Topic: Multiple Flickr Accounts

Hey people,

I am trying to pull photos from multiple accounts...

//FLICKR GALLERY OPTIONS
// To use images from Flickr, uncomment this block
fo.addVariable("useFlickr", "true");
fo.addVariable("user_id", "34306176@N00");   //example
fo.addVariable("user_id", "48508968@N00");   //example
fo.addVariable("showTakenByText", "true");   

The problem is when I try this it only loads the photos in the last account. Does anyone know a work around or if this is possible?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: Multiple Flickr Accounts

The only thing that I can think to try is to pull the images into a javascript array from the different flicker accounts and feed that array the the xml data path as a dynamically created xml using document.write.

Re: Multiple Flickr Accounts

Thanks for the idea miker.

I'm not really all that good with js. I'm new to Flickr too... I just noticed the group feature and if everyone post photos to that one group I think using a group_id in place of user_id will be easier.

I was hoping it would be as easy as this...

//FLICKR GALLERY OPTIONS
// To use images from Flickr, uncomment this block
fo.addVariable("useFlickr", "true");
fo.addVariable("group_id", "39006371@N08");
//fo.addVariable("tags", "jump,smile");
fo.addVariable("tag_mode", "all");
fo.addVariable("showTakenByText", "true");

A next page arrow pops up but thats it. Is anyone successfully using the group_id?

I pull this off of Flickrs API list.
group_id (Optional)
The id of a group who's pool to search. If specified, only matching photos posted to the group's pool will be returned.

simple but annoying solution is two galleries one for each account.

TiltViewer does not support group ids.
