I just installed Josh Gerdes’ SimpleFlickr Plugin to display Chinese restaurant photos from Flickr and it was breathtakingly easy. When I saw the line of code I was suppose to drop into the page, I thought, “Is that it? That can’t be it.” It took maybe 10 minutes and it comes back with this beautiful interface (takes a few seconds to load, but it’s worth it).
About 2.5 years ago, I randomly created a group called Chinese Restaurants on Flickr, and didn’t check in on it again. (I don’t think I even uploaded any files). Last week, I checked and found that people had uploaded over 600 photos. But it had become rather random (“My General Tso’s chicken in Iowa” type thing. Another user named “ribarnica” created a more specialized group, Chinese Restaurant Signs, writing, “I just created a new group for Chinese Restaurant Signs. It will be a little more specialized, so that I won’t keep mucking up your group with my photos of signs.” Interestingly, those types of exterior shots is what I had intended from the beginning.
