Simple Like Page Plugin enables Facebook Page admins to promote their Pages and embed a simple feed of content from a Page into any WordPress blog. The Facebook Page Plugin we use in our plugin enables users to:

  • Read recent posts from the Page
  • Like the Page with one click, without needing to visit the Page
  • See Page Events
  • Send messages to your Page*

*To enable messaging on your Facebook page go to your Page Settings. In the row Messages check Allow people to contact my Page privately by showing the Message button

FAQ

I see the message “Error: Not a valid Facebook Page url.”. What am I doing wrong?

Page Plugin is only for Pages and not for Profiles, Events and Groups.

I don't think that this is necessarily the plugin's fault, but it adds a lot of bloat to your site. All requests are sent to external Facebook servers. My page loads a lot faster without it! To lessen its (visible) impact I always had it in my footer. Now I finally removed it. → My frontpage with this plugin: 3.5MB, 149 requests → My frontpage without the plugin: 1.7MB, only 80 requests! All according to Pingdom speed test.

If any free plugin deserves a top rating, its this plugin. I'll be more than happy to donate $$$ if available. wink!

I had a problem with the plugin in my theme, but topdevs' support helped me out in less than 2 days. Thanks a lot! You are great!

A shame they decided to add a SPAM ad for Oxygen to the dashboard. Yes, you can dismiss it, but it is very poor practice to put it there in the first place.

Had to ditch the "official" Facebook plugin as it was not compatible with PHP 7.0 or 7.1. This little Hucker is! Thanks Fornyhucker
