    Hi Dennis,

    Try these steps.

    1. Make sure the plugin says you are connected
    2. Double-check by manually renewing the access token (in the RFB options screen)
    3. Empty the cache (in the RFB options screen)

    I had already done 1 and 2, which I repeated just now.
    "Facebook API status: Connected" like before.
    And I did 3, renew cache.
    No change, except the top post is now your latest:
    "Newsletter Sign-Up (one of my WordPress plugins) is getting close to 100.000 downloads. Who's using it? :)"

    THE PROBLEM WAS the default "Facebook id" -- it was pre-filled with yours, dannyvankonencom, so it was pulling your feed. (Interesting, I could pull anyone's public feed this way?)

    I changed the field to my Facebook page's ID, energyprioritiesmag, and refreshed the cache again. Now it is pulling my page feed.

    I'm sure this was somewhere in the instructions and I missed it, sorry for the trouble.
