How do I find my Facebook ID?

How does Caching Work?

Caching keeps a local copy of your posts at the interval specified so you don’t have to constantly contact Facebook. This saves on site load speed because you don’t have to make an external connection.

I am updating my widget settings, but nothing is changing, why?

Try disabling the cache, saving, refreshing the page where you widget displays, then turning cache back on. Cache saves data into wordpress, so updating settings won’t reflect until the next cache update.
