    Hi,

    I just set up the plugin on my wordpress and after few minutes of test I can see it doesn't work properly.

    In fact, the settings are OK, my Facebook account is connected to my wordpress, the Mention Facebook Friends works perfectly but the Mention Facebook Page doesn't work at all.
    The plugin found my page without problem but when I submit my post, nothing appears on my facebook fan page.

    Then, the Facebook Boxes are only available on 'Post'. It would be great to have them on our custom post types (pretty easy to do).

    To finish, Congrats, I was waiting for this kind of plugin for a while :-)

    " nothing appears on my facebook fan page."

    Does the Page allow posts from users?

    "Then, the Facebook Boxes are only available on 'Post'. It would be great to have them on our custom post types (pretty easy to do)."

    This sounds cool. We're going to put the plugin up on GitHub soon. Do you want to contribute the code for this?

    Matt,

    Yes the page allows posts from users, that's why i really don't understand why it doesn't work.

    And yes it would be interesting to contribute for this feature. Let me know when we could do that ;-).

    Thanks.

    @Gayedicon, the Facebook Friends Boxes should be on the right sidebar when you're editing or writing a post in 'Posts'.

    Hi there,

    I'm working on Enable Publishing to an Author's Timeline. And have Entered 'publish' and clicked 'Submit'. I can't get through the following instructions. It would help me a lot if you could send more thorough or detailed instruction on how to do the following. I may have done mistakes along the way because I got this error message http://screencast.com/t/b0q00tfft
    Please advise what have I done wrong. I love this new plug-in and wanted to successfully use this on my site. Here is the excerpt from the installation instruction:

    For 'Connected Object Types:', enter 'article' and click on the auto-complete.

    In order for these posts to authors' Timelines to be public, you will need to submit your action for approval.

    Authenticate with Facebook in the WordPress control panel (you will see a status message at the top, asking you to do so).

    Publish a post or page to your WordPress site. You should see the post on your Timeline. You can delete the blog post.

    Go back to the Open Graph tab in your app settings and click on the 'Submit' link next to the new publish action. This submits it for approval, which allows the public to see content posted from the author.

    Now, all authors on your WordPress blog will see a notification at the top of the admin control panel prompting them to authenticate with Facebook. Once they do that, all of their new Posts and Pages will post to their Timeline.

    Thanks.

    Hi Matt, I have the same problem.

    "Does the Page allow posts from users?"

    Where can I check this? On the Manage Permissions, there is a option for "Everyone can post to guladigital.com's timeline" - is that it? I'd like not to turn on this option.

    Also, even though I linked my account ok and I can choose the pag from Facebook plugin settings, when I got to the Apps for my fan page, the app I created is not listed there. Maybe this is the problem?

    Please help.
