We're using Smash Baloon's Custom Facebook Feed Pro plugin found below:

Once you've installed and activated the plugin, go under Facebook Feed, Settings, and connect your Facebook account. With that connection, you can decide to display the Facebook page or group timeline and in this guide, we will be showing the Facebook page.

You will receive a prompt to allow the connection to your Facebook account and then it will bring up the custom feed settings page again with a popup asking you to select the page to use and click connect. This should add your page to the connected accounts section and automatically fill the ID and access token for you.

Now on a post or page, you will want to bring up the editor and add the Custom Facebook Feed block. This will add the content to your site for your visitors to see and you have the option to customize the display under Facebook Feed, Settings to show how you want.

    If I’m using a page builder like Elementor, would I just drop the shortcode in a text element or shortcode element?

    Christina, thanks so much for sharing this – very helpful. Currently, I do not have a blog, rather a website using an Elementor theme. In order to implement, would I create a new page, or could I add my Facebook timeline into my homepage or other?? Thanks in advance!!

    Thank you for the insights.

    Can one use that plugin more then once on one site to connect multiple pages? Or does the plug in offer you the option to link more then one page to one site?
