I’ve received a flood of emails this morning from clients concerned that their site is “broken” or “busted” or “hacked”. None of the above, I’m happy to say, but there is definitely something afoot.
It seems Flickr updated the script they’ve written to display images on your website. They call it a badge. In doing so, it appears they’ve added a 1 pixel by 1 pixel (or maybe even 0 x 0) geo-tracking something-or-other that is shoving people’s images all akimbo. Unless it’s been there all along, but then it would have been wonky before, n’est-ce pas?
In a nutshell, I’m not sure how to resolve this yet, as the script is generated by Flickr, not our programming, but we’re looking into it and as soon as we find a solution, either with news from Flickr, a CSS trick or whatever, we’ll let you know.
Update: The fix seems to be to apply the style to the link styling, not to the image styling. You can read more about it here.
