Simple Facebook Gallery

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  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

    http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150146071791729.324257.20531316728

IMPORTANT

Because of recent Facebook changes you need create a free Facebook App here

https://developers.facebook.com/apps

Then in the dashboard go to Simple Facebook Gallery and enter your API key and secret key

 

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.
