HELP: "Fatal Error"!!! (Facebook Plugin) (2 posts)

    I've just installed the Facebook plugin (v 1.1.11) on my wordpress.org site. The installation tab states that it's 2 simple steps as follows:

    1. Install Facebook for WordPress either via the WordPress.org plugin directory, or by uploading the files to your server (in the /wp-content/plugins/ directory).

    2. After activating the plugin, you will be asked to set up your Facebook application or enter existing credentials copied from the Facebook Developers site.

    I performed step 1 and then step 2. Step 2 above states that subsequent to activation, "you will be asked to set up your Facebook application...". However this did not happen. I was not asked, nor prompted in any way once I clicked on the "activate" button. All that happened was that I immediately had the facebook plugin sitting in my list of plugins with 3 options listed underneath: Deactivate, Edit & Settings.

    When I click on settings, I get the following message:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_current_screen() in /data/23/2/67/17/2230506/user/2451151/htdocs/wp-content/plugins/facebook/admin/settings-app.php on line 432

    There are no other prompts or errors that I can see. I have no idea what this means nor do I know how to proceed. Does this error have any thing to do with the fact that I wasn't prompted to set up the application after activation, as the Plugin Instructions promised? I thought this was going to be easier than this... No idea how to resolve the problem.

    Any help or guidance would be much appreciated! Thanks!

    Which version of WordPress is installed on the site? The get_current_screen() function is part of WordPress.
