Facebook Photo Import

Facebook Photo Import

Hi Alex,

I posted this question in StackOverflow. I would like some assistance as I am trying to get photos downloading on my server again.

I used the code here: … -my-server

Previously a while back I was using this code with a different cdn url when I noticed it was not working. As soon as I changed the cdn to the one stated on that post it started to work. Now its not working again. Basically photos are saved with 0 Bytes on my server using that code.

I had this working on my joomla 1.5 site. If you login and create a memorial then click to create a new albums as a facebook user you will see a button that allows you to request permissions this button I also had working in the way that it would request then reload the page if u are a facebook user. This is currently not working either. Anyhow if you reload the page you will notice that your albums are listed below. You have the option to select a photo and then put a title then click on save. When you do that you get the error attached. Can you please help me figure this out. 

PS I tried to attach the error screen shot but it would not let me. If you go to my live site and try to create an album you will see the error when you save the image.

Please let me know what's wrong. I cannot seem to send private messages. I get couple errors.

Re: Facebook Photo Import

Sorry for the Private Message issue. We upgraded our forum this morning and are working through a few issues. Please try again, we'd love to know if that gets it going.

As for your issue, the main site looks to be offline. I can't login using Facebook on the *** site I've used before. Can you post (or private message, which will hopefully work) the site I should test on?

The big question is where are you getting the $fb_filename in your code? If you're using the graph API or a FQL query, it should return the right URL even as FB's CDN changes. If you're dynamically guessing the image name and just appending that to a hard-coded CDN, that will cause problems like this as Facebook's CDN's change a lot. We've dealt with those types of issues before.. we know.

Let us know what you're using to get the $fb_filename parameter and we'll see how we can help.
