Use the following code instead: <pre><iframe src=”http://www.flickr.com/slideShow/index.gne?user_id=uid&set_id=sid&text=” align=”middle” frameborder=”0″ height=”480″ scrolling=”no” width=”520″></iframe></pre> where uid is your Flickr user id number and sid is the id number of the set of photos you wish to display.
