Topic: Flickr Tiltviewer display order

I've followed previous posts but just cannot work this out.

I have a tagged SET - EUG7 www flickr com/photos/orcacatlover/tags/eug7/

Which displays in the order I want it to, having edited the date information

In my Tiltviewer show however, it appears in a different order:
www eurythmics me uk/norma/eug7 html

Can anyone explain why there is a difference?

I've gone through all of Flickr sort oiptions to see if i can replciate the order that Tiltviewer is using but cannot

Cheers

Steve

Re: Flickr Tiltviewer display order

TiltViewer uses your Flickr photostream order to determine image order.

Check here for details on how to sort your Flickr photostream: http://blog.edwardmillerphotography.co. … mshifting/

Re: Flickr Tiltviewer display order

Thanks Felix,

I've been through this, and the photostream for each tag on Flickr shows exactly how I need them to, the order however when viewed in Tiltviewer is different.

I just don't get whats happening.  I've used another viewer that reads FLickr stuff in and it is displying in the right order.

If anyone has any other suggestions, please let me know.

Cheers

Re: Flickr Tiltviewer display order

Hi Felix,

I've now thoroughly sorted out the photostream:

Firstly - here's the webpage so you can see exactly what i mean:

www eurythmics me uk/norma index html

I've set up a test link at the bottom of the page which is purely the entire photostream, these images appear in order as they should do, no problem.

The moment in introduce a tag the order goes wrong, so look at the first ten images, then click on the Annie Lennox Miscellaneous heading which is filtered using a TAG and selects the same 10 pictures, but this time the order is totally different.

Any assistance you can give would be much appreciated!

Steve

Re: Flickr Tiltviewer display order

I'm having a similar problem.  The order of my photos in TiltViewer does not match the order of the photos from my flickr photostream if I use tags.

If I comment out the tiltviewer variables tags and tag mode, the order DOES match.

I'd been using tags to keep some of my flickr photos off my tiltviewer.  Basically, I created a tag to give all flickr photos that I want to also show up on tiltviewer.  This does a great job of filtering some flickr photos out of my tiltviewer, but it screws up the order.

Re: Flickr Tiltviewer display order

It's also worth noting that the order on tiltviewer doesn't match the order of photos in a flickr tag-specific photostream.

Again, using my site as an example, I only have one tag in my entire flickr photostream.  I use it to filter certain shots out of my tiltviewer.  The tag is 'twenty200', which is also the name of my site.

If a flickr photo had that tag, it showed up on tiltviewer.  But the order was different between tiltviewer and the flickr photostream for that tag.

Here's an example:

My flickr photostream for the tag twenty200
http://www.flickr.com/photos/jalpuna/tags/twenty200/

My tiltviewer, set to show my flickr photos tagged twenty200
http://twenty200.com/tag/

The order is different.

...just for the record, I'm using tiltviewer pro (1.3, I believe)

My tiltviewer, set to show my flickr photos tagged twenty200

image order is identical here?

It should be identical, but it's totally different.  Not reversed, just somewhat scrambled.

Re: Flickr Tiltviewer display order

Here's what I'm seeing:

On my flickr tag photostream:

On my tiltviewer when I use a tag:

Re: Flickr Tiltviewer display order

when I look at http://www.flickr.com/photos/jalpuna/tags/twenty200/ I get a different image order than your jpg. I get the same order that tiltviewer is using.

does clearing your cache change the image order? If not possibly there is some Flickr global image sort setting you can modify?

Are you sure you're comparing the right links and jpgs?  This stuff gets complex to explain smile

Currently, all of the photos on the first page of my tiltviewer are all tagged with 'twenty200'.  Thus, the order HERE where there is no tag should be the same as the order HERE where I am using a tag.  But the order is different.

If not possibly there is some Flickr global image sort setting you can modify?

Hhhmmm...  I don't believe there's an option in flickr for that, not to mention that the flickr photostream for my tag has the photos in the correct order AS SEEN HERE, whereas my tiltviewer with the tag has a different order (the screen caps)

does clearing your cache change the image order?

Definitely not.

This is an odd behavior I'd noticed for a long time but couldn't figure out the cause of.  As soon as I removed the "tag" option from tiltviewer, the problem was solved (except for the fact that I'd like to be able to use a tag).

Re: Flickr Tiltviewer display order

OK I am seeing a different order at http://twenty200.com/photos/ versus http://twenty200.com/tag/

I am going to say this is a bug in Flickr's API. The request to get the images is exactly the same from both SWFs except for the addition of the tag parameter. For some reason this returns a different image order from Flickr. Unfortunately there is not much I can do to fix this on my end.

Re: Flickr Tiltviewer display order

Is there any other way for me to filter certain photos from my flickr photostream out of my tiltviewer other than by using a tag?

Re: Flickr Tiltviewer display order

this is still a problem, anyone solved it?

Re: Flickr Tiltviewer display order

anyone ?

Re: Flickr Tiltviewer display order

I believe that it is still in flickers court as the API issue.
