Flickr Set Slideshow - bbcode
Mod Version: 1.00, by hiker (Member) hiker is offline

Not Supported Re-usable Code Translations External Content  

I was very frustrated in my search for an easy bbcode hack for Flickr. I tried the basic iframe but Flickr put a stop to that in a half second.

I'd love to find a way to just copy the entire url and quickly paste it in between the tags, but I've had no such luck in my search across the series of tubes we call the interwebs. If anybody has a solution I would love to have it.

In the meantime, this method is working out pretty decently. Rather than grabbing the whole url of the Flickr Set, you/your members will need to copy the set id, the last numbers in the url.

This is my second mod, the first is my picasaweb hack, posted @15 minutes ago so I hope I'm giving you adequate information.

Title: Flickr Slideshow

Tag: flickr

Replacement:
HTML Code:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Example: [flickr]72157620997452434[/flickr]

Description: Embeds a Flickr Set Slideshow into your post

Use {option}: No

Button Image: (upload my attached "flickr.gif" if you like)

Remove Tag If Empty: Yes

Disable BB Code Within This BB Code: No

Disable Smilies Within This BB Code: No

Disable Word Wrapping Within This BB Code: No

I have a tutorial video for my members and a sample slideshow if you'd like to take a look:

As I said on my picasaweb mod (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=243366)
...I'll have to say NO on the support at this time, I'm still a noob and not that great at problem solving, I'm hoping the community can chime in with any issues.

Thanks.

Weird, I got it working but it's showing other people's photos..

For example I used this set ID between the tags.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/profitt...7624328201052/

The link seems to work fine.

Any thoughts?

are you using that whole url or just the set id of 72157624328201052? It's meant to just use the set id.

Can you show me a link of your example?

oops, I just noticed I had "picasa" in the tag name rather than "flickr". That's fixed now.

Would that happen to be part of your problem?

I have the tag name as flickr. Can you try my set ID on your site as a test? Maybe it's my vbulletin version or something with my flickr account.

The code didn't have the double quotes, does this formatting look right?

<iframe align="center" src="http://www.flickr.com/slideShow/index.gne?group_id="{param}"&user_id="{param}"&set_id="{param}"&text="{param}" frameBorder="0" width="600" height="600" scrolling="no"></iframe>

My email is [email protected] if that is easier, my name is Greg. Thanks for all your help..

Sorry, your set 72157624431376072 is working just fine on my end, it's only showing the 5 photos in the slideshow, the same photos shown here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/profitt...7624431376072/

as for that code, don't add the extra quotes, just copy and paste exactly the code that is listed into your replacement box.
