Live Flickr Comments Importer

A quick note for those who follow my blog but not the SANIsoft blog. The WordPress Plugin to import comments from your Flickr Photos into your WordPress posts is now listed at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/live-flickr-comment-importer/ and the plugin home page is at http://www.sanisoft.com/blog/2009/12/15/wordpress-plugin-live-flickr-comment-importer/

Bug reports, feature request and patches most welcome

Testing Flickr Comment Import plugin

Yesterday I hacked a plugin which allows importing of comments from Flickr into a WordPress post, however I am not releasing this iteration of the plugin because

  1. It does not really use the Flickr API but the recent activity RSS feed
  2. It involves the WordPress user entering a custom field called flickr_ID which should have the value of the picture ID on Flickr
  3. It is hooked to the admin_head – which means that comments are imported only when I do something in the WordPress Admin

Thus I am not releasing this version – the next version will try to solve the above three issues and I will release that. Meanwhile if you go to this photo on Flickr and comment, the comment will show up on this post in a while
