Hello AlexisH

I am not sure why this would be happening nor do I fully understanding what is going on. Can you please clarify a bit more about the issue that you're seeing? What URL are you adding to your feeds?

Hi there AlexisH,

Could you please share your URL so we can take a look at your site and see how your feeds are displaying?

Do you know Yola has an embedded Flickr Widget that pulls your images from your photo-stream and shows them on your site?

You can find it in your Right Hand Sidebar in the "Multimedia" Tab.

Many thanks for working with us on this.

Hello AlexisH,
I took a look at your site and used the search box from FreeFinder to search for the keyword "somerset" and it did pull things from your site, here is a screen shot of what I am seeing:


I can confirm that it worked for this search term for me, however if it is not working for other search terms or not working consistently, then unfortunately as this is an externally embedded widget we would not be able to troubleshoot why it is not functioning as it should. The best people to contact would be the creators of the widget.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Hi, AlexisH,

Php cannot be used with Yola. Sorry I don't have better news.

Hi AlexisH

Does it give you a HTML embed code option at all? If so, then you will be able to add it inside a HTML WIdget.

Let us know if you need more help!

i have 6 versions of code

the two that i have used with success are

javascript whicg im using now and displays correctly and feeds work, but if not searchable within my site

iframe which doesnt display properly and looks wrong and obveously doesnt search within the site

the other options are

php
wordpress
facebook
and directlink

im not having much luck at the moment, its not your guys fault as im probably trying to be too adventurous and dont have the skills, i spend so much time editing all the details on flickr for my photos and setting up groups that people can add to that i want to set my site up so that it automatically updates threw the feeds... this does work but it would be nice if people could find what they are looking for :-)

Hi Alex,
Thanks for your message. We are glad to hear that you have managed to get the javascript and iFrame on your site, however, we are sorry to hear that they are not working to the extent you are hoping for. Would you mind sharing the page(s) you have these loaded onto?

In regards to the other items you are looking at:
As Diane mentioned, PHP cannot be used with Yola.
Please see this thread in regards to importing your Wordpress blog.
You can certainly add a Facebook Button!
This tutorial will assist you with creating a link for Directlink.

i have feeds embedded on almost all of my pages, but on the homepage www.relex109.com the feed is the gray box with photos below the twitter feed and it pulls new content from flickr in this case my photostream (feed://api.flickr.com/services/feeds/photos_public.gne?id=30509233@N02&lang=en-us&format=rss_200)

Hi AlexisH

I see the flickr photostream on the homepage of relex109.com. Is the feed pulling through the incorrect photos?

Hi AlexisH

You may want to do some more research about searches for Flickr content to find a suitable app. Maybe something like the Flickr App Search.

Just a thought ;)
