Flock & Hickr

08 Nov 2005

There are two questions I get asked a lot at the moment, so I thought I’d answer them here, rather than in the FAQs.

Did you do the Flock logo?

No, that was Bryan Bell. I was fortunate to be involved in the early stages of creating the Flock browser theme, and some of that work is still in there, but since starting a large project in June, Bryan has been handling all that too. Its come a long way since then, I might ask Bart if if I can post some of the odd ideas we had at the start.

How did you do the Hickr bit on your site?

This question still bemuses me, as its nothing more than the basic HTML Flickr badge, with a bit of css, but it definitely ranks as the most asked question at the moment.

The javascript is wrapped in a div with the ID of Flickr. Just in case the javascript has recently changed (and adds unwanted ‘stuff’) here it is:

<div id="flickr">
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.flickr.com/badge_code.gne?nsid=yourflickridhere&#038;count=12&#038;display=latest&#038;name=0&#038;size=square&#038;raw=1"></script>
</div>

I manually altered the ‘count’ to get 12 images. Here’s the css I use on that:

/* Flickr */
#flickr img { width: 50px; height: 50px; }
#flickr a { padding: 3px; display: block; float: left;}
#flickr a:hover { background: #ddd; }
