Access Facebook Photo Albums using PHP - v1.0

12 comments
I think it will be great if you can access your Facebook photo albums on your website. I have created an easy way to access your Facebook albums and photos on your site. Like the previous tutorial on 'How to upload photos on Facebook using PHP', this tutorial also requires the appId and secret code of your Facebook application. I will release updates of this post in near future The new version will include the comments posting on the photos.
Lets see it working...




Live Demo Download Script
PHP Code:
<?php
 require_once 'library/facebook.php';
 try{
  $facebook = new Facebook(array(
    'appId' => $app_id,
    'secret' => $app_secret,
    'cookie' => true
  ));
  if(is_null($facebook->getUser()))
  {
    header("Location:{$facebook->getLoginUrl(array('req_perms' => 'user_status,publish_stream,user_photos'))}");
    exit;
  }
  $me = $facebook->api('/me');
 }catch(Exception $e){
  echo $e->getMessage();
  echo '<p>Please try clearing your browser cookies or <a href="http://demos.frnzzz.com/fbAlbum/photos.php">click here</a>.</p>';
  die;
 }
?>
