Flickr Friday: Adding A Complete Flickr Album To WordPress

As I have just discovered this I am dedicating Flickr Friday to it even though it is a bit more of a Theory Thursday item. I found that it is possible to embed a complete album with navigation into WordPress from Flickr using their HTML iFrame code.

The way I did it:

  1. At Flickr, go to the album you want to embed from.
  2. Select the picture you want it to start at.
  3. Click on the share icon, select HTML as the code, set the size you want and set the radio button at the bottom of the share box as ‘Embed’ (not HTML).
  4. Copy the complete ‘iframe’ code.
  5. Paste it into position in your WordPress post or page using the text editor (not the visual editor)

Bang…embedded album with navigation! This one in particular if the ‘My Melbourne’ album I have created from my pictures around, you guessed it, Melbourne.

I assume it would also be possible to embed your favorites and galleries using this method but maybe that is one for next week.

Thank you thank you thank you! Was having difficulty with this, and for whatever reason some of the HTML generators I was finding were only including some of the gallery in the album. You’re a lifesaver!
