget.

  22. patchworkmaniac says:

    thanks I’ll try that. I’m just frustrated now I’ve tried sorting this out when I’m logged in and out of Flickr and even tried the Flickr mosaic creator thing which produces it’s own url and I still can’t get it sorted. May be I’m just too much of a noob and should just switch to Blogger lol. Thanks for promp assistance.

  23. patchworkmaniac says:

    I cannot find any reference to my RSS feed at the bottom of my flickr page. The only thing at the bottom is in regard to subscribing to the photostream eg Latest, Geofeed or KML. When you click on the RSS feed icon it merely asks if you want to subscribe to the feed and displays all your images down the page. I still don’t see it. I’ve tried using the URL from the top but that’s not right either.

  24. patchworkmaniac says:

    Well it appears there must have been something wrong with Flickr because I just carried out exactly the same steps as I tried to yesterday and now it is working perfectly. Once again thanks for your patience and assistance. Apparently computers are supposed to be the most frustrating things on the planet and I certainly agree with that.

  25. We have launched a unique widget that lets you surf through your entire photostream within the embed. Its really easy to use and can handle flickr, picasa, facebook and photobucket pics too!

    I want to see more posts. Make a nice change.

    Very interesting post! :)

  28. slapphappe says:

    You could, alternatively, just insert an img src tag into your WordPress post by looking for it in the source behind the Flickr page. Easier than it sounds, more fully described here http://slapphappe.wordpress.com/2011/09/14/how-to-embed-a-flickr-photo-into-your-hosted-wordpress-blog/

  29. Well, it looks like I am slow too :) But I cannot link my Flickr page to WordPress. Maybe I should try a different browser.

A bank in Michigan had a large vignette on its notes representing a panther, which animal is familiarly called there a Wild-cat. This bank failed, having a large amount of its notes in circulation, which notes were afterwards denominated Wild-cat money, and the bank issPrada Outletuing them the Wild-cat bank. jordan retro 13 http://www.google.com.py/webmasters/tools/richsnippets?url=run2013.org/ceshi10.html

    Be happy and accept the way you are, and you shine through to others. All the men I know don like skinny women. Hiking shoes come with different ankle support designs to best match the type of hiking. For example, high-cut hiking shoes work best for hiking with a heavy pack and provide extra ankle stability over rough terrain. jordan 13 http://www.google.bi/webmasters/tools/richsnippets?url=run2013.org/ceshi12.html

    to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will share
    this site with my Facebook group. Talk soon!

  36. Hello There. I found your blog using msn. This is an extremely well written article.
