I am getting very frutrated! I added a link to my page so I can add more photos, I went to flickr and created my tags for them. However, when I go to add the flickr box diffrent pictures come up instead of the ones that I had tagged for that page. Any suggestions as to why it is doing this? Thanks!

Hi Bailey

From your description it sounds like different pictures are coming up from your account than the ones you are trying to tag. Am I correct?

This is what I suggest you do:
1) Use only one unique tag on the pictures you want on your page (please note that the Flickr TOS mean dictate a maximum of 30 images per page)
2) Search ONLY on that one unique tag when you enter the search phrase in the properties sidebar.

That should give you more control over the images that are extracted. We need to work on ways to give you greater control over the Flickr widget. However, for now I hope my suggestion will work for you.
