It’s available at http://support.trentgardner.net


A Launchpad translation project has been setup: Click here to view a list of all currently available translations. Very briefly, Launchpad will enable a community of translators to help translate the plugin into whatever language is needed.

How to translate with Launchpad

  1. Setup a Launchpad.net account.
  2. Select your preferred languages. This will be the language you want to translate.
  3. You should see your language show up in this list. Simply click the name to get started with the translations. The system will try to offer suggests where available (retrieved from other open source projects).
  4. Your translations are saved as you proceed. When it comes time to package a release, your translation will be automatically included in the release for everyone to use. Thanks for your help!

    me again. after I activated the Jetpack in WordPress I just get a big black quarter instead of the thumbnails. So I installed again the 1.5.5 version, that worked well all the time. but still the same problem. thumbnails not in line (1 picture one 1 line) and I can’t pop up them for larger size. I just have a waiting bar that never stops. was also when I had installed the newest version, I forgot the mention above.
    So now everything is buggy and I can’t use any version and have a messed up blog. help!

    thanks in advance :).

    I’m having a problem where I can post flickr sets but when I try and post individual images I just get a black box.
    The shortcode inserts but the result is just this black box.

    Hi, Trent – please help me!

    I have installed 3.0.1 and when trying to “Add media files from (my) computer” (“Upload”), the manager simply loads a blank page.

    I have looked in your bug section and can’t find anything related to my problem.

    Much appreciated

    Hi there. Great plugin but I’ve just upgraded to WP 3.3.1 and it appears that WP Flickr Manager makes calls to (now) deprecated functions (deprecated in WP 3.2). I can view my flickr feed but am unable to upload any images. The deprecated routines called appear to relate to the media library. I get an error message displayed in the uplaod screen of the plugin. I just wondered if you planned on a new release any time soon? I’ve used the plugin for a while since it’s the only one I could find that can upload to flickr.

    I have used the Flickr manager plugin on a few sites and it is a really great plugin. I went to download it today and the download link no longer works and it doesn’t seem to available from WordPress. Has development been discontinued?

  16. Tim says:

    Trent you should charge for this plugin.
    I’d pay $10.

    I get this. It used to work. Latest v of WP.

    npacking the package…

    The package could not be installed. PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature

  17. Chao Ran says:

    Hello Trent,

    I still can’t figure out why you prefer short code rendering than directly using static url of the image from flickr.
    Please feel free to give me some hint!

    The upload feature doesn’t seem to work with the latest versions of WordPress. I get the following Error.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function __deprecated_function() in {bunch o crap}/wp-admin/includes/deprecated.php on line 839

    This plug in is near perfect to what I have been looking for!!

    I had a problem with Flickr Api Key, the plugin was working for two years, and it suddenly stopped and asked me to authenticate. It was because Flickr changed http to https on 27 June 2014
    I have not many knowledges about code but I could find a solution, and it works

    I changed the archive
    Look for:
    var $rest_endpoint = ‘http://api.flickr.com/services/rest/’;
    var $upload_endpoint = ‘http://api.flickr.com/services/upload/’;
    var $replace_endpoint = ‘http://api.flickr.com/services/replace/’;
    You need change to:
    var $rest_endpoint = ‘https://api.flickr.com/services/rest/’;
    var $upload_endpoint = ‘https://api.flickr.com/services/upload/’;
    var $replace_endpoint = ‘https://api.flickr.com/services/replace/’;
    And look for:
    if ( !preg_match(“|http://(.*?)(/.*)|”, $url, $matches) ) {
    You need change to:
    if ( !preg_match(“|https://(.*?)(/.*)|”, $url, $matches) ) {

    After you can go to plugin settings and you need to authenticate again and configure it… but it works again 🙂
