The Events Calendar 126.96.36.199 is here, providing support for a new extension that provides a workaround to Facebook’s API restrictions. Event Aggregator users will be able to grab this extension and starting importing some events from Facebook, just like the good old days!
While Facebook’s API restrictions are still the bane of WordPress users everywhere, our super awesome support team has created a new Facebook import extension that restores some of the previous import functionality for our users. It’s exciting, but please keep in mind that any workaround we provide (such as this extension) is subject to the whims of Mark Zuckerberg and crew.
Update: On December 10, 2018, Facebook launched a verification process for individual developers to continue using Facebook Platform APIs. As such, we no longer recommend using the Facebook import extension mentioned above.

The new extension isn’t the only news today. We’ve also got a fresh new update for users of The Events Calendar.
- Fix – Fixed an issue where a fatal error could be generated when trying to save a new Event Aggregator scheduled import
- Fix – Handle left-over Facebook scheduled imports and notices
- Tweak – Added the `tribe_aggregator_import_setting_origins` filter to the origins available for default import settings
