On this blog, I use the Friendfeed Activity Widget plugin developed by Evan Sims to display my friendfeed (eyes right).

This plugin appears to have a bug whereby items with thumbnails (flickr, youtube etc) will not display correctly. This may possibly be just on my site as nobody else seems to have reported the issue.

The issue seems to be a miss-detection of the entity type in the code, incorrectly assigning flickr and youtube types to the default “list” type. I have hacked together a quick patch which seems to be working for me (but crucially doesn’t fix the underlying problem).

Normally I wouldn’t post this sort of thing here, however it would appear that Evan is no longer maintaining the plugin and has turned off comments. Hopefully, if you are having the same issue as I was, this might be useful to you.
