Go to my profile to see Flickrizer in action. Go to your profile and edit your personal information to add your own Flickr photostream feed. You'll also notice the HideSuccess extension in action when you save your personal information. Here they are in the addons directory: Flickrizer Beta: http://lussumo.com/addons/index.php?PostBackAction=AddOn&AddOnID=43 Hide Success: http://lussumo.com/addons/index.php?PostBackAction=AddOn&AddOnID=44

    I hate to bash your extension mark, but I just have a few comments about that flickr feeds addon. Firstly, don't you think it'd be easier if people only had to enter their user id, instead of the entire feed url plus the format GET variable setting the feed type to RSS2? I don't mean to sound condescending, but I'm not sure everyone using it would know what the flickr feed url was, and that it needs to be in rss2 format.

    And secondly, would it perhaps be a good idea if you added a cache system to that (hence why I suggested MagpieRSS)? If this extension becomes more widely-used, there's a good chance numerous people won't update their flickr feed as often as their profile is viewed. If a server-side cache system isn't implemented, such situations could very well lead to longer-than-necessary load times and excess use of flickr's bandwidth.

    And on the topic of caching, perhaps it'd be a good idea to allow caching of your own RSS/Atom feeds. A lot of feed readers check feeds as often as once every five minutes, and without some form of caching you're going to use up a lot of excess bandwidth. This site has some good info on it: http://annevankesteren.nl/2005/05/http-304.

    1. It is beta - I say so on the addon page 2. Magpie rss doesn't support single-tag elements (ie. <tag />) so it won't work (I tried) 3. I know it should cache, and again, I say so on the add-on page. 4. Write your own!

    I will say that's a good idea about using the flickr username. I didn't realize you could do that. I just copied my flickr rss feed from my main photo page...

    It fits in there nicely. I have lots of lovely Radiohead gig pictures there now.

    Just fyi mark, i think sirnot was talking about the RSS feeds *from* this site in #3.

    thx mini - I realize that it might be a problem that the vanilla rss & atom feeds aren't cached, but they are extensions. If I can get out of contracting work and do Lussumo full time *fingers crossed*, I'll have more time for perfecting add-ons like that...

    What about a global flick page that showed all members icons, and their most recent photo?

    I think we should wait a bit and see if SirNot is so displeased with my extension that he makes a caching version. Then we can hijack his code and make our own versions to do whatever we want :)

    lol, I wasn't displeased with your extension, I was just pointing out how it could be improved. But if you want I could give it a try :-P

    I'm afraid I wasn't able to fully test this, as my test/server computer isn't connected up to the internet, but it should work: http://sirnot.googlepages.com/FlickrFeed.zip . As long as either a) there's a folder named cache within the FlickrFeed dir that is writable by rss_cache.inc, or b) rss_cache.inc is able to create a writable folder within it's directory, everything should run smoothly. (hope you don't mind mark, but I borrowed your styling) EDIT: Dang, already found a bug. Fixed now.

    Not at all, dude. You should upload this to the addons site, tho :)

    Mark - is there any way to limit the number of photos shown in the feed? It shows around 20 at this time, which takes up a bit of room. Thanks.

    Change line 48 in extensions/Flickrizer/default.php from:

    $ImageCount = count($Images);

    to

    $ImageCount = count($Images); $DisplayCount = 10; if ($ImageCount > $DisplayCount) $ImageCount = $DisplayCount;

    That should do it.

    Odd...Now all the pictures have disappeared. I have uninstalled/reinstalled the extension, but it still not working with that new code. Works fine when I take that bit back out and replace it with the original. But the new hack doesn't work.

    Well, I never tested it myself. But I don't know why that wouldn't work...
