flickrRSS is now a widget

eightface // flickrRSS plugin for WordPress

dave updated flickrRSS so it’s now a widget. i’ve been waiting for this for a while, since i like my widgets to integrate, rather than looking like i shoved flickr’s JS badge in a text widget.

also, the admin panel has been moved from the presentation page to the options page, which makes a hell of a lot more sense.
unfortunately, calling the flickrRSS from the widget interface means there’s no easy way to style the thing. so here’s the hack:

in the flickrRSS options page, change the ‘before’ to <li class="sb-flickr">

and add the following to your style.css:



*/ {

margin-left: 2px !important;

padding: 0px;

text-indent: none;



} a, a:hover, a:visited {

text-decoration: none;

border: none !important;


background:transparent !important;

} a img {

 border: 1px solid #ccc;

 margin: 0 2px 2px 0;

 } a:hover img {

 border: 1px solid #0FA1B8;


that’ll make it look like the builtin support i gave the version 3.0 in disconnected (which i blatantly stole from k2).

    i’m still totally weirded out that he went from something so grungy and image heavy to the uber-minmalism.
    i kinda liked the pre-reboot better, since the current version doesn’t really have any heirarchy at all.

    Not to digress from the Flickr widget (which is great), but Dave’s design doesn’t have any hierarchy. It’s really just been reduced to a pure weblog, which I honestly (gulp) find refreshing.

    Whether it’s appropriate for that kind of site, well, that’s another discussion . . .
