From my searches it looks like Placid is the way to go for showing Facebook contenton the front-end of my website. What I'm completely confused about is how to get started. Does anyone have a simple step-by-step answer on how I connect Placid to my Facebook page?
First, you would need to create an app for your Facebook page. You are also going to need a Facebook developer account: developers.facebook.com. Once your app is created and you have a Facebook developer account, I would recommend starting with the Facebook open graph explorer: developers.facebook.com/tools/explorer. With the explorer, you can build/debug your URL to add to Placid. The documentation for the Graph API is here: developers.facebook.com/docs/graph-api
The URL you are probably looking for in this specific case is in here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/graph-api/reference/v2.8/page/feed
you want graph.facebook.com/pageid/feed
If the url of your facebook page is: facebook.com/mypage your graph request for this case is: graph.facebook.com/mypage/feed
The graph API is great, but its very extensive.
