Support » Plugin: Facebook Open Graph update » Access Token Required

  • I believe this plugin now requires an access token to work? This plugin stopped working on our site and we had someone take a look as to why and they said facebook requires and access token for this plugin to work.

    Would it be possible to get an update for this plugin or if someone could assist me in getting the access token added in to this plugin.

    Apparently Facebook has made a breaking change, but hasn’t indicated it in any changelogs when this did happen.

    I’ll have to extend the plugin with Facebook login/auth. I’ll get back to this in a couple of days.

    Scratch that. It was “announced” in v2.10 of the API as a “90-day braking change”.

    POST /{url} - This node now requires a valid access token.

    Anyhow, this needs addressing in the plugin with a Facebook login/auth system.

    Thanks for following up on this Toni, your plugin is a very much appreciated asset to more than one of the sites I work on!

    I’m looking forward to seeing you work through this problem and I’m sure the plugin will only be better for it once it’s solved!

    Hi Toni, any update to this?

    I’ve started the work on this, but it requires building a central Facebook authentication server etc.

    Since I’m doing this on my spare time after my WordPress day job, this will take a while.



    all you need to do is have a facebook application, with App ID and App Secret when put like this App ID|App Secret make you access token

    in the plugin Facebook Open Graph, Google+ and Twitter Card Tags they counter it by adding this simple function into function.php

    // Make Facebook debug url
    add_filter( 'fb_og_update_cache_url', 'my_fb_og_update_cache_url' );
    function my_fb_og_update_cache_url( $url ) {
    	$url .= '&access_token=App ID|App Secret';
    	return $url;

    and there you go you don’t need a central authentification server or else 🙂

    so maybe just add a place to put the app id and app secret and add something in the code that add the parameter to the url and voila my friend
