Single album

­

Select a single album from your Facebook profile and display it anywhere on your WordPress site. Instead of a whole gallery section, this is better suited for articles like when you write about an event and wish to show the photos made there. Or when you write about a project and you just insert its single album from your company Facebook Page. Whenever you add new images to the selected gallery on Facebook, your site will reflect the changess. It's always synchronized from Facebook. Say you delete a picture, it'll get removed from Justified Image Grid too. If you change the description of a photo, that text gets updated on your site as well.

Showing photos of a single album

The above example uses the following, generated shortcode (how to use):

Creating a teaser row with the Hidden preset

This focuses on always visible new content. It's great for homepages. The remaining content is still accessible from the lightbox - the gallery has 100 images. This is entirely achieved just by choosing Preset 10: Hidden that uses the "hidden limit" setting.

The above example uses the following, generated shortcode (how to use):

The Feed is similar to the Timeline album, but it may contain different or extra photos. This includes cover picture changes and posts that were posted by users. In other words, things that normally do not appear in the Timeline album. It depends on your specific usage which one you'll find more useful. They may not even be different at times!

Videos album

Videos are treated separately from photos on Facebook. They reside in a special, automatic album called Videos. Justified Image Grid plays them using a HTML5 video player found natively in WordPress. Not every lightbox supports videos, so select an appropriate one.

The above example uses the following, generated shortcode (how to use):
[$justified_image_grid preset=16 lightbox=magnific mobile_lightbox=magnific limit=50 last_row=flexible load_more=click load_more_count_text="(*count* videos left)" initially_load=10 load_more_limit=20 facebook_id=583390655086575 facebook_album=videos]

How does it work and what are the options?

The Shortcode Editor lets you visually select a single album to show.

  • You need to have at least one Facebook Page or a user profile added to Justified Image Grid.
  • Pick a single album that has photos inside it. This includes built-in and user-created Facebook albums.
  • Choose the Videos album to show all your videos from Facebook on your site.
  • Optionally show the Feed which is slightly different from the Timeline album.
  • Go back and edit the shortcode later, seeing which album you have selected.
  • The description text for each photo can be used as caption on thumbnails or in the lightbox.
  • By default 25 photos are shown but you can get up to 500. Split that with Load More!
