[resolved] Does this plugin download the Facebook Page albums locally? (3 posts)

    I have a quick question. This plugin looks like it is exactly what I need but I am curious how it works before I attempt to use it.

    1. Does the plugin download the images from albums on my Facebook Page to my local WordPress website? If so, where does it saves the files that it downloads?

    2. If I in the future add more photos to one of the albums, do I need to save the page containing the magic-code again to retrieve the new images? If so, would this cause duplicate image files to be put in my wordpress website or does the plugin do a check to prevent this?

    I sometimes add photos to my albums on a regular basis and just want to make sure I know the proper way to go about getting the plugin to recognize the new images.

    Thank you in advance.

    10. Some of my photos appear as tiny squares / Popup lightboxes just show the loading animation forever
    Although this plugin generates the content needed to *show* your Facebook albums, the photos themselves still reside on Facebook's servers - which can be pretty unreliable at times. If some of your images won't come up, login to Facebook directly and see if those same images are working. My bet is they're not.

    As you can see the data is only linked and is loaded from Facebook CDN directly.

    Both of these are already answered in the plugin documentation.
