Hi all,

I am trying to embed a flickr photo set to a site I am working on. I have done this using the embed code that flickr gives you. However, I have installed Lightbox on the webserver because I want to be able to view the photoset through Lightbox.

You can see that I have lightbox working and am also able to embed a Flickr photo set here:http://www.cre8ivedance.co.uk/v2/galleryPhotoView.php?recordID=2

but I would like these to be integrated together...

Is this possible? And if so, could you help me with this please?

Tom

Hi,

I have just looked at this and installed it - however, this is a tool for my browser. I would need all my users to install this plugin so this wont work.

Is it possible to have a lightbox type application that is fed by Flickr sets?

Hi,

I have found a jQuery plugin that does this perfect: http://www.yoxigen.com/yoxview/

I have installed this and tested it and it works perfect. It also works with You Tube videos so (I've not tested this part yet though).

Cheers,

Tom
