    Hi. Great Plugin - very easy to style and looks great.

    Only problem is that it does not seem to be updating the feed. I have changed the functions file to read 1800 seconds to see if it is working (half an hour) but it has not yet updated.

    Any assistance would be great!

    I have a client waiting so sooner rather than later would be awesome.

    Many thanks.

    I ran into the same issue. I'm currently waiting to see if the status will update... I changed the cache to the same amount of seconds (1800) Nicole did.

    I just changed it to the following...


    Is this okay to do?

    1)Edit the plugin file
    2) add this code in line number 24.
    add_filter( 'wp_feed_cache_transient_lifetime', create_function( '$a', 'return 0;' )); // set cache time to zero
    3)Go to line number 62. you will find this code.
    $feed->set_cache_duration(21600); // six hours in seconds
    4)Replace this with the following code
    $feed->enable_cache(false); // no cache;
    5)Save the file.
    6)Take a backup of the old file and overwrite the modified file in your website(wp-content/plugins/fbf-facebook-page-feed-widget/).

    We have removed the caching now.

    Try these changes. Let me know if there is any issues.

    Will you be updating the plugin to "fix" this issue?

    Hi all,

    Glad to inform you that new version 1.2.1 released!!!

    The latest version of this plugin comprises of the following features/bug fixes:

    • wordpress HTTP header error message will be shown in case of any errors.
    • Feed are not cached now. So feeds will update on page refresh.
    • Update time is corrected.
    • Added option to show/hide facebook like button inside the feed.
    • ul li issued fixed. the plugin outputs standard html now
    • css changes - container bg color and width removed. (If you use shortcode inside a post/page, the feed will occupy whole content content area)

    Try the latest version

    Please let me know any issues
