Hi, I am new to flickrApi and just cannot find a way to search Photos by comments not by tags. For example i'd like to find all (public) photos where anybody posted a comment containing a particular word or phrase.. is there such a function? thanks a lot, D.

If there is a way to do it on the Flickr web site then there is more than likely a way to do it using the API (although that is not always the case).

So ask yourself - how do you search by comments on Flickr - answer, you can't. So is that functionality likely to be in the API, nope.
