Facebook Widget

Last Updated: Jul 13, 2015 04:03PM PDT

Use these simple steps to enable your LiveWhale Facebook widgets.

Configuring your LiveWhale to access Facebook and subsequently display Facebook  posts on your site requires a simple one-time configuration setup on your part.

  1. Go to the above URL and log in. This application is tied to the account you provide here, so we recommend using an institutional Facebook account rather than a personal one, so that it lives on beyond you.
  2. Create a new app (Apps -> Create a New App)
  3. Enter a display name, namespace (optional), and select a category
  4. Enter the reCaptcha and submit.
  5. Use the following website to retrieve your facebook access token by replacing [APP ID] and [APP SECRET below with the app id and app secret you receive from facebook:[APP ID]&client_secret=[APP SECRET]&grant_type=client_credentials
  6. Once you receive your Facebook access token, go to your /clients/global.config.php file to add the Facebook-supplied value.
  7. Once you save, you can begin to utilize Facebook widgets across your site.
  8. The Facebook widget contains a new widget argument, show_owner_only, that allows you to show only posts made by the wall owner.

If you are at all concerned about editing your global.config.php file, please just email us at and we'll be happy to help.
