Facebook Vinyl

Description

** Facebook changed their rules, this plugin now goes THROUGH our server as a proxy, it’s all I could think of to make it work again for you guys. **

This plugin integrates Facebook albums into WordPress with an easy to use editor popup.

Personally I like to make things easy. Especially things that are boring. So with that in mind I needed an easy way for clients to add their own galleries to WordPress, and I find the Media Library lacking. Since most companies have Facebook these days–and I work at a social media company–I decided to integrate Facebook albums into WordPress. And I wanted a really easy way for clients to be able to do this themselves. So I can continue to build things.

That being said, this is currently a work in progress. It’s a work in progress that I’m using on client sites, but its still not perfect. I’ll be adding more to make it so as the days/weeks/months/years/worlds go on.

Current Capabilities:

  • Shortcodes
  • Editor popup panel (to make it easier for clients)
  • Album caching to improve speed

Planned Updates

  • Added easy through Facebook user integration. This would allow users to connect their Facebook accounts, and find pages that they currently manage, and the galleries associated with them.
  • Options panels to allow for the editing of the presentation and usability of the plugin.

Contact me for other things that would make it better, and maybe I can squeeze some work time into updating the plugin to add those. I really don’t want it to be huge and bloated (but it might get there).

Screenshots

  • Look a editor window popup.

Installation

Add this plugin through the built in WordPress plugin interface.

FAQ

Another one?

Yes

Really?

Yeah, I didn’t like the other ones. Is this one perfect? No. But I’ve tried to keep the markup clean so that others can skin it, and use it for themselves. Well, not really; I’ve kept it clean and made it so that I can use it on multiple different sites and match it to the themes we’ve created for clients. Is it ideal? Not yet.
