1.08.2 HOT FIX – for those having problems with Fancybox etc.

myFlickr – powerful Joomla Content Plugin for easy and painless flickr integration.




* All about code cleanliness (no more unnecessary whitespaces)
* css file loads only when needed (always before)

FOR JOOMLA 1.5 USERS: After several requests I’ve released “new” legacy version with cache support added. Enjoy.

What’s new ?

* Caching!
Simple, but effective caching system of Flickr API responses provides at least 100x faster code execution than before – literally ( Code execution per gallery reduced by from ~0,7 sec. to 0,002 sec. ) Several galleries in one article shouldn’t be a problem any more.
Important Note: Make sure that folder /plugins/content/myFlickr/myFlickr/cache is writable – it is necessary for cache function to work properly.

* No more support for Joomla 1.5 and 1.6 – code has been reduced and tailored specifically for Joomla 1.7

* Minor tweaks and fixes (also in myFlickr Editor Button)
