Widget that lists your recent Facebook page or profile updates / posts. A faster/prettier/more customizable alternative to Facebooks Like Box.
This plugin adds a widget to your WordPress installation which you can use to list your X most recent Facebook posts. This can be either posts from your personal profile or from one of your fanpages. An example of the widget can be found here.
This plugin gives you the freedom to style your most recent facebook posts using plain old CSS, thus giving you much more freedom. Also, this plugin outputs valid HTML. Iframes are a thing of the past. Your Facebook posts are cached on your server so it is somewhat faster too.
Create a new Facebook application and fill in the field where it asks for your website URL. Then go to the configuration page of Recent Facebook Posts and copy-paste your App ID and App Secret. Have a look at the screenshots if you're not clear about which fields you need.
In order to query content on Facebook an application is needed. Facebook doesn't allow their content publicly to anyone, they want to know "who is asking". You don't need to submit your app to the App Center in order for it to work though.
You are running the plugin on a different (sub)domain then specified in your FB app configuration. Fix it by correctly setting your "Site URL" or by adding an App Domain if you are running the plugin on a subdomain.
Please check if the page you are trying to fetch posts from has publicly available posts. The privacy setting of your status updates has to be "everyone" in order for the plugin to "see" your posts.
IMO, appearance should be handled by the theme you are using. This is why your custom CSS rules should be added to your theme's stylesheet file. You can find this file by browsing (over FTP) to
/wp-content/themes/your-theme-name/style.css, or you can just use the WP Editor under Appearance > Editor.
Currently, no. This plugin currently only works with pages and personal profiles.
