new plugin: Flickr Images

New plugin on the market - Flickr Images. Just like you'd expect, it pulls images from Flickr and displays in a menu list. Clicking on a menu item shows the image full-size. Required properties include: flickerApiKey (see http://www.flickr.com/services/api/) flickrType (“Photoset”, “Gallery”, or “Search”) searchString (can be id of a Photoset or Gallery, or a string to search by) Available for iOS 2.0, 3.0, and Android 2.0. Android 3.0 support coming soon.

Note: until the config_cp.txt file is working properly, you'll have to manually add in the required properties listed above.

I don't think so. I'll have to take another look, but I seem to remember them not being supported well by the Flickr api

Just took a quick look at the API on my phone, and looks like groups are supported. I think the issue was that groups weren't going to be helpful for what I was trying to do when I made this, so I didn't include them. I'll be sure to add support soon.

Can you please provide a screenshot to exactly where the api code goes? I noticed that new feature of json is utilized but this plugin is a bit confusing :( Thanks

@Sheri - there's a section on the control panel labeled "Flickr API Key". @Fred - can you send me your debug output so I can see what's going on?

What happens when you copy the API URL from the debug output and paste it into a browser?

This is so cool i got it. Ok it was not obvious there is a photo set id, gallery id ect. The id was found in the url of the photo set it self. But now it works great! thanks for the quick speedy response chris. Here is an example url http://www.flickr.com/photos/91246276@N06/sets/72157639119015356/ id = 72157639119015356
