404 on events page?

If you are getting a 404 page when you visit http://YOURSITE.com/facebook-events/ url
just go to your Settings → Permalinks page and visit the events page again. This is a bug with WordPress not updating it’s database permalink table.

Get Errors when importing?

If you get the following error: “There may not be any future events or the page is age restricted” you should check those first. If you have upcoming events and the page is not restricted check your app settings against the Example Facebook App Setup.jpg included with the plugin or here http://wpfbevents.com/images/facebook_app_config.jpg.


Do not purchase. No support, horrible docs

Do NOT purchase the ‘Pro’ version of this plugin. Unfortunately I did…and I’ve already asked for a refund via PayPal. After looking at their ‘support’ forum, they have not answered any support questions in months. The documentation is basically non-existent. There are supposed to be templates and sliders and all sorts of goodies with the ‘Pro’ version…but how do you use it?

No documentation and no support

The plugin works as advertised for the most part. The issue is that the developers simply do not support it. Additionally there is no documentation and there are several bugs. So if you want to play around with it, and hope that it works out for you, and none of the bugs come to bite you, then go for it. If you wind up needing support though, you’ll be out of luck.

Note – this is true even if you have the $25 pro version, so buyer beware.

Very nice plugin

I have used this plugin to get my facebook page events list in to my website. It’s works great. Good job.


Look for an alternative

Stay away from the pro version – it is problematic to install (I had to do it manually)
but now it just stopped working all together. No new events are being imported and it is throwing weird errors even though I have not changed anything.

Also has NO support at all. Contacting the developer directly has no response either.

I honestly wish I could have my 20 bux back.

Look for an alternative, perhaps with developer support

Dev has Abandonned Plugin, still taking money

BEWARE: Do not purchase this product. The dev has abandoned this plugin but is still selling a buggy non-working product. He has not responded to any support threads in a year and also does not answer his phone or return calls or emails.
I will be disputing the charges with my bank.
