Flickr plugin 2.0x

Sorry if this is somewhere in the forums, tried a search and couldn't find what I needed.

I recall that for the 1.0x versions there was a Flickr or photo plugin, whereby you'd instal it, and a button would appear in the post editor. You could press the Flickr button and insert the URL of the Flickr photo and it would render the image into the post. (Ok, I'm not sure if I'm imagining this plugin or not, but I recall I had something like this...?)

PLEASE NOTE: I'm not referring to a gallery plugin, or indeed the photoblog plugin which creates a slideshow. I don't want a slideshow, just a way of allowing the user to render photos from Flickr or another photo collection site.

I did find this

but as it's from 2005, am wondering how useful it is for the 2.0x versions.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

I don't use flickr, but assuming it has a "post this on a forum" link then you should be able to just copy/paste that into your write screen and it'll work ?

It'd look something like [url=http:///flickr.tld/url][img]http://flickr.tld/image.jpg[/img][/url]

All I do is post the code from the image 'All Sizes' option on flickr and adjust the image with to suit the skin (575px wide in my case). The code looks like this:


<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/chris-of-arabia/3161054548/" title="Between the Cracks by Chris of Arabia, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/190/3161054548_81d9798263_o.jpg" width="870" height="603" alt="Between the Cracks" /></a>

Ok thanks. So it looks like there's no plugin that I was thinking of. I think I'll just try to find a way to use the 2005 hack.

(On a side note, it would be great if we could have a plugin that works like a Flickr app - type in a user id in the b2evo user's profile, and when editing a post, you click a button and it pulls up all the Flickr pics from that user id... Would that be hard to do?)
