== Frequently asked questions ==

= Why I write this plugin? =
I'd been using Pixelpost as my photoblog for years, and developed this plugin for it. Pixelpost is a simple and great photoblog software, but it has stopped to update for 4 years, so I decided to move to Wordpress, and with this plugin.

= How to get Flickr API key and secret? =
If you have not create one, you can Get Another Key from Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/services/api/keys/ .

= How to get a Flickr photo id? =
Flickr Photo ID is usually the number in the URL of a photo page eg: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jdleung/435246848/ 

= Why auto-update does't work? =
Check your theme if there is a 'wp_head();' between '<head>' and '</head>' in the header.php. It is one of the most essential theme hooks, so it is widely supported.

= Why it take so long in manual-update? =
You may have lots of photos.
