It later turned out that the fix to the broken link issue was to the website upgrade from PHP 4 to PHP 5
1.16 worked perfectly, an excellent little plugin!
Upgraded to 1.18 and ended up with broken links to pictures. Cleared the cache and tried to change the style but to no avail.
Changed back to 1.16 and it all worked fine again.
I released Slickr Flickr 1.19 today with a couple of bug fixes so this might address the issue of the missing photos.
Please let me know the URL of your page, your Flickr ID and specific slickr-flickr command you used and I will try and reproduce the problem with 1.19.
BTW I have had seen some broken links in the last week just trying to view photos directly on Flickr so the problem might not be plugin related – see the recent comments on the How To Use Slickr Flickr Admin Settings page
Cheers for getting back so quickly. I have tried 1.19 and have the same problem. To be honest 1.16 works so well on my site I don’t really need to update it.
Here are my details.
http://www.sussex-webbs.co.uk/?page_id=212 : Flickr ID 41077589@N08 : slickr-flickr tag=”Webb”
slickr-flickr id="41077589@N08" tag="Webb" type="gallery"
At the time of writing this shows three photos which is the same as your URL above and also the same number as I see on your Flickr tag page – a screenshot is below
Well, it is working for me with Slickr Flickr Version 1.19 so I don’t think the plugin is broken.
Slickr Flickr gets the photo URLs from Flickr in the same way for 1.16 as it does in the current version. I can think of a few possibilities as why the same gallery works for me but not for you:
- You are running an earlier version jQuery 1.3.2 library which is bundled with WordPress 2.9 rather than the latest version 1.4.2 which is bundled with WordPress 3.0 – therefore when you decide to upgrade to WordPress 3.0 the problem may just go away
- The clearing of the RSS cache is not working properly – maybe due to non standard naming of tables in your WordPress database – how were you clearing your cache
I appreciate you no doubt have more interesting things to do on a Sunday morning and since it is working with 1.16 you may be happy to leave things as they are.
However, if you do want to try and get to the bottom of the conundrum, then please upgrade to Slickr Flickr 1.19. And, if you were planning on doing this anyway, you may want to upgrade to WordPress 3.0.3 too. Please comment below if you do decide to try 1.19 again. Thanks. Russell
