photostream grid layout

  1. hi everyone, kinda and just about done.

    i've seen a photostream layout where the thumbnails are laid out in a 3x3 grid with each photo clickable, not just a mosiac image. does anyone know where i can get this widget/shortcode/html or did i see a plugin or .org?

    thanks for any help in advance.

    The blog I need help with is bornintexas.wordpress.com.

    Please post the complete URL for the blog in question starting with http:// so we can provide accurate answers to your questions. Also note that there is no FTP access to free blogs from and being free hosted by wordpress.COM and we cannot upload plugins into them. We can use HTML tables with thumbnails on free hosted by wordpress.COM blogs and we can create galleries.

    If you are referring to a wordpress.ORG install then please post to this support forum http://wordpress.ORG/support/

  3. sorry, recently changed the name to better reflect my intent.

    should have known i'd see you answer first after scouring the forums and reading your site along with some others. :-p

    the blog i've seen that has what i want is nerdfitness.com. i know this is a custom theme but wasn't sure if the photo layout on the right sidebar was custom or something i could add to mine. thanks for the reply.

  4. It looks to me like that wordpress.ORG install has a Flickr widget in the sidebar but I could be wrong. We do have a Flickr widget can use on wordpress.COM blogs. Have you tried it? http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/flickr-widget/

  5. yeah, i just didn't like the way the .com flickr widget just ran down the side. i was pretty sure his was a .org but wasn't sure about the widget, prob a plugin i suppose. thanks for checking and i'll keep reading your blog, very informative.

  6. If you want you can create an HTML table and then upload images into it and display it in your sidebar. It's not hard to do at all. Your limitation is of course the width of the sidebar in your theme > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/01/11/sidebar-width/

    HTML tables are constructed of rows and cells. How many rows and how many cells is up to you.
    * table means “start” the table.
    * you can adjust numbers in border, cellspacing, and cellpadding; align center, right, or left
    * headings in a table are defined with the <th> tag like this <th>Another Heading</th>
    * body means start entering your contents into the table
    * tr means start a table row
    * td means put data, image or text
    * repeat td as many times as you want cells across your table
    * repeat the table rows (tr) as many times as you want
    * for every < there is a > <something>
    * for every < > start there must be a </> close
    * </table> means close the table

    Example
    <table>
    <tr>
    <td>row 1, cell 1</td>
    <td>row 1, cell 2</td>
    <td>row 1, cell 3</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>row 2, cell 1</td>
    <td>row 2, cell 2</td>
    <td>row 2, cell 3</td>
    </tr>
    </table>
  7. If you are using flickr photos, you can drop in their thumbnail code into the table cells. But if you put this in your sidebar, it all depends on the width. Check out the post that timethief linked to.

  8. Oh, also forgot to remember http://flickriver.com/ :) They have a widget that works both in a text widget and on posts/pages.

  9. holy smokes!

    It works and looks just like I wanted it to.
