WordPress Plugin Needed

No Gravatar

This will be of absolutely no interest to most of you. I’m putting out this request here so that someone in the blogging game (there’s that word  again) might see it and respond.

I want a plugin that will take all of the images from a WordPress.org post and UPLOAD it to Flickr. I want the pluging to create a Flickr set with the title of the post, load the images from the post into it and apply the tags that I’ve added to the images. This seems like an obvious idea for a plugin to me, but I can’t find one that does it.

If you know of one, let me in on it: jan@messersmith.name

    Good luck on your plug-in search! Seems to be all plug-ins for the wrong direction for you!

    would this work?

    Steven, it’s a Many-Spotted Sweetlips (Plectorhinchus chaetodonoides).

    And, yeah, he has an attitude.

  4. Steve Goodheart Says:

    What a great name! Of course, with that name, you gotta be a tough guy (like a boy named Sue!) 🙂 🙂

  5. MadDog Says:

    Thanks, Willie.

    Yeah, it would probably work, but what I’m looking for is a WordPress pluging that saves me the work of tagging the photos again in a separate program and then uploading to Flickr. I’m waiting to see if someone is smart enough to write a plugin with button that says “Send all images to Flickr set ________” and all of the images in that post will be uploaded to Flicker, put into the set I name (the title of the post could be the ‘default set name’) and tag the images with the same tags I’ve used in the Media tags.

    Sounds like it should be a popular plugin. Thanks for your suggestion. I may try it out to see if it saves me any time. A plugin would sure be nice, though.

    Try growing up with the name Jan. I still have scars on my hands from popping guys who called me “Janice”. I now make a point of pronouncing it like “Yahn”.

  7. Steve Goodheart Says:

    Whoa, I never thought of that! All the Jans I knew growing up were big Swedish dudes you’d ever call “Janice,” believe me! I guess kids learned the hard way with you 🙂 ….I used to hate how merciless kids could be, with names, with appearance….the “pack” can be ruthless with the weak and the different….

    Worth checking out:

    Thanks for that, Robert. I don’t know how I missed it.

    On my test post it published all of the text along with the image. That’s okay, but if I have six images in a post all the text of the post will go up with each image. That’s not a problem and I think there is a setting to turn it off. I’ll have to check and see.

    You helped me with something that’s been bugging me for a while. That ‘wee dram’ is waiting for you in Madang, as is a boat ride on Faded Glory.

    Glad to hear its working for you.
    Looking forward to getting “closure” on our social exchange!

    Hi !
    I´m a german student and going to be in madang from 04.august till 18.december!
    can you tell me some information where i can dive in madang?!


  12. MadDog Says:

    Hi Angela.

    There is a dive shop at the Madang Resort Hotel. It is the only commencial dive shop in town. However, if you’re going to be staying for that length of time, we’d consider you a “local”, so you’d be welcome to dive with me and my friends on my boat Faded Glory. Please contact me at jan@messersmith.name if you’re interested.

    Flicker is really great when sharing photos over friends and families. I love the resize feature of Flickr.:*.

  14. MadDog Says:

    Thomas Morris, I suspect that you are either a robot or a moron, possibly both. Your comment is not germane to my post.

  15. Robert Says:


    Thanks for that…. I just learned a new word: germane.


  16. MadDog Says:

    Robert, I just throw those fancy words in so that people will be duped into thinking that I might know what I’m talking about. Sometimes it even works. I even occasionally use a semicolon. Kurt Vonnegut warned against them. I quote: “Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you’ve been to college.”

    He also said, “Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand.” I love that one.
