Flickr widget has broken – outputs bad HTML

  • Author

    Pictures were uploaded yesterday to the Flickr account and now the feed is broken on our wordpress blog. The widget shows up but no images show up. I looked at the HTML source code and it looks like the HTML is messed up. The HTML special characters are being escaped. It looks like this:

    <img vspace="2" hspace="5" class="flickr_photo" alt=" <p>OUR BLOG

    (note, I changed info from the URL before posting it here)

    What could have caused this? How can I solve this? Thank you.
