Hey there, Could this plugin be used in an offline environment? ie – does it need any external/web calls (like google analytics) to work?

Hi – remote calls are required to get statistics for Facebook and Twitter. Other data like posts, categories or authors comes from database used by the Wordpress instance.

Also some external scripts/styles are delivered from cdn servers (like http://bootstrapcdn.com), but this can be easily changed (by downloading these files and changing paths to local ones).

Wow this plugin has not been supported/update for more than a year. Just lost a sale


Thanks for your comment. Plugin wasn’t upgraded indeed (it just still works well), after initial release only minor changes were applied in terms of better compatibility with older PHP versions or when FB changed API. However I can’t agree it’s not supported – each comment and mail from client is answered, usually within a few hours.

Hello do you have a documentation how to setup the app on Facebook so I can use it on the plugin.

Hi, Documentation is included in the package with plugin, check “documentation” folder. There is a part “C) Configuration”, where you can find the process of FB App setup described:

Facebook requires registering an application in their developers platform. You can use App ID and App Secret from one of your existing Facebook apps or create a new one. In order to add new app, visit this URL and click “Skip and Create App ID” button. In new popup, please provide just the name of the app and its category. When app is created, you’ll be able to check its ID and Secret parameters.

Here is the Facebook URL mentioned above: https://developers.facebook.com/quickstarts/?platform=web

What are the main differences between this and your other social analytic plugin? Are they solely separate or do they go hand in hand?

Thanks for your comment.

Analytics Dashboard displays overall statistics of your blog and social media profiles (number of fans on Facebook, number of followers on TT or Instagram).

WP Social Analytics is focused only on social media and only on posts/pages. It shows how many times your post has been shared on FB, Twitter and other social media networks.

Be sure to check demos of both plugins, it should make it much more clear then.

Plugins are being sold separately.
