doesn't work - unstable & locked me out of my site
By , for WP 3.5.1

took ages to set up as a non-developer - getting tokens from Facebook etc. Then it simply didn't work - autopublish of posts didn't work. Manual publishing of posts sometimes worked. Then finally it locked me out of my site for a few hours - only giving me the option to register as a new user via my Facebook profile, it wouldn't give me the wordpress login page. Eventually this seemed to clear of it's own accord, but I've now disabled it and am not going to attempt to use it again. Not recommended.

Does not work, breaks intermittently, complete garbage
By , for WP 3.5.1

Complete garbage!!! This plugin belongs in the trash!!! Intermittent failures!!! No support!!!! No current valid documentation!!! Unsupported complete junk!!!

Does not work!!!!!!

I have spent days trying to figure out why it intermittently drops fanpage access tokens and user access tokens. A complete nightmare!!!!

Basically if you want to use this on facebook you have to jump through all these hoops and get these stupid access tokens. It works for about 5 minutes then all the tokens break. So basically every time you want to publish to facebook to have to spend 30 minutes reconfiguring the facebook app it makes you create to use this, and deleting re-installing the plugin, and resetting all your access key, and then re-configuring the plugin setting, and re-granting the permissions through faceboook. A complete nightmare!!!!!

This is supposed to make it easy to post from my blog to my facebook page, but I actually spend about 30 minutes every time just configuring this horrible plugin!!!! If you are just using this for publishing, save yourselves the headaches and do it manually!!!!

I am a developer with 10+ years experience and this thing is the biggest piece of junk I have ever seen in my life!!!!

Simple?!
By , for WP 3.5

Er no.

If you are a blogger and not a programmer then no - it ain't simple.

You are required to set up a 'Facebook App' which is some sort of programmer related entity. The help page is useless as it does not refer to or correlate with the boxes you're required to fill in in the facebook app page. For instance enter your url in the box - what box? The one saying App name that must be within 3 and 30 characters or the other two boxes, neither of which mention url?

Don't bother.

Not flexible enough
By , for WP 3.4.2

There is no easy (by easy, I mean, without hacks) way to add log-in button to the front page or any other page for that matter. This is sort of pretty important, since you can`t ask for people to register on wp-login.php, right?
