jQuery Facebook Wall WP Light retrieves a Facebook account's data and builds a Facebook styled feed on a page or post.
jQueryFacebookWallWPLight use the Facebook's graph API to retrieve your Facebook account data. Facebook needs to know who is asking for and retrieving their data; consequently, they have an authentication system to manage these needs. One way to retrieve data in this authentication system is via a Facebook App. The App in turn can request an access token, and once an access token has been acquired it can make requests for data from the graph API. Long story short, jQueryFacebookWallWPLight needs three things to get your Facebook account data:
Your Facebook username appears after the http://www.facebook.com/ in your browser URL. Usually it looks something like this: http://www.facebook.com/yourUserName. In other words, if you are Rick James, your Facebook URL looks something like: http://www.facebook.com/RickJames. Sometimes you have to look at your timeline to get your account name in the URL.

Once you have your username yourUserName you add it to yourplugin settings on the jQueryFacebookWall settings page in the Facebook User field.
You should be able to retrieve an Access Token via the setting page, if you cant your can try running the jQueryFacebookWallWPLight php access token retrieval script by hand. To use it:
15 $app_id = '----------------'; 16 $app_secret = '----------------';
If your host doesn't support php, you don't have php's https wrappers enabled, or you just like doing things by hand, you can retrieve a Facebook access token by the following means:
jQueryFacebookWallWPLight plugin makes use of Facebookâ€™s open graph API, which has various levels of authentication requirements. Facebook pages have looser restrictions than user accounts; therefore, the plugin can retrieve more info (posts and album data) for pages than normal accounts. jQueryFacebookWallWPLight will work with normal accounts, but you will not be able to retrieve album data and you will have to edit the permissions of your posts and photos in your Facebook account. If you donâ€™t have a Facebook page, you should consider creating one. You can do so by logging into Facebook and going here: https://www.Facebook.com/pages/create/
Here are the caveats imposed by Facebook's authentication requirements:
Requires: 3.5.1 or higher
Compatible up to: 3.8.15
