_x000D_ _x000D_ I'm working on a CMS that fetches a user's profile image from their Facebook URL (that is, http://facebook.com/users_unique_url). How can I accomplish this? Is there a Faceboook API call that fetches a user's profile image URL without the user needing to Allow the application?

_x000D_ Simply fetch the data through this URL: http://graph.facebook.com/userid_here/picture Replace userid_here with id of the user you want to get the photo of. You can also use HTTPS as well. You can use the PHP's file_get_contents function to read that URL and process the retrieved data. Resource: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/api Note: In php.ini, you need to make sure that the OpenSSL extension is enabled to use thefile_get_contents function of PHP to read that URL.
