    Hello!

    Welcome to the Community!

    I just did a quick test to see if I could get the widgets to show up on a test install and had no issues.

    Are you able to see any widgets at all?

    Have you granted extended permissions?

    A link would also be helpful.

    thanks!

    here is what i found -
    if i don't check the 'Allow users to register with Facebook' in the configuration, the login widget wont show up. I have sorted the login widget by checking that option

    * But the other widgets (facepile & comments) are still not visible on my sidebar
    please help on that

    * Do you have a shortcode for fb comments like [wdfb_like_button]

    * Also is there any docs for configuring 'autoposts', looks like its difficult to get it to work
    - but that's not on my priority list

    Hi,
    * yes i have granted extended permissions
    * Yes the plugin is successfully connected with the app.

    regarding shortcodes, I tried to use this in entry.php file of my theme
    it does not work, also whats the shortcode for fb comments
    <?php echo do_shortcode('[wdfb_like_button]');?>

    Thanks for the attachment for autopost, I will try that and let you know incase of issues.

    Autoposting is working fine, thx for the screenshot picture.
    is it possible for all the respective authors on my site to post to their own facebook walls

    at this moments all the posts are published on a particular users wall that i select in the configuration.

    Hi there!

    I'm afraid that the plugin will post to the wall of the App that it is tied to. However, I have not tried to allow the authors to grant extended permissions to Facebook, this may allow them some access, it's worth testing. i will look into it as well.

    As for the shortcodes, there is no comments code that I am aware of, the only ones available are on the Shortcodes page in the Facebook plugin menu.

    I visited your site and see that the widgets are missing. have you decided to remove them or do we still need to work on that issue as well? If so, can you please provide a screenshot of your settings so we can work on that.

    Best,

    Kimberly
