I have a big problem with this theme and the way it deals with Flickr integration. What i was used to do (with the previous theme Autofocus) was to get the html code and to embed it on each post (usually a single big image). Here's what happens with Autofocus Pro:
- first i tried using the Flickr html embedded into the post -> this leads to the image being shown in the post, but doubled (first the correct size as chosen and then a smaller copy of it) - author Allan Cole says this cannot be fixed;
- second i've tried using the oEmbed functionality of the theme, by getting the link of the photo - this time the photo appears only once which is ok, but it takes the small size is used by default - the author says that nothing can be done;
- third i've tried using the Flickr API integration function of the theme - but this is also a no-go, as i cannot specify a specific photo to be embedded, but just the first photo from the set selected; again, huge disappointment, as this would mean that i have to create a set for each photo i want to use on the photoblog and this is absurd - the author again says that nothing can be done.
Now this is absolutely frustrating, as i love the theme and i really want to use it, without having to reupload all of my photos on the wordpress server and give up using Flickr (for obvious reasons). In the end, i want to be able to post big photos (usually one/post) without duplicating them and being able to choose the size from Flickr.
I'm sure this can be done pretty easily, but i am totally unfamiliar with php and i cannot find a solution anywhere.
