very good plugin

works very well, haven't found anything that matches. Does take a little time to get working well.

Does have a slight problem saving as the screen goes white after save.

The plugin does what it says and works very well.

I had previously written a very negative review, but I have changed it now. The reasons for it can be seen below.

Original review
_________

After its last update, this plugin stopped working.

The comments area disappeared. It kept showing a pink background message "Param numposts must be a number less than or equal to 100"

So, I went to its settings and in the "Comments plugin" tab set the number of post to 100 (it was in 1000, before). It did not solve the issue: The message disappeared, but the comments area was not back.

I set, then the number of posts in less than 100. Same issue.

Since on our site there are more than 100 posts, I am starting to suspect this not paid version of the plugin has a limit of post to be used. After it, it just disappears from the site. IF THIS IS SO, it is stated NOWHERE.

I tried to go to the support forum, but there is no help there unless you pay. Since I don't know whether the problem will be fixed (you can read other reviews of people who paid and didn't get a straight answer), I don't feel like paying.

So, basically, do not add this plugin to your site unless you don't mind paying for support you don't know it's going to work.

My last post after the answer of the author and some updates of the plugin
__________

Since the original issue described in my original review is not happening any more, I am changing my review to a more positive one.

Besides, Marcel Bokhorst took the time to answer to this review, and the apparent "pay if you need help" was clarified.

The plugin has had some updates since I reviewed it, and now it works just perfect on the site (http://www.curicoalbirrojo.cl).

I recommend its use, and I am considering upgrading.

Best of a bad bunch!
By , for WP 3.5.1

Out of all the WordPress -> Facebook plugins that are out there, I must say that this one is probably the easiest to setup and use. But don't let that fool you, from the WordPress side of things, it is easy...from the Facebook side...like all Facebook things...it's a bit of a nightmare.
But if you follow the setup instructions step by step by step by step you should get it working with out any hassles.
I would have given this plugin 5 stars, but as a developer, we all know that nothing on the web is ever 100%. But like I said I think this is the best so far.

On the Facebook side:
Just a word of warning for those trying to set up as a Developer on Facebook so you can create the App. This mainly applies to Developers in Australia though as that is where I am located. When signing up as a developer in Facebook, you are required to verify your account via sms. However, the only service providers that support text messaging from Facebook in Australia is Telstra and Optus (and also Virgin as they use Optus). So if you are with any other service provider you will not be able to receive a verification code. I found this out the hard way...so best thing to do would be to find a friend or relative who has Telstra or Optus as a service provider and use their number. Then get them to forward you the verification code.

Great, one little thing
By , for WP 3.5.1

Hi, works properly and thus saves lots of time : great.
A minor setback is that when I post something directly on facebook, people who have liked the facebook page will get it on their walls.

When something comes trough via my wordpress site and the plugin, this doesn't happen. I don't whether this is facebook's fault of that it's something that could be improved in the plugin.

Good App
By , for WP 3.5

I am not into code, but this app helped me get my page linked to facebook. The only difficulty that I had was understanding where to place my url. Thanks for your good work.

Great Plug-In
By , for WP 3.5

After running into a few installation problems, I was able to successfully get the plug-in to work and am very pleased with it. I'm very happy that the developer keeps it up-to-date with both WordPress and Facebook changes! Very nice plug-in!
