THIS PLUGIN DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE. I doubt I’ll be updating it any time soon.
Playing around with my new Picasa Web access, I found the RSS feeds quite nice. So I made a widget for them.
Picasa Web Widget
Basically it puts a slideshow of photo thumbnails from one or more Picasa Web RSS feeds into your sidebar. You can click them to go to the photo’s page on Picasa Web. Uses divs and names and all that good CSS stuff to make styling them easy, if you want.
Update: Version 1.1 actually works now.
Update: Version 1.2 now has four additional options. Now you can:
-Limit how many images will be rotated through.
-Display more than just the one image.
-Control whether or not the images are shown in a random order.
The image rotation script has also been corrected to work in both IE and Firefox (and probably others as well).
Update: Version 1.3 adds Brian’s fix for filenames with unusual characters in them being in your web album.
Update: Version 1.4
- Output will now validate as valid XHTML. Should work all the time. Important note: Use the class for CSS styling of anything, the ID is only there when you are only showing one image.
- Added the ability to display descriptions below the thumbnail. It even works with rotating images.
- Fixed the case where you are showing multiple images in a non-random order.
Update: Version 1.5 – Corrected a problem where it would only show the last feed when you give it multiple feeds.
