    We have a news portal and we want to show the social share count per post. The facebook’s app call limit is 200 but it reaches the limit in less than 1 minute. How can we make a call with more urls or solve this problema any other way?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    We have the Cresta PRO and WordPress.

    Hi @clubedemidia
    what value did you set to the cache period in the plugin options page?
    By default it is set to 24 hours, so 1 call to the Facebook APP every 24 hours for each page.

    Tks for your answer. The problem is that I have the social counter in each page, but we have too many access. The call limit blows up in a few minutes. We have too many posts and the plugin is in every post.

    How can we make 1 call with all the pages? I don’t know how to solve it because the plugin is in more than 50.000 posts.

    Answering your question, we’ve set 48 hours in cresta cache. Now i’m increasing it to 72, but we need a solution to make one call with all of posts.

    Hi @clubedemidia
    a call to the Facebook APP only accepts one URL (id) at a time, it is not possible to make a single call with multiple urls.
    Unfortunately, in this case not much can be done, because the number of calls to the Facebook APP acts as a bottleneck.

    I advise you to go to the plugin option page and activate the “Store Facebook Shares in a post meta” option.
    This will save the Facebook shares in a meta post within your website. In this way, even if the Facebook APP throttles, the plugin will show the last share count it managed to get (in the pages where it managed to get it) instead of showing 0.
    In this way, over time, you should be able to have the share count on all pages.

    Currently, I can’t think of other ways, especially due to the high number of pages on your website 🙂
