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 Bailey4302,

I'm sorry you are having this problem. In the properties sidebar did you enter your Flickr account email address (usually a Yahoo! address) in the email address field?

Also, please 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.

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.

Thank you for your reply. What is happening is I am tagging my pictures, an example all my cupcake pictures are tagged cupcakes but yet, they will come up in the cookie tag when I add it to the page. I have all unique tags for my pictures but they come up sometimes in other sets. Take a look at my page www.cakesibake.com and look under cookies, you will see a cupcake there! Even though it is tagged as a cupcake.
