Hi guys,

I've installed this https://github.com/shoaibali/Facebook-Wall-Feed-widget-for-SilverStripe Facebook Feed widget, which seems to work fine on one of my apps that's running API version 2.0, but not on another running 2.4 (nothing shows up). I'm sure I have the App Id, Secret, Access tokens all right, and the settings within the app itself are the same as my previous app.

Any idea what could be causing this? I had thought there would be support for the 2.0 API up until at least next year.

Cheers, Finn.

By API version you are referring to Facebook, right?
SS2.4 support was discontinued in March. The widget might be far out of date if you're not talking about facebook.

Thanks for your reply! I managed to fix it by removing the

if ( $show_post && ( $show_status || ! $is_status ) )
conditional, and by appending
&fields=message,picture,created_time
to the URL.
Also, yes, I was referring to the Facebook API.
