Problems w/FlickRiver badge code

    I’m trying to create something nicer looking than the current Flickr widget for my sidebar in The Morning After. I’m looking for a two column approach and Flickriver has a helpful badge creator I’ve added to a text widget. The problem is that the one-column vertical badge works fine (and looks more put-together than the uncropped Flickr widget, so I’ll use it if nothing else better comes along), but when I try to put in the code for the two-column, I just get a question mark on my home page. Basically, I’ve changed the “4×3” in the original code to “2×3” to make it fit my sidebar, but I’ve made no other change. Any ideas on whether this is fixable or just something with WP that will never work?

    Here’s the code for a one-column vertical string that works:

    The blog I need help with is misspreservation.com.

    You can’t change the “4×3” because it’s not code, it’s part of the URL of an image. Same URL with “2×3” in place of “4×3” simply doesn’t exist. You are confined to the options the FlickRiver badge generator gives you.

    Oh, phooey. It’s weird how Flickr and WP don’t seem to want to work together. It shouldn’t be this difficult
