    Hi,

    I was waiting for months for the automatic publishing to wall Fan page.
    However, there's something I don't find :
    Where can I find the extended permissions menu, as I don't have an application but just a fan page .... :(

    Publish Permission is needed to publish stories to the stream automatically.
    Fan Page Publish Permission is needed to publish stories to the Fan Page automatically.

    Thanks,

    If the plugin is working correctly, then the configuration page there will make a couple of buttons appear to allow you to grant the necessary permissions. Just click the buttons and agree and voila.

    If the buttons don't appear, then you have some kind of javascript problem on your site. Other plugins might be interfering. Check the Error Console in your browser, see if there's any obvious errors occurring.

    I've disabled all the plugins, and still running this issue :
    The error console give me this error :
    FB is not defined

    apparently for this function :
    "FB.ensureInit(function() {

    I do repeat that I don't have entered any API key, as I'm only running a Facebook Fan Page.

    THanks for your help & follow-up,

    I do confirm that this is not a javascript problem, as I tried with an application and it worked...

    Have I found a bug ;-) ? :-)

    There's your problem.

    A Facebook Application is not optional. Facebook Connect requires an Application.

    The API Key, Application Secret, and Application number *must* be filled in for anything to work, at all, period.

    The Fan Page ID is optional. The plugin can publish to your Fan Page once you put that ID number in there. But you have to have an Application to make the thing work in the first place.

    In other words, if you want to publish to a Fan Page, you need to have an Application and a Fan Page. It's not one or the other.

    Even if there's no link between the application & the fan page ?
    I mean it's not a fan application page, it's just a normal fan page.

    OK - Got it now.
    How many times a day the plugin will check for new posts to publish automatically ?

    Zero. It sends them to Facebook at the same time as when you publish the post. It doesn't poll or anything like that.
