  • Don’t have any issue with paid plugins but the free version simply displays some text and big ugly markers where photos should go . . . this is a waste of time! Why don’t you come up front and say “don’t bother downloading the free version, it will not be of any use to man nor beast” ????
    This is poor form guys, bordering on Clickbait.

    Hi @redlid,

    I apologize for any inconvenience. We try to make it clear right at the beginning of the plugin description that this free plugin allows you to display text and links from Facebook posts but the Pro version is required to display photos and videos (please see this screenshot). We try to make this obvious upfront to avoid wasting anyone’s time who requires those features.

    Due to the amount of time required to support and maintain a plugin based on the ever-changing Facebook platform we have to offer a Pro version and reserve some features for that, otherwise we unfortunately wouldn’t be able to dedicate the time and effort required to supporting and keeping this free plugin up to date.

    I apologize again for any inconvenience!
