Just a goofy little thing you can put on your profile page (or blog or wherever). The neat part is that it will automatically update itself every hour so it is always up-to-date.

Looks very nice indeed.

How is the Explore figure calculated, though? Scout says I have 11, whilst this application claims I have 19. I know there is a lag on Scout, but wonder how this application can seemingly see things it doesn't.

Thanks.

See, you guys are great. The code now generates a link to your flickr photos. I fixed the Explore number, there was a little wonkiness there.

Different background colors is on the way... any other ideas? Different shapes (maybe a vertical version?) Other information you want on it?
physical earth [deleted] 12 years ago
I love the idea of changing the length/number of images. And vertical would be really cool.

Thanks again fd
LoveLeLisa 12 years ago
this is FANTABULOUS!!! i think a vertical version would be wonderful also. what about choosing photos by tags?

sorry for this newbie question, but how is a photo deemed interesting? is it by the number of views?

Thanks FD! You're my hero!!

Color choices are in.

Kaptain Kobold 12 years ago
Different shapes would be good - a really narrow (or small) version for those of us whose blog sidebars aren't too big would be excellent.

Thanks for all the work, by the way.

Simply great - thanks.

When I paste the HTML into my profile though - it defaults to black text on black background as shown above in Math_Paul's example.

Flickr seems to be changing the & in the code to something else when I save the profile - don't know if that's what's causing it.

What a great idea! I like it a lot!

I like the circles... but it would be cool to have the option to change them... like for the person who suggested squares. I also like all the ideas of the option to have it vertical, choosing a tag or how many pictures... I like it the way it is (minus the silly little default to black thing that I'm experiencing with everyone else), but it's always great to have options. :-)

Thanks for all your great stuff!
Roger Lynn PRO 12 years ago
Very fun idea - thanks

It would be cool if there were links associated with each of the circles - i.e. click on the "photos" circle and it takes you to my photos, click on the "explore" circle and it shows you which of my pictures is in Explore, etc.

The black background some of you were getting by default is odd. It shouldn't be possible. James, what web browser are you using?

Regardless, I think I've fixed it. If you're getting a white background now but you didn't want that you'll need to use the Profile Widget again to generate new code.

FlyButtafly PRO Posted 12 years ago. Edited by fd (admin) 12 years ago
This is super cool! Though I was wondering - if you choose random, do the photos change when it updates? (Also I thought it was odd/interesting - the photos that showed up when I grabbed the code are different than the ones that show up in it when I paste the code - but the same ones show up whereever I paste it.)

FlyButtafly. Get yours at flagrantdisregard.com/flickr

I too would love a vertical option. :)
admin
fd 12 years ago
If you choose random the photos will update about once an hour. They're different because it's regenerated each time you do a preview but only once an hour when you paste it.

One more bug squashed. Text colors weren't working right but now (cross fingers) they should be. Peggy, that'll probably fix it for you.

Keep in mind, folks, once you PASTE the code into your profile, it WILL NOT update again for an hour. So even if you go back and change colors and paste new code, the new colors from the new code will not take effect until that hour passes. So, it may look like newly pasted code isn't working, but it will when the hour elapses.

zen PRO 12 years ago
Thanks again, John! If you're looking for suggestions, i have a few even though they aren't ones that would make or break my use or appreciation:

Check boxes to choose which stats that would show (# of photos, # in explore, # of contacts, # of sets, # of groups adminned, member since date - like member since Oct 2005, the kind of camera used (related to the most recent of course), or none).

Check box to display stats in round, square, rounded square or other design and perhaps in a line along the bottom.

For people who will be using the banner outside Flickr, the option for the Flickr Logo to appear (unless that's a copyright issue). Also the ability to click on one of the photos and to go to that photo. The Photos stat would click-thru to the photostream, the explore stat would clickthru to your Scout for that person, the name to go to their profile (for non-Flickr banner use), the rest you can imagine...

The flagrantDisregard.com area should click-thru to your site.

2 other sizes of photos (with a lessening number of them)

The ability to write our own search/tag criteria for photos (such as "most recent photos tagged with 'FDBanner' and 'abstract').

Just some thoughts for ya man in case you felt like you had nothing better to do than to create wonderful toys for us!!

fd 12 years ago
I only save one copy of the profile widget for each user no matter how many different versions you might want to make. I may change that in the future but that's the way it works now. That version is saved for an hour after you paste the code anywhere. I'm virtually certain this is the cause of the problems you're having. Here's what you should do: remove the code from your profile and wherever else you might have it. Generate new code that has the new colors you like. Paste that wherever you want.

You won't see the change immediately where you paste it. The change won't take effect for about an hour. But eventually, it will look like the preview you generate on the flickr toys site.

I love this little toy, and I made one for my profile. It was cool, then I thought I would like to see it update, so I added a contact, and did not see the number change. I then realized it was updated every hour. So, then I got to thinking I would like to have different pictures on it. I went back to toys, made a new one, and when I try to replace the old one with the new version. The old one always shows up. I have deleted the old one, saved the change, re-opened my profile from scratch and pasted in the new one only to have it show up as the old one AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAh. What do I do?
weavingmajor 12 years ago
what a fun toy, I love it as much as... well, as much as all the rest of your toys. I'd love an option to have the bar WITHOUT the stat circles at all, and/or just have the number of photos... ;o) Thanks so much for more fun!
rt44man PRO 12 years ago
Ok, perhaps I was too hasty. Now that it has updated the numbers the pictures have changed to the lastest version I posted. I guess I can not change the look of it with in the same hour as I originally posted the first one. Ok. Well cool toy.

Just a couple of updates. You can now opt-out of the Explore statistic if you want to. Also, up until now, everyone only had one version of their widget no matter where they put it. Now you can make as many different widgets as you like, all with different colors and options and put them wherever. That should eliminate the problem many of you were having with colors not updating and allows you to put widgets in different places with different background colors.
