    When trying to configure Facebook options, the options page is empty.

    This text displays, then nothing after that:

    Facebook Feed Options
    Change the language, color and more for your facebook feed using the options below.

    I’ve tried restarting apache with no success.

    Please go to your wp-config file on the root of your wordpress install and turn on wp_debug mode. To do this change the false to true. Then look at the page in question again and reply with any errors that appear. This should lead us to the problem.

    Here is the text of an uncaught error exception that was logged. How can I fix this?
    (It worked beautifully on my DEV box!)

    Thanks for the info, I suspected it had to do something with that. Double check with your host why your dev environment is different than the live environment. I’m guessing it has something to do with the xml_json_parse. Make sure that is available in your live environment too.

    Thread Starter dadkind


    Different providers.
    Dev is on aws
    Prod is hosted on

    Any other suggestions?

    Plugin Author slickremix


    I would contact and tell them the dilemma and the error message that is coming up and that it worked on your dev environment. Sounds like they need to install a module to allow the XML json call to function properly. I wish I could offer more insight.

    Thank you so much for your help !!!

    Solved my problem.

    I needed to install package php-xml
    “sudo apt-get php-xml”

    I installed the package and now everything is working.

    The key is the line in the error that I posted previously:
    “Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function feedthemsocial\simplexml_load_string()”

    A little Googling led me to realize that I was missing a package on my server.

    Hopefully this will help you develop a better installation process so that you check to make sure that the package is installed.
