Posted on: October 15, 2008

fdsPhotoFEED v1.0.0

A WordPress plugin for grabbing images and image info from SmugMug, Flickr, Picasa etc RSS feed. Uses the lastRSS PHP class written by Vojtech Semecky. I have taken some reference from Hasin vai’s works. This is why this plugin is dedicated to my hero Hasin Hayder. Thanks also goes to Lenin for giving me this work . Actually this plugin is developed for the owner of As per the permission of owner we will release it for free!!


The fdsPhotoFEED class uses the lastRSS class to grab images from a SmugMug, Flickr, Picasa etc RSS feed to display on any wordpress hosted website. It provides access to the image’s title, description, SmugMug, Flickr, Picasa etc page URL, and the image in any size that SmugMug, Flickr, Picasa etc offers.


  1. It can fetch photos from SmugMug.
  2. It can fetch photos from Flickr.
  3. It can fetch photos from Picasa.
  4. It supports image caching
  5. It supports lightbox2 slideshow with navigation button Prev & Next.
  6. Image Caption is fetched and shown in lightbox2 show

Installation & Usage:

  • Download and unzip the latest version of the plug-in.
  • If you have a previous version of fdsPhotoFEED installed, disable it on the WordPress Plugins page.
  • Place the “fdsPhotoFEED” folder in your “wp-content/plugins/” directory (over write the old folder if it exists).
  • Activate fdsPhotoFEED on the WordPress Plugins page.
  • Insert “{rss uri=yourFeedURLgoesHere limit=10}” (minus the quotes and spaces) in the source of any page or post you want to display the form on.

sample formats of the {rss} tag

1.{rss uri= limit=5}

there are 2 attribute in this {rss} tag which we look for

1. uri = rss feed location

2. limit = how many photo to show


Please wait for a few more days to get your copy as I have got some license issues 😦

Splendid work Ferdous.

I had very little to do with your efforts as once you had the idea you ran away with it and created a whole new plugin with more features than I had anticipated.

I wish you every success and hope that you get the recognition you deserve.

Gr8 work 🙂
