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!!!
I also used the NoNumber Modules Anywhere extension to insert an album into an article. I was having a problem configuring the JCE Editor to use the Insert Module button to insert a module (containing a facebook album) in articles. It was not a JFBAlbum issue but a JCE Editor problem however the developer was very gracious and helped me configure JCE Editor to properly use the Insert Module button. Excellent technical support even when the issue was not with the extension. Well worth the money spent.
I am so glad I do not have to explain to clients about image resizing & optimizing for photo albums on the website. They already know how to upload albums to facebook!
It's simple and the support just great.
This is the first extension that deserve my First JED review, and i allready tried hundreds of them.
So, if you need the features that it was developed to do, don't waist more time and aquire it.
It is very easy to install and to setup, the website is very detailed in its installation and use as well.
After a recent FB change the website broke, I emailed the developer and he had a fix for us very quickly. Excellent support!
No installation or implementation issues for most of the sites I am using it with except for my own business site and my issue is just because I am using SSL on my site but Facebook passes the thumbnail links via http, not https. I emailed the developer and received a response very quickly with an attempt to work around the problem but in the end, it is simply the limitations of working with Facebook itself, not a problem with the Module. The developer was very helpful and even though the problem was because of Facebook, he tried to help find a solution.
All in all, I highly recommend this module to everyone. My plan is to actually use this module to implement photo galleries on some of my clients websites. Most photo galleries have issues with photo sizes when you are on a shared hosting server so I can have my clients simply use Facebook's powerful servers and photo processing system to upload to and store images and implement the module to display them on the websites very nicely.
