My WordCamp Whistler 2009 Session Notes

During my talk at WordCamp Whistler, I mentioned a number of plugins you can use on your WordPress site. I created a demo site to show how these things work…don’t know how long I’ll leave it up but it’s all in use on my main site here.

Whistler

For pulling in your Flickr photos into your site as a themed gallery, I use FAlbum. You can see it in action on my photography page here on this site.

For managing many different types of media, especially video, check out pb-embedFlash Media Manager. It lets you fully customize how video is presented on your site, whether it’s locally hosted or on an external site like YouTube or Vimeo.

Unfortunately, not all video sites are supported in pb-embed Flash. Like this timelapse Flickr video I made of the drive up to Whistler for example:

We’re just about to have lunch at WordCamp Whistler so follow along on Twitter and on Flickr and see how the rest of the conference goes.

Big thanks to Duane, John & Rebecca for pulling together an awesome event.

UPDATE: Just heard from kk that FAlbum choked on his Flickr stream when he tried adding it to his site….he does have over 20,000 photos so perhaps if you’re a prolific photog like Kris, you may have some performance issues with FAlbum.
