Any option for downloading all pics album wise from a page proposed? or in to do list?
Since this is jQuery plugin there is no downloading option, that would be the php script’s area. But I’m considering to build such application in the future.
Hi! Can I order my albums by date (ASC, DESC) somehow?
Thanks for Buying Faba.
Unfortunately ordering of albums is not possible. They are added from the response that is returned from Facebook using their API. There are no options to modify the order in which the albums are returned, only the limit – the number of albums that will be returned.
Hi Aleksej, thanks for reply
Can you please tell, it is not possible to do this in Faba, but it is possible to do it with Facebook API? And if Facebook allows that, could it be possible to use that in Faba?
No, what I was saying is that Facebook API cannot return albums by any order that user can sets. First API call is made to facebook requesting for the specific number of albums from a fb page, and then fb return array of albums. created_time parameter is for single album call, but it is not available in the above mentioned call.
Anyway good news is that I have experimented with this a bit, and I have used a cover_photo created_time parameter to determine the order (ASC or DESC) inside this array after data is received from Facebook but before Faba is adding albums to the page.
I will include this new option and launch an update in couple of days. I will let you know when I release it
Thats amazing news Aleksej! It means that albums could be ordered (asc, desc) by cover_photo created_time, correct? So with this feature newer albums could be on top of the list and older at the bottom. That would be fantastic!
Would like to say, you made a great job! I like what you do!
Thanks slvragency , I’m glad you like it
Yes that’s correct ordering is possible. As long as the cover_photo selected by facebook is consistent with the timeline of album creating. By my testing so far ordering is pretty much correct
I will probably release this update in a day or two
Can you please tell when Faba could be updated (with the ordering feature)?
I will try to send update till tonight, and then usually it is approved within a day on Codecanyon. So it could be available till saturday night. Or you can send me an email through my contact form so I can attach you directly new update the moment I finish it
Thanks so much! I’ll send you email
Have a nice day!
Thanks so much for update.
Can you please tell what should I do now to order albums by date (from newer to older)? Maybe it’s should be a special ‘option’ in script?
Yes, like I mentioned in an email I sent you yesterday, just use new option : albumsSort. This option accepts following values: “random”, “asc”, or “desc”. So to order albums in ascending order just use new option:
Just like any other regular option. You can pass it along your other options when initializing faba.
Description of this option is added in documentation under Albums part of Options section.
Thank you! Its working pretty well! Sometimes it’s randomly changing the albums, but normally new albums are on top always.
I found only one problem, I dont know why, but its not working on mobile.
Yes indeed, it seems on mobile phones this order is not persistent due to different layout on small screen and third party plugin’s way of albums placement. Currently fully ordering is possible only on bigger screens.
Hi, nice script but i`ve a big problem, if i use bootstrat 3.3.6 css your plugin layout crash.
here you can see: http://www.goodsub.es/es/galeria
thank you for buying FABA.
Don’t worry, this is not a bootstrap conflict, this means that you need to reduce albums width (use albumWidth option – full list of options: http://themeflection.com/docs/faba/#options ). As you can see it is described in documentation that depending on number of albums and container width albums may appear broken. If that happens just reduce albumWidth until they can properly fit. Try for example albumWidth: 230
Thanks, now works!
No problem I’m glad I could help.
P.S Don’t forget to rate FABA
When viewing a photo and back arrow is pressed, user end up in an website visited earlier
Thank you for purchasing FABA.
I assume you are referring to the slideshow view – particularly navigation arrow on slideshow view when a photo is opened? Those arrows are a part of slideshow plugin, and they are linking exclusively to the photos inside the FABA gallery, I don’t see any means or way how it could link anywhere outside that.
I will need to check that on your website to know more. Send me the link to the webpage where FABA is used so I can check.
Usually clicking the backspace button on keyboard will take you back to the last visited site inside current browser’s window, maybe this button was unintentionally clicked ? Can this behavior be repeated intentionally every time when you open some photo and click the back arrow?
Hi, yes it is in the slideshow and the person I asked to test it kept hitting the back arrow of the browser instead of of using the X for closing the slideshow. That is why I was wondering if I could stop the slideshow from backing out of my side and in instead do nothing or close the slideshow when back arrow of the browser is hit. I only have setup the album in the Icelandic part will do the English tomorrow it is not on the menu yet. You will have to scroll down until you reach it. http://www.glacierlagoonforsale.com/
I am not sure what you mean by ” if I could stop the slideshow from backing out of my side” ? When back arrow of a browser is clicked, it behaves the way that browser is programmed – it returns visitors back to the website he visited previously inside that browser window. That’s how browser behaves, I can’t change browser’s behavior from within my plugin.
To close slideshow when picture is open, you can click anywhere on the body, around the picture and slideshow will be closed no need to strictly click on X button. Also X button is shown bellow the picture after the comments section, which does not interferes with browser’s back button which is on the top of the browser.
By the way, nice website
Thank you for your reply
i need some customization to this. actually i want to automatically posts images from pages to some groups. . if you can do . what are customization charges ?
Hm, posting is entirely different domain from current plugin’s, with different permissions I think. That would require a new app to be created in jQuery, or PHP, depending on requirements. But my guess is that new app would be monitoring the selected pages and every time new post is added it should post it to selected groups.
You can email me via my profile page with more details, so we can maybe think of something. Have you tried https://ifttt.com/ ? As I recall they were providing similar stuff with cross-posting.
Hi I am interested in purchasing this plugin, can you tell me when someone adds an image o a facebook album it automatically adds it to this gallery without having to synchronise it manually?
Yea it is automated, if you are not caching albums they will sync all the time, if you cache them, you should repeat caching process depending how often new pictures are added on fb page.
hello before buying I want to see a demo
but the demo of your product seems to not work.
Actually it is working, I am not sure why got opposite impression – http://screencast.com/t/bVEt4mlysj
Yes, but I try to put my website facebook and does not work
personal facebook not work?
No, you can’t use user albums, that requires special permissions and private access app. FABA can display only facebook albums from pages
is there anyway the images can be shown on the gallery without distorting the thumbnails?
Thank you for buying FABA,
I hope this helps
Hi, this does not seem to work on mobile devices, on the gallery page the galleries stack behind each other and also when a gallery is selected it does not show any images, this is on an iphone 5 and when the browser is shrank down, can you please advise, link is: http://property-team.co.uk/proof/gallery.html
This is not default behavior, there is probably something omitting the grid plugin to execute properly. There is no js error of any kind, but something holds back the albums, they are unable to order properly like on my demo. Can you try excluding your other scripts one by one, and see if you can locate which one is creating the issue? IF you can’t manage, you can email me the credentials for some temporary FTP account so I can inspect this?
Let me know how this goes
Dear author, any chance there will be a prestashop version? Regards
Thanks for taking interest in my plugin,
I am not quite into prestashop, I am more WordPress oriented. I was not thinking about doing a prestashop, but somewhere in future, I might do that as well
Is there a way to hide the json code where you enter the app id and token etc so people cant get it or see it?
also… how do i add the app and gt the token etc i need from my facebook page so the html page can grab my albums and see them on my personal site?
found it and logged into my personal; page, created a developer account.. actually its been created but when i go to click Create App ID it says this email is not authorized to manage apps but thats the email thats registered that i can see. Any ideas?
I will answer to both comments here:
- The app id and token are rendered on the page dynamically when faba is initialized. So they kinda need to be accessed by the app, so I can’t hide them. But apps and tokens are created within minutes whenever needed, and there is hard to find a scenario in which it would be abused. But if you do not want to display them, you can use the caching process and load the albums from cache, so after caching is finished, you can remove both app id and token, and on live site load all data from cache
- That’s odd. Are you trying to create app from the personal account, as yourself? Is your email verified? if your email is not verified. or did not verified developer account when it was created this is probably the issue why facebook do not let you create the app. It seems your developer account is not set properly.
Here, try reading these articles, they will help you: https://www.facebook.com/help/167551763306531?locale=en_US
and this one about setting up: https://spring.io/guides/gs/register-facebook-app/
And official facebook docs: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/apps/register
Let me know if this helps
hi i want to buy your product … it is very good
I’ve seen the demo but first sheet of the gallery appears blank.
My facebook id is :GOLFPOINTCLUB
you can see and comment if you can solve
Thank you for taking interest in FABA,
Don’t worry that seems to happen once you apply new page to the demo, re-inicialization is usually not getting properly first album you open. But in live settings this can’t happen, here I set the file to load your page directly – http://screencast.com/t/rVFrkJxUNdLt , and as you can see all photos are loaded .
Let me know if you have any more question.
All the best
Does it work in HTML?
Yes, this is jQuery plugin, you can include it into any HTML page on your website.
Hi FABA Support, i notice that my token created was expired. Then i click debug and this extend to 2 more months. It is mean i need to re-generate token and replace the token code every time it was expired? looking forward to hear from you. Thanks.
Dear Support, Apologies that i used a wrong token (User Token) and caused the issue. The apps is live now and should be ok. Thanks.
Thank you for using faba,
No problem, I am glad you managed
hi i have a prepurchase question : i noted that some images in the live preview are not displayed … for example in the demo September 2010 i cannot see the first picture (waterfall) but i can see the second one (dog on the beach).. is a loading problem ? .. second question .. is it possible to get only the picture and not the image comment list ? tnx
1. Demo is loading from cached file, there is an option to catch all albums, but I am seeing the first picture fine – https://www.screencast.com/t/G2PXFPpD , it fetches all the pictures that are available, you can also test by fetching in live, you can disable cached version in the customizer (you will see the handle on the right side of screen, you can open it there).
2. Yes, those elements are optional, you can see the whole list of parameters in documentation – http://themeflection.com/docs/faba/#options , among else, you will see that there are option to show/hide photo description, commenters face, or whole comments, and description fields.
the problem is not when i see all the thumbnails … is when i click on waterfall pic to see it enlarged … please view https://www.screencast.com/t/Hjg6ifvSnc .. and please try yourself as well
sorry i tried with one of my facebook page and images are displayed correctly (i assume that maybe the waterfall image is not existing anymore) .. anyway few more question :
1) some thumbnail pictures are shrinking the base image deforming it please see https://www.screencast.com/t/7AZpwiiZfTs .. which is the setting to leave the pic as it is without deforming it ?
2) the order of displaying the albums is not the same of facebook … we have all albums organized by date but doesn’t seem this order be the same on your plugin.. there is a way to have album orderded in the same way is in facebook ?
Yes, the thumbs are catched, but the full size image is fetched from fb, so that image is deleted if it failed to load.
1) The grid will depend from the layout you choose. The images are resized dynamically with js based on the size you set. Or it can be ordered in masonry like style, like on demo, where images have different sizes. But yes, some deformation can happen. There is option to define pictures width and height to try to control this, but if you have different sized images like portrait and landscape, some images could get shrinked in thumbnail size. I have plans of integrating a new logic there to avoid that behavior in one of the future updates.
2) From the latest update ordering option was included. It orders albums in asc, or desc order. It uses the available data it gets from fb, which is limiting, so it might not be always 100% accurate, but it can match the order by date in most cases.
Although I have been successful in getting your gallery to work most of the time, strangely, it doesn’t work on all mobile devices. The odd thing is that it works great on about 8 out of the 11 iOS devices I have tried. They are all running a version of iOS 10.
For example, I have tried testing the gallery on two iPhone 6s Plus devices. On one it works, on the other it does not. When it doesn’t work, I get the light box with no images. It only displays the album name. It’s the same thing on iPhone 6s. Some devices display the images while others do not.
Any suggestions before I scrap the plugin and look for something else?
Thank you for using my plugin,
That is odd. As if it work on one iPhone 6s it will work on all others. As there can be very little variation in system, browser version, etc. Web oriented scripts are not depending on device itself, so what can be the issue there is that you might have checked it from the iPhones which were connected to the internet through mobile carrier network instead of wireless. So they couldn’t fetch all images properly, like on the wireless connection which is stronger. That can be problem often with some websites, so it can be only logical problem here as well.
There were not similar issues so far with other users, and this works on all mobile phones I tested on.
I have tested it now on 6 iphone 6s’s with people from different states, wifi on, wifi off, and there isn’t any consistent results except if it doesn’t load on a device it won’t load on it in the future. Half of them it didn’t work on, also tested on a 3 iPads and it didn’t work on 1 of the 3. Not really sure of what could be going on as it doesn’t make much sense. Don’t know if maybe apple updated the way safari works on the iphones in the last update that prevents images from loading. I had to switch to a different gallery, but it might be worth looking into if it comes up again.
Yes indeed, it doesn’t make sense. I doubt any browser would prevent images from loading, since images make every page. Some other issue might be involved. Most modern browser are improving, going forward, it should be no case that safari is now drown back by becoming more buggy then it is already. And since the nature of the web scripts, it is very strange that it works on some devices of same model. It might be that some security settings are preventing api calls to the facebook or facebook script. You can eventually check the live demo, as maybe it is a case of some theme/plugin issue which is affecting the load of overall page on which gallery is called on your website.
Looking at BUYING – really pleased with your response to COMMENTS, so giving me the idea that yyour a GREAT Author.
But, the DEMO doesn’t work???
can you help as I am at the point of buying.
Thank you for taking interest in FABA, and thank you for your compliments
Oh sorry, it seems my facebook app token expired few days ago, I have added new one, and demo is back again. You can check it out now
Pleased to say I have invested $15 in your module, be prepared for all the questions…
First one is – if you want a fluid window, with absolute positioning via Vh/ Vw… I’ve quickly noticed that the main content DIV, isnt wrapping its content – I set the css width from 1480px to 480px, and the titled images do not auto wrap? So you get a hidden section of one of the titled images to the right.
No doubt as I dig deeper will be able to sort out CSS, using Display:Cover etc to fix the size of an image (first thoughts)
Right, going to be a fun day coding….
End of the fun coding – the EXAMPLE fails to load on a simple setup – thats a Great start…
Now digging deeper, used your own FB token and ID to try and get it to work, but all of sudden I am finding you have to Json files for image data????
So does this pull images down directly from FB?
I have just responded to you in an email
Hello there, I am in your club now. I have a question because I am too lazy to test. In singleAlbum scenario, is there any way to publish the title of the album in the top bar where the breadcrumbs sit ? I know it works for multiple albums, but what about singe album ?
You can type the name of the album inside the html for example – https://www.screencast.com/t/zn2H9o8yr
Hope this helps,
When single album is called, the pictures are directly fetched from an album id, meaning there is no access to the name at that point of api call which is extracted when albums are loaded from the call. If you want to add name to the album you can modify it here – https://www.screencast.com/t/oLjbypaMGLIj on the pointed function you can see a name variable, but you would need to know name of the album that is associated to the album and store it together with id in database and then modify the js function to include it.
10150678928476772/photos?fields=album,images gets the name of the album and the images
Sorry for late reply,
I am glad you managed
Hello! I really like your album but I was looking at the individual photos within the albums on the Live Preview and a lot of them are distorted in the thumbnail view. Is this normal? Thanks!
Thank you for taking interest in faba,
Currently this depends upon the settings and the photos, user can set default photo size, and if photos are all in many different sizes some may not fit in the best way. I am working on improving this display logic to render photos better, and it should be available in next update
That’s a really great gallery and one of … a handful? ... galleries that actually isn’t an album but really a gallery , speak, having the opportunity to showcase many albums.
2 questions, though.
Can this gallery only display albums (photos) from facebook or is it possible to create your own albums using your own media files?
And one extra,
Will each album have their own URL?
Thank you so much
Thank you for taking interest in my plugin,
1 & 2.. FABA is integrated with FB, meaning it can only fetch albums from facebook pages (not profiles). It is not possible to use custom galleries.
3. Each album will open it’s own collection of photos as seen on the demo. Custom links are not available.
