Flikr photos in admin

This plugin does almost what we need


It should be simplified.

The goal is to insert flickr images into blog posts with as little pain as possible.

  1. Remove all gallery and slideshow features, associated templates, scripts, controls, etc. Leave only an option to insert a single photo.
  1. Change from inserting a shortcode to inserting a/img tags into the post.
  1. Add an option for the link to be: Flickr page/Large img/none.
  1. Change the default number of photos showing in the admin to 20. There is more than one place in the code to change it, beware.
  1. Remove Delete function and the code behind it.
  1. Add a link to flickr, target=_blank
  1. Remove "Enable viewer" in the config and flickr manager.
  1. Remove Everyone and Upload tabs from the flickr manager screen.
  1. Not sure what Albums tab does. It always shows an empty dropdown even if there are sets in the account. Double check. If it should show sets then keep it, we'll fix it later. If it shows something else then I'd kill it.
  1. Check if search works. It didn't work for me. I'd kill it.
  1. Make sure the images are showing sorted, latest first. The user is most likely to be interested in inserting something very recent.
  1. Retain the size and alignment controls, transfer them to a/img using the same class names as now.
  1. Drop references to the old jquery. Use the one we already have.

In the end, it should be a much smaller plugin that does just one thing: helps to insert a single photo from flickr into a page or a post.

Update the acknowledgements in readme.txt and flick a message to the guy behind the git fork to let him know.

  1. Remove the link to the photo on flicker to allow wrapping the image in an <a> tag
