fdsPhotoFEED v1.0.0 Released!!

Posted on: November 8, 2008

A WordPress plugin for grabbing images and image info from SmugMug, Flickr, Picasa etc RSS feed. It 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 http://www.seismictalk.com though, as per the consent of Mr Brian Brigg, we are giving this plugin for free :p

Currently I am unable to list more than one different RSS feed in a page post. Is this a known issue? I am able to see multiple RSS feeds if they are all the same. But if I put in a different RSS feed, only the code is shown. See here:

Is it possible to display more than one different rss feed or am I doing something wrong?

Hello –

I successfully installed this plugin in WP 2.62. I’ve been able to load the right number of thumbnails from a SmugMug gallery, but the lightbox won’t load the larger image or the navigation. The lightbox just spins without resolving. Tried in Firefox and Safari.

Here’s a link to the test page: http://lefko.us/pacland/2008/12/kauai-aerials/

Any thoughts about what I can do to resolve (no pun intended) the situation are much appreciated.

@Steve,
Please use RSS-2.0 feed in lieu of Atom feed.

Thank you Ferdous. If my sample page had an Atom-formatted feed, I apologize.

I’ve tried using my RSS feeds, your sample RSS feed and both the Lightbox 2 and jquery versions of lightbox and gotten the same result in Firefox. A lightbox with a spinning gearwheel. I’ll keep trying.

Steve

@Steve,
Then certainly there is some problem with your lightbox plugin. Have you installed the plugin named wp-lightbox2.
please download and reinstall it from this location: http://zeo.unic.net.my/downloads/wp-lightbox2.zip

@Steve,
BTW, Lightbox2 has got some bugs in wordpress 2.7. So, if you are using wordpress version 2.7 than no way:(
you have to wait until the dev of wp-lightbox2 fix that
Thanks
