View the list of your Facebook Page's albums and view the album you wish to use. You're almost set, now you just need to copy the URL the your page's photo album.

Now create or edit your WordPress post or page that you'd like to display some Facebook photos in. The shortcode for the plugin is [fbalbum url="{URL}"] to get the basics of the plugin to work properly. Your page or post's content should look similar to below.

Error: Facebook API came back with a result, but it had no photos!

This error means that Facebook responded, but it did not provide any photos. Generally this means there was an authentication issue - as in a photo album not on a Facebook Page or not set as public was attempted to be accessed.

Error: Album ID was empty

The URL copied from Facebook was not copied correctly. Part of the set of numbers in a Facebook album URL are the album's Graph ID. This ID is how the Facebook API identifies data.

Error: Facebook API returned empty result. Please double check your Facebook album URL.

This error means that no data was received by Facebook. This is generally a temporary issue due to your web server not being able to connect to Facebook. If this error continually persists contact your web host, or contact me for support.
