    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

    < !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

    and here is my php

    < ?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

    // 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 = ',2,3,4,5,6&sort=interestingness-desc&api_key=' . $api_key;

    $url = '' . $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
