Installation FAQ | The Custom Facebook WordPress plugin

How do I find my Page or Group ID?

If you have a Facebook page with a URL like this: https://www.facebook.com/smashballoon then the Page ID is just smashballoon. If your page URL is structured like this: https://www.facebook.com/pages/smashballoon/123654123654123 then the Page ID is actually the number at the end, so in this case 123654123654123.

If you have a Facebook group then use this tool to find your Group ID.

If you have trouble figuring out your ID from your URL then you can find it in your Facebook page settings under the Page Info tab, as shown below.

Facebook Page ID

Copy and paste the ID into the demo to try it out. If you have any trouble figuring out your Page ID then just shoot us a message and we’ll help you out.

How do I customize my feed?

The plugin comes with a ton of built-in options to allow you to customize your feed in a bunch of different ways.

 

WordPress plugin

You can customize the feed by setting the options on the ‘Customize‘ page, which can be found under the ‘Facebook Feed’ menu in your left hand WordPress admin menu. If you need even deeper customization than the built in options allow then you can add your own CSS to the plugin in the ‘Custom CSS’ section under the ‘Misc’ tab.

You can also override these styles for individual feeds by setting options within the shortcode. For example, you can change the height of a specific feed like so:
