For people who aren’t used to working with HTML or customizing their Tumblr themes, don’t worry, I have tried to make embedding your Flickr photo stream into this theme as easy as possible.
There are two ways of doing this. You’re going to need your Flickr ID for both of them, so let’s get that first. This is east to get a hold of, just go to idgetter and follow the one instruction there is.
For example, my Flickr username is bschaeffer, so correctly getting my Flickr ID will look like this on the idgetter page:
New Way (Version 3 or later)
id copied, go to your Customize screen from your dashboard and click Apperance. Find the input that says Flickr ID and paste your
id into it. Click Save and your Flickr photos will show up in your header.
Old Way (Version 2 or earlier)
Of course, you’re going to want to replace
your_id with the
id you got from idgetter, leaving the single quotes there. You want to place that somewhere under the
hideFollows(x); code. You can find it near the top of theme file.
The last step to is insert the Flickr
<div> element. Here’s the code for that:
You can place that code inside the header or the footer. Look for these markers inside the HTML and they will tell you where you should place the code. Here’s what it looks like (full size here):
Again, there is a spot in both the header and the footer that have these comments.
And with that you can save the changes. The end result, if you’ve done it the way I described, should look exactly like this:
Again, I did it this way to try make it as easy as possible to add your Flickr stream to your site. I have already set up the styles so that it will fit the look of theme, so it really is as easy as copying and pasting.
If you have any questions at all, or this does not seem to be working for you, please feel free to contact me. You can find a link to my email on this page.
