Flickr insert

While looking for a way to display a set of thumbnails in a post I found a WordPress plugin that lets you include photos from flickr. Unfortunately it uses fopen which my hosting provider apparently does not allow. Looks like there is some xmlrpc package installed though so I guess I could rewrite the plugin to use that instead.

Update: Found a solution. Rewrite Flicker Insert using the method described for a similar plugin on this page. You learn something new every day I guess.


I’ve just migrated some of my few and boring blog entries from MSN Spaces to see if I like blogging with WordPress better. If I decide this is better I probably should try and customize the theme, shouldn’t be too difficult. I really should remove the awful web page I have as well and possibly replace the main page with the blog.

First order of business though is to find a plugin that lets me add images and photos to blog entries. That is something that is made very easy at MSN Spaces. One alternative would be to use flickr’s blogging services, guess I should try to see how it works.
