How to "Import an album from facebook" to my website?1 user found helpful
"An image gallery that displays a public facebook album as a series of thumbnails. You can optionally enable a lightbox effect (the "Fancybox") so that the images zoom out when clicked. The size of the thumbnails and the zoomed images are configurable, as well as the number of columns to display the images in. You can also change the lightbox zooming effect and the placement of captions.
This is the same as Jordanlev's Simple Image Gallery just modified with his permission to allow Facebook albums.
To add an album all you need is the album ID.
1. Browse to your facebook album you wish to add and ensure that it is set to public
2. Copy the album ID which is the set of numbers located after 'set=a' between the two periods e.g
When you add a new album or change the thumbnail settings it may appear as nothing is happening however please allow time for the addon to copy the files from Facebook and generate the thumbnails to you local cache. This may take a while if your album has alot of photos.
Please not as of yet it will only work with Facebook pages as these do not require permission from Facebook to access them as they are public.
Like John said i tryed it already with no luck, the support is very poor and the addon isn't working :-( thats why im searching for another solution.
Hope someone Can help:-)
Ps.thanks for the follower up John :-)
When you say it didnt work.. what happened exactly? Because I tried it before and also thought it didnt work.. but after reading the description, I realised that I was just being impatient.
Its says- "When you add a new album or change the thumbnail settings it may appear as (though) nothing is happening, however please allow time for the addon to copy the files from Facebook and generate the thumbnails to your local cache.
This may take a while if your album has a lot of photos."
After waiting (for what seemed to be forever), it did actually work; It just takes a long time at the first instance.
Can you maybe try it again with an album that has only a few images in it and see if it still doesnt pull the data?
well i tryed to import the same gallery for a week now, it can find the thumbsnails and when u press the photo its like a iframe of the site that comes up. i followed it step by step but maybe i shut try and do it like u said: make an album with 3 images and try to wait some days and see what happens.:)
the other solution u send the facebook-album has crosed my mind, but the rating scared me a little, dos it work? (its dosnet look like there are any support??)
and it actually came up quite quickly. My problem is that it is not responsive and when I resize the images overlap. I found this:http://jsfiddle.net/4W2Bc/10/ and this awesome responsive gallery:http://www.plusgallery.net/ that will work with apparently everything but Facebook. I am going to try and put these pieces together and see what I come up with but don't hold your breath. I have already been trying for hours to find a solution to what should, in my opinion, be an easier problem to solve. If anyone wants to put the pieces together before I do I will gladly purchase an addon that displays all or any Facebook albums, preferably all. I imagine it will take me about 61 months to figure it out given my current experience level. If someone found a better solution, please post a link. Thanks, I will get back to you.
This block was based on this:
I checked it on all browsers and it works in Firefox, Opera and Safari but not IE or Chrome.
as the gallery? Is there perhaps some way I can change the code to just use this URL? Thanks.
You could try this approach:http://www.ampercent.com/facebook-widgets/3062/...
I tried to change that to the URL for the stream and have tried every variation I can think of. Nothing Worked. I will toy with it later and if I come up with an answer I will post it.
It's better this way but I have to manually build a page each time they add a new gallery. Not that big a deal but still more work.
