Creating a slideshow, slider, or carousel from your Facebook posts

If you’re using the Pro version of the Custom Facebook Feed WordPress plugin then you can use our Carousel extension to create sliding carousels out of your Facebook content.

If you’re using the free WordPress plugin, or the PHP Standalone version, then it’s possible to achieve a basic slideshow by doing the following:

1) Add a class to the shortcode of the feed that you want to convert into a slideshow:

One of my emails, in a back and forth to this company, to ask questions about a product, before I actually buy it. The absurdity? By now, it would have been far easer just to ... errr. call me. Welcome to tech sales in the new generation: First tip? Banish the "I am sorry you feel that way" from your lexicon. You sound like Verizon customer service. Not the highly educated individual I presume I am dealing with. That is the perfect passive aggressive non answer that is all the rage in the '20s.. You aren't really apologizing, you just feel badly that in some form, i may feel hurt. I haven't purchased your product. As a self-employed journalist, for whom budget decisions always loom large, i avoid purchases from companies that are incapable of basic human interaction Let's see how this movie goes: I email you a few questions, you respond. That immediately triggers follow up questions, which I in turn ask of you. A Day or so later, we may have resolution. Or, 5 min of actually engaging in a back & forth, and you get a credit card. Sadly, tech companies are far more enamored of the method of information delivery, than results. I'm sure many deal with your company, based on the absence of any alternative. What would be a far more interesting analysis? How many consumers simply, when met with this "form of communication", simply walked away. BTW, my hosting provider, Blue Host, has actual trained sales people on the line.(Gasp! How positively 1990's of them!) As a result of exactly two brief (verbal) conversations, I have purchased a hosting package, as well as paid support.

I'm an existing customer with an All Access bundle. can I get 65% off renewal? it's due on the 29th March

Broke my feed. Shows my photo, bio and follow button but no actual images. Just a blank area. It was working fine for months before this!

its not showing any pictures with the new update using the divi theme builder did all that it says to do on your knowledge base.

Hey guys! I am a social media professional, and I would like to mention about Rannkly, a powerful social media tool that I recently stumbled upon. And well let me tell you that it is a lot better than Buffer.@https://www.facebook.com/reputationmanagement/

3) Add the following JavaScript to your site. This can be done manually using a custom JavaScript plugin. For further information see our documentation here. Please note, if you change the class option in the shortcode above to be anything but “slideshow” then make sure to change that on the first line of the snippet below:

var shortcodeClass = 'slideshow',
    cffSpeed = 5000, 
    $cff = $('#cff.'+ shortcodeClass);
    $cffItem = $cff.find('.cff-item'),
    cffNum = $cffItem.length,
    cffCur = 0;
$cffItem.hide();
setTimeout(function(){ $cff.find('.cff-item').eq(0).show(); }, 200);
setInterval(function(){
    $cff.find('.cff-item').eq(cffCur).fadeOut( "fast", function() {
        if( cffCur == cffNum-1 ) cffCur = -1;
        cffCur++;
        $cff.find('.cff-item').eq(cffCur).fadeIn();
    });
}, cffSpeed);

4) You can change the speed of the transition by editing the cffSpeed = 5000 value at the top of the snippet. 5000 is equal to 5 seconds (5000ms).
