mw-flickr

A WordPress plugin which adds a simple widget to display some small pictures from a flickr account (random, most interesting, etc.).

It is a modernized version of the defunct Flickr Badge which allowed embedding some small thumbnails in our blogs. However it is not yet feature complete (work-in-progress, contributions welcome).

Description

This plugin aim at providing an integration of Flickr services (Collections, Sets, Groups, Tags, etc.) with-in a WordPress site.

The current features are:

  • Flickr photos widget: a WordPress theme widget than can be added to compatible themes. The widget allows to display in a sidebar photos
    • from a user only for the moment
    • you can select the number of photos, their size
    • you can filter photos by a tag

Note: it is now possible to use 2 different back-ends for the photos widget. Either the legacy Flickr Badge javascript service (which does not seem to be supported by Flickr anymore but it is still working). Or the Flickr API directly, but it does not offer a perfect match to the JS service.

The code is under a free software license: GPLv3 http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-3.0.html

Installation

Please read the file readme.txt which details all installation instructions.

Contributing

Anyone can contribute. Simply clone the Git project and send me a patch, or use GitHub fork and propose a pull request.

Contributions will only be accepted if provided under the same licensing terms as the plugin. It will be assumed that by default any patch or pull request agree to the plugin license terms.

Contributions will be credited accordingly in the next chapter (and in git history of course!).

Credits

The widget code was inspired by the work from YandexBot on 'WP Flickr Widget' (http://www.sooource.net/wordpress-flickr-widget) which was licensed under GPLv2 or later.
