    Hi lesurel,
    you are correct, feeds from facebook are not working at this time. Facebook changed it’s feed url api to redirect to https from the original url. I have not yet found a way to force the facebook feed to not redirect.

    Syndicate Press does not support https or url redirection at this time although both of those features are on our future development list.

    Best regards,

    Thank you for following up. If you are able to get this working again, I would be very happy to receive another update. I found it a really nice feature and used it on multiple projects.

    In the meantime, I worked around the problem by inserting a widget into the content area of my page/post and then used the native WP rss widget. Not ideal, since it separates my FB feed from the rest of my feeds, but it will do for now.

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    Hi lesurel,
    a new version of Syndicate Press was just released today which includes support for SSL encrypted feeds and feed URL redirection. Facebook was doing both redirection and encryption of their feeds via SSL.

    Please try the new 1.0.32 version of Syndicate Press to access the feeds. Depending on the privacy settings of the facebook wall that you are syndicating, you may need to get permission and/or a key from the facebook user or ask them to enable rss/atom feed publication.

    In order to use the new SSL and redirect feature, you will need to change the Feed download mode on the ‘Cache’ tab to use the Curl based download.

    Best regards,
    SP Developer
