Darkroom Facebook Photo Gallery

The first Facebook Photo Album -to- jQuery-animated gallery for WordPress. Customizable in design and functionality.

This installation is for any other than the easy "install" button at your Dashboard/Plugins/Add New/Search page, of course.

  1. Download and unzip
  2. Upload the entire darkroom-facebook-photo-gallery folder to /your-wordpress-install-dir/wp-content/plugins/
  3. Login to your WP Admin panel, click Plugins, and activate the plugin.
  4. Click "Darkroom" under your Dashboard settings menu or "Settings" action link in the Plugins list and follow the two steps for linking the plugin to a Facebook account.
  5. Click "Manage Albums" - link at the top - and import/organize your albums. You can drag-drop to sort them out, hide and show them.
  6. Upload your logo (or choose not to use it) and other options in the "Darkroom" Dashboard's settings page

It works better in fluid layouts. If you can, just copy your page's template and make it fluid to use it with the gallery's page only. The more width is available the less-crowded the photos will appear when the albums gets expanded.

To take enhance SEO and photo tagging, make sure you separate your Facebook photo captions into three parts, with an empty line between them (two carriage returns) as follow:

  • 1st. line: Photo title: Used for enlarged photo's caption and in thumbnail's alt attribute. Keep it as short as the photo's width.
  • 2nd. line: SEO tags: Used in the title attribute (the one revealed when the thumbnail is hovered).
  • Rest of text: Photo description: Displayed at the top right when a photo is clicked.

Requires: 2.6 or higher
