Use WordPress.com’s Flickr Widget with Zooomr

Filed under: Photos, WordPress.com — Hogg @ 7:10 pm

I did a little experiment today, and it worked.

On WordPress.com‘s FAQ blog, there was a post explaining how to use the Flickr widget. So, I tried following the directions except replacing Flickr with Zooomr, and sure enough, it worked.

It seems like the widget will work with any photo feed, not just Flickr’s. All non-Flickr users, rejoice!

So now you can view the photos I upload to Zooomr right there on my sidebar.

  2. You might like to use other plugin – Zooomrrss. And you can easily customize it.

  3. The only problem with that is that I can’t use any regular WordPress plugins on WordPress.com. Oh well, guess I should pony up the money for my own hosting.

  4. A few questions from a blog idiot

    How do you keep the spammers from eating you alive? i\’ve seen blogs with nothing but spam postings.

    How do you keep some left wing extremist from posting racist or defamatory rhetoric? and if you cant stop them, what are you legally liabel when they do?

    can viruses be posted to blogs?

  5. […] did a little searching, and apparently Hogg discovered this way back in December. Maybe the developers should make it clearer that the widget supports sites […]
