    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for the kind words. Much appreciated.

    We totally understand the need for more albums and photos, and yes, it is on the wishlist, it’s just a matter of time.

    Technically speaking, we chose to limit them because of the way the data is pulled from Facebook – it’s API works on a default limit of 25 itself.

    We also kept it limited to 25 to reduce the time that the plugin takes to collect the data and cache it. Too many requests really slows the process down on your server. Optimising that process is part of the wishlist.

    Initially, we chose to target the plugin as a way to direct visitors to your Facebook page, rather than duplicate it.

    Another angle you might want to consider as well – this plugin was designed purposely to avoid having to authenticate with Facebook. Therefore, we’re limited to showing only “public” photos, and some other restrictions as well. Ultimately, you might get a better result from a plugin that does authenticate with Facebook.

    Not trying to talk you out of it – but just want you to know that our roadmap is slightly alternative to the other plugins available.

    Thanks for your feedback.
    Sorry about the long answer – hope it helps.
