iNove theme looks great with WordPress 2.7. Recently I changed my blog to this theme and customization was way too easy and simple. While changing the theme, I also integrated my blog with Flickr photos. You can see that
page here. I have been getting a number of mail enquiries on how to set it up. Hence I am writing this post to help all those who are planning to integrate flickr photos with iNove.
With my old theme, FAlbum plugin was of great help but that doesn’t seem to work after wordpress 2.5+. I really liked the options with FAlbum. Since that is not working anymore, I am using Flickr Photo Album plugin by Joe Tan. Follow these simple steps to get flickr photos on your wordpress blog:
1. Download the Flickr Photo Album plugin.
2. Locate the following file in your local directory ..\tantan-flickr\templates\photoalbum-index.php
In this php file edit the following line of code from
`<div id=”content” class=”narrowcolumn”>`
`<div id=”main” class=”narrowcolumn”>`
3. Save the file.
4. Upload tantan-flickr folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
5. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
6. Configure the plugin in the ‘Options’ (or ‘Settings’) screen by following the onscreen prompts
This should help you to show up your flickr photos on WordPress blog. Incase if you are still not able to get it working, you should create a static page with the name ‘Photos’ with page parent set to ‘main’ page and page template set to ‘default template’. Even after that if you are unable to get this going, share your questions here I shall try to answer them.
Update : Some of you might have faced mis-alignment issues with IE6. Follow the steps mentioned below only if required.
Step # 1. In the style.css of iNove theme, copy the below mentioned code and paste right after #main ending.
padding:5px 15px 10px;
Step # 2. Save style.css
Step # 3. Edit ..\tantan-flickr\templates\photoalbum-index.php file to change the div name to ‘flickrmain’ instead of previously set ‘main’ – this was originally described in this post.
Thats it. You should be all set to see photos on Internet Explorer 6 (IE6) as well without any mis-alignment. 🙂
