Photoblog theme? 
13th-Dec-2008 11:00 am
I have a new URL (http://paulsphotos.org/) that currently redirects to my Flickr photos but I'd like to set up a "best of" blog (kind of a photo a day blog like the excellent Daily Dose of Imagery site, although I expect mine will be weekly).

I'd like to use WordPress just because I'm used to configuring and adminstering it, so I'm looking for a photoblog theme; I really like this Polaroid theme but I want one that links to photos on Flickr - I don't want to upload pics twice.

Any recommendations?

Update: The site (http://paulsphotos.org/) is now up; thanks for the help!

You should be able to do what you want with the Flickr API Key and some php hacking.

That sounds like hard work :)
A good techie always tries to find the easiest route, especially if someone has done it before ... and I've got to believe this has been done before.

Pffft! What's a little php copy & pasting!? :P

I am pretty sure that there are php plug-ins that will also work... if/when I locate 'em, I will paste 'em to this post. :)

P.S. Once you get the API key, it appears to be plug and play from there on out. :D

or you could just add a WP blog into your flickr acc't ... (it's already there .. just checked)

D'oh! I have that set up so I can post to LJ - I wonder if it'll let me post the Large photos and not just Small/Thumbnail size pics?

The largest it will post is 500x on one line


(not sure if that link will work)

Nope, doesn't. Just go to Blogs and click "layout" instead of settings. That's were you can configure size posted

Woohoo! That works! Thanks!

So now I just need to grab that Polaroid theme...

OK, we're almost there... :)

I think I have a new photoblog! Woot!
