WordPress and Flickr


Flickr Photo Album for WordPress:

This Flickr plugin for WordPress will allow you to pull in your Flickr photosets and display them as albums on your WordPress site. There is a pretty simple template provided, but you can customize the templates 100% to match the look and feel of your own site. And if you want, you could also hook it up with Lightbox or any other number of display libraries.

On the backend, this plugin will also add a new Flickr icon to your WordPress edit screen which will allow you to easily insert your Flickr photos into your blog posts with just a couple clicks. You can either have your inserted photos link back to your WordPress Flickr photo album or directly to your Flickr.com photo page.

Click on a photo, select a size, and a HTML snippet for that photo will appear in the post’s textarea. Cool!If you’re using WordPress 2.3 or older, then you should a new “Photos” tab next to your uploading tabs.

Photo Album Customization:

  1. All the templates are located inside a “templates” folder inside the tantan-flickr directory.
  2. If you just want to customize one particular template, just copy that template into your current theme directory
  3. To completely customize the look and feel, copy all these template files (they all start with photoalbum-) into your current theme directory and modify as necessary.
  4. Modify the HTML and CSS in the template files to fit your own site. All the CSS is referenced from the template file photoalbum-header.html
