    Hey,

    Love this plugin. Makes posting to my Facebook a lot easier and more "obvious" that it's come from my blog. Hopefully I can now create a proper App ala SocialCam so I can get more "sharing" happening via Facebook. That'd be nice.

    However for the time being I was wondering if you had on your roadmap multiple users? My blog currently has 4 different users, and I also help run another blog with 100s of users. However the plugin currently only allows 1 person's access token to be associated, and it doesn't seem to have the "offline_access" scope associated to it - so if I log out or use a different browser things don't seem to post properly.

    Hope you are thinking about this,

    Colin

    This is the problem I am noticing. "offline_access" is deprecated now, so it relies on long-lived access tokens, but the tokens are not sticking past my WordPress session. I have no idea why.

    I have to keep logging into Facebook and WordPress in order for posting to continue.

    Well that's a bit crap them deprecating the single most useful bit of permissions in the whole site. My main app has code that posts automatically for the user hourly. What am expected to do is now change my code to make sure I remember to check within a 60 day period , to request a new token? So they've changed it from a once in a lifetime call to a check often call? Wonder what smarty pants thought that one up!!

    What's really upsetting me is that the $status_messages are not getting saved to the posts that don't post, so I don't really know what's going on.

    I put the following on line 291 of fb-social-publisher.php so I can hopefully get to the bottom of this.

    if (!empty($status_messages)) {
    		wp_mail("myEmail@gmail", "Facebook Status Messages", print_r($status_messages));
    	}
