Or,

Adding a Facebook gallery to your teamthing page or news article is incredibly easy, just:

  • Add or edit and existing page or news item.
  • Click the ‘Add Facebook Galley’ Button above your visual editor (if this button does not exist on your screen then you need to goto Dashboard>Plugins>Installed Plugins and enable the ‘Facebook Vinyl’ plugin).
