Flickr Slide Shows

This page documents my use of widgets, HTML and plugins to display flickr slide shows on my blogs. AS at August 2021, I am using wordpress plugins or wordpress now support flickr URLs with a native embed. Now I just have paste the URL. Here are my notes, developed over time. …
Here is my complete collection, in data order, so last is best.
I am experimenting with making photo shows from my flickr archive, for my wordpress blogs.  . I originally used and then looked at as the flickrslideshow was failing strangely. In June 2020, I decided I need to explore the plugin route also. This route was complicated by the deprecation of flash, and flickr changed ownership. The embed site seems broken and so I have now installed “Responsive flickr slide show” plugin, let’s see what happens? 😁

Using the plugin


I can’t imagine why I haven’t used this before, it’s very easy.

This has been installed on the wiki and blog; on the blog just paste the set URL into a block. WordPress takes care of the rest.

Using slide show

The flickr slide show, once working code is still held in CODE1 custom field, perhaps I need to install flash now that I am using Firefox, on the other hand, Flickr have deprecated this solution.

Using embed

Here it is, from ….
The code generated needs some small tweaks. It generates the following style comment,
<iframe style=”position: relative; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%”  src=”…
It needs
<iframe style=”position: relative; top: 0; left: 0;”
width=”600″ height=”500″ src=”….
This still ain’t quite right, I need to get the height right or auto’d.
The generated code works in a naked HTML file, it’s something to do with outer level CSS statements. (I think.)


For wordpress, I might need to use Plugins.
There are more.

    I tweaked the page as even I got confused, TLDR, just past the URL into the post page as the first object in a line. I also added the hooray gif, there's plenty more where that came from.
