[Resolved] [Plugin: Facebook Events Widget] "Caught exception: couldn't connect to host"

  • I’ve tried this widget, and every now and then it works beautifully. But for some reason, most of the time the widget never shows up on the page, instead showing “Caught exception: couldn’t connect to host.” I’ve tried this with multiple Facebook pages, so it doesn’t appear to be a problem with any one specific page.

    Any idea what the problem might be? The most puzzling thing about it to me is that it sometimes DOES work, showing the events just fine. So I know I’ve set up the widget correctly, it’s just that most of the time it doesn’t manage to connect.

    this could be a problem with your hosting provider
    the plugin connects to facebook to get the events with curl
    most of the time this could be a timeout problem
    can you check your php error log to identify the problem?
