Facebook images now on blog

superawesome

I added a set of random images in the right sidebar. Because Facebook doesn’t offer users the ability to publish openly accessible RSS feeds of photos (booooo!), I had to do a bit of a hack job to make this work. All images were downloaded from my profile using FaceDown. I could have just re-uploaded them to WordPress right then using the new image uploader, but to be more efficient (I was importing around 150 photos), I uploaded a zip file to my server, unzipped the file in Putty, then brought the images into the Media Library using a handy WP importer plugin called Add from Server. The images themselves are then displayed with the sidebar widget in NextGen Gallery. And yes, I’m aware that this entire post was only interesting to about 7 people in the world, none of whom read this blog.
