I have screenshots for anyone interested. I installed this plugin with intention of using the Social Publisher so I could automatically post new blog posts to the Facebook Page.
First problem I ran into was Step 3. Authenticate with Facebook to allow your Facebook application to post to your Timeline or Page on your behalf when a post is published. Followed by a red x.
No instructions on how to do this. Nothing to click on to authenticate etc.etc. Went through all the settings again on the Facebook app and made sure all areas were filled in correctly as far as namespace, url, and mobile url.
App ID and App secret were filled out on the WP plugin side.
Second problem I ran into (most likely related to the first) was when clicking on the link Add a Facebook account to your WordPress account after Publish to a Page it redirected me to the profile page. At the bottom of the profile page there was a section for Facebook Account. Under that it said Get started. But there was nothing else to click on or fill in, and Get started didn’t link anywhere. Just two text words – Get started… Ummmmm okay… would love to! So…..?!?!!? What now?!
Below that the button to Update Profile.
Very unpolished plugin. I expected a lot more from a huge company like Facebook who no doubt has teams of developers. Highly disappointing plugin. Don’t recommend.
