Facebook-App as admin - does not work (12 posts)

    WordPress version: 3.5
    WordPress SEO version:

    I did this: In tab "social" I clicked on "Eine Facebook-App als Admin nutzen", in English it will be something like "Use Facebook-App as admin" or so. Well, after clicking on it simply nothing happens then reloading the settings-page. I do have an facebook app with all its IDs and stuff, but I cannot type them in anywhere. When clicking on "add facebook-admin" it works... but I do not want to use my private facebook profile. I want to use my pages-profile/facebook-app.

    I expected the plugin to do this: To give me fields for my facebook-app ID and Secret-Key and so on.

    Instead it did this: Nothing.

    Please help :-)

    Same issue here. I click on "Use Facebook App as Admin" and... nothing happens.

    It would be helpful just to know what's SUPPOSED to happen. The instructions on the Social tab aren't at all clear about that, which makes troubleshooting pretty difficult.

    I'm also experiencing the problem of Facebook being unable to display any og:images. My featured images and post images are all large enough and always listed when I run the debugger... but they simply won't display. I have a default image url set on the Social tab, but that image doesn't even show up in the debugger list.

    Given how common both of these issues seem to be, the near complete lack of documentation is frustrating and a little disappointing.

    Same problem here. The "Use Facebook App as Admin" button not working. Some how "http://" added in front of the "key" parameter of the button url.

    When I remove it and manually go to the url, it redirects me to my admin page and now I can see App selection dropdown. But none of my apps shown. Only first option "Do not use a Facebook App as Admin" is selectable.

    Every time there's an update to the plugin I try again to see if it's been fixed :(

    The rest of the plugin is awesome, not sure why this piece is not getting any attention. So, I decided to write a really quick tool that should help...


    Let me know if the link above is confusing at all.

    it worked on my site before. i think it wont work if you have other social plug ins that already identifies your app or the page admin.
