can't insert a flickr slideshow

  1. Until now I have no problem with insert a Flickr slideshow in a post. I copy the Flickr url in my post and the slide show is ready to play when I acces to my blog. In the last two posts it's no possible to do that. When I copy the url, WordPress don't seem to manage correctly the Flickr slide. I only can see a text with my url. Ther is any problem with wordpress or is a Flickr mistake?

    The blog I need help with is josepjarabo.com.

  2. I don't understand your answer :-(
    I Always insert a slideshow from Flickr copying the url from the share button on Flicker slideshow into a WordPress post. Only in the two last posts is not possible do that.
    Thank you for your attention.

  3. Are you willing to try these instructions ? > The gigya shortcode 2 – inserting Flickr slideshows

  4. This slideshow /photos/josepmanel07/sets//show/ there's an extra backslash before the word "show", remove one

    This slideshow /photos/josepmanel07/sets/72157629552205345/show/ needs to have the link removed. You can use the "unlink" button in the Editor toolbar.

    This slideshow //photos/josepmanel07/sets/72157629112345412/show/ also has an extra backslash before the word "photos", remove one.

    In all cases, you must make sure that each URL is on its own line with no extra code (look in the HTML editor to be sure) and is not "linked". If it is, use the "unlink" button.

    You also need to have autoembed enabled in your Media Settings. http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/media-settings/

    Thanks for your eagle eyes. :)

  6. Welcome, tt. Oddly enough, I was encountering those extra backslashes also on flickr, so I'm wondering what's going on there.

  7. Hmmm ... extra backslashes in URLs on the Flickr site sounds like something that needs to be reported to their support Staff.

  8. Thanks a lot!!! All is running perfectly now. The two solutions you a ported work fine. The gigya short code 2 works fine but the easiest way is to remove the backslash. Thanks "timethief" and "justjennifer" for your attention. Thanks!

  9. @josjar-You are entirely welcome and I'm glad we could help resolve your problem.

    @tt- my reason for mentioning the extra backslashes on flickr was to indicate that this problem did not originate with WordPress.com. :)
