WordPress Flickr Manager plugin v1.1

At long last! If you’ve been waiting on the edge of your seat for the release of WordPress Flickr Manager 1.1, your week long journey is finally at an end. With this latest arrival, I added a few bells and whistles which have made my ‘Flickring’ and blogging all the easier, such as the new ‘Flickr Manager’ panel that appears now just below the tinyMCE editor in your administration panel. This new addition is feature packed, it allows for drag-drop image insertion into your posts, as well as a new and improved upload form.

The browse panel allows for filtering of images through the use of a tag search, as well as the selection of the various image sizes that Flickr have to offer (remember you can still customize the size of the image from within tinyMCE). The time where you would have to leave your post, go to Flickr and copy the code for your image is at an end. Now it’s as simple as drag and drop. This brings me to the next tab on the panel, the shiny new upload form.

Flickr Upload Panel

From here I can upload new images, including various meta details such as the title, tags, and the description. It’s now all strapped together with AJAX style functionality so you’ll never have to leave your post for anything.

The files are available in zip and tar.gz.

    Hi there! I was hoping to get this plugin to work since it’s JUST what I need but when clicking “upload photo” or “browse photos” I get stuck at the loading screen. Nothing happens after that.

    I’ve authenticated my account already and I’m not getting any error messages.

    Any idea what might be wrong?

    Thanks in advance! =)

    It’s stuck on ‘loading’ when clicking ‘browse’ or ‘upload’.
    Using WordPress 2.3.1

    Mine gets stuck on the loading screen too. I would love to use this plugin too, it looks very promising.

    Hi Anna,
    Which copy did you download? The one off my site? or from the WordPress.org extend page?
    The extend page is more recent. If you still get the problem let me know with some specifics and I’ll try tracking down the error.

    You can should still be able to still be able to upload, edit and insert images using the ‘Manage->Flickr’ Page.

    Barry, Dalton same question. Did you get the copy from my site or the extend page?

    Edit: I just released a 1.1.2 on the wordpress extend page, in which I’ve converted all AJAX requests to use the prototype library, that should have fixed any issues you were having.

    Hi Trent,
    I am trying 1.1.2, downloaded from the extend page, and still having the same problem. I thought it might be an incompatibility with another plugin, but I disabled all plugins and still have the problem with WordPress Flickr Manager.

  6. Trent Gardner says:

    OK well good news, I’ve managed to duplicate your problem and it seems to be only an issue when using IE. I’m writing another patch with a few more bug fixes today.

    EDIT: Please see this post as it relates to the issues you’ve been having. You can download the updated fix from here.

    Hi Trent,
    Thanks, I will give the new version a try and let you know. I guess I should have mentioned my platform – I’m using the latest version of Firefox on a Mac.

    Thanks again.

    I downloaded this to try out and managed to authenticate, etc. When I went to edit post,I get to the manage post page and then when I pick a post to edit, all I got was a blank screen and nothing else will load. I had to delete the plugin in to make the post show up again.

    I am on IE7.



  10. madge,
    Version 1.1 is extremely deprecated, try using a more up to date version from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-flickr-manager/

  11. Hi Trent, it installed perfectly and seems to be working. However, I’m not able to set different sizes for lightbox. I see the dropdown but it doesn’t seem to have an effect. Suggestions? Thanks … Koset

    This is a great plugin but I can’t get it to do one thing (maybe it doesn’t!). When I upload a photo I want to be able to add it to an existing gallery (set) or indeed create a gallery (set) and add it to that. How do I do this?
