    Got the same problem here. What's the progress on the fix there, Matt?

    It seems like you copied the github code to a new folder in your plugins folder when you should have overwritten the old plugin files located in wp-content/plugins/facebook

    This plugin is starting to pissing me of.

    Firt of all - i can not use any other plugin that uses facebook code, even i can't copy and paste the html code with my FB fanpage - okay, I can live without that.
    But, what the hell is that, this plugin is still chainging my Social Publisher from my fanpage to Disabled? It's too much. And now, tell me what i've to do now? Give my Newsmans acces to all settings? It doesn't sound good for me.

    I know that, you'r trying to fix it, but please, hie littlebit.

    I have just installed FB plugin 1.0.2, the version that comes when installing from inside FB. I get the same problem of access token expiring when posting to a fan page, and FB plugin disables the fanpage feature. This seems intermittent and happens after only overnight (or perhaps hours). Having to re-enable it almost always, and then manually repost on my fan page defeats the purpose of the social plugin. Add my name to the request for a fix.

    I tried the 1.0.3 code listed in a posting above but the linking to account does not work. This was a new install to a website without this plugin (v1.0.2) previously installed. This is running WordPress v3.4.2.

    API Error Code: 191
    API Error Description: The specified URL is not owned by the application
    Error Message: Invalid redirect_uri: Given URL is not allowed by the Application configuration.

    Never mind my above post - I had added a new subdomain but forgot to put that into the allowed app webspace. So I do not get the API 191 problem now.

    Well Arturo, I don't think there will be a update. There are to many problems with this plugin. If you use the name FACEBOOK then you have to be the best. But this is a big -100. The time it went good it whas OKE but by the update after the 1.0.2 it starts to be a problem. They make some changes but it become more problems. I used this one to for a newspaper on Curacao. Readers 8027 (a day) now 23-50 (a day) I lost a lot of readers. But I changed the plugin to a good one ans NO single problem. Cost me $9,99 a month. One of the members tells me a had a failer in my FB-Apps, but with the new one it seems that every ting is OKE. Even my tumbnail is coming with the head. No more double headline. no more waiting on the plugin.

    Arturo; if the makers don't even give a answer then it is very BAD and SHAME FULL.

    I have been using the development version 1.03 from https://github.com/facebook/wordpress/zipball/master. It's been running OK for a month or so. The version number in the development version code is incorrect - it still says 1.02 although it is 1.03, so I just changed that myself.

    Any luck about getting this working?
    I am still having to use hootsuite which kind of defeats the whole purpose.

    Quite indicative that Facebook's Facebook app doesn't work and no one from Facebook appears to want to fix it...

    I wouldn't say that exactly.
    I am running it on http://blog.cutabovehost.com/ and I updated to the 1.03 version which is only on that github site so far.

    I can't say I have tested everything and it has not been a full 24 hours yet since I installed the updates. I can say however that so far it has not lost the details for my fan page and such yet.

    Hello

    I just installed this plugin on a client's site and have the same issue - was working fine when I installed it, then a couple of days later tried to add a post and got the error message

    Failed posting to [site] Timeline because the access token expired. To reactivate publishing, visit the Facebook settings page and re-enable the "Publish to fan page" setting. Full error: {"message":"Error validating access token: The session is invalid because the user logged out.","type":"OAuthException"}

    1) Really need this to work
    2) After re-enabling as above, how to re-post to FB timeline (don't see any option in the post)
    3) will other users (e.g. author) get this issue ?

    Thanks

    I actually switched from Simple Facebook Connect to this plugin because SFC has so many conflicts with other plugins - and I thought the official FB plugin must surely be sweet! Well, obviously not!

    If SFC works for you - go ahead and give it a whirl - it's a good plugin other than the fact it has so many JS / plugin conflicts (just read the SFC support posts!!)

    I don't think there are any Facebook - WordPress plugins that actually work properly. I for one would happily pay $50 for a plugin that actually worked ;-)

    I was going to install this plugin but apparently it's not worth the headache! Does anyone have any alternate suggestions. Does SFC work. I just need my users comments to publish to their timeline so their friends can interact with the comments.

    SFC does work but you may find a variety of new headaches with conflicts with other plugins being a big issue - you'll just have to try and see !

    I think even the FB developers of this plugin have given up,

    I have the same issue, I have to re-enable the fan-page option every day so far. But the really annoying thing is when you think you are okay and have spend hours writing, proofing and editing your post - it fails to be posted to the facebook fan-page but does go everywhere else it should ie the blog and my personal timeline etc.

    Then I re-enable the option but there is no way to resend the post to the facebook fan-page. You have to put a manual post in - very annoying.

    When we re-enable the option we should be able to resend the post the fan-page. Are there any developers still answering this thread?

    Just got this same error again today.

    As David says, even if you fix it - there is no option to re-post the article which is annoying.

    FEATURE REQUEST please include an "resend to FB" button.

    FEATURE REQUEST 2: please get this plugin stable - it's quite remarkable the number of issues! The devs must have this down as very low priority

    I have the same problem, and I also get an error message even when it DOES work.

    This plugin is very unreliable.
