    After receiving the notification from facebook i am also concerned about this issue.

    Will February 2013 Breaking Changes of facebook will affect the working of this plugin in any manner ?

    In Italy after receiving the notification this and other publishing plugins don't work anymore. I have not understood what I should/could do to fit for the new facebook whims.

    I am wondering also, after receiving the message from Facebook. If I click, on FB, to enable migration for the March and April changes, will that break things?

    Me too, i think the problem is related to the fact that we didn't enable the "February 2013 Breaking Changes", but for some reason (we past February 6 ?), you can't enable this anymore ? This can't be right, if you are too late enabling this, there isn't a way anymore to rectify this ????

    Hi AntoniusFM

    Once February 6 is passed "February 2013 Breaking Changes" are now forcefully enabled on all apps by default. That's why you cannot see any option to enable it now.

    Same will happen with upcoming breaking changes in March and April.
    You can enable them now if you want to test your app. After the specified date your app with automatically migrated to those changes whether you want it or not.

    The Plugin is working for me. Only error i got in case of republishing a post that already posted on fb.

    Thanks for your quick reply Anand, and it makes sense what you are saying. Nevertheless, the plugin doesn't post to FB anymore after the 6th of Feb, and it seems that i am not the only one having this problem, so is it just coincidental that it stopped working after the 6th ?

    I think that the solution could be to delete the "old" applications and to redo them brand new, as it requires few minutes to create one. I tried to make a new one and I'm asked to apply to new parameters, so it can be done. The problem is that I don't know what of many items insert in the form.
    What is needed is a step by step tutorial to create/fix the applications with the new standards.
    Thank you for who could and want to help, me and a lot of other newbies! :D

    I don't think there is any need to delete and create new app.
    I am running it properly on 2 websites without any problem and there are regularly publishing 20-30 posts per day on facebook page.

    Are you getting any error message on post edit page or on plugin settings page ?

    I get this errors:
    "Some or all access permissions are missing. Please click the button Grant access rights! and authorize the plugin to post to your Facebook profile or page.
    [Error occured at line 774]
    Your page or profile's access permissions could not be verified.
    "

    I have the button "Grant access rights!" fonts red. When I click it, I have a new error added to the former:
    Facebook returned an unexpected dataset. Try to resolve this issue, update the plugin or inform the author about the problem.
    [Error occured at line 597]
    Your application's access permissions could not be granted.

    I had faced similar issue once.

    Please follow the steps below that might solve your issue

    go to http://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=applications
    it will show you the list of all the app that you had authorized.

    look for the App that you are using for facebook page publish.
    Remove app access by click on X link on right of that app.

    Now go back to Facebook Page publish settings in your WordPress Admin.

    This time when your click on Grant Access it will open Facebook Dialog box to authorize the app.
    Further steps will be same as you have done while configuring the plugin for the first time.

    I hope this trick will work for you as it had worked for me.

    click on Grant Access it will open Facebook Dialog box to authorize the app.

    Thank you anand.au14 for the help.
    I did it, the FB dialog appeared, but after clicking it I was slammed back to the plugin setup page with the 2 pink frames with the known errors.
    Beside, opening one of the different links at the left of the application, that I'm not able to find again... appear a message saying that the application has not been sent for review...
    For the moment I'm posting manually, what a...

    Hi Anand, one more question regarding the "February 2013 Breaking Changes" if these changes are forcefully enabled, why does it alert me and ask me to fix it (Fix Now) ?

    Hi AntoniusFM

    As per my understanding the notification you got is before Feb 6.
    It was just to notify that some major changer are going to be rolled out soon so check your app.

    This notification still might be there on app settings page.
    That part is just a Developer alert section which will list all the developer alerts you have got.

    You can get more info about Facebook's Breaking Change policy here

    Hi there,
    I just discovered this plugin today and followed all the steps given in the description without any noticable problems. However it doesn't send the posts to my facebook page. I don't get any kind of error message in wordpress. I also don't get any error message when I store the settings of this plugin. Tried with and without ignoring SSL certificates.
    Any ideas? Is there a way to turn error reporting on?
    Thanks

    Hi zu1u, so it should be working. If the article is new the checkbox should be checked by default, if you are updating an article it should be empty and you can check it if you want to republish. So I don't know why the plugin is not publishing.

    Is this going to get fixed?

    Some or all access permissions are missing. Please click the button Grant access rights! and authorize the plugin to post to your Facebook profile or page.
    [Error occured at line 774]

    Your page or profile's access permissions could not be verified.

    i'm not quite sure how i did it but i got mine working again. it involved deleting my existing app though, and i'm too nervous about it to try to duplicate the process and confirm it, so try this at your own risk. a week ago i deleted the existing app for my website first. just now though, i went back to the Facebook Page Publish settings and clicked on the button to the right of the Application ID field. i don't recall exactly what it said, since now it says something different. it was something about granting access. this sent me back to facebook where i granted access to the new app. as soon as i'd granted access the plugin settings went back to green and no more error code at the top of the page.

    I have solved the problem, but not with the Facebook Page Publish plugin. I think that the problem is generated from the plugin itself that needs to be fix. I tried everything with it and with facebook Page Publish 2 too without results. Those plugins may work depending from the theme that you are using.
    I have solved with Simple Facebook Connect.

    These are my steps done:
    1. Delete FPP plugin and install Simple Facebook Connect and activate it.
    2 click the link to go to settings.
    Click the link to go to the FB apps.
    3 Delete your application. I did because I had red tagged advices February 2013 Breaking Changes to fix etc. and I have messed up everything trying to fix it.
    Create a new fresh application with the same name o even better name. Just insert four things:
    * Display name
    * Namespace
    * Email address
    * and in "Website with Facebook Login" add the Url of your site.
    Don't do anything else and save. That's it. Now you have a new, brand new, fresh application w/o warning, red tags or advices of any kind!

    Go back to the plugin insert App ID, App Secret and your fanpage ID then do all the setting you want. You can autopublish either on your profile page and on one other page of yours, if you like. And when you edit a page or post you have 2 buttons to publish on your page or profile even if the post has been already published.
    You can see one of my site and from the FB window with friend face on the right column you can go to the dedicated fb page with an article republished properly.

    Be sure to set the image issues to get the post published with images.

    DO NOT follow the instructions above. Deleting your app from Facebook will delete all of your previous status updates on your page.

    Not true. Everything is in its place on the page. You can verify yourself.
    Anyway It's everyone responsibility to do or not the handling I suggest. It works wonderful for me and others.
