flickr problems, i am trying to have expandable photos on my page and i was told to use the flickr app to do this. i want specific pic on specific pages in a certain order. i used tags in order to use the search function but for some reason its not pull up all the photos with common tags. I do not see any option to reorder the pix as they appear on the page and i need help to accomplish this task.

Hello there Newyorktrini,
Unfortunately it is difficult to get specific images to show up in order in your Flickr tool.

I would suggest that you manually create your photogallery. It can take a bit longer but you will get a better result.

To create clickable thumbnails on your site, please follow these steps.

1. Upload the thumbnails (these are the small versions of your pictures) and the corresponding full-sized photos into the File Manager.
2. Drag and drop a text widget on to your page and add the thumbnails by clicking on the "Insert Image" icon in the Text Editing toolbar (the one with the green tree).
3. Click on the "Add Page" button. Name it something logical like "photo1" and be sure that the "Show in Navigation" box is NOT checked. Your new and empty page will load up ready for you to add the corresponding photograph.
4. To make the thumbnail link to the full sized image, click on the thumbnail and then on the link button in the text editing toolbar (it looks like a sideways 8) You then select "link to page" and select your page from the list.
5. Save and Update your site so that your changes will be reflected on your live site and you will have your click-able image.

I hope this helps.
