Integrating Events+ plugin with facebook

Hi

I'm testing Events+ plugin and one of the features that matters to me is the ability to load facebook events automatically to my website..

It seems like I need a Facebook App ID to do this.. But I'm a bit stuck on this point. Does that mean I need to create an App (I'm not a developer)? How exactly should I proceed if I want to be able to load facebook events to my website using Events+ plugin?

Would most appreciate some guidance.

    Hi Yoni,
    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    You don't need to be a developer to get the Facebook APP ID. Please follow the steps below to register a Facebook APP and get the ID.
    https://developers.facebook.com/docs/apps/register

    Once, you have this ID in the settings you will see other options to import events from Facebook.

    Hope that helps! Feel free to post a reply if you need further assistance :slight_smile:

    Hi Sajid

    That was easy, worked perfectly, thank you for the quick response.

    I have two more questions - let me know I should rather post each question on its own thread..

    1) how do I actually import facebook events now that I have configured the facebook integration?

    2) if I am making a paid event, can I stipulate more than 1 price for the event?

    regards

    Hi Yoni,

    Once you have it configured, than it will automatically check and import new events from Facebook on the interval you set in Events -> Settings -> Facebook Events Import Settings -> Run importer every:

    For your second question, I am not sure what you are exactly looking for. But, right now the Events+ plugin does not support multiple prices for one event out of the box.

    However, you can use MarketPress plugin to create a variable product with different pricing options.

    Yes, its always recommended to start a new thread for each of your question in future.

    Hope that helps! Feel free to post a reply if you need further assistance :slight_smile:
