IK Facebook Plugin

IK Facebook is an easy-to-use plugin for adding a Custom Facebook Feed of any Public Facebook Page to your site, with a shortcode or widget.

Help! I need a Facebook App ID / Facebook Secret Key!

OK! We have a great page with some helpful information here.

Follow the information on that page to create a Simple Facebook App - you'll be guided along the way to get your App ID, Secret Key, and any other info you may need.

Ack! All I see is 'IK FB: Please check your settings.' - What do I do?

It's all good! This just means there is no feed data - this could be due to bad settings, including a bad Page ID, App ID, or Secret Key, or it could be due to some other error. Be sure to check your Facebook Page's Privacy Settings, too! Check the plugin instructions for help (or send us a message if you think it's an error.)

So what's up with this 'Publicly Accessible Page' thing?

OK, so here's the deal:

Your Facebook Feed needs to come from a Publicly Accessible Facebook page. If your page is Private, if it’s a Personal Profile and not a Page, or if you have an Age Limit set that thus requires the user to login, the plugin won't be able to display the feed data (it will instead just display the page title, like button, and profile pic - even that can be dependent upon your settings.)

Here's how to test if your page is Public or Private:

Logout of Facebook and then try to visit the Facebook Page in question. If Facebook wants you to login to be able to view the Feed, then this page is not Publicly Accessible. You just need to update the Page's relevant settings so that it is.

I've set an image width on the options page, but it isn't working!

No worries! Did you include any non-integer characters? Be sure the width is just something like "250" (ignore the quotes) - you don't need to include "px".

Instead of a Like Button, all I see is "Error"!

That probably means the URL you've given the Like Button is invalid. Sometimes this happens in the feed widget, if the URL isn't a valid Facebook Page.

Other people's posts are showing up on my wall! How do I stop it?

If you are using the Free version of the plugin, you'll need to purchase WP Social Pro first. Once installed, look for the option titled "Only Show Page Owner's Posts". When that is checked, these posts will be hidden from view.

Hey! I need more control over the styling of my feed, but I don't know CSS!

If you are using the Free version of the plugin, you'll need to purchase WP Social Pro first. Once installed, look for the long list of options under the heading "Display Options". You will be able to use these to control font size and color for all of the different text elements, feed width and height for the in page and sidebar versions each, and more being added all the time!

I see this plugin uses caching. Do I need to do anything for this?

Nope! Thanks to the WordPress Transient API, all you have to do is sit back and relax and we'll do the rest!

I think I broke my date formatting! Help!

It's OK! Just place %B %d in the field, and you'll be back to default!

I Want All Of My Posts Visible -- Not Contained In A Box!

Try using the "No Style" theme -- this will output everything in a list. You can also turn off the Like Button, Feed Title, and Profile Pic to have it look more like a list of posts.

Urk! How to find my Album's ID for outputting a photo gallery?

OK, try this: looking at the following URL, you want to grab the number that appears directly after "set=a." and before the next period - facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.539627829386059.148135.322657451083099&type=3

In this case, the Facebook Album ID is '539627829386059'.
