    Hi,

    Thanks for this plug-in. However I am getting a Facebook Syndication Error in my widget. I believe I have set my accessibility to public on my Facebook page. My website is at http://soulthoughts.com

    Thanks,

    Nils

    Any thoughts?

    Hi Nils,

    Install the latest version of the plugin. Try using mashable's facebook page 18807449704

    If the plugin works with this id, it indicates there may be a problem with your fb page.

    Thanks
    Lakshmanan

    I am also getting a similar problem. It was working and has just stopped working. It outputs the following error:

    Array

    RSS Feed currently unavailable.

    The FB id is 190380830997773.

    Any suggestions as to why its stopped?

    Hi, great plugin but it doesn't work with my ID (115742141848150, http://t3sjalvskydd.se/nyheter-event-2/facebook/ ). I tried with 18807449704 (Mashables) and that one worked. I noticed that my ID is 4 digits longer, is that a problem?

    If the plugin works with this id, it indicates there may be a problem with your fb page.

    What type of problem and how can I solve it?

    I have the latest version installed...

    Best regards,
    Robert

    Solved it!

    It was an restriction in the age-field (was set to "+17") but now set it to Anyone (+13). The problem is that it would be good if I could maintain the age-restriction because it is a self-defense site and we have some graphic content.

    Of course people (kids/underaged) can just write the URL but to make it more difficult when they search on Facebook would be great if possible.

    Robert,

    Glad to hear you fixed it. I am having a similar problem and cannot find where to set the age-field in Facebook. Can you give some pointers?

    Go to edit page and choose "permissions" (2nd choice from above). Third choice is "Age restrictions".

    Maybe the labels are little different because I use Swedish language but should be easy to find, now =)
    ________________________________________________________________

    Two other questions: I have a dark theme and the text "Be the first to like" or something like that is hardly possible to see. I have tried to change in the CSS but can´t find the "tag".

    Other thing... It gets pretty messy with so many titles. I have the maintitle, then the same title but it´s not possible to format that without formating the rest of the text that comes under a picture or the title of the content (i.e. youtube-link or similar).

    How can I format that repeated non-formated text right under the "feed_title" without formating the rest of the text.

    Any ideas?

    Hi Robert,

    The plugin uses light color scheme for facebook like button.

    You can change it to dark since you are using a dark theme.

    Please change colorscheme=light to colorscheme=dark in the iframe code of like button

    The feed returns a title and a description. You can format whole description but not a part of it.

    Feed description is purely plain text, there will not be <p>, <div>, <h>, <span> or other html tags. So I don't think we can apply CSS formatting for a particular portion of the description

    But you can format an image or a link in the feed.

    Thanks for your patience

    I was wondering if we got this resolved, Lakshmananphp. Is it only possible to grab the feed if the content is all ages? I'm developing two sites for alcohol companies and they can't raise the age restriction for legal reasons, but having this feed is vital to their site. I'd prefer to use you fantastic plugin if I can.

    Hi Adam,

    There is some access restriction. Thats why your page shows Syndication Error.

    Facebook allows rss feeds for pages/group with "Everyone" as privacy settings.

    Thanks,
    Lakshmanan.

    Just so I understand, Facebook won't allow you to grab the feed with any age restrictions? That's what I was afraid of, thank you for clearing that up.

    In response to ShoGun.se, excuse my ignorance, but I can't see where to go to the edit page and choose "permissions" to change the age restrictions. I have account settings and privacy settings. Is it somewhere in there?

    Hi lakshmananphp,

    I am having a similar problem where the plugin is returning a feed error. I have checked the mashable one and it is working fine.

    The page id is 479706785439, any help would be greatly appreciated as I am about to put a website live using your plugin.

    Thanks,

    I had the same problem, but I have other pages I managed that worked fine. I compared the settings and experimented until I figured it out. What worked for me was to change the country restrictions to "Hide this page from viewers in these countries" but don't have anything listed in the Country Restrictions box.

    Always happy to help. I gain so much from forums like these and it's the least I can do to share with others what I learn. As well as to document my findings so I can go back to it when I forget how I'd done something :)
