FBF Facebook page Feed Widget
'Unable to fetch the feed' error (2 posts)

    I've just installed and configured the plugin but instead of nice list of my latest post I'm getting only the error message:

    Unable to fetch the feed
    Error: This XML document is invalid, likely due to invalid characters. XML error: Invalid character at line 244, column 23
    RSS Feed currently unavailable.

    Since the plugin bases on RSS I tried to preview the "regular" RSS feed of my page (https://www.facebook.com/feeds/page.php?id=239993256101857&format=rss20) and it works, however the regional characters are not displayed correctly :(
    Can this be the reason the plugin fails to work? Is there any way to overcome it?

    The feed XML has invalid characters

    Please have a look at W3Validator

    The plugin works fine for other facebook pages.

    The plugin uses simplepie, in-built RSS reader for wordpress. Simplepie cannot read this XML while other readers (Your browser[chrome,firefox]) may be able to read it.
