Turtle's new Facebook commenting will not only add a handy commenting tool to your albums but it will manage all the community integration, posting to timeline, notifications, etc. – and thanks to Facebook's networking effect your albums can reach 100s of people in no time. Many users of Turtle, I guess, haven't even noticed the new Facebook commenting tool, or perhaps thought it's something too complicated for them. No, I can tell you, it shouldn't – even I was surprised how smooth it goes. Now I'll show you the 3 easy steps to put this awesome tool into good use.
In order you can manage your Facebook Commenting app you will need to create a new App on Facebook. Don't worry, you don't need to be a coder to be able to do that. Go to this page: Facebook Apps, give it a name and you're good to go. (From jAlbum simply click the Sign up link on Turtle's settings window and go to Apps.)
Now that Facebook has created an app for you can simply copy the App ID to jAlbum's appropriate box.
Go to Turtle's Social settings tab and turn on Enable Facebook commenting. Paste the app ID you've copied from the Facebook site. Normally you don't need to change the Number of posts to show, but you can make it a bit higher if there's enough space. Note, this is not the total number of comments to show, only the number of comments to show in the initial view – the visitors can expand it any time if they want to see more.
Make the album and Upload to your site! Please note, you cannot test the Facebook commenting on the local Preview, because that?s not visible to Facebook servers.
No, unfortunately if the page is not public to Facebook, you can't integrate a facebook commenting into it.
Trying to understand this feature. Is it correct that if I have a Photo Album on a protected server, then I can't use this feature? I have a photo album that isn't meant to be shared generally, but is meant to be shared among a group of people who traveled together. I was hoping to use this new commenting feature to enable them to each add "captions" to the images. But that's not going to work, is it?
Thanks! And Turtle skin is awesome!
