Updated April 25th, 2018
Due to some sudden changes that Facebook has made to their API in April, 2018, some features of our Custom Facebook Feed plugin are either temporarily affected or will no longer be available. We apologize for any frustration or inconvenience this has caused. Unfortunately, Facebook gave no warning that these changes would be coming into effect, and they affect all Facebook plugins.
How will these changes affect the Custom Facebook Feed plugin?
It is no longer possible to display content of any kind from a Facebook Group. It is still possible to display content from public Facebook Pages.
Personal Information of Users
It is no longer possible to display the names or avatars of users who post to your page or comment on your posts.
Due to sudden changes on April 11th, it is not currently possible to display events from Facebook. We are working on reinstating this function as soon as possible. Facebook’s solution to preventing abuse of events data was to shut down access to all developers and then review individual applications to have access reinstated. We are currently in the application review process and are hoping to have access reinstated soon. We apologize for any inconvenience this unforeseen issue may have caused. If you’d like to receive an update via email of when this issue has been resolved then please use the form on this page. For a temporary workaround to displaying events, please see this FAQ.
Using your own Access Token
On April 24th, 2018, Facebook made a change to their platform where any developer app which is still in “Development mode” will no longer be able to retrieve public data from their API. This means that if you are using your own Access Token in our plugin then it will no longer work unless you make your app “Live”. This is a simple and quick process and we have step-by-step directions here.
