The Custom Facebook Feed plugin
As I was looking for Facebook Feed plugins I came across the Custom Facebook Feed WordPress plugin which offered a really nice and easy to use UI.
I will show you the main areas to give you an impression of what the plugin offers.
NB! You will notice that certain areas are locked and can only be opened by purchasing the Pro version. The free version works pretty well on its own. The Pro offers lot more options.
After having installed and activated the plugin a new sidebar area is seen on the left side:
Custom Facebook Feed Settings -> Configuration
Here you add your Facebook Page or group ID and make various other adjustments to what is seen.
As well as copy the shortcode to where you want to display the feed.
Custom Facebook Feed Settings -> Customize -> General
Here you can customize the look of the feed box.
Custom Facebook Feed Settings -> Customize -> Post Layout
Most of the areas here are blocked from the free version, but at the bottom one can adjust the styling of the posts.
Custom Facebook Feed Settings -> Customize -> Typography
Click the screenshot and scroll through the options. As you see there are a lot.
One can really go in and adjust as much as one likes.
Custom Facebook Feed Settings -> Customize -> Misc
Custom Facebook Feed Settings -> Customize -> Custom Text / Translate
Here you can easily change the wording or translate the words into another language.
To get started using Custom Facebook Feed plugin:
Go to Custom Facebook -> Settings -> Configuration and insert your Facebook page or group.
Copy the shortcode further down in the same settings page.
Go to where you want to display the custom feed and insert the shortcode.
The default look of the feed in the frontend sidebar looks like this (here I connected to Smashballons facebook page):
The Custom Facebook Feed plugin has a lot of options but a few of these are locked so one needs to really consider if the free version covers what one needs, find another or go with purchasing the plugin. (I have included an affiliate link so that if you do decide on purchasing I will get 20% of the purchase amount. Thank you.)
From my impression of the free plugin it offers a lot of really good options and is easy to use. Smash Ballons have done a really nice job creating their Facebook feed plugin.
