My Facebook page feed doesn’t display anything. How can this be fixed?

The feed might not be working correctly because the page you are trying to display with Facebook Feed WD plugin has age or country restrictions.

Unfortunately, this cannot be controlled by Facebook Feed WD, since Facebook API does not provide data about pages with restrictions.

Therefore, please make sure to remove the restrictions, and try again.

Reviews

Doesn’t keep up with FB changes

Every time Facebook makes any change to their software, this feed stops updating itself until I remove it and reinstall. Just not on top of things to keep my site updating with my most recent FB posts. It’s a real PITA.

Works perfectly, great customer support!

Had this on a website for years.

Due to new FB privacy rules in July 2018, it stopped updating the posts. I wrote to them and we got it to work.

Here’s how to work through this issue, error issues.

1) Make sure you are logged on the FB account from which you created the page.
2) Go through the entire process again. It is long but very well documented.
3) Do re-create your feed.

It all worked for me.

Facebook feed which really works!

The process of including a FB feed onto a wordpress website requires some savvy! However this plugin makes the process possible, with clear instructions which must be thoroughly read… and if you have problems theres a great people to help! Thanks : )

works great (if configured correctly), highly customizable, good support

Configuration was a little tricky for me. It requires a page access token, app id, and app secret to be created via the Facebook Developer tools. But I contacted support and they helped me get everything entered correctly. Now it is working great.

This is the most customizable Facebook Feed plugin I have found (and I have tried a lot of them). Highly recommend it. Five stars.
