Flickr ending Share to WordPress option March 25th

SS St. Paul circa 1900

For the full story: [Official Thread] Welcome back HTML Embeds! Goodbye to some sharing options.

The salient part is:

Secondly, we are announcing that we are deprecating the support for our built-in sharing options for WordPress [Ed: spelled in the original with a small "p"], Blogger and LiveJournal on 3/25. Deprecating features is never an easy decision, but we have seen that all of these services combined are now adding up to less than one percent of daily share volume from Flickr.

Which I understand to mean that this method will no longer be supported: http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/flickr-photos/#blogging-your-photos (link to Internet Archive)

Meantime, the flickr HTML embed option is being brought to the “new flickr experience” in addition to the current iframe embed, which we cannot use here on WordPress.com.

Of course, this does not affect the WP o-embed method of copying and pasting the link of the flickr image page on its own line in your post or page. Or at least I hope not!

Attachment Pages, Images and Carousels! Oh My!

Or: First the WordPress Gallery Had Attachment Pages, Then It Had The Photo Carousel. (But, really, it still has Attachment Pages.)

This is a bit of a “Red Pill/Blue Pill” post and assumes you have a good understanding of the underpinnings of WordPress.com’s image handling and the Gallery feature. Even if you do, you might want to keep headache relief nearby. After going down the rabbit hole, you’ll learn how you can use the Gallery feature to display your single images in the Photo Carousel.

Every image you upload to your WordPress.com site creates a corresponding Attachment page. You can check this out yourself by uploading an image directly to your Media Library and then clicking on the “View” link for that image in the Media Library.
