New blog feature - Flickr photos in the sidebar

February 13, 2009

This blog now pulls in Flickr photo(s) to the sidebar. I also parametrized a bunch of previously hardwired numbers. It's not perfect yet (simplejson doesn't like the JSON feeds from Flickr too much) so don't use any funny characters in your titles or descriptions (I think it was an unescaped ' that did it) or no photos will appear.

Update: rather than wait for Flickr to fix the bug I've switched to demjson which isn't as strict as simplejson.
