Re: Another Flickr not showing images

just copied and pasted it..removed the double //, re-did the size ratio to my custom and my replaced the
flickruser_id with the no..and still the same unfortunately

Re: Another Flickr not showing images

At the moment, you have a SimpleViewer v2.0.3 gallery failing to find your Flickr images but you have posted this in the TiltViewer forum.  Which viewer are you trying to use?
Also, you have 3 different chunks of embedding code on your page (2 x swfobject object for different versions and 1 x object/embed type).
Use only one (swfobject recommended).
If using TiltViewer, Mike's link shows you the correct code.
If using SimpleViewer v2.0.3, here is the embedding code you'll need: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/su … ng.html#js (the Flickr options for SimpleViewer are set in the XML file).

Re: Another Flickr not showing images

Your embedding code looks fine but you have a few redundant lines in your XML file for a Flickr gallery (and a couple of these redundant lines have incorrect syntax, namely imagePath and thumbPath).
Try using the following code as your XML file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<simpleviewergallery
    galleryStyle="MODERN"
    title="SimpleViewer Gallery"
    textColor="FFFFFF"
    frameColor="FFFFFF"
    frameWidth="20"
    thumbPosition="LEFT"
    thumbColumns="3"
    thumbRows="3"
    showOpenButton="TRUE"
    showFullscreenButton="TRUE"    
    maxImageWidth="800"
    maxImageHeight="425"
    useFlickr="TRUE"
    flickrUserName="middletondesign"
    flickrTags="installation,shelves,kitchen,Kitchenette,Display wall unit,Credenza1,AVunit,AVunit2,AVunit3,bookshelves1,credenza1,Vanity,Vanity1,vanity1,Bookshelves1,mirrors"
    languageCode="AUTO">
</simpleviewergallery>

Failing that, try removing the flickrTags line to see if it loads any images from your Flickr account.

Re: Another Flickr not showing images

Thanks so much Steven & Mike the latter suggestion worked for some reason! (deleting the flickr tags) for future reference,
is there a reason why it works now? Thank you so much, I really appreciate it big_smile

Re: Another Flickr not showing images

Judging from a couple of other posts here and in the Flickr forums, there might be a problem with recently added/tagged images not being found in Flickr API searches.
Hopefully, this is just a temporary Flickr issue which will be sorted soon.
