    I created a new flickr gallery on my WP site with your plugin..
    The Flickr gallery contains 14 pics, but the [FAG ID number] of the gallery on my site shows only 1 pic when I do a preview of the blogpost. I have already tried with a new API code, but the result is the same, only 1 picture is visible
    When I ran of first test of your flickr album plugin in late May, it worked alright.
