Get Flickr Galleries from URLs with jQuery

Posted in "development"


I find that I sometimes want to embed a set of images that someone hasn't created a gallery for. You can actually see a slide show of them (example: jQuery Bowling Awesomeness!) but there isn't a way to embed/share that view.. until now. I've created a quick little plugin that grabs the set id and username from a url and then creates the slideshow that gets embedded.

Optional Settings

Example

<div class="wrap"><iframe style="width: 100%; height: 400px" src="http://jsfiddle.net/darcyclarke/dnUyg/1/embedded/result" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" frameborder="0"></iframe><span>Fork this Fiddle</span></div>
