Author: Donncha O Caoimh
Version: 0.1

If you use Flickr to host your photos this plugin will import the comments from your Flickr stream into your blog. Configure it by entering the RSS feed on Flickr’s recent activity page in the box provided.

Usage and Restrictions

  • Your posts must have the same name as the Flickr photo. For example, The Thieving Duck blog post matches The Thieving Duck on Flickr. It’s ok to have multiple Flickr photos with the same name as one blog post.
  • You can’t import all your old comments. It will only work with whatever Flickr puts in it’s comment feed which is the last ten comments.
  • Your comments are imported when you’re doing stuff in your WordPress backend and placed into the moderation queue. Make sure you login to WordPress often if you have a busy Flickr stream!
