Step-by-step guide - updated May 2017

There are various ways of adding a gallery to Content Publisher. This method was tested as working in May 2017 and works well with original images of varying sizes.
It uses a combination of methods from the previous notes below. NB Flickr no longer uses the concept of 'sets' they are now called 'albums'. 

  1. First check you can upload the images into Flickr
  2. Upload them into a new album
  3. Use the Organiser to arrange the pics and bulk add descriptions then save.
  4. Go to the list of albums and click on the album you have just created
  5. Look at the URL of the album. It will be like this: https://www.flickr.com/photos/uniofbath/albums/72157681301639570
    C
    opy the long number at the end of your URL. If you click on an individual image in the album, the same number will appear in the URL like this : in/album-72157681301639570/
  6. Add the code block below to the Content Publisher field, replacing the long number after /albums/ with the number you copied above. Edit the width and height settings as needed. 732/411 gives a standard 16:9 gallery.  

  7. Preview your gallery. In particular, check it shows all the images from your album and only your album.

As long as you get the embed code while viewing in the album then the embed code will be for that album, no matter which image in that album you are viewing on Flickr.
