I'm trying to use the Facebook wall module for the first time. I've installed it, created a Facebook App and thought that I'd entered all the right configuration information on both. However, the Facebook Wall/Settings/Page Information is telling me that it's "Not able to connect with Facebook".

Quite happy to accept that I've done something wrong but not a clue where to turn to diagnose what's happening as there doesn't appear to be any more information. Can anyone give me any pointers please?

If there's a good resource to guide me that would be really helpful - for example there seem to be different types of Access token, which one should I be using?

You have to check the permission to write to a user's wall, either during signup or doing it manually later - looks like you are missing that permission. You need to get appropriate permission from the facebook.

  • OK, thankyou for the suggestion. I'll have a look at that although in fact this module isn't about writing to a user's facebook wall, I just want to show their last few facebook posts on their website. The client is a small charity who would like to keep updating their facebook status but also show the posts on their website. Perhaps I'm going about this in the wrong way. – Mark K Jun 10 '15 at 8:44

That module shows that error if it cannot connect to https://graph.facebook.com using CURL, so I suspect either CURL isn't installed on your server or you've entered the Page Name/Access Toekn incorrectly

  • That makes sense, thank you. I may have the tokens wrong and I'll have another go. I'm a Newbie and not familiar with what CURL is, I'll need to read up on it. I'm using GoDaddy as a host, would I need to install something or is it somethign that GoDaddy would provide? – Mark K Jun 10 '15 at 10:06
  • According to support.godaddy.com/help/article/5614/… GoDaddy has CURL support – Colin Shipton Jun 10 '15 at 10:21
  • Thanks, you beat me to finding it :-) So I guess I must have the tokens wrong, OK, I'll try again! Thanks for your help. – Mark K Jun 10 '15 at 10:48
