ephemeral photostream

I’ve been tweaking how I manage the ephemeral media here on my blog. Today, I added a page that shows the most recent 50 images uploaded to the site, with links to the post about each image. It’s a bit more like a photostream view, and the page includes links to the larger bloggish photostream view, as well as the RSS feed for ephemeral stuff.

To do this, I’m just using the native WordPress media manager to handle the images (which happens automagically), and the YD Recent Images plugin and Widgets on Pages plugin to embed the photo/imagestream on the page. This is pretty close to how I imagined displaying images here. Now, to think more about how to better replace the missing community features from Flickr’s Contacts page…

  1. That’s a great tip, thanks! I also added some css (padding and margin) to give the images some spacing. If there is a way to add post title below the image you’d have something very flickr like.

    Here is my css
    .yd_rii {
    float:left;
    margin:5px; padding:3px;
    }

  2. Not sure if my last comment went through. I’ll try on more. Thanks for the tip. I added a little css (padding and margin) and had to float my images b/c they appeared in a list. Now if you could get the title of the post to appear you could get that flickr feel.
