Facebook Photo Fetcher

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!

Features:

  • Uses Facebook's API to instantly create WordPress photo galleries from Facebook albums.
  • Galleries are fully customizable: you can import complete albums, select excerpts, random excerpts, album descriptions, photo captions, and more.
  • Galleries can be organized however you like: in any post or page, alone or alongside your other content.
  • Simple PHP template function allows programmers to manually embed albums in any template or widget.
  • Built-in LightBox: Photos appear in attractive pop-up overlays without the need for any other plugins.
  • Admin panel handles all the setup for you: Just login and you're ready to start making albums.
  • Admin panel includes a utility to search for albums you can access (and use to create galleries).
  • Admin panel includes a utility to auto-traverse all your posts and pages, updating albums that may've changed on Facebook.
  • No custom database tables required; galleries live in regular post content.

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.
