Hi!
I've just started my website a few minutes ago and I want to have a gallery on it. I've tried the Flickr LightBox because it's really what I need. I would like to know how can I change the photos, I mean, What do I need to put my own photos.
Thank you so much and sorry about my English :P

Hello Telmaluzia

Here are the steps on how to incorporate your photos into the Flickr Lightbox Gallery.

1. In the Content sidebar in Yola, open the Photo Gallery folder.
2. Drag and drop a Flickr Lightbox widget onto your page.
3. In the properties sidebar enter your Flickr account email address (usually a Yahoo! address) in the email address field.
4. In the "Photo Count" field, enter the number of images you want to display.
5. In the "Search" field, enter the tags of the photos you want to pull from Flickr (make sure you have added tags to your Flickr photos or you will not get the desired result).
6. Specify how many columns you want for your photo gallery.
7. Click on the Image Size drop down menu to select small square, thumbnail or medium sized images.
8. Finally, choose between a "modern" or "plain" style for your photo gallery images.
9. Click the "Apply" button to update your photo gallery.

Now save and preview your page. You will have a gallery of clickable images. In the top right hand corner of the large view of the images, click the "next" button to view the next image in the gallery. Click the "Close" button when you are finished browsing through your gallery.

Note: If there are privacy settings on your Flickr photos the search will not be successful. The photos need to be publicly available for it to work.

Littleus, I appreciate your help but I still don't see any images on my page.
I created an album on flickt, with tags, but it is like it was before. What am I doing wrong?

I've been reading a post about the privacy of photos on Flickr. My album was private but I changed it to public. Still doesn't work...

Can you check the following as well:

* 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.

If none of these resolves your issue, please let us know.

Hello Telmaluzia

Can you please tell me the tag you used for your Flickr? Do they match the tags you used in the search field?

Thanks Telmanluzia for that information. Can you please try this:
In your Flickr account, please try using just one word for your photos and use this same word for all your photos that you want to show up on your website. Then, go to your site builder and enter that same word into the search field of your Flickr lightbox widgetbox. This should hopefully bring up your photos. I would suggest using a word which does not contain any special characters (e.g. cakes not aniversário as it has an accent in the word).

Please let me know how this goes.
