Flickr stopped working after 27 June 2014 Flickr goes https

All Flickr photo albums on my site stopped loading recently. After searching Flickr help I found an article about Flickr is using https instead of http now. See below:

Flickr API going to SSL

Deprecating non-SSL access

As announced on the Flickr code blog, we've updated all API endpoints to fully support HTTPS.

Beginning June 27, 2014, we're going to stop supporting the API over HTTP.

Apps using the Flickr API will stop working after June 27 unless you update them to use HTTPS.

Full article is here https://help.yahoo.com/kb/flickr/SLN24319.html?impressions=true

Does the code of Mojoportal needs a change to make it work? Or it is a setting change?

Thank you for any help in advance!

Kevin

Hi,

The url for the flickr api is in the file /ClientScript/jqueryflickr/inc/flickrgallery-min.js

Can you try editing that file and change the url to https and see if that solves it? 

The url is in there in several places so you will need to change it in several places. ie everywhere that you see

http://api.flickr.com... change it to https://api.flickr.com...

Thanks,

Joe

Re: Flickr stopped working after 27 June 2014 Flickr goes https

you should change the mobile one in that folder too. It worked on the demo site, but the flickr plugin also requires jquery migrate which can be enabled in layout.master <portal:ScriptLoader ... IncludeJQueryMigrate="true"...

I tried to replace the two files from http to https and update the layout.master with


<portal:ScriptLoader ID="ScriptLoader1" runat="server" includeJQueryMigrate="true" />

but it still does not work. you can send me the two files to be included in the .../ClientScript/jqueryflickr/inc/...  ?

 

I would not have done something wrong...

You can get the updated files from our source code repository here and here. You might also have to refresh the web browser a few times to make sure you are not getting a cached copy from the web browser.

Hello, I downloaded and updated the two files.

I got it working with the flickr gallery but does not work with fliskr slide show. even on the demo site. I added one more page in the section called flickr slide show and have insert your data (user id and api key), but the slide show does not work.

sorry but I think we will have to retire and remove the flickr slideshow feature. It is based on Vertigo SlideShow Silverlight project that has not been updated in the last 5 years.

ok joe, with regard to flickr flickr gallery is fine to use. in fact vertigo is no longer updated for a long time.


in future versions of mojoportal will still use the silverlight gallery ?  will only eliminated the flickr slideshow ?

 

 

I offered you a beer ... thanks joe

Re: Flickr stopped working after 27 June 2014 Flickr goes https

It is just the flickr data provider that is built into it is broken, I guess because it still uses http for flickr, but the rest of it still works so it still works in the image gallery, as long as it works we will keep it, but we will remove the broken Flickr Slideshow.

In general, silverlight is kind of deprecated and out of style for web applications and I don't expect to add any new silverlight things into mojoPortal going forward, it is better to use html 5 and javascript.

Thanks for the beer!

Cheers,

Joe
