I have tried using CatBlock to replace ads from my personal flickr feed and it does not seem to work ( white space on webpage instead of expected photos) . under the suspicion that it was something about my flickr account i tired with others and get the same result.

 in the options panel i have tried adding:
 by phtostream ID: e.g. 140338847
 as well as by url: e.g. https://www.flickr.com/photos/151975399@N04/
i have also tried several variations of the url ( to try to mimic the syntax shown in the example) : e.g. https://www.flickr.com/photos/151975399@N04/, https://www.flickr.com/photos/151975399/, https://www.flickr.com/Testymcadface/photos/151975399@N04/, etc.

all with no luck . I am sure it is something simple i am missing but if you could point me how to correct this I would appreciate it.

btw i have tried this with safari, chrome, and firefox all with same results

    I figured it out- the photos cannot be in a photostream but have to come from a specific flickr album, when I did this it works fine.
    You might want to explain this in you help files

    I am sorry, but I also have the same problem as bryan.gibson had, but since i don't use flickr, i am afraid I don't quite understood the solution to the problem. Could you please explain?
    Thank you in advance
