Facebook Events Widget
[resolved] Widget title showing, nothing else (9 posts)

    Hey, thanks for the widget. For some reason though I can't seem to get it working for the life of me!

    I created the facebook app using the domain the site is hosted on as the site URL. I then copied the App ID and app secret from this app along with the Page ID of my page (221427934555600). For some reason though, I can't seem to get any data to display.

    I'm probably missing something pretty obvious but any help would be really appreciated!

    Thanks :)
    (I hope having that coming soon landing page on top of the site doesn't affect this)...

    Me too, I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Do I need to do anything other than create an app, get the app id and app secret and enter my page id to get it to work? Do I need to add other code somewhere?

    Ok, I was able to get it to work, but I would like to use the widget on another page too. Is this possible? I made a new app and now it says "Caught exception: Invalid OAuth access token signature." where the 2nd widget should be.

    Ok, a little more trouble shooting and I realized that you cannot use this app if you Facebook page has country/age restrictions. So I took those off and the same app will work for multiple widgets now, which is awesome.

    App works pretty great now, except the calendar settings are off. It says last weeks events are this week, this weeks events are this month, etc. Also if I chose "Show only Future events" it doesn't show an event that started yesterday, even if it lasts until next week.

    Just a little feedback, thanks for the widget!

    How did you get it to work eventually? I'm still stuck with mine :(

    Tried a bit of the troubleshooting you did @clou4394. I installed it on another website using that website's facebook app and the widget also showed nothing there. I then tried 'Get Access Token' on both sites and was able to get the corresponding tokens for each app. When I put these in, on one site (the 1st to get the token)showed the same thing, blank widget. The 2nd site though showed your "Caught exception:.." error and when I removed the 2 access tokens from both sites all went back to normal (blank).

    All this may be completely irrelevant, but it's satisfying to know that I'm at least getting some response (error message).

    Really need some help here @roidayan. I'm stumped! :(

    Please check php error log, you'll might have more information there that can help.
    About age/country restrictions that depends also on the app settings you use when you created app id and app secret.
    Try to check if there some kind of settings about it in the settings where you took the app id and app secret.

    Thanks. It actually started working when I added new events so no problems anymore.
