Facebook API came back with a faulty result... (21 posts)

    I'm getting the message "Facebook API came back with a faulty result. You may be accessing an album you do not have permissions to access", however the albums public on a public group page. At the top of the page that I'm trying to add the album to, I get this message, "Please try entering https://graph.facebook.com/278389775514218/photos?fields=source,link,name,images,album&limit=1000 into your URL bar and seeing if the page loads."

    Oddly, I'm getting this error with one clients facebook page (Fundy HomeEducators), but I'm not experiencing it with another client (Medical Mission International).

    It's not the website because I've tried both clients FB albums on the others websites and consistently it's Fundy Home Educators albums which are the problem, so it has something to do with their albums.

    I feel like it's something really simple that I'm just missing...

    The same exact thing is happening to me; I made sure everything was updated (theme, plug-in, etc) and that the FB albums were public. Help!

    I'm revisiting the plugin. Facebook's API may have changed and I'm investigating.

    In short: I'll see if I can figure something out! The plugin is getting new life.

    Same problem here. The odd thing is that the plugin is working on one of my sites, and broken on another. (It was working 1 week ago, and between then and now I have made 0 changes to the site)

    I've combed through my facebook page's settings and found no privacy restrictions.

    Any advice on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey all, so people seem to have gotten this fixed by integrating the plugin with a Facebook App.

    I don't know if Facebook is cracking down on unauthenticated API requests from IPs or what's up.

    The 3.x release is in /trunk and in somewhat development. This project doesn't pay the bills and never has, so it is on the backburner of my list of projects. But it if did pay some bills, then there'd probably be more work.

    The error I am getting is:

    Please try entering https://graph.facebook.com/10152487369916096&type=1/photos?fields=source,link,name,images,album&limit=6 into your URL bar and seeing if the page loads.Facebook API came back with a faulty result. You may be accessing an album you do not have permissions to access.

    Following the instructions, it displays the following:

    {
       "error": {
          "message": "(#803) Some of the aliases you requested do not exist: 10152487369916096&type=1",
          "type": "OAuthException",
          "code": 803
       }
    }

    The album is public / in a public group, and creating a Facebook App and adding its login details to the plugin will simply make the error message displayed on the website change to:

    OAuthException: (#803) Some of the aliases you requested do not exist: 10152487369916096&type=1Sorry, there was an error loading the Facebook album, please refresh the page and try again.

    Hi, first sorry for my English, or rather, pardon the Google Translate English ;-)
    I have the same problem.
    But if I delete the cache in Settings/Facebook Album: Clear all caches returns to work, but ... just once!

    Reload the page and ... does not work!

    I no programming, but still helps if you know someone who programming.

    Sorry again for the Google Translate English...

    There is a fix!

    First, I tried the link Angela shared (https://wordpress.org/support/topic/widget-not-working-heres-fix?replies=1) -- it didn't work for me.

    SOLUTION:
    Creating an app and then placing the 'App ID' and 'App Secret' into Settings > Facebook Album > General Settings

    Go to FB, login, and go to apps:
    https://developers.facebook.com/

    Create an app, enter a name like "wp plugin" and go to last step to see the App ID and App Secret.

    Hope that helps :)

    Hi,
    I encounter the same problem, e.g. at http://test.blinireizen.nl/reizen/info-india/ (2 messages, 1 at the top and 1 in left menu-bar).

    I tried to follow the advice from Zingseven above (creating an app etc.)
    I have created a new app in Facebook via https://developers.facebook.com/, named 'wp plugin" and I have the App ID and the App Secret.

    Now I am not sure what to do next. Do I go to my WordPress-account and edit the Facebook-albums-plugin? And where do I have to enter the App ID and App Secret?

    Tnanks for your help!

    @BliniReizen, you just need to login to your WP Dashboard and then go to the plugin's settings.

    In the dashboard, look on the left navigation, hover over "Settings" and then click "Facebook Album"...

    Under "General Settings", you will see an area to enter your App ID and App Secret.

    Hope that helps :)

    Thanks. That worked for me as well. Gonna make the change on all my other sites that use this plugin even though they're still working.

    @biztechq, awesome!! Glad the fix worked :)

    @mglaman, I know you're busy, but have you thought of putting this plugin on Code Canyon? I'd gladly pay.

    There is nothing out there that works as smooth as this (re: "embedded" FB photos). The UX is great for us admins, and the UX is phenomenal for site visitors!

    Just keep up posted and let us know what you decide to do. I'll be your first customer :-)
