WordPress Flickr Manager now with Lightbox Support

It’s a bit of a rushed release because I’m pretty busy at the moment, so I didn’t have time to test it as much as I would have liked. I introduced a couple new features to Flickr Manager in this release, the main one being optional Lightbox support. You’ll notice now on the “Browse Photos” tab an added “Insert with lightbox support” check box. When this is selected, the inserted image will display the Medium Flickr sized copy of the photo in the Lightbox window. This means if you insert a square, thumbnail or small image it will display a larger version when viewing the Lightbox image. It also allows you to specify which images load with Lightbox and which don’t. For Example:

WordPress Flickr Manager v1.4.0b Browse Panel
CLICK ME! I do stuff.

WordPress Flickr Manager v1.4.0b Browse Panel
I’m boring and just take you to Flickr

Also another feature I added was if you don’t have cURL installed on your web host it will now use fopen instead.
NOTE: File uploads to Flickr won’t work unless you have cURL installed. So if everything is working except uploads, you must install cURL!

Like I said earlier, I didn’t have as much time as I would have liked to test this so I’m releasing it as a beta. If you find any errors, please let me know. Thanks.
