Now let’s take a look at the easiest way you can show Facebook albums on your WordPress site.

Easiest Way to Sync WordPress With Facebook

In the past, you could use the WordPress oEmbed feature to embed Facebook content on your website free of any hassle.

You could paste the link to your Facebook album and WordPress would automatically display it.

But on October 24, 2022, WordPress dropped support for oEmbeds. As a result, you now have to register with Facebook as an app developer to add Facebook content to your site.

Not only is that time-consuming, it’s a lot more complex as well.
