Coda published a post a couple days ago about some php functions that interface with Flickr. Basically, what that means in English is: some code that allows you to view your Flickr photos on your blog, without having to visit the Flickr site.
I was pretty lost after visiting the links he prescribed. I’m defintely no php guru, I leave that kind of work to the developers. “Functions” and “Includes” are a foreign language to me.
Instead of giving up right there and then, I looked for an easier way of intergrating Flickr and WordPress. Then I found FAlbum, a plugin that did exactly what I wanted. Without any coding. It was an easy to install, pretty self explanatory, free piece of open source code.
Check out my WordPress/Flickr page now. I still have to customize the CSS a little, but I’m very happy with the functionality.
