Issues Encountered when Running Slickr Flickr
This section contains reports of issues associated with Slickr Flickr itself, the interaction of Slickr Flickr with other plugins or problems arising due to the interaction of Slickr Flickr with the theme.
The following table may help with diagnosing problems
|Broken Image Links||Website is running PHP 4||Upgrade your website to PHP 5||Broken Links Example|
|Photos missing||Flickr has not made photo public yet||Follow the checks at the more link, clear RSS cache, wait until Flickr is ready to serve your photo - it will turn up eventually even if you do nothing||Missing Photos Example|
|Badly formatted gallery||Theme CSS is overriding the Slickr Flickr plugin CSS||Add more specific elements to the theme css to suppress the theme's default formatting (e.g If the theme places bullets before all list then you would add an element with .slickrflickr-gallery in the element path that did not include bullets||CSS Example|
