Hi,

It helps if you use the same tag for all of the pictures that you wish to add to your Flickr page on SynthaSite.

Please let us know if you haven't been able to have all of your pictures display for you.

You need to have tags on your photos in Flickr so that the widget from SynthaSite knows which pictures to pull from your account. The tags help to identify the ones you want - use the tags in Flickr as your search terms for the Lightbox widget.

Does that make sense? I'm not sure I've explained it very well.

Remember too that Flickr allows only a maximum of 30 photos per page.

i tagged all the photos the same tag and searched it in my lightbox search but the rest still wont show up. i only have 17 pics in total and a random 9 are the only ones that show, its weird. i feel like im doing something obviously dumb but cant figure it out.

Hi baloo - I can't work it out from your site either. Please could you click on Help > Contact Support in the top right of the Site Builder and send a Support request to us. This will give us more information to help you. I'm sorry this is taking so long!
