FlickrViewer update

Just a quick note to say thanks to the people who are using FlickrViewer, and who are providing me with useful feedback.

I’m going to try and get a release out soon to add a few enhancements:

  • Ability to turn off caching for people who are unable to create cache files
  • Extra diagnostic information when errors are encountered to help when solving problems
  • Ability to turn off link to flickr photo page

I’ll be looking at adding the ability to display multiple flickr albums to a future version of FlickrViewer too, but this is lower priority than the above points.

I’m also looking at doing a ‘lite’ version. This will allow you to generate an XML config file (imageData.xml) based on a Flickr album, but once done this will be static. This will be useful for people with crippled PHP web hosts.

    Great work here Mark. I’ve been a fan of SimpleViewer for a long time, and an avid Flickr user - this is a much needed combination of the two! Is there any way to organize this by username and tag, and not just set? That would certainly expand the usability here. Thanks for creating this!

    Thanks for the suggestions Joey. At the moment the answer is no (although you just need to alter the Flickr API request URL if you fancy a hack), but I’ll certainly see what I can do with future releases. At the moment I’m rather bogged down with other stuff, so don’t hold your breath!
