How do I get my Carousel to display pictures from Flickr>

Recommended Posts

bailey1769

Maybe I am just forum illiterate but I cannot figure out how to set up my carousel page. The SUpport pages just says to read "Read Flickr set-up..." but I cannot find that article at all. Am I supposed to add a plugin? So confused.... Thanks!

Matthew, You're exactly right. The carousel flickr mode requires the FlickRSS plug-in. Once it is downloaded you can configure the plug-in settings e.g. your account # etc.

Did you accidentally turn the plug-in off, or change the carousel mode on that page? I know this working before, right?

It was working, but we were pulling in our own images. BTW, BE FOREWARNED, THIS WAS BOGGING DOWN THE WEBSITE. I would highly suggest in looking for another option, than importation of media images within that plugin. Really killed the speed of my website, etc. NPF

Did you try the next-gen mode to see if that was faster since it doesn't have to pull anything from Flickr? Also, I believe there is an option to cache the images in the Flickr Settings.

Oh I thought you were using Flickr bc the title of this thread mentions a problem with it, not with NextGen. You have another page that is working with the carousel, what did you do differently on that page? What mode is it? For NextGen galleries remember you have to choose a gallery ID
