Before You Begin: Make Your Facebook Page Public

In order to display your Facebook posts on your website, you’ll need to be sure that your Facebook page is Public. If its not, you won’t be able to see any Facebook posts on your website, and this plugin will not work.

The best way to check if your Facebook page is public is to first log out of Facebook, and then visit your Facebook Page. If you can still see all the posts, your page is public.

This is an example of what you’ll see when logged out of Facebook and viewing a Public Page. They may show a login message, but you still have full access to the content on the profile.

If, on the other hand, you are being asked to login or you see a message letting you know the page isn’t visible to you, your Facebook Page still contains age or country restricted content, or is private and you’ll need to make it Public before using this plugin.

This is an example of what you’ll see when visiting an age restricted or private page when logged out of Facebook. These types of pages will either not work at all or will show limited content.
This is similar to the message you’ll see when visiting a page that has Country Restrictions in place.

Generally, restrictions like these are not a problem for most Companies, Groups, and Organizations, but it does mean that you won’t be able to use it to display your Personal Facebook Profile. Some companies, such as alcohol companies, have age requirements on their content and so they also require you to be logged in to access their Facebook profile. If you are determined to use this plugin with your personal profile, you’ll first need to convert your personal profile to a Public Page.

Finally, you should double check your Facebook Page’s settings to be sure you don’t have any settings enabled which will require a login, such as Privacy Settings or Age Restrictions.

To verify that your page is Public and doesn’t require a login to view, visit these settings. Be sure you have no Country restrictions and that your content is available to anyone age 13 and up. In this example, the page is restricted to viewers in the United States and so may pose a problem.
