    If you having any problems please read Forum and posts any questions you have.

    If you having problem to display plugin properly then make sure to disable all other Facebook extensions and then test to find out if there is any conflict. If anther Facebook extension is still using old Facebook API codes then that can conflict with our extensions that are using latest API code. Please note that installation on Local Server will not work as Facebook Servers can not reach back to local server, to avoid any issues install it on Live Server. We have found that using IP address in URL instead of domain name can also cause problems with Facebook servers.

    In most cases a simple install on top of exiting installed plugin will do the upgrade.

    If you having an issues after upgrade you can try Uninstall old version and Install new version approach. Make sure to note down of settings you have configured before you uninstall old version as they will be removed when you Uninstall. Then install, configure and publish new version of plugin(s).
