    Alright so I was following the jCarousel files essentially building a site around it. I attempted to get my specific photos from it but from what I understand these photos are randomly generated.

    here is my HTML

    Code:
    < !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">





    Pioneer


    and here is my php

    Code:
    < ?php header('Content-type: text/xml; charset: utf-'.'8'); //header('Cache-Control: must-revalidate'); $api_key = 'b9f9c7cf459ad1abdc6cf7f0b830f7b1'; // This include sets my personal api key. // Please remove this line and set your api key with the variable above. // Get your own api key from http://www.flickr.com/services/api/keys/ // Use the following url to get the most interesting photos. // Since parameterless searches have been disabled, we have to add license=1,2,3,4,5 // to get the most interesting photos without search criteria. // $url = 'http://api.flickr.com/services/rest/?method=flickr.photos.search&license=1,2,3,4,5,6&sort=interestingness-desc&api_key=' . $api_key; $url = 'http://api.flickr.com/services/rest/?method=flickr.photos.getRecent&api_key=' . $api_key; if (!empty($_REQUEST['per_page'])) { $url .= '&per_page=' . urlencode($_REQUEST['per_page']); } if (!empty($_REQUEST['page'])) { $url .= '&page=' . urlencode($_REQUEST['page']); } echo file_get_contents($url); ?>

    I am sure it is quite obvious, but I just do not understand it at all. I’m trying really hard to learn but its becoming pretty hard for me.

    Please help me
