[resolved] I don't understand Facebook for WordPress plugin (2 posts)

    Hello everyone!

    I'm migrating from html+css to wordpress and getting very confused with the Facebook for WordPress -plugin.
    I've used iframe like -buttons and XFBML -codes to successfully have like buttons with my HTML -pages. I do not have a very deep understanding but I've still gotten them to work :)

    What I'd like to do would be to connect my facebook fan page for a band, with my wordpress site for the same band.
    I'd like my wordpress site to have a like -button etc when clicked, the user would like my facebook-page.
    And it would be nice if my facebook page would be connected with my wordpress site so that when I post to wordpress, it would show up on my facebook page timeline etc.
    I could of course use iFrame's or stuff like that, but I think when properly used, the facebook plugin is probably a better idea and allows for more nice stuff.

    I tried the http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/facebook/ Facebook plugin for wordpress, but unfortunately I simply don't understand how to use it.
    I don't understand how to connect my facebook page with the new app that I'm creating. I created an app but didin't find any place where I would connect the app with my facebook-page.
    Or is this a wrong approach entirely?
    I feel like I shouldn't be making an app, but just connecting my page somehow.

    Maybe someone could point me to a blogpost or something that would get me on the right track, because I seem to be missing something entirely.

    Thank you very much for your patience with a newbie like me.

    I also tried Simple Facebook Connect -plugin but I don't understand any of that either. I have the codes, the Facebook Application ID, Facebook Application Secret and Facebook Fan Page but none of the stuff seems to be working.
    In the end it says:
    "No User or Access Token found. Try re-saving this page.
    Application Access Token not found. Try re-saving this page.
    Fan Page Access Token not found. Try re-saving this page."

    Should I just use the iFrame or something, or is there a simple way to get these facebook plugins working? Just a bump in the right direction would be much appreciated!

    Thank you very much.
