flickr hack for a (somewhat) classic view (with bookmarklets)

flickr hack (but not really a hack) for classic view of a photo stream, Add ?details=1 to the end of a url. Oddly enough there is an "edit" button above your photostream that will do the same thing. Who knew and why would they hide it there?

Example:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/sakraft1/?details=1

vs

http://www.flickr.com/photos/sakraft1/

For a classic view of a set, just add "detail" to the end (this one will not work of the url contains "with/" and then the number for one of your photos, you need to delete that from the url first):

http://www.flickr.com/photos/sakraft1/sets/1698787/detail

Now, instead of having to manually paste that in, lets make a bookmarklet. This one will add "?details=1" to the end of your url.

javascript:window.location.href=window.location.href + '?details=1';

Install it by making a new bookmark and making that the address or drag this to your bookmark bar:

?details=1

And here is one for "detail" (for sets):

javascript:window.location.href=window.location.href + 'detail';

or drag this to your bookmark bar

detail

You can rename the bookmark to anything you like for your convenience as long as you keep the address the same.

Still not exactly the way flickr used to be, but its as close as we'll get until Yahoo listens to the angry masses.
