    Hi donncha,
    thanks a lot for that great flickr widget. I have one (simple?) problem: I use this widget with my favorite theme tiga 1.0.1 from, and it works fine with firefox, but when I use IE 6.0, the displayed flickr photo box is overlapping the centre blog space. Do you have any suggestion how to fix it?
    Thanks for your help!

  4. Hey donncha, thanks for the widget, I’ve had fun playing with it!

    was able to upload and activate and there’s the alcatraz prisoner, but where is the menu for it or ways to adjust display? basically, need clue on how to set prefs once it is installed.

    I am loving this widget! Cheers for your effort. One thing I would like to do however is get the photos to display randomly. I don’t add photos often so my latest photos sit there for some time. Is there a way to display random photos with this plugin?
    Thanks again for one of the best little widgies I’ve seen.

    great plugin (!), but is there a way to just show the squares rather than slightly larger and irregularly sized thumbnails?

    The 0.1 code appears to be missing check for ‘register_sidebar_widget’ before executing the function.
    If the Flickr Widget is activated before “Sidebar Widgets” the results are a blank screen that the admin must intervene by disabling the Flickr Widget to correct.
    I corrected this behavior by adding the following code to the top of the flickr_widget.php

    if ( !function_exists(‘register_sidebar_widget’) )

    This is the same code that appears at the top of the gsearch.php widget.

  29. I think it would be very relevant to mention a plugin I created and recently released. The plugin makes the life of bloggers easier for them by allowing searching images . It not only allows them to search images in their own database, but also on flickr.

    I would appreciate if you have a look, try it, give me feed back and best of all link to it.

    Here is the address of the plugin page

    Here is the address about some details on this plugin as to why this would be so important for many bloggers like you.
