I have followed all the instructions on the other posts about flickr not pulling all photos, but its still not happening for me. It brings back just 5 of the photos, out of 22. All set to public view, all tagged with same tag, columns set to 6 and photo count set to 30.

I am probably being really thick, but its doing my head in now?!?!?!

Hi Deborah,

These are all the tips we give when pictures aren't showing:
* Check your privacy settings with Flickr - if the pictures you want are marked private, they will not show on your site.
* 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 possible, can you post a link to your Flickr stream and let me know which tag you are using so that we can take a look?

I have double checked all the above points and all seem in order. The only one that differs is photo count which I change beween 25 and 30 to enable me to 'apply' again to see if its working. This shouldnt make a difference though as I only have 22 photos in my flickr account.

Thanks in advance. x

Hi Deborah,

Sorry for our delayed response. We were waiting for an engineer to take a look at the problem and when he did so with his fresh eyes, he noticed that the Flickr stream you linked above actually only has 5 images in it. Is this the stream we should be referencing: http://www.flickr.com/photos/45560938... ?

Is it possible that some of your images are marked as private? I see Marije had you check that as well as a few other things above, but maybe you could take another look for us as we're only able to see 5 images in your photostream which implies the widget is working as expected.

Thanks for your patience as we work through this together!

Hi,

Sorry for not letting you know what I have done. Basically, after my initial quiery about flickr, I found out that there is no way to disable the function where anyone can click on the images and will be redirected to my flickr account, which I do not really want happening. So I deleted the other photos (They were all set to the correct settings though!). I also tried slide and photobucket but all seem to have links back to the account they come from, (I just wanted pics you can click on to enlarge and then press the x to close that screen down again ) so I have decided to just go for static indevidually placed pics.

Sorry for any extra work I have inadvertantly caused you and your engineer, its nice to know you were still working on it though and I hadnt been forgotten!!

and the reason I left those five pics there was because up until just a few hrs ago I still had those 5 on my page. x

Hello Deborah

I'm sorry that Flickr Lightbox didn't work out quite the way you wanted. I'm glad though to hear that you were able to find an alternative. :)
