This is a purely FYI post.
So I thought I was going insane and missing something when trying to get the integration working. Turns out there was a session start conflict between the Magento WordPress Plugin and the All in one Event Calendar Timely
The exact conflict lies in the facebook connector file. All thats needed it to comment out the session_start line and everything work. Obviously should you wish to use the facebook connector you're gonna be out of luck.
Hopefully this will have some people a bit of time!!
