pixel Flickr Photostream Widget

We wrote this Widget for a customer of ours. They have a large photographer blog and wanted the Authors Links to connect to their respective Flickr Accounts rather than the Author Profile, which is the default behavior of wp_list_authors() function.


Rather than linking to the authors profile, this widget modifies the link to connect to the authors flickr photostream. This was designed for photoblogs that have multiple authors/photographers.
If the shadowbox JS plugin is install the Flickr Photostream is rendered in a Lightbox, otherwise it will goto the flickr website. Uses the Yahoo IM account if in user profile, otherwise uses nickname. By Greg Royal/Bluecowhosting. Extends the Authors plugin from Gavriel Fleischer.
