A while back I wanted to add a custom Facebook feed to a website in order to display posts from a client’s Facebook page. The website was beautifully designed and I didn’t want to ruin the aesthetic by plonking a Facebook branded iframed news feed into it that looks like this.
So I struggled through the Facebook Developers website and after a few weeks of turmoil I was able to put together a PHP script which interacts with the Facebook API and extracts the feed data to allow you to display it however you want! Here’s a Demo.
To view the basic PHP code behind the plugin then check out the original tutorial here. Or if you want to add photos, videos, events, be able to filter out certain post types and display likes, shares and comments then check out the Custom Facebook Feed plugin.
You can download the plugin over at Smash Balloon, and watch a video below of how to setup and customize it.
