Allows you to automatically create WordPress photo galleries from any Facebook album you can access. Simple to use and highly customizable.
This plugin allows you to quickly and easily generate WordPress photo galleries from any Facebook album you can access.
The idea was inspired by Fotobook, though its approach is fundamentally different: while Fotobook's emphasis is on automation, this plugin allows a great deal of customization. With it you can create galleries in any Post or Page you like, right alongside your regular content. You do this simply by putting a "magic HTML tag" in the post's content - much like WordPress Shortcode. Upon saving, the tag will automatically be populated with the Facebook album content. Presentation is fully customizable via parameters to the "magic tag" - you can choose to show only a subset of an album's photos, change the number of photos per column, show photo captions, and more.
Also, Facebook Photo Fetcher does not limit you to just your own albums: you can create galleries from friends and fanpages as well. This is very handy if you're not the main photo-poster in your social circle: just let your friend or family upload all those wedding pics, then import them directly to your blog!
For a Demo Gallery, see the plugin's homepage.
Note: In order to allow this plugin to access your photos, it requires a one-time "phone home" authorization. This is necessary to comply with Facebook's security rules, which require that apps authorize from a specific, known location. If you're allergic to "phone home" scripts then you won't be able to use this (or any Facebook app-based) plugin.
