The "AllEvents Magnet – Facebook" plugin integrates events from Facebook into AllEvents Magnet through a specific plugin.
If you have problems installing or updating the extension, please try the manual installation process as described here: docs.joomla.org/Installing_an_extension
You need to follow the steps on this page : Creating an App ID - App Development - Facebook for Developers
Go to the plugin manager in the Joomla administration back end, edit the AllEvents Magnet – Facebook plugin and update the Facebook App data.

|Thumbnail||You can use this to get a pre-specified size of picture.||list||
|Graphic Library||Graphic Library to use in the image processing (check in the Test Libraries tab witch libraries are available on you server)||list||
|Shell Execute Path||Path to the ImageMagick convert command (necessary only if you use Imagick Shell Execute processing - eg. convert or /usr/bin/convert);||text||(default:
|Cache Folder||Folder where to save images after the processing||text||(default:
|Default Size Poster||Default size to be applied to each image for a Poster image||text||(default: ``)|

You can define multiple options to apply in any image process import. A set of options is defined in the following form:
opt1=val1, opt2=val2, optN=valN
For each image type in event, you can define the following options:
Applying w and h options together without crop options can generate different results according to the used library (Imagick Shell Execute applies black bands in the leftover space, PHP Imagick Class stretches the image while JImage (GD) only considers the lower value between w and h). So generally the best practice is to indicate only one of the w or h parameter or else, if you want to set both parameters, it is recommended to apply also the crop option, avoiding unwanted results.
