    Hi there,

    and first of all thanks for your plugin. I have a multilanguage site, so the content should be english when the site is in english, italian when the user is browsing in italian, but it is always english. How do I change this? Also, is there any way to remove the “xxx people like blabla” string?

    thanks a lot

      Hi Andrea,
      Thanks for installing my plugin.
      This plugin only calls the Facebook API and all the content inside is from facebook. I think the setting shsould be in facebook API settings.

      Hi there,
      I checked your issue, you are right. There is nothing problem with the plugin, I think it is you facebook privacy settings. Can you please confirm that your profile is available for public view in your privacy and tools settings?

    We use the plugin for a customer and it shows nothing, the fb account url is ok. When we put in another account the plugin shows the users of this account. We checked the rights but we can not find a difference between the accounts, do you have a sugestion?

        I’m having the same issue and I’ve tried using the Facebook ID number instead of account name but nothing shows inside of the sidebar box. Is there something else I need to set up to get the feed to display? Thanks!

    Hi, thank you for the plugin. I’ve tried similar plugins but I keep coming back to this one.
    I have one small question though, how do I center the box? Where should I add the center code to? thanks for your time.

    I have two web-sites for the same company. I am able to use your plug-in on one, but when I try to use it on the other the only part that shows is the Title. Is it limited to only one?

    Hi there,

    Hi there,

    I’ve been struggling to remove padding from a specific class called pam.

    I put this code in my style.css, but it doesn’t seem to do anything..? Also, I cannot find the pam class within the plugin editor, which is quite confusing?

    ‘.pam {padding: 0px;}’

    How can I reduce the padding of the facebook logo image?

    Hi, I love the plugin and use it on many sites. However, I have one customer with a website that has mulyiple Facebook accounts (one website with several different restuarants, each with their own Facebook page). Is there a way I can I use it on one site for multiple Facebook pages?
    Many thanks, Julia
