[resolved] show event details? (4 posts)

    Hi. Love the plugin. It's great!

    One question I have is about new events. When I create a new event, the only thing the plugin posts is: "Ekklesia Church at Raleigh created a new event." It doesn't show any of the event details. Whereas on Facebook, it shows all of the details.

    Is there a way for the plugin to include the event details when a new event is created?

    thanks!

    I don't think Facebook sends the event details in the feed. You can view the raw feed yourself by going to http://developers.facebook.com/tools/explorer. Enter your Access Token and then in the box with "https://graph.facebook.com/" append "YOUR_FACEBOOK_ID/feed" so that it reads "https://graph.facebook.com/YOUR_FACEBOOK_ID/feed". Then click "Submit". If you can find the event details in the raw feed, let me know and I'll see what I can do about adding it. If Facebook doesn't send the event details in the raw feed then there isn't much I can do.

    Did anyone get this figured out? I checked out another plug in that does pull in the info, but I prefer this plugin for many other reasons. That plugin is Custom Facebook Feeds. I'd really like to use this plugin, and this seems to be the only thing lacking.

    It looks like a separate request to Facebook has to be made for each event to get the event details. If I get a lot of requests for this, I may add it in. However, it will slow the feed down depending on the number of events in the feed.
