Flickr - Single Page Results

  1. Install the "Flickr - Single Page Results" script (requires Greasemonkey for Firefox)
  2. Search for something on Flickr
  3. Scroll down the page
  4. Continue scrolling down the page
  5. Repeat step 4 as much as you need ;-)
Beware, this is rather hypnotic and makes Flickr really addictive.

Watch out! Addictive stuff!

Recently, I have been fishing for images from Flickr to include in my blog posts. And it is clear that turning pages gets in the way.

Luckily, there is an "endless scrolling" AJAX technique. tried it for its image results, instead of chunking them. It was discussed on the Humanized blog and implemented in the Humanized Blog Reader.

This script here implements the same feature for the Flickr search results.

Note that this works best if you scroll down the page using the keyboard, rather than the scrollbar.
Also, I did not implement any kind of landmark or bookmarkability support (using the url hash).

The script is based off my previous "Single Page View" scripts (IGN, ArsTechnica, ACMQueue), but is a bit simpler and should be easier to adapt to other sites.
