oEmbed is a convenient way to add a variety of external content to WordPress posts and pages. By default WordPress only insert the image for Flickr oEmbeds, without a link back to the photo page or any other information. This plugin uses the oEmbed output that WordPress already collects, linking the Flickr image using the supplied URL and adding a caption with title and author if desired.
By default the plugin inserts standard captioned photos, with the photo title and author below the photo. This includes a snippet of inline style, which some people don’t like.
To configure the captions, go to Settings:oEmbed FlickrLinkr.
The Standard caption option displays the oEmbedded Flickr photo just like a standard WordPress captioned image, using exactly the same CSS classes and inline style. The Simple caption option just gets rid of the inline style and wp-caption classes from the inserted code. You can also remove the caption entirely, just leaving a linked photo. Note that just linking may not satisfy the attribution requirements of some photo licenses.
For Standard and Simple captions you can specify a class for the container div.
You can specify a class for the image itself, useful if you want to add a border, padding, etc.
Updating your settings clears the oEmbed cache, so all of your existing Flickr oEmbeds will change to the new setting.
