Deprecated Settings *
posts (true/false) – posts has been replaced by tabs as of 1.4.0. There is a fallback in place to convert it to tabs
[facebook-page-plugin href="facebook" width="300" height="500" cover="true" facepile="true" tabs="timeline" adapt="true"]
This will display a Facebook page feed that loads in the page
facebook.com/facebook that is 300px wide but adapts to it’s container, 500px high, displaying the page’s cover photo, facepile and recent posts in the same language as the site. See the screenshots tab for a demonstration of how it will appear
Changes who can see the shortcode generator on the dashboard. Default:
Changes the Facebook App ID.
What happened to “Show Posts”?
The latest version of the API has removed show posts and replaced it with
tabs which is more dynamic. To show just the posts, your tabs value should be “timeline”. To hide the posts,
tabs should be empty (shortcode) or select “none” (widget). If you’re using the shortcode, remember that by default it shows the timeline so you must set it as either an empty or false value to hide posts ie
tabs="false". If the posts option is already being used it will be converted to tabs.
What languages are available?
As of version 1.2.0, the plugin is available in all languages provided by Facebook ( full list availabe here ).
Great job Cameron 🙂
