[resolved] Posts do not appear in Page highlights (3 posts)

    Hi
    I have successfully managed to set-up the Facebook plugin to post my WordPress posts to my Page's timeline. However they are effectively 'hidden' from any of the Page's fans because they do not show up on the Page's default 'Highlights' timeline (you can only see them if you explicitly choose 'Posts by Page'). As a result, my recent posts have only been see by one person - me!

    Have I set something up wrong, or is this just Facebook trying to force me to use paid 'Promotion/Boost' (which I do often use, I hasten to add)

    Any thoughts as to why automatic posts from the Facebook plugin would be so hidden from the timeline of my Page's fans?
    Thanks

    Update: it is even more bizarre than this. Only I can see the post on Facebook. Nobody else can see it at all.

    How is this possible? There aren't privacy settings on a Page's posts, are there?

    OK, resolved.
    I had "Sandbox" mode switched on in the Facebook application settings, so only I could see it.
    I found the solution by browsing the forums of other Facebook plugins.
