Embedding facebook ‘wall’ on website?

  • # September 21, 2010 at 9:41 pm

    I want to be able to embed/display a facebook profile ‘wall’ which has all the updates onto another website.
    I have looked at the facebook developers section but none of the social plugins will do that.

    I assume i’d have to use their API and build a custom script?.. although i have no idea on that.

    Can anybody help me with this, i am looking to get it up asap.

    Thank you

    As far as I know, Facebook removed the RSS feed functionality as it relates to status updates back in Feb. Not sure about creating a custom script from the API, but I assume that if they removed the functionality from the front-end, they have most likely also blocked it from the API. The only thing I can think of would be to use an iframe, but that could get ugly really fast.

    I don’t mind using an iframe actually, if that is the only way.

    This did not work, said “The page you requested was not found”

    In looking further, I don’t think there is a way to do it with an iframe. Facebook looks like it disables access via iframe. Not sure there is a good way to do it at this point. Sorry, I couldn’t help.

    Yeah, that’s a shame. Thanks for helping me anyway.

    I will probably just put something else in its place instead.
