JSL3 Facebook Wall Feed

Displays your Facebook wall as a widget or through shortcode on a post or page.

Configuration

  1. Create your Facebook App. NOTE: You cannot use a Facebook Page to create a Facebook App. You must use your personal Facebook profile. However, once you create your Facebook App, you can use its App ID and App Secret along with the Facebook ID of the Facebook Page you want to get the feed from on the settings page for the plugin.

  2. If this is your first time creating a Facebook App, you will need to register. Otherwise, skip to step 6.

  3. Toggle the button to Yes to agree to the Facebook Policies and then click Next.

  4. After you enter the confirmation code that Facebook sent to your phone, click Register.

  5. Click Done to complete the registration.

  6. When you Add a New App, select the Website option.

  7. Click Create New Facebook App ID.

  8. Select a category that best fits your WordPress site and then click Create App ID.

  9. Enter your Site URL and Mobile Site URL in the Tell us about your website section at the bottom of the page. Do not enter www. Then click Next.

  10. Click the Skip to Developer Dashboard link in the Next Steps section at the bottom of the page.

  11. Select the Settings menu option. Enter your App Domain and Contact Email. Then click Save Changes.

  12. Click the Show button to reveal your App Secret.

  13. Make note of your App ID and App Secret. You will need them in step 16.

  14. Select the Status & Review menu option. Change the toggle button to Yes to make you Facebook App available to the public.

  15. Click Confirm to complete the creation of your Facebook App.

  16. Go to JSL3 Facebook Wall Feed under Settings on your WordPress Administration menu. Enter the App ID and App Secret you recorded earlier. Also, enter your Facebook ID. If you do not know your Facebook ID, you can find it at http://findmyfacebookid.com.

  17. Click the Save Changes button at the bottom of the page. You will be redirected to Facebook. You may be prompted to login a couple of times.

  18. Click Okay to give your Facebook App permission to acess your public profile, News Feed, status updates and groups.

  19. Click Okay to give your Facebook App permission to manage your Pages.

  20. You will be returned to the JSL3 Facebook Wall Feed settings page with your Access Token and its expiration date.

  21. NOTE: Facebook has changed how the Facebook ID is used with new Facebook Apps. If, after adding your widget to your WordPress site, you see that the feed is blank, go back to the settings page for the plugin and check the box below your Facebook ID and then click the Save Changes button. This will tell the plugin to request the App Scoped User ID instead of your Facebook ID.

Widget Usage

  1. Go to Widgets under Appearance on your WordPress Administration menu. Drag the JSL3 Facebook Wall Feed widget to the sidebar of your choice.

  2. Give the widget a title (or leave it blank) and enter how many posts you want to get from your wall. You may also enter the Facebook ID of the Facebook page you want to display in the widget. If you leave the Facebook ID blank, the widget will use the Facebook ID entered on the settings page for the plugin. Click Save.

  3. Go check out your Facebook Wall Feed on your WordPress site.

Shortcode Usage

  1. Add the shortcode [jsl3_fwf] or [jsl3_fwf limit="1"] or even [jsl3_fwf limit="1" fb_id="1405307559"] to the Text view of a post or page. If you do not enter a Facebook ID, the plugin will use the Facebook ID entered on the settings page for the plugin. If your feed is blank, try setting the fb_id property to your App Scoped User ID. If you do not know your App Scoped User ID, set the app_scoped_user_id property to true like this: [jsl3_fwf limit="1" fb_id="1405307559" app_scoped_user_id="true"]

  2. View your Facebook Wall Feed on your WordPress post or page.
