This plugin would be fine for displaying a Flickr gallery in an article but is only a plugin. I needed to be able to display it in a module position and then use the random image to display one image every page load. A shame really, don't make the same mistake.

Hi,

Thanks for your review! I realize it's pretty late to answer it ;) but still it maybe helpful for another myFlickr users:

As of Joomla 1.6 you are able to run almost any plugin in Module position. Just use Custom HTML module and be sure that "Prepare Content" option is "on".

In fact you are able to to that also in Joomla 1.5

There several modules for Joomla! 1.5 designed specifically to run plugin contents in module positions. E.g. Search for "Plugin in module" on JED.

Hope this might be helpful for some of you.

SP Facebook
I downloaded the SF facebook module specifically to use the activity feed. After playing around with it for ages I couldn't get it to work. In the end out of desperation I tried to hack the code to get it to work. By looking at the plugin it's based on I realised that it was missing the script element it needs to run. Why the dev didn't know this I don't know or perhaps I'm doing something wrong. So if you are having similar issues then just go to activity feed on fb: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/activity/ and copy the first line into activity_feed.php and it should work just fine. Naturally you need ftp to do this.
