Facebook Import

We are going to learn how to import your data from a Facebook Fan Page into your application with Twilight Tech CMS.


With this feature, you’ll be able to import from your Facebook Fan Page into your app in a few seconds your :

  • Images
  • Contact Information
  • Calendar
  • Places
  • Facebook Wall

You will need to create a Facebook API key to connect import your data from your page to your app. Click here to know how to do it.
– CAUTION – You absolutely need to enter your API into the Backoffice, not in the editor. To do it, go in
Backoffice –> Settings –> APIs –> Facebook API Keys

As the Facebook page feature, the Facebook import feature can only use Facebook fan page (the page you can like), not a Facebook user account (the one you can add as a friend).
