Cool Twitter Graphics

A few months ago, I was searching cool Twitter badges on the Interweb and came across this website. Randa Clay has some very nice Twitter graphics over there. I downloaded all of those that have a transparent background and added them to my Twitter set on Flickr. If you’re looking for some original Twitter badges, that’s the place to go.

You can see one of Randa’s Twitter graphics in the sidebar of this blog.

How to create embeddable Flickr slideshows

I just read on RWW that Flickr finally released an easy way to embed slideshows to your website or blog.

Well, I didn’t wait for Flickr to create such a feature as I have been adding my own Flickr slideshows to my blogs for quite a bit.

I can’t remember where I found out about this method but here is how it works. Basically, there are 2 ways to do it:

<iframe align=center src=http://www.flickr.com/slideShow/index.gne?user_id=YOURUSERIDHERE
&tags=YOURTAGHEREframeBorder=0 width=500 scrolling=no height=500>
</iframe>
There is also another method but I found it to be a little weak and not working all the time…
<object type=”text/html” data=”http://www.flickr.com/slideShow/index.gne?user_id=YOURUSERIDHERE
&tags=YOURTAGHERE&” width=”500″ height=”500″> </object>

Other parameters include:

  • contacts=
  • text=
  • tag_mode=
  • favorites=
  • group_id=
  • frifam=
  • nsid=
  • single=
  • firstIndex=
  • set_id=
  • firstId=
You can see my method in action at the bottom of this post.
I haven’t tried Flickr slideshow feature yet but it seems the process would be easier with their method.
