JSL3 Facebook Wall Feed

Displays your Facebook wall as a widget or through shortcode on a post or page.

Configuration

  1. Create your Facebook App. NOTE: You cannot use a Facebook Page to create a Facebook App. You must use your personal Facebook profile. However, once you create your Facebook App, you can use its App ID and App Secret along with the Facebook ID of the Facebook Page you want to get the feed from on the settings page for the plugin.

  2. If you get a Request for Permission prompt, then Allow Developer to access your basic information.

  3. Click Create New App.

  4. Enter any App Name. I suggest using the name of your blog. All the other entries are optional. Click Continue. You will be prompted with a security check.

  5. On your App page, enter your App Domain. Set Sandbox Mode to Disabled. Under Select how your app integrates with Facebook click Website with Facebook Login and enter your Site URL. Do not use **www.* in your App Domain or Site URL. Save your changes.

  6. Record your App ID and App Secret. You will need these later.

  7. Go to JSL3 Facebook Wall Feed under Settings on the Dashboard menu.

  8. Enter your Facebook ID. If you do not know your Facebook ID, then use the Graph API Explorer. Click Get Access Token. You may be prompted to log in. If you are prompted to Select permissions, click Get Access Token. In the text box next to the Submit button, enter the Facebook Username used in your Facebook URL (for example, my Facebook URL is http://www.facebook.com/takanudo so my Facebook Username is takanudo) followed by ?fields=id. Click Submit. Your Facebook ID will be in the results. Enter the App ID and App Secret you recorded earlier. Click Save Changes.

  9. You will be redirected to Facebook. You may be prompted to Log In a couple of times.

  10. Click Okay to give your App permission to acess your public profile, friend list, News Feed, status updates and groups and your friends' groups.

  11. Click Okay to give your App permission to manage your Pages.

  12. You will be returned to the JSL3 Facebook Wall Feed settings page with your Access Token and its expiration date.

Widget Usage

  1. Go to Widgets under Appearance on the Dashboard menu.

  2. Drag the JSL3 Facebook Wall Feed widget to the sidebar of your choice.

  3. Give the widget a title (or leave it blank) and enter how many posts you want to get from your wall. You may also enter the Facebook ID of the Facebook page you want to display in the widget. If you leave the Facebook ID blank, the widget will use the Facebook ID entered on the settings page for the plugin. Click Save.

  4. Go check out your Facebook Wall Feed on your WordPress site.

Shortcode Usage

  1. Add the shortcode [jsl3_fwf] or [jsl3_fwf limit="1"] or even [jsl3_fwf limit="1" fb_id="1405307559"] to the Text view of a post or page. If you do not enter a Facebook ID, the plugin will use the Facebook ID entered on the settings page for the plugin.

  2. View your Facebook Wall Feed on your WordPress post or page.
