Add Facebook social plugins and the ability to publish new posts to a Facebook Timeline or Facebook Page. Official Facebook plugin.
Not quite simple to configure. After you install it, you have a lot of work to make it work.
There's no explicit instructions. A lot o features are not working or they are very glitchy.
My publish action was not even acceptep beacause they say that i have to many videos on my blog. WTF?!
Sometimes it's working, sometimes is not.
The shortcodes for like and send button are not working. When i put the code somewhere it shows like simple text.
This might be the best plugin in the world, but I'd never know, because I have no idea how to use it. The documentation is incredibly weak. Other sources of documentation I've found online have been woefully incomplete. For every problem I've had, I've seen umpteen unresolved support forum entries. The problems I'm having all stem from the facebook developers page, especially open graph, but after hours of getting nowhere, I'm just going to have to go back to using one of the unofficial plugins, that I can at least get to work.
It doesn't automatically post to my timeline (only to recent activity), at least when it does that. If I try to put in a message describing the post it won't even do that.
This plug-in is advertised as being easy to set-up, but there are no instructions for how to get the Facebook app you are apparently supposed to get. I tried to do what I had to, which apparently includes registering as a Facebook developer, but in order to do that, you apparently have to have a cell phone texting plan. Nowhere in the set-up instructions or FAQs is this mentioned. There is no discussion of what the work-around is if you don't have a cell phone texting plan (I don't have one).
I was shocked to see that this is the official Facebook plug-in for WordPress. Is this seriously that the best that Facebook can do for the most popular website platform out there?!?!?!?
I really would like the functionality but all the technical mumbo jumbo makes it feel like a DOS-setup in the early 1990:s. Just not worth the effort.
I've tried this app 3 times in the last 3 months since its release. On all three occasions the setup required far too much information by hand.
Interfacing WP with FB should be a simple submission/query via the Facebook API and the WordPress install, but this app goes much much further than that, worse still, if the user hasnt set up apps by hand in FB before, they are going to be VERY lost.
I recommend Wordbooker until they make this quite a bit more user friendly.
I was hoping to use this plug-in to allow me to automatically add new WordPress posts to a Facebook page.
Getting baffled by messages like:
"Secure Page Tab URL is required when Sandbox Mode is disabled"
"You have specified an App Domain but have not specified a valid integration URL."
"Associate an Open Graph action-object pair for your application:"
Totally lost. Any chance of some simple instructions or a walkthrough?
I recently installed this plugin on several sites.
It didn't do anything.
I'm a website developer and use Facebook Apps., not a newbie.
Needed far more testing before release.
The plugin breaks the pagination of home page of our site. Even newer versions didn't helped at all. Because of this problem we are using older version or 3rd party plugins.
WordPress Plugins should be easy...that's the whole purpose of wordpress. Is it Facebook making this a complicated process, or is it your developers.
