PlazesPHPBlog Gets Flickr

The code described here has been moved into Subversion.

I’ve enhanced the original bit of code that I wrote to drop my current Plazes location into a blog sidebar. You can grab the updated version for these additional capabilities:

  • The script now caches the current Plaze every time it’s called; when you go offline, this cached Plaze is reported as your “last known location.”
  • Using a patched version of Addicted to Flickr, the script now looks to see if there are Flickr photos of your current location and displays hyperlinked thumbnails if there are.
  • More comments, less hardcoding.

I’ve upgraded this blog to use this new version, so you see it in operation by looking in the upper right-hand corner here.

Comments welcome.

Great thing! I changed the tagging mechanism of tagging flickr photos a few days ago. Please be sure to search for tags like “plaze{plazehash}” not for “plaze{name}”. With the new tagging schmeme the tags are not that nice but unique.
