    Thank you! I’m not sure why that wasn’t working before…

    read through this thread a couple times…

    I can get my own Flikr photos to come up, but what if I want to use the feed for “interestingness?” I moused over the (feed) and copied the link. I added it in the blank, and still the white box with “More Photos” comes up.

    not in a hurry about it, but still wondering what i might be doing wrong…

    I’m at Egana’s Tapdance http://egana.wordpress.com/

    thanks

    Are you sure you’ve got the feed URL in there? I don’t see anything in the outputted HTML code for your widget.

    A more fundamental Q.
    Where does one change edit the feed info on wordpress.com?

    And, from the white box, i woke up this morning to the flickr feed pointing to someone else’s!!??

    Wellll…

    This “http://feeds.feedburner.com/InterestingFlickr” is in the URL box, which is what I got yesterday when I moused over the “(feed)” that was next to the sentance “Leave the Flikr RSS URL feed blank to display “Interesting” Flikr photos.”

    So I thought I was doing what the directions said to do, but I am not very computer savvy, so maybe I did it wrong…

    Today, however, that sentance says that if I leave it blank, I will get to see “Donncha’s” Flikr photos, which I don’t really want

    *wink*

    and the “(feed)” at the end is missing..

    So clearly something has changed between yesterday and today.

    again, I am at Egana’s Tapdance http://egana.wordpress.com/

    The Interestingness feed is broken now, if someone can find another feed for it I’ll update the widget with it.
    Feed URLS look like this:
    http://flickr.com/services/feeds/photos_public.gne?id=78656712@N00&format=rss_200

    I am having the same issue as most of the people on here. Help!!!!

    http://mbower.wordpress.com/

    This is what I have been puting in:

    http://www.flickr.com/services/feeds/photos_public.gne?id=27155143@N00&format=rss_200

    Funny thing is…if I put nothing in there, I get the random pics and they work just fine.

    Has anyone else noticed the title of the widget being filename of the latest photo? Also, why are the thumbnails squares now?

    Scrambled, not sure what you’re looking at but on your flickr widget, I don’t see square thumbnails and the widget title is “Latest Flickr”

    MBower, the RSS worked fine for me.

    Is the new feed busted too? In my Flikr window, it is now a toss up whether I see the actual image, or the title of the image. For example, right now my Flikr window says “Sister and Brother” centered at the top, and then the “More Photos” centered at the bottom of the white rectangle.

    If its not going to work, that’s ok. I’ll just remove the widget. But I will give it a couple days (also, don’t want to mess with it if you are trying to check it out).

    thanks for you time… WordPress is so great. I really like it, and think it has the easiest interface (user friendly, accessible, functional, looks good, etc.) of all the blogs I have tried.

    The link that Donncha lists says it’s not working.

    How can I delete “Flickr” from my side bar?
    I drag it off…but returns again.

    Are you clicking on “Save Changes” after you remove the widget? Sounds like you might not be.

    hrmm… i’m still having troube… I tried the public feed and at best, I can get the titles, not the actual thumbnails. And that’s only if I add ?id=XXXX. I tried to use my username, but it looks like I’m getting the general public

    portugalkds, not sure. Best bet would be to submit a feedback and see if you can get one of the support members to look at it.

    linh, looks like you’re doing everything fine, it’s just that the thumbnails aren’t coming over. Are you sure those pictures are publicly viewable? I do note that they’re not yours. What’s the URL of the feed that you are using and the URL of where you found it?

    You might want to provide a link to this thread as well. I would submit a Feedback myself for you but I’m stuck on a one window at a time terminal until this afternoon. :(

    Well, dear ┬źdrmike┬╗, thanks for your help, but in fact I did not explain myself in a correct way, as my problem is to completed remove all “the Flickr window” from the sidebar. I dont need it at all. Made myself clear now?
    Sorry for the misunderstood.
    Tks
