Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] vdh_flickr

Seeing a Failed to connect to flickr.com! message over the last two days – thought at first maybe a Flickr server was down but since the error message is persistent, wondering if anyone else had this issue? Its for the Solborg site, the web host may have updated PHP but not sure. Anyone come across this?

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] vdh_flickr

Yep, I’m seeing this as well, on one of my client sites.

Something to with Flickr API Going SSL-Only on June 27th, 2014?

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] vdh_flickr

!!! I had no idea about that, but it must be to do with Flickr API, the connection first went down two days ago on the 27th. Do you know where the API call is within the plugin code? I haven’t been able to source it yet?

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] vdh_flickr

Found it – look for line #931 in the plugin code:

class Flickr {
	var $xmlurl = 'http://www.flickr.com/services/rest/?method=';
	var $xml;

And change the URL to:

class Flickr {
	var $xmlurl = 'https://api.flickr.com/services/rest/?method=';
	var $xml;

Works!

Thankfully an easy fix … I’ll get mine working too.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] vdh_flickr

Adi – quick question if you have any experience with Foundation and/or Masonry

The above mentioned site currently runs Foundation v3 and will be updated in September to F5. On this page which uses an F3 accordion, one of the articles contains a vdh_flickr tag which pull out some images. On page load, the images are stacked which usually means that the Masonry layout is messed up while the images are loading.

imagesLoaded is supposed to fix that, but its patchy on the “BILDER FRA BILDE & FORM” article in the page mentioned

It works fine on other pages, for example the album page.

Something in the accordion maybe throwing this thing off – a second look would be really appreciated because right now I can’t see it!

Er, no, sorry. I can see your problem though … bleurgh!

If it helps … it seems to happen on a normal page visit (even if you click away & come back), but a page refresh sorts it out.

Did a quick Google for “masonry imagesLoaded flickr” and I don’t think you’re suffering alone: are these any good?

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] vdh_flickr

Its driving me crazy! Why it works just fine outside of an accordion but not within!! Can’t upgrade to F5 yet so stuck debugging F3…so far can’t tell if its a JS or CSS problem! Thanks for the help though!

That’s funny: “inspect element” in Firefox makes it work.

Same in Safari and Chrome inspectors!

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] vdh_flickr

Firebug does it too.

Could you frig it by using jQuery to apply some harmless, yet productive styling to nudge the images? Something like a zoom:1 or height:auto or overflow:something – applied when (or after) the user clicks on that accordion tab.
