I replaced the flickr page with an AJAX powered wordpress plugin called slickr. It describes itself like this:
Slickr Gallery is a very fast, light, bandwidth-friendly AJAX photo gallery plugin for WordPress. It allows you to pull your Flickr-hosted photos into a gallery section of your blog, as well as easily add Flickr-hosted images to your posts and pages. It is especially useful for people with many Flickr albums/photos. All code is valid xhtml.
The plugin that links to my flickr account displays the three sets that I can maintain as a non-paying member of flickr in three different ways:
- You can click on a set name and then individually select photos to view and scroll through (my favorite option) .
- You can view a flickr slideshow in a pop-up window (2nd favorite).
- You can go directly to my flickr page (boring).
The limited sets is a real bummer, but you can’t blame flickr for trying to drive people to pay for its service. I plan on keeping the sets fluid, mixing it up a bit so it stays fresh and relevant.
