JSL3 Facebook Wall Feed

    Hey. Great plugin! Easy setup. Easy to customize. I am having an issue filtering posts though. Everything works perfectly until I check "Only show posts made by this Facebook ID.", at which point the feed goes blank. I have "Perform thorough wall grab. " checked. I'm showing "all wall posts". And there are posts in the facebook account. What could be happening here? Thanks.

    What Facebook ID are you using?

    Hey,

    Thanks for the quick response.

    I'm using the Facebook ID grabbed out of the URL:

    http://www.facebook.com/XXXXXXXX

    I've also tried grabbing the id out of an image url as suggested in the FAQ:

    http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.123456789012.123456.XXXXXXXXX&type=3

    with the same result...

    Facebook does not use the Facebook ID grabbed out of the URL in its feed. It uses the numerical version of your ID. This is why you are getting an empty feed when you check "Only show posts made by this Facebook ID." If you give me the Facebook ID you grabbed out of the URL, I can give you the correct numerical Facebook ID.

    If you are not comfortable giving me your Facebook ID, you can get the correct numerical version by doing the following:

    1. Go to http://developers.facebook.com/tools/explorer.
    2. Enter your access token.
    3. In the field with “https://graph.facebook.com/” in it, enter “FACEBOOK_ID_FROM_URL/feed” after it so that it reads “https://graph.facebook.com/FACEBOOK_ID_FROM_URL/feed”
    4. Click submit.
    5. In the results, the first data entry is “id”. It has your Facebook ID followed by an underscore followed by another number.
    6. Enter your numerical Facebook ID on the settings page for the plugin and click "Save Changes."
