Flickr Plug-In Not Working

I've seen people report issues now and then, but haven't found a resolution for my specific issue.  I haven't used the plug in in a little while, but do have thousands of pix uploaded, so it worked well for a long time.  I have moved computers and now getting everything reconnected.  The last piece if the Flickr plug-in.

 

Every time I publish, after a while I get a "An error occured while trying to access Flickr server".  I have rebooted, un-authorized and re-authorized and keep getting same error.  I am running LrC 11.5 on Windows 11.  

 

I am online and everything else working, e.g. LrC sync, direct access to Flickr, etc.

 

Any help is appreciated.

"An error occurred while trying to access Flickr server".

 

Over the years I've gotten that error intermittently, sometimes often, mostly infrequently. The Flickr service has never been that robust, though it seems to have gotten better 

 

If you keep re-publishing a collection, do all the changes eventually get published?

 

An alternative to consider is this third-party Flickr plugin. It's much better maintained than the built-in Flickr plugin and the author has an excellent reputation (he designed the export/publishing plugin architecture for Adobe).  It has the ability to sync pre-existing Flickr collections, so you could migrate your existing collections to the new plugin (though it may be a little fussy to set up).

Worked with Flickr to troubleshoot.  Gave up.  They too suggested moving to Jeffrey plug-in which I have done.  Works well.
