You can connect an external photo source to your app.

  • Go to Design & Structure > Structure > Sections
  • Select "+Add a new section" (check also how to create sections for your app)
  • Choose one of the available services to display your photos.
Note: If you have technical skills, you can also use the photo source Custom Photos. This option is for developers only. For more information, please read about creating custom feeds


Available external sources

You can choose between 3 types of external sources:

- Flickr
- WMaker Photos
- Customized source - Photos

As a general rule, remember that the source will only show in the app the content you have uploaded yourself, not the content initially uploaded by some users and marked as favorite on your website.
If you don't have content of your own in your account, the source won't be able to connect in the backend.



1- Fill-in a title for the section
2- Enter your Username (screen name) or Flickr ID
If you are a Flickr user, you probably know it: it is what identifies you in the URL of your profile.

For instance, for GoodBarber, the username: goodbarber can be found in the public gallery URL, as shown in the screenshot below.

If the username doesn't work, paste the URL of your Flickr page in (or any other similar service) and get your FlickruserIDnumber. Then enter this Flickr ID in your back office. 



1- Fill-in a title for the section
2- Fill in the URL of your WMaker website
3- Fill in your Account ID
4- Fill in your Password



Connect a custom feed (customized source - Photos)

 1- Fill in the title of the section
2- Paste your custom URL feed in the field Settings.

Warning: Make sure your custom feed respects the specifications of the Content API .
