Here are the written instructions to create a Flickr slideshow or gallery that shows the photos in the order you want.
You use two attributes: “sort” and “direction”. You can sort by title, by date or by description; and the direction can be either “ascending” (the default) or “descending”.
In this example we will use description.
- Upload your photos to Flickr and tag them
- Edit the description of the photos and include numbers at the start of each description. If you have more than 9 pictures then use two digits. e.g 01, 02, 03, etc., in order to preserve the sort order which is really alphabet and not numeric
- Login in as an administrator on your wordpress site
- Edit your Post
- In the content of the post add the slickr-flickr shortcode with type=”slideshow” and remember to specify sort=”description” direction=”ascending”
- View the results
The code you use in your post is:
slickr-flickr tag="Canon PowerShot A1100" type="gallery" sort="description" direction="ascending" flickr_link="on"
The results look like this:
