Trying out the Facebook widget without signing up

With FeedWind you can create a Facebook widget which will display your posts from any public Facebook page. You can try out the Facebook widget without having to create a signup. Note: Although you can see the widget you create in the preview window, you will not be able to save your widget or get the code snippet, so we really recommend you sign up for a free account to save and get the code.

After clicking on the Try our new Facebook widget button, your setup screen will be updated. Once you see the new setup screen, paste or enter your Facebook page URL into the field provided.

IMPORTANT NOTE: For FeedWind to display any content from Facebook, the source page must be a published page. i.e it must be publicly accessible. If you are not sure how to do this, please see this Facebook help article about publishing your page. If the page does not belong to you , you must contact the page owner to request publication; otherwise, you cannot publish posts using Feedwind as we use the Facebook API which disallows access to posts for unpublished pages.
