The developer is very friendly and quickly responds to emails. A great extension from a great developer. – I highly recommend this extension to anybody looking for easy to use, low maintenance FB photo integration.
i migrated the site to 2.5 and used JFBAlbum. the site is less than 100MB now. woo hoo!
JFBAlbum is super easy to install, configure and get looking good fast. I'm an intermediate to advanced experience level - yet, i'm confident a beginner can use this extension with ease.
since then, another client has purchased the component and it's working great on their site too (albeit, still in development).
they update this component as fast as they need to when changes at facebook come up. it's incredible. i wish every developer was as on it as afzal. he rocks. i never know there's a problem until my client forwards me the email that they send when there's an update. just awesome.
to those wondering - yes, it's the best $20 bucks spent ever. i am so grateful.
another 5 stars vote. thanks, afzal.
I also like the support the developer has given after the purchase. He has sent updates and fixes notices almost inmediatelly everytime Facebook decides to change something in their code again.
I have spent YEARS trying to find something that works well, looks good, and most importantly is easy for my clients to use. PhocaGallery has been the best option, but it has still had its issues.
This is so awesome because it doesn't do anything except embed your existing Facebook galleries. Why have 2 separate galleries? Why upload photos twice? Facebook already has the best user-managed photo gallery system available, and this allows the user to work with their photos in an environment they're already familiar with, and have them available on their own website automagically!
I'd give it 10 stars if that were and option. Best $20 I've ever spent.
I have fought with several different photo galleries over the years and although I was able to use several of them, it was always difficult explaining to my clients about upload size limits, photo resizing, and the details of how to get complicated galleries to work. Facebook has a powerful and easy to use photo system and this Component and Module make it so easy to utilize and display your Facebook albums it is crazy!
Thanks for such an amazing extension!!!
