FlickR Embed Test

I’m having trouble with my flickR embeds. The embedr seems to work on the draft page but only hyperlinks rather than give a slideshow within wordpress. Bear with us as WordPress and I try to hammer this out.

This One Bad Bird album shows as if it is embedded properly with the back and forth or right left or < >. Let’s see what happens 202200315.

Shane’s Flying Disc Show XDisc album shows < and > in Draft.
The image of the Xdisc and the mustang is a screen shot of my draft view.

Even in the preview before post mode the embedded blocks only hyperlink.

Round and Round with customer service.

Thanks for reaching out to us at Flickr! You’ll have to reach out to WordPress customer service and they will be able to help.

20210406. I was sent a customer service letter today that the bug is on WordPress’s side and they are working on it. That goes a long way in my book. This whole thing is a lot like magic anyway!

Dear Jessica, Thank you for working on this! I am going to attempt a step by step. Fir example I want to embed a FlickR album of m a local band. I go to flickR and grab the front page url.

Next up I hit the + to add a block.

I can choose from tons of stuff like Big Headings or paragraphs or embedding.

Then I look for the easy EmbedR specifically made for flickR by WordPress.

In the draft I can hover my mouse over the successful embed and the flickR hyper-link headr with logo shows up and the cursors which usually let me go left or right surf on the finished page.

HeadR (see how you’ve influenced me). In preview mode on WordPress end is where the trouble starts. I only get a hyper link. Used to work great. Well It has always worked very well up to 500 shots then it seems to hyper link. I mean as much ram as I have I can go really fast or click slowly. ( the 500 or more photos is another issue).

So when I update to the flickR wordpress test page I still just get hyper-link showing no cursors.

Let’s say i want to get fancy and go to share on FlickR and grab the embed code.

WordPress tells me then it just wants a url and not your embed code.

So let’s see what happens.

Maybe going to the embed box instead of the flickr embed box might work.

Same thing. It looks like it wants to work in draft. Then it only hyper links in preview. An update and refresh of my web page only gives me a hyper-link.

Test. Instead of using the url in the top search I am using the url given in the “share” feature.

Cross your fingers!

No. That just added a hyper link

This is how a person familiar with code explains it. I understand what she is saying and it is a lot better than me alking in to a hardware store saying I need a thing a ma jig!

The issue I can’t seem to resolve, and that does appear to be on WordPress’ side (sorry) is using an HTML block and adding the embed code. The following bit of code is stripped every time the post is published, even though previewing the code appears to work properly:
data-flickr-embed=”true” data-header=”true” data-footer=”true”

Hopefully this information will help WordPress discover the root cause of the problem. Otherwise, I hope one of the other options works for you!

Looking forward to an update.

Best,
Jessica

Dear  Kris,
 I found a technical  explanation from FlickR.  See if one of your  code writers can use this information.
