Flickr slideshow on a static wordpress page

  1. Is it possible to post a Flickr slideshow on a static wordpress page, as opposed to the blog page?

    If so, how?

    Thank you!

  2. Please post the complete clickable URL for the blog to which you refer starting with http://

  3. I also have this question. I did like to use either my picasa web albums or flickr photos as a slideshow on my static page labelled home (the first page you reach on my blog). I hope the slideshow can replace the one image that I have and be the same size and quality looking.

    http://photographsbyseon.com

    Thanks in advance for any help on this.

  4. I'm sorrry I used the wrong link above to my blog. So used to the domain...

    It is http://photographsbyseon.wordpress.com

  5. You can use Vodpod to add your Flickr slide show to a blog entry so I believe you can add that same code to a static page. It could also depend on the theme.

    One way you can do that is: go to the actual Flickr slide show page, use the vodpod share button (http://vodpod.com/button), select WordPress, click the link near the bottom that says "options" and then "get the code", paste that code on your page or entry.

  6. Thank you very much for replying! I did try the Vodpod solution but I am not able to control he size and timing of the slides? Maybe I'll dig through the code and see if I can change things!

  7. Timethief, you wanted my URL... here it is:

    http://eatforequity.org

    Why the URL is necessary to answer the question?

    Thanks!

    (1) wordpress.com and worpress.org run on different software. The answers to questions that are correct for one kind of software may not be the correct answers for the other software.

    (2) Inorance of the differences between the two kinds of software is profound and pervasive as many bloggers fail to read the Read Before Posting sticky post at the head of this forum which does explain the differences http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/please-read-me-first-before-posting?replies=

    (3) They also fail to read the wordpress.com support documentation here http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/ which is also placed front and ceter on the wordpress.com suuport documentation front page. The result is that bloggers posting to the wrong forums waste their own time and the time of the Volunteers here on the wordpress.com forum.

    (4) The drop down menu where the blog URL is placed when creating a forum thread is not visible to Volunteers answering questions on the wordpress.com support forum. Consequently, volunteers on this forum must always ask for the URL to the blog in question each and every time they reply to a forum thread.

    (5) if you do have a wordpress.com blog then there are two choices for expediting the receipt of answers to questions posed in forum threads.
    a. Post the complete and clickable URL for the blog in question starting with http:// every time you create a thread.
    B. Link your username to your.blog. Dashboard –> Users –> Your Profile. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Website‘ and fill in the address of your blog and then click ‘Update Profile‘.

  9. @ambarrita, because a lot of people post questions here in the WordPress.com forums when they actually should be asking over at the ORG forum (for self-hosted blogs). Since our WordPress software is different than the self-hosted version, our answers may not apply. That's why. :)

    A longer explanation about the difference between COM and ORG can be found at the top of these forums.

    No problem and not to worry. I cannot type as quickly as others do so I just accept the fact that there will be echoing and overlapping.
