Flickr Galleries


Flickr Galleries can be viewed by the short-code usage:

[gallery type='flickr' view='galleries']

The above displays all Galleries for the user. It does the following:

  1. Displays thumbnails of each of the Galleries for the user, with options to turn off the title and photo-count display.
  2. Each Gallery’s thumbnail can be clicked to launch a slideshow for that Gallery.

The following is an example displaying all of Harald Müller’s Galleries:

With a simple tweak of the short-code invocation you can make this display a single Gallery:

[gallery type='flickr' user_id='abc' gallery_id='xyz']

You can see the usage here, where I have displayed a Gallery from Harald:

  • German Sunday 006
  • German Sunday 005
  • German Sunday 004
  • German Sunday 003
  • German Sunday 002
  • German Sunday 001

Note that Flickr’s gallery implementation has a quirk, which makes it mandatory for you to put in the User Id if you want to view a single gallery.
