That problem when I go to write a blog and end up writing code to implement new functionality I want for the post. 0 Related 9 thoughts on “That problem when I go to write a blog and end up …” wp_digest August 25, 2014 at 10:04 pm RT @AndrewFerguson: That problem when I go to write a blog and end up writing code to implement new functionality I want for the post. #Wor… Ian Littman August 26, 2014 at 7:36 am What did you implement? SingleFocusApp August 26, 2014 at 7:52 am @AndrewFerguson @wp_digest maybe you should single focus 😉 Andrew Ferguson August 26, 2014 at 9:03 am I have some code that I’ve been using for years that let’s me use shortcodes to easily insert Flickr photos into my blog posts in a style that I like (see https://andrewferguson.net/2014/08/25/the-seafair-air-show/ for an example). It’s always been on a per-a-picture basis, which gets tedious if I want to include lots of pictures. So I added some functionality to let me add an entire Flickr Set. Of course, I also had to update the phpFlickr library and move some stuff around and clean up the code. It’s not terribly pretty, but it works quite well for my needs: https://github.com/fergbrain/fergcorp_flickr-shortcode Ian Littman August 26, 2014 at 9:46 am You should take that Flickr key out of version control 🙂 Otherwise, I’ll give that one a solid “hey, that works”. And as an added bonus, I can understand what the code is doing by looking at it. Andrew Ferguson August 26, 2014 at 12:24 pm Yea…I thought about that. I just did it, thanks for the reminder.
