Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

    * Q - "A generic error occurred in GDI+."
    * A - make sure your anonymous iis user (IUSR_MACHINE) has write permissions to your nFlickrViewer site
    * Q - I change the settings, and the old images still appear
    * A - make sure to clear your browser cache
    * Q - SimpleViewer is not reloading the images (they are coming from my local cache)?
    * A - http://www.airtightinteractive.com/simp … /faq.html. You may be looking at a cached version of gallery.xml. Browsers will save previously viewed versions of files on the web for faster loading. To avoid this, you can clear your browser cache after making updates. To clear the cache in Internet Explorer go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Delete Files, or press Ctrl-F5 to reload the page without caching. Visitors to your gallery will almost always see the latest version of your gallery. Most browsers check for newer versions of files on each browser session. Browser caching happens for all websites, so this issue applies to all files on the web.
    * Q - Where can i get a Flickr API key?
    * A - http://www.flickr.com/services/api/keys/
    * Q - What server should I use to host this application?
    * A - try Cassini Web Server - for .Net 2.0 - http://ultidev.com/download/default.aspx or IIS6+ (comes with some windows flavors)
    * Q - How can I host this on my PC- but allow the world to see it?
    * A - Look at a dynamic DNS product, and opening a port on your firewall. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_DNS


Future Enhancements

    * Google Analytics integration
    * add multiple flickr sets to home page
    * add MaxUploadedDate, Min as filters
    * System Requirements (covers supported platforms)
    * Project Documentation
    * Examples
    * Current Issues List
    * Turn config into singleton
    * Add version to default

Re: Introducing nFlickrViewer: ASP.Net SimpleViewer Remote Admin

It's still not working on IE6.0... SP2. I think there is a problem with flickrviewer generally on IE6.
This doesn't work either.

Re: Introducing nFlickrViewer: ASP.Net SimpleViewer Remote Admin

simpleviewer works fine in IE6, it's flickrviewer that doesn't work.
