Flickr generator

This dynamic slide generator is available in the PRO version only.

Tutorial

  1. Go to this page on flickr.
  2. Click on Request an API Key.
  3. Choose APPLY FOR A NON-COMMERCIAL KEY.
  4. Give a name, some description to the API, and agree the terms.
  5. Go to the Smart Slider's back-end Global Settings → Flickr generator, and copy out the Callback url.
  6. Open the Edit auth flow for this app link in a new window, because you will need the information from this page.
  7. Paste the Callback URL into here, and click on SAVE CHANGES.
  8. Go back to the Step 6 page (if you closed the page, click on View in the right side under Admin) and copy the Key and Secret.
  9. Paste them to the Smart Slider's back-end Global Settings → Flickr generator. (Make sure, that you don't have any empty space characters in the end or beginning of them.)
  10. Click on Request token, and authorize the linking to your account.
  11. You will see the token appearing in your settings, and you should save on it.
  12. Now the api is done, and you can create a new slider, or use an existing one.
  13. Choose to give dynamic slides to your slider.
  14. Pick one of the Flickr generators.
  15. Set up your generator, choose the settings you think you want, change the number of slides to how many do you want to be in your slider, change the cache expiration to the time you want your slider to look for new data, and if you want to, you can check, what will be on your slides in the record viewer.
  16. Now you can start working on how your slides will look with the datas of the first slide. You can put down layers, and use the VARIABLE signs to put that data inside them, what you want there to be.
  17. If something is not clear, check out how the dynamic slide generators work.
