Flickr Plug-in Issue

Is anybody else having a problem with the Flickr plugin? I just
noticed that my pictures stopped showing up on my blog,
http://www.justhack.com. I’m not sure when that happened. I’m running
the latest trunk, 923. I looked at the plug-in and it appears that
@flickr isn’t getting populated. I would like to know if it’s just me
or is this a problem in general.

Thanks,
Chris

I had that problem for a bit. I would recommend going and getting your
own
flickr API key ( http://www.flickr.com/services/api/key.gne ). I did
that
and replaced the value in the environment.rb file (last line in the
file)
with my key, the flickr photos returned and the prophecy was fulfilled

I think in this case it’s something else; the problem was that I got a
bit eager moving stuff from application.rb to content_controller.rb
and moved something that the aggregator based sidebars depended on
and, because we’d made the mistake of doing:

@flickr =
check_cache(FlickrAggregation, @sb_config[‘feed’] rescue nil

we weren’t even logging the errors.

I wonder if there’s a case for something like:

def evaluate_and_log_error(failure_default = nil)
begin
yield
rescue Exception => e
logger.info e
failure_default
end
end

and replacing all our ‘rescue nil’ entries with something along those
lines.

This works OK for me after upgrading from trunk 923 to 946 - properly,
this
time, with “svn update”.
It also fixed my RSS sidebar problem.
Be sure to completely restart the server to see the changes, as emptying
the
cache did not help.

That shouldn’t be necessary. The API key is, IIRC, a per-product key,
not a per-person key. So using the default key is how Flickr intended
this to work.
