So Google finally decided to depreciate the Picasa API which was the way I was pulling pictures into my AB BLOG site.upset
Suddenly I was getting 404 errors but at the same time I had really let the site kind of fall by the wayside as family stuff had come up etc.

Did some research on their developers’ site and they now require you to use Google photos and the Google Photos Library API which requires you to go through a few more hoops to get it to work.
https://developers.google.com/picasa-web/docs/3.0/deprecation

Anyway, home sick today so played around with it and got it to work.
I guess they put a cap on using the API to 10,000 requests per project per day which I don’t think is an issue.wink
You can see here (at bottom of post) how it looks pulling a Google Photo Gallery into Word Press.

Looking at some of my old pictures has really motivated me to get back out into the AB desert a bit more which is my goal this spring.

Take care all and a special thanks to the regulars who keep this forum going,
Bob

I second that Bob, thanks for putting all the work into the best little forum about Anza Borrego out there.
