How to add a Flickr Slideshow

GuildPortal admin site link to original post

This is a method of displaying images on your site using a Flickr slideshow...
  1. Set up an account at Flickr.com
  2. Add your images
  3. Go to the front page and click on "Your Photostream"


  4. Then Click on "Slideshow" in the top right


  5. It'll take you to an image viewer. Start the viewer, then click on the "Share" link in the upper right corner.
  6. In the window that pops up, you will see a link and an Embed HTML code. Copy the Embed HTML and paste it into your Free Form Text/HTML type content box while in <> HTML mode.

    <object width="800" height="450"><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param> <param name="flashvars" value="offsite=true&lang=en-us&page_show_url=%2Fphotos%2F24548802%40N06%2Fsets%2F72157604083181764%2Fshow%2F&page_show_back_url=%2Fphotos%2F24548802%40N06%2Fsets%2F72157604083181764%2F&set_id=72157604083181764&jump_to="></param> <param name="movie" value="http://www.flickr.com/apps/slideshow/show.swf?v=71649"></param> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://www.flickr.com/apps/slideshow/show.swf?v=71649" allowFullScreen="true" flashvars="offsite=true&lang=en-us&page_show_url=%2Fphotos%2F24548802%40N06%2Fsets%2F72157604083181764%2Fshow%2F&page_show_back_url=%2Fphotos%2F24548802%40N06%2Fsets%2F72157604083181764%2F&set_id=72157604083181764&jump_to=" width="800" height="450" wmode="transparent"></embed></object>

  7. You can adjust the height and width of the frame by changing the red numbers above, but making the width smaller than 800px may cover up some elements in the flash viewer.
  8. Then you need to add the text in green (that sets wmode to "transparent") into two places as above. Doing this prevents the embeded window from being above your facebox window or any other popup windows.
  9. Save  and you should get a window like this 


What's nice about using Flickr, it allows you to e-mail images to the site and it will automatically update on your site!

Edit (10/5/2009): Updated to embed the slideshow (the iframe would overlap the facebox popup).

Hello!

I just did this last night and while I can view it fine other people see nothing.

I went to flickr to make sure it was viewable by the public and that didn't fix anything.

So what could I be doing wrong?

Hi Sri Shaman!

I don't see anything. When I went to your Flickr page I got this message:

EntityGuild doesn't have anything available to you.

So I'm guessing it didn't take the set to public view... try logging out of your account and trying to look at the viewer to double check.

Yup, tested. Uploaded a new pic making sure it was set for public and that works fine. That's definitely the issue, thanks for your help.
