Simple Facebook 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 enables users to:

  • See how many users already like this Page, and which of their friends like it too
  • 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

You can easily integrate Like Box using WordPress Widgets and Shortcodes. Visit Plugin Page for more info and examples.

Installation Instructions


  1. Upload simple-facebook-plugin directory to your /wp-content/plugins directory
  2. Activate plugin in WordPress admin


  1. In WordPress dashboard, go to Appearance > Widgets.
  2. Drag and Drop SFP – Facebook Page Plugin into your sidebar.
  3. Click triangle near SFP – Facebook Page Plugin header.
  4. Enter your Facebook Page URL (not your profile URL).
  5. Choose width, height and other options you like.


Use [sfp-page-plugin] shortcode inside your post or page. This shortcode support all default parametrs:

  • url – any Fan Page URL (not your personal page!)
  • width – number (min 280, max 500)
  • height – number
  • hide_cover – true or false
  • show_facepile – true or false
  • small_header – true or false
  • timeline – true or false
  • events – true or false
  • messages – true or false
  • locale – valid language code (e.g. en_US or es_MX) see .xml file with all Facebook locales

If you want Page Plugin 320 pixels width and showing posts you need to use it next way:

[sfp-page-plugin width=320 show_posts=true url=http://www.facebook.com/yourPageName]


Use sfp_page_plugin() template tag in your theme files.

<?php if ( function_exists("sfp_page_plugin") ) {
    $args = array(
        'url'           => 'http://www.facebook.com/topdevs.net',
        'width'     => '300',
        'hide_cover'=> true,
        'locale'        => 'en_US'
    sfp_page_plugin( $args );
} ?>

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.

After years of inserting the Facebook social plugin code by hand, I thought to make it easy on myself. Too simple.

If you are looking for a more full featured Facebook custom feed, try the Custom Facebook Feed plugin.
