    I've installed, activated and set up the widget, I put in the name of my facebook feed as "theballroomseattle" for the facebook page http://www.facebook.com/theballroomseattle but I'm getting the message "RSS Feed currently unavailable."

    Hi,

    Same problem with me. Works fine if using a numeric FB pageID as I've tested with older pages but returning the "RSS Feed currently unavailable" for named pages.

    Hope you can help.

    Thanks

    Tony

    SOLVED IT!!

    It is because of the named pages but it is easy to get around.

    Go to your page and click 'edit page' and hover over one of the options. At the bottom of your browser take a note of the ?id=number shown in the target link. Enter this number in the widget and it works like a dream.

    Yay!

    No, the problem is not resolved. Tonykj, you are supposed to use the page id number to begin with as stated with the instructions:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/fbf-facebook-page-feed-widget/installation/

    The plugin was working for me, but stopped working this past week. I am using the ID number and still get the "RSS Feed currently unavailable" message. Did Facebook make a change in the RSS feed?

    Hi,

    I forgot to add that you also need to amend the file fbf_facebook_feed.php on line 50 and remove the variable .$feed_link_id. and replace with the page id so the complete line would look like this......

    $feed_link_array .= ',http://www.facebook.com/feeds/page.php?=Your Page ID&format=rss20';

    I did that and it is still not working for me. The feed itself is active. I even tried directly assigning the RSS URL to the $feed variable and still do not have any content displaying correctly. I looked at the error log and found the following:

    PHP Fatal error: Call to a member function init() on a non-object in ...fbf_facebook_page_feed.php on line 59

    Line 59 has: if (!is_wp_error($feed)) : $feed->init();

    I ended up hard coding the path to feed.php and that resolved the fatal errors, but I still get the message "RSS Feed currently unavailable." Is there an issue with fetch_feed?

    Googling this seems to indicate it may be a widespread problem - ANY help that can be offered would be appreciated.

    My page is https://www.facebook.com/AidanHeritage and the page ID is 263911305997

    When I typed "fbf facebook feed rss feed not available" into Google yesterday I found a LOT of sites using the plugin that display this text

    Hello,
    I'm also having the same issue at http://uwsn.org

    The test site I'm using is http://aidanh.getfreehosting.co.uk/ and I've got the ID as specified, BUT I'm still seeing the issue? Screen shot of my widget setup http://snag.gy/of4pH.jpg - and as mentioned, google seems to bring a LOT of sites showing this issue?

    extra information - it works FINE on a local copy, but server side it doesn't - so it's not the version of WP that is the problem. I've done the suggested action above of hard coding the FB ID but it still doesn't work - MIGHT this be a version of PHP issue?

    Hi AidanH,

    This may be a server issue or because of PHP settings.

    Install the widget in other server.

    Thanks

    As I say, it seems to be affecting a LOT of sites - my server is on PHP 5.3.14 - I've tried it with two different (admittedly FREE) hosting sites with same result. As a VBA developer I know what a pain it is to try to debug when it works fine for you - but at the moment it doesn't work for me. ANY help you can offer is appreciated, and any info you need from me will be given! You can see the settings of my PHP at http://aidanh.getfreehosting.co.uk/info.php

    Hi AidanH,

    I've also registered a domain from getfreehosting.co.uk for checking the error.

    The plugin uses simplepie rss reader which is a in-built/default reader for wordpress.

    I have created a demo page (with wordpress fuctions + simplepie) which reads any rss feed.

    The problem comes only for facebook feed. Other sites feed are read without any issues.

    The error we get is WP HTTP Error: Couldn't resolve host 'www.facebook.com'

    Please visit this demo .page

    This hosting doesn't allow reading the feeds from facebook.

    Hope this issue wont be there in your live site.

    Thanks
    Lakshmanan.

    I was having this issue as well but I believe that I have fixed it. I tracked the problem down to the transient feed cache. It seems that when the plugin sets the cache timeout to 0 on line 26, it causes a problem with the transients never being garbage collected. I changed this line:

    add_filter( 'wp_feed_cache_transient_lifetime', create_function( '$a', 'return 0;' )); // To reduce cache time

    and set it to 60 seconds:

    add_filter( 'wp_feed_cache_transient_lifetime', create_function( '$a', 'return 60;' )); // To reduce cache time

    Then I went into the wp_options table in my wordpress database and deleted all the old transient feeds:

    DELETE FROM wordpress.wp_options WHERE option_name LIKE '_transient%_feed%';

    Now when I refresh the page, it seems to be working now.

    Hi webmystery,

    I need the following details.

    • The version of plugin which you are using
    • Your FaceBook page id

    FYI : I have updated the plugin. Please try using the latest version ( 1.2.1). In this version the detailed error message will be printed instead of RSS Feed Currently Unavailable

    Thanks,
