...I've been trying to add a slideshow page to my Blog and can I figure it out? :pc:

In theory, it looks like it should be simple enough - I added the slideshow page element, told it to use Flickr as the source but I cant figure out the bit that wants either a Keyword or a User name? - I tried putting my Flickr username in the relevant box (with & without the @yahoo.com extension) but when I save it & preview my Blog, its showing some other dude's photos :confused:

Help me please, I is confused!
Thank you!

Ok...STOP THE CLOCK!...hold the phone...after much (MUCH) hunting, I've found out how to add my Flickr photos to my Blog on a slideshow!

Please visit me & see what you think!

...turns out the Flicker user ID is NOTHING like what you sign in with...you need to sign into Flickr then find this strange little page http://www.flickr.com/services/api/explore/?method=flickr.people.findByUsername

and it tells you the user ID you need to use - mine was a whole load of numbers etc

AND IT WORKS! Talk about CHALLENGE SHAZZER! I'm a happy bunny now and if I can help Beadsbydesign get that piggin slideshow set up too, I'm even happier! :mf::mf::mf::mf:
