Facebook Photos

There are Three (3) Facebook Modules:  Facebook Photos (this document); Facebook Posts and Facebook Page.  Each of these have different requirements.

FB Access Token. While the module will work in preview without the access token, you will need it for live apps. You will find a good tutorial here on how to obtain the Facebook Access Token:

Each app should have its own Access Token. Keep in mind that while a single Facebook API key/Access Token will work for multiple apps, Facebook did not create them with that intention. Your use of the Facebook API keys/Access Tokens should comply with Facebook’s terms of use, or you risk having your access to Facebook API’s restricted.

 

Facebook (Page) ID:  Enter your FP ID or Page Name NOT full URL, and NOT the username.

Examples:

If the URL is www.facebook.com/pages/Cafe- Gratitude/54188889030
enter 54188889030

If the URL is www.facebook.com/pages/sam-smiths-page
enter sam-smiths-page as the page name. Either will work.

Note: Always use the Facebook PAGE ID for the Photos module as Facebook doesn’t allow users to make albums completely public. Only Facebook “Page” pages can make albums public.
