Exc-el blogs – Flickr widget removed

The Flickr Widget Plugin has been removed. Unfortunately it breaks a blog if it’s activated before Sidebar Widgets are activated. The blog’s address just displays a blank screen, and it’s not possible for the blog’s owner, or a WordPress administrator, to fix it – it’s a system admin job.

Because that’s the last thing we need in a classroom situation, I’ve removed it meantime. Keeping the blog system robust and reliable must take priority. Sorry if you’ve been using it and can’t now.

The images are displayed using lightbox (included in download), and are then linked to the original flickr photopage. The images displayed can be displayed in chronological or random order. Feedback is welcome. […]
