Private Facebook


Private Facebook is a simple plugin for allowing a certain list of persons by their Facebook account.

Users can ask for permissions to read the blog, then you’d have to approve them so they can read it.


  • Your blog, the protected way
  • The access list


  1. Upload the private-facebook folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Create a facebook app and link it in the settings of the plugin
  4. (optional) You can edit the look of the waiting pages


How can I edit the look of the pages?

Copy the two files not-authorized.php and waiting-approval.php from the ‘html’ plugin directory to the theme directory, rename them to pf-not-authorized.php and pf-waiting-approval.php. This will overwrite the default files.
