Support » Plugin: Recent Facebook Posts » Facebook instructions a bit confusing

  • chcl4leung



    This looks like a good plugin! Unfortunately, I tried to follow the instructions you provided for connecting and obtaining the app key id through facebook and it seems like either the instructions or menu has changed under facebook and I couldn’t get through the steps. Do you have any additional information that would help me obtain the key so I may use the plugin? Your help is greatly appreciated in advance!

    Hi chcl4leung,

    I’m currently looking into making the instruction more easy to understand but I’ll have to admit it is a bit hard for me as a developer.

    Where exactly do you get stuck? Here is a very short explanation of the steps involved in the process..

    1. Create a new app here:
    2. Set your Site URL to the URL of your WordPress installation
    3. Copy your API Key and API Secret and
    4. Go to the Recent Facebook Posts options screen in your WordPress admin panel
    5. Paste the API Key and API Secret in the designated fields.
    6. Go to and find the numeric ID of your Facebook page
    7. Go back to the Recent Facebook options screen and fill in your numeric Facebook ID in the designated field.
    8. Save and test your configuration by hitting the “renew access token” and “renew cache” buttons.


    Hi Danny van Kooten:

    Wow, that is a fast reply! Sorry, I haven’t checked your reply until now because it has been a busy week.
    At first, I did get stuck on the first step to set Site URL to URL of WordPress Installation. I will have to try your shortened steps and let you know what happens. Thanks again!

    Best regards,



    Hello Danny van Kooten:

    Well, I just logged into my Facebook account in order to continue with the first step of “Create a new app here:” but all it takes me to is a screen upon logging in after I click your link is the screen that shows Facebook Developers >> Apps. It doesn’t take me to a screen listed in your second step as “Set your Site URL to the URL of your WordPress installation.” Could you please help me with some tips on how to set the site URL?

    Thank you for your help in advance!
