Module Settings

SFS ModuleSettingsThere are only a few module setting options needing adjustment to get Simple Flickr Slideshow up and running.

  • Slideshow Width: Set this to a number value or keep the default 'auto' to automatically seek it's width based on your template (remember, you do not need to add 'px' after your number value).
  • Slideshow Height: Set this to a number value to adjust the height of your slideshow (remember, you do not need to add 'px' after your number value).
  • Top Margin: Adjusting this option +/- will alter the top margin position of SFS (remember, you do not need to add 'px' after your number value).
  • Bottom Margin: Adjusting this option +/- will alter the bottom margin position of SFS (remember, you do not need to add 'px' after your number value).
  • Flickr Photoset No.: Include the Flickr Photoset ID number you wish to use for SFS (this will be a 17 digit number).
  • Auto start slideshow: Yes / No
  • Interval Between Slides: Adjust +/- as needed.
  • Show Navigation Bar: Yes / No


There are four (4) key rules regarding SFS.

    1. In order for SFS to be seen, browser settings must be set to accept Javascript.
    2. The module width, height, top & bottom margin values do not need the 'px' after them.
    3. SFS pulls photos from a 'Photoset' within a Flickr account. Access any Flickr Photoset and the last 17 digits of the URL is the Photoset ID#. Copy/paste this number into the Flickr Photoset No. module option.
    4. Last, make sure you publish and assign it to a module position and an active menu where you want to show SFS.
