    I want a bigger preview bigger picture. I have no clue how. I know that the pictures end with _s, if you change this to _n you get a bigger picture. But i don’t know how to do that in PHP. In jquery it’s just split and join. Can you help me?

    • Takanudo says:

      Try this:

      1. Open ‘/wp-content/plugins/jsl3-facebook-wall-feed/php/class-uki-facebook-wall-feed.php’
      2. Line 830 is the following:
      return $result;
      3. Change it to the following
      return str_replace('_s', '_n', $result);
      4. Save the file

    You are my hero! Thanks a lot.

  • Robin says:

    Oops, sorry one more question. Do you know how to embed a youtube video. Now it’s only generating a picture with a link.

    • Takanudo says:

      Embedding video would be difficult to implement with this version of the plugin. If I get enough requests for it, I may add it to a future version.

    I was trying to alter Fedil Grogan’s code until I saw you had already done it to achieve exactly what I want. I don’t want to use it in WordPress, though. Is it possible to use this as standalone HTML? Which PHP files would be essential for this, and could you provide a basic installation walkthrough. Much thanks!

    • Takanudo says:

      The plugin was designed to function within a WordPress environment, so most of it will not be of much use outside of WordPress. The PHP that generates the HTML is located in ‘/jsl3-facebook-wall-feed/php/class-uki-facebook-wall-feed.php’. However, even that class uses some built in WordPress functions.

    Hi, I am getting this error “OAuthException: An access token is required to request this resource.” even though my access token is valid when I check it at https://graph.facebook.com/debug_token?input_token… – I was previously getting the session expired error, now just the one above. Everything looks ok in settings. Any ideas?

    • Takanudo says:

      Are you using version 1.5.1 of the plugin? If so, what does it say is the expiration date of your access token?

  • bsod99 says:

    Ahh, upgrading to latest version fixed it, expiration now 9th March – thanks!

  • I am having a problem with the plugin. When activated and browsing with firefox the page can scroll on for ever. When I deactivate the plugin the page displays fine.

    Its only happening on Firefox any idea?

    • Takanudo says:

      Christopher, try adding the following to the bottom of the style sheet on the settings page for the plugin:

      #facebook_status_box #facebook_canvas .fb_post .fb_commLink .fb_likes .tooltip
      position: static !important;
      padding: 0 0 0 18px !important;
      opacity: 1 !important;
      filter: alpha(opacity=1) !important;

    Hey Takanudo! I have a small issue. It is saying “OAuthException: An access token is required to request this resource.” I’ve checked the ID app secret and the website domain. Everything matches up. I uninstalled it and reinstalled and it still does the same thing. The website is http://sadiegraceinc.com/store-news/ . If you can get back to me my email is **** Thank you for contacting me and taking your time to read this!

    • Takanudo says:

      On the settings page for the plugin, are you getting an access token?

      • Gage Berghoff says:

        No, I am not seeing an access token.

        • Takanudo says:

          Are you getting any error messages when you click “Save Changes” on the settings page for the plugin?

          • Gage Berghoff says:

            No im not seeing any error messages at all on the plugin page i retyped everything in and saved it and nothing changed.

          • Takanudo says:

            Try the following:

            1. Go to your Facebook page and go to your Account Settings.
            2. On the Account Settings page, click “Apps” on the left menu.
            3. On the Apps Settings page, remove the Facebook App you created for this plugin, if it is there.
            4. Log out of Facebook.
            5. Go to the WordPress settings page for the plugin, click “Save Changes”.
            6. You should be redirected to a Facebook login page. Go ahead and enter your Facebook login information.
            7. The next Facebook page should prompt you to use the Facebook App you created, click “Go to App”.
            8. Finally, the next Facebook page should prompt you to give permission to your Facebook App, click “Allow”.
            9. You should be redirect back to the WordPress settings page for the plugin. Hopefully, with an access token.

            Let me know if this works.

          • Gage Berghoff says:

            Okay thank you I will try this tomorrow, and get back to you.

          • Gage Berghoff says:

            Hey that worked perfect but now all I see on my website is Facebook news. I tried what you posted in the FaQ’s but that did not work any suggestions?

          • Takanudo says:

            What are you using for a Facebook ID?

          • Gage Berghoff says:

            I went to facebook logged in clicked my the owners profile then went to there photos and randomly clicked one

            in the url bar it said some thing like idset and following that was a set of numbers did I do that correctly?

          • Takanudo says:

            Can you give me a link to your Facebook page? I will get you the correct Facebook ID.

  • Jon Ellman says:

    You sir, are amazing! There are so many variations of this plugin but this one is the only one I know of that shows all the likes and comments. I have two questions though:

    1.) The comments don’t seem to show for every post, they only show on some?

    2.) I have the exact same request as another user, which is to make a standalone code that would work independently of WordPress. I tried myself by spending hours taking your code apart, alas I don’t know php and I’m realizing that some of this code is very WP-specific.

    I’m guessing for you to make a standalone version would take some work, but would you know in general terms how this might be done so that I may experiment?

    Again, thanks a lot for this plugin!

    • Takanudo says:

      1. This is a problem with Facebook. For some reason, they do not return all the comments in the feed.

      2. Unfortunately, the plugin is designed to work specifically with WordPress. The code that actually displays the feed is located in ‘/wp-content/plugins/jsl3-facebook-wall-feed/php/class-uki-facebook-wall-feed.php’. You would need to remove the WordPress only functions. Then you could just instantiate the object with the parameters you want to set passed into the constructor and then call ‘get_fb_wall_feed()’ function to print the feed.

      • Elmann says:

        Hahah being a complete noob It’ll take me some time to figure out what that means, but I’ll work on it, your help is much appreciated!

  • lance says:

    Dear Sir

    I really like your plugin, and am so grateful you have created it.

    I would like to have 3 different instances of the plugin running on my site, as i have 3 different facebook feeds.

    Right now on my site it only allows me to reference 1 facebook feed in the parameters, but i would like to create 3 separate versions of plugin where i can enter in the 3 different facebook feed links.

    Please may you let me know how this can be done?

    Your help in this matter will be greatly appreciated, and i would definetly donate to your development.

    thanks alot

    • Takanudo says:

      Unfortunately, the plugin is designed to work with only one feed. I would like to upgrade the plugin to work with multiple feeds in the future, when I can find the time.

  • Dicky says:
