I have flickrservice working but I can't get it to organize by tags or sets. It only works with the user I put in photos taken by. Has anyone fixed this bug yet?

I ask because I want multiple galleries on a site organized by sets. All I get when I try to use this function is

"Sorry, either no photos exist or I could not connect to Flickr.
Flickr error message: Photoset not found"

I can see when my server sends the request to flickr API and it responds back with a fail. Guess I will try to find the bug if I can.

Ok I figured it out. You HAVE to use the photoset numeric value in the URL when looking at the photoset in Flickr. I was using the name thinking the key and the actual name would suffice but it does not.

Tag does not work because a bug in FlickrGallery.php

In the function FlickrPhotos() in case 2 you need to change

$photos = $flickr->getPhotos($this->Tags, NULL, $this->NumberToShow, $page, $this->Sortby);


$photos = $flickr->getPhotos($this->Tags, $this->User, $this->NumberToShow, $page, $this->Sortby);

Now it will properly Sort by tag for your user and not every frigging tag on Flickr
