Please consider posting requests and suggestions in relevant forum topic (link in resources below)
Make sure you check flickrBomb homepage.


  • Tested with Yii 1.1.9 on Windows machine, but it should work on anything from 1.1.x series.
  • Flickr API Key


  • Unpack into 'application.extensions' directory.
  • Go to Flickr App Garden and request API Key if you don't have one yet.
  • Open jquery.flickrbomb.min.js from 'application.extensions.EFlickrBomber.assets' folder and paste your API Key in flickrbombAPIkey variable.
  • Run as any other widget
           'tags' => 'windsurfing, kiteboarding', //required
           'id' => 'top-left', //optional
           'width' => 300, //optional, default 200px
           'height' => 100, //optional, default 200px
           'ratio' => '16:9', //optional

tags: are required. Yhey will be used as search keywords.
id: is only required if there is more then one flickrBomb on a page using exactly the same tags and you want to take advantage of local storage.
width and height: most likely you will want to change these. You can also set them to false if you want for example to set img dimensions in css.
ratio: is supposed to constrain the longest dimension to the size of the images container and keep aspect ratio.
