    The widget works, but it only displays text. And the Like and Comment buttons that appear at the bottom of each post displayed in your demo are missing.

    Hi Angela,

    Did you enable them in the widget options? You have to check the checkbox that says "show comment count".

    Also, did you enable images in the RFB options screen?

    Hi Danny

    Found the checkbox for comment count. Working fine. Duh.

    I don't seem to have an RFB options screen. Where should that be?

    Thanks!

    Angela

    Hi Angela,

    In your WordPress admin panel, go to Options (or Settings, I'm not sure at the moment) and find the "Recent Facebook Posts" menu item.

    Glad to know the comment and like count is working fine for you as well!

    Good luck, Danny.

    Hi Danny

    In my settings screen, this is what I see:

    Configuration
    Facebook API Status: Connected
    App ID
    App Secret
    Facebook numeric ID
    Cache expiry time
    Image source size
    Image width
    Image height
    Link text
    Open link in new window
    Load some default CSS
    Access token (with test/renew button)
    Cache (renew cache button)

    No RFB.

    I just installed this plugin and I'm having the same issue. I get the text for the recent posts, but the Like and Comments are just text links and no images will show. I have tried both Thumbnails and Normal and tried various widths and heights and even taking out the width/height specs altogether. Also there is a blank post at the very top of recent posts that makes no sense because it is also displaying our most recent post just fine.

    The widget is on the right side near the bottom.

    Hi there,
    I didn't understand why this topic is tagged as "resolved" since it's not!
    I'm having the same issue. Some posts doesn't show images just the Title, number of comments and likes.

    Here's a live example:

    Any suggestions on how can I fix this?

    Hi Manoel,

    I just discovered that this has something to do when you're using "normal" as the image size, in your case things will work fine when you choose to use "thumbnails". I'm working on a fix for this but I suggest you use thumbnails until then. Sorry.

    Ps. Make sure to renew your cache after changing the image source size setting.

    Thanks.

    Danny

    Hey!

    Thanks for the reply Danny! And also congratulations for this plugin.. I know how hard can be to please everyone.

    It worked fine with the thumbnail, but for my design it would be better if I use the "normal" size of images.

    Please, as soon as you have a fix for the "Normal" issue, post it here or at the plugin updates.

    THanks,

    Manoel

    Hey Manoel,

    Got into it right away - version 1.3 should fix the issue!

    Let me know if that worked for you, hope so!

    @Angela, the page you're copying from is the "Recent FB Posts" settings screen. Check the checkbox that says "Load some default CSS".

    @kcdzsara, checking the checkbox hides the "comments" and "likes" text and shows the Facebook like and comment icons instead. So that should fix your 'issue' too.

    Good luck both! Sorry for my late reply.

    Hey Danny,
    I´ve updated the plugin and now all imagens appears and at the right size!!
    I have made some customization to the original file putting some style "float: left" so all posts are shown beside each other.

    This is GREAT!!

    Thanks a lot! I´ll surely recommend this plugin to the web....

    Thanks again,

    Manoel

    Hello, Danny!

    The like and comment icons show up now, and the feed updates normally now, which is awesome! Thanks so much!

    Unfortunately, I still can't get the images to load whether I choose to display them as thumbnails or normal size. Please help!!

    Hi kcdzsara and Soleas,

    I've pinpointed the problem of the bug, it only happens to users who use my plugin to show status updates from a personal profile instead of a public page. Images from public pages display just fine.

    I am currently looking into possible fixes but just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    Hi,

    Achim, for you this is because you are using a personal profile. I'm no longer actively developing and offering support for personal profiles as they proved to be too inconsistent. Sorry.

    Lucop1, do you have an example so I can take a look? What do you get, a question mark image or no images at all? Make sure to select an image size in the settings screen.

    Thanks.

    Danny

    I'm also having having issues with NO images. I'm using the shortcode implementation on my site in a Page as well as the main blog roll. My FB page is public would love to get this all working looks to be a GREAT addition and something I've been wanting to add to my site for some time now.

    Hi Danny,
    I'm having a similar issue with images not displaying. The link display, as do the buttons. The Facebook page is a public page created from a personal profile. Would that cause this issue? If so, what is the proper way to create the account on Facebook?

    Thanks for any advice you can offer.

    I'm in the same situation as tomdamon. but I'm getting double displays of my posts and how do I make only one post show? I'd show two if they weren't double posting.

    it's the upper left block or in the bright green block.

    hi danny, when I post on my own facebook page pictures and text. it shows only a question mark. when I set the settings to normal or thumbnail, the question mark appears in small or large. an image appears only in foreign facebook content which I share. my comments in facebook are on public! My pictures are in rgb and jpeg pix and 300 x 200 . I have no idea? Example is here http://www.digitalcommunication.de/

    thanks if you have an idear for me

    Hi Achim,

    It is because you are using a personal profile instead of a public page. I dropped support for personal profiles because of many issues (out of my reach) like privacy settings, etc. Not worth my time for now.

    Sorry.

    @Tom, the way you create your public page does not matter. Do you have a live example I can take a look at?

    @italianbull, I guess you removed the example because of my late response. If you still want me to take a look, just let me know! :-)

    @demoman2k10: I don't see any images on your Facebook page, just shared links. Facebook doesn't provide the image of the link through their API, unfortunately.
