Can I use the slideshow widget with a free account, or is that just for pro accounts?

Yes you can and all things are available to everyone.When you pay here it is for a Top Level Domain that you own or pay to remove the YOLA footer.Free sub domains do not have limits on them... use of the site builder and hosting is the same for all.

I'm having trouble trying to get the slideshow to work on my site. I used the Widgetbox gallery and clicked on Flickr slideshow. I opened a Flickr account yesterday and added about 10 photos which I tagged.

When I edit the widget, I typed in the search terms, tags, and my flickr user id. When I click on "get widget" the slideshow box appears on my page, and the title I gave it shows up, but "searching" appears where the slideshow should be-no photos. Do my photos have to be uploaded to my File manager for this to work? I assumed it could get them from my Flickr account.

Hello Francine,

I'm sorry to hear that you are having problems getting your pictures to show up on your site. Could you try the following things for me, please?

* Check your privacy settings with Flickr - if the pictures you want are marked private, they will not show on your site.
* Make sure the tags you are using are accurate and match the ones on your photos.
* Make sure your pictures are classified as Photos on Flickr and not another category.
* Make sure that you have used the email address associated with your Flickr account (if you have more than one email).
* Be as specific as possible in your search terms.

Please let us know if after trying these suggestions you are still unable to see your pictures.
