Can't get Slide.Show to work with Flickr

Jun 28, 2008 at 8:21 AM
Here is my configuration.xml code.

<configuration width="500" height="380" background="Transparent" windowless="True">
 <modules>
  <module type="SlideViewer">
   <option name="bottom" value="0"/>
        <option name="slideImage.stretch" value="Uniform" />   
  </module>
    <module type="ProgressBar" />
    <module type="SlideDescription">
        <option name="visibility" value="collapsed" />
    </module>
    <module type="NavigationTray">
           <option name="slideShowNavigation.enablePlayOnLoad" value="true" />
           <option name="visibility" value="collapsed" />
           <option name="background" value="Transparent" />
           <option name="albumViewer.background" value="Transparent" />
          <option name="slideShowNavigation.loopAlbum" value="true" />
    </module>
 </modules>
  <transitions>
      <transition type="ShapeTransition" name="CircleOutTransition" />
   </transitions>
   <dataProvider type="FlickrDataProvider">
      <option name="userName" value="me"/> 
   </dataProvider>
</configuration>

I always get a javascript error and the slideshow doesnt start.  Is there anything else that needs to be updated to make this work?
Please be as specific as possible.


Thanks in advance,
Danny

1.  make sure that in value="me" that "me" is replaced with a real FLICKR username
2. make sure that the your js slide.show js includes the flickr data provider

Does the FlickrDataProvider come already by default in the slideshow.js file?
After looking at it I did find this string in .js file, "XmlDataProvider|FlickrDataProvider|albums|getPhotos|buildImageUrl|..."
Is that what you were referring to in your second point?


Thanks,
Danny
