Where can I find my facebook id?

Your facebook id can be found in the url of your facebook page, for example: https://www.facebook.com/bbcnews, is this example 'bbcnews' is the facebook id.

Why does the shortcode generate no content?

  • Check if your Facebook ID is correctly typed.
  • Make sure your Facebook page has no age restrictions.
  • Make sure your server supports php-curl.
  • Make sure allow_url_fopen is enabled in your php.ini.

Can I use custom shortcodes?

There are 2 optional shortcode parameters, id and limit. Id overwrites your default facebook id. Limit overwrites your default post limit. This way you can use different shortcodes for different pages and situations. Example: [easy_facebook_feed id=bbcnews limit=5].

Can I use multiple feeds on a single page?

You can add multiple Facebook feeds to the shortcode id separated by comma. For example: [easy_facebook_feed id=bbcnews,natgeo].

Can I use Easy Facebook Feed in my templates?

Yes you can, simple add <?php echo do_shortcode('[easy_facebook_feed]'); ?> to your template.

Is Easy Facebook Feed using caching?

Yes, to offer optimal website performance Easy Facebook Feed will cache your feed data for 30 minutes.

Why do some images not display?

This is an issue with Jetpack Photon, Photon is breaking some of the image urls. Its recommended to disable Photon.
