Sorry, but I don't know much about flickr. I just wanted to say, your site looks awesome. It is very clean and laid out. It looks very professional and you might want to consider enter the featured site's competition for Yola.

Hi John,

Currently the Flickr Lightbox widget only allows you to quickly and easily create a slick photo gallery with thumbnails that link to larger images.
Here's how it is done:

1. In the Content sidebar in Yola, open the Photo Gallery folder.
2. Drag and drop a Flickr Lightbox widget onto your page.
3. In the properties sidebar enter your Flickr account email address (usually a Yahoo! address) in the email address field.
4. In the "Photo Count" field, enter the number of images you want to display.
5. In the "Search" field, enter the tags of the photos you want to pull from Flickr (make sure you have added tags to your Flickr photos or you will not get the desired result).
6. Specify how many columns you want for your photo gallery.
7. Click on the Image Size drop down menu to select small square, thumbnail or medium sized images.
8. Finally, choose between a "modern" or "plain" style for your photo gallery images.
9. Click the "Apply" button to update your photo gallery.

Now save and preview your page. You will have a gallery of clickable images. In the top right hand corner of the large view of the images, click the "next" button to view the next image in the gallery. Click the "Close" button when you are finished browsing through your gallery.

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.

We have a great tutorial for you to view, please click here: Photo Galleries - http://www.yola.com/tutorials/photo-g...

Hey Guys - That is me Kershnee the Yola Rep. I am having issues with my GS accounts. Therefore sometimes my posts are done through my personal GS account instead of my Yola account.
