Embed slideshow issue - Not Displaying Album Correctly

Jim Lambie says:

Hey all,

I've been working through some functionality issues with the embed slideshow feature. Happy to say that I've finally got it running on my site, the issue now is that it only cycles through 11 images and then the forward arrow disappears. This has happened with two separate albums, so it's not an isolated incident. Has anyone else run across this issue?

Thanks!

I have not been able to find an “embed slide show” option while using Safari on my iPad. There is only an option for embedding an album.

Also, how does one share a slide show on networking sites like Facebook and Twitter? The sharing option on albums also does not provide for sharing a slide show.

I haven't tried share-options on mobile/tablet platform, but in general when we are talking about sharing a slideshow it is sharing an album (at least that's how I understand it and use the terms).
On desktop you are offered sharing an album with some "Embed" html code. It might make sense not to offer this on mobile platforms(?); I doubt many write html while on mobile platforms?

Using Safari on an iPad, one does get the album sharing options of “share”, “embed” and, I think, “BB Code” (Edit: Correction: The third option is “email”). But it is the sharing of a slide-show of the album that I was referring to. Previously, if memory serves me right, if the URL of the album was shared with “/show” attached to it, a slide show could be shared on Facebook.

However, it is not clear how it can be done now.

Okay, that is what you are talking about. Yes, once it was possible to view pretty much every "bundle" of photos on flickr (photostreams, albums, groups, search-results,...) as a slideshow by post-fixing url with a "/show". It's a pitty we don't have that option anymore. Though it might still unofficially have been an option on Flickr until Flash was completely killed recently (I don't know, I haven't had flash installed in years), it was officially killed by Flickr years ago (2015 I believe). But that's not the subject Jim is talking about in this thread (as far as I understand).

Hi there,

No, my issue is that the embedded slideshow ends at the eleventh image. There are many more images than that in the album.

Anyone else experience this?

Jim Lambie:

At the end of the previous thread (mentioned by mcnod), Katie seemed to be saying that Ryan from the Flickr team was discussing this new issue with you. Are you saying that is not the case?

Could you point us to the site where your slideshow is embedded, and also point us to the Flickr album(s) that are affected?
