Works good but

Posted on 05 February 2016

It does all it's supposed to do but sync with Flickr is a no go.
In order to sync it with Flickr you need to turn off Joomla cache.

Ease of use

Very easy to setup and use.


Support gets back to you quickly.


You really don't need to read documentation as it is quite easy to setup.

Value for money

The price is fair for what it does.

I used this to: A client
Owner's reply: First of all thanks you Vincent Gabriele for writing your review. We highly appreciate it that you took the time and effort.

I’d like to take the opportunity to elaborate on the Joomla cache and the Flickr Suite. In particular the Flickr Suite Content plugin, as that is the only Flickr Suite extension that is affected by the Joomla Cache.

Like any other Joomla content plugin, the Flickr Suite content plugin is affected by the Joomla cache. As long as the Joomla cache is switched on and there is a valid Joomla cache record for the article or module in which the plugin is used, the plugin will not be called by Joomla and hence the plugin cannot update the photos.

However, by default Joomla cache records are only valid for 15 minutes. That means that after those 15 minutes the Joomla cache will be refreshed and Joomla will call the plugin. The plugin will subsequently refresh the photos in the article.

Whether the plugin will load new results from Flickr depends on the cache setting of the plugin. To speed up loading times, the plugin has its own cache and can also fetch results from the more extensive Flickr Suite Component cache.

By default the plugin will first check the cache of the Flickr Suite Component (when the component is installed), then check its own cache for valid result and then fetch new results from Flickr. This can be changed to checking only the plugin cache or fetching results directly from Flickr. The times span for which the results in the Flickr Suite plugin cache are valid can also be changed.

We hope this explains the behaviour of the Flickr Suite extensions in combination with the Joomla cache a bit. In case you have questions about the Flickr Suite extensions and/or the cache behaviour, please contact us. We’ll be more than happy to answer your questions!


Lovely. The viewer shows the photo's beautifully, whether it's on a phone or on a desktop screen.

Ease of use

Once installed, the ease of use is great. Getting the Flickr API key and activating the additional necessary plugin is well documented.


Super friendly and fast (and multilingual, too!), very effective, I even got a tweak I requested in no time.



Value for money

Worth every penny.

I used this to: I've been using Flickr for a lot longer than Joomla, so an easy way to display any selection from my thousands of photo's on the three websites I maintain is wonderful.


This Flickr plugin does what the developer says and the reviews are spot-on. A great way to select and display your public/private photos.

Ease of use

Using the plug-in couldn't be easier. However, beginners need to pay attention to the excellent documentation on Flickr APIs.


Support: 100%, and the developer even went to the trouble of tweaking the code to enable a function I particularly needed - immediately.


Detailed, clear, comprehensive documentation.

Value for money

Excellent value for money. I strongly recommend this plug-in.

I used this to: The Flickr Suite Content Plugin is perfect for selecting and displaying tagged photos (both private and public) on your site. I use it on my blog and am able to display slideshows, large, medium and small images, one-offs, sets, in any way I want. Using tags with sets also works!

Making the best connection with flickr with this extension and the support off this team is excellent!

Nice component, easy to use, and a nice helpfull supportdesk. Worth the price.

My client, a big tennisclub, is using this component for private Flickr-sets, they don't want their pictures of their children free on the internet. This component did the job, and on my clients behalf the developer is going to make it possible to put the built-in download-function for high-resolution behind a login. Chapeau!


Excellent plugin

Posted on 19 March 2014

This is a fantastic way for my clients to display photos on their website. No more having to talk them through resizing and uploading, or worrying about GB of disk space being used. Now they just upload to Flickr and insert the shortcode into the article where they need it.

I had some problems getting it working, but the developer responded immediately and fixed the problem within a couple of hours.

Highly recommended.

Great extension!

great plugin, it works in all! Much better than the other extensions I've tried! The support is really excellent, I had problems setting which were promptly resolved in less than 24 h from the developers! Great!

great plugin and support

Posted on 03 September 2013

Perfect plugin. Simple to install but nevertheless a clear installation instructions.

Websites like Flickr, Twitter or Facebook regularly change their APIs or other issues. In my case it appeared that Flickr added an additional number to new users so the plugin did not show my portfolio. After I presented the problem to the developer (Jasper), it was solved immediately. I wish every developer has this kind of support.

This plugin is an absolute must. Firstly, because of the simplicity but beautiful display and secondly the great support.

This is by far the best extension I have used.

1. Very easy to install (5 min)

2. The install instructions are very detailed with screen shots

3. I received super quick support even before I purchased the product.

4. After installing and setting up, it works perfectly and I'm still a novice at Joomla.

Highly recommend this extension

Thanks Jasper.
