AutoFbPost

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have created a module that, given a Facebook app ID and secret, posts on Facebook on behalf of a user profile or page after a PW page is saved.

This module is configurable as follows:

  • Templates: posts can take place only for pages with the defined templates
  • On/Off switch: specify a checkbox field that will not allow the post if checked
  • Specify a message and/or an image for the post

Usage

edit the desired PW page and save; it will post right after the initial Facebook log in and permission granting. After that, a token is kept.

Note: Facebook SDK for PHP is used.

Hello dimitrios,

Thank you for developing this! Could you also post it to the modules directory? Doing so makes it easier for people to locate and install your module.

I use PW3 and I always get this error message if I try to login in backend after uploading the module to the server:

Is this module not compatible with the latest PW version?

Best regards Jürgen

Removing the session_start() from the AutoFbPost.module at the beginning solves this problem

Hello Juergen,

I am sorry for such a late answer. You are right, this is not needed since PW manages the session.
I will try to test this module with various PW versions and update it. Thank you for your post!

Hi,

seems this is written for php 5.4... I'm not on that yet :-)

Would you consider making it < 5.4 compatible?

Hello,

I will consider it, although I am on a tight schedule lately. However, I'm not sure if it would be wise, because the old Facebook PHP SDK v3 is now deprecated, so there will be zero maintenance from their part.

Hey,

First off, thanks for this great module.

I was just wondering where the On/off checkbox is meant to show as every time I save the page at the moment it gets posted to Facebook and I'd rather have it that you check that checkbox and it stops posting to facebook?

Thanks!

You need to create a new checkbox field, give it a name like autofbpost and add the field to your template. Next configure the module: in the inputfield On/Off Checkbox, enter the name of the field you created.

Hello,

thank you for your kind words @alexmercenary, I'm glad it was of use to you. @flydev, that is absolutely right, you need to create a checkbox field as with any other field or use an existing one and insert it into the template.

cant seem to get it working with facebook. keeps giving me this error:

AutoFbPost: post failed; click here to log in with Facebook.

URL blocked: This redirect failed because the redirect URI is not white-listed in the app's client OAuth settings. Make sure that the client and web OAuth logins are on and add all your app domains as valid OAuth redirect URIs.

my settings: https://www.dropbox.com/s/y4ajeac4wwlyup4/Screenshot 2017-07-07 16.53.23.png?dl=0

and platform the website url.

any help would be appreciated

This module seems not compatible with the latest Facebook policy. If you want to post something through a Facebook app, you need to apply for the permission. Otherwise, it ask for login every time just as your case.

Anyone noticing that the module isn't posting the images or description?

If so is there any fix or anything I am missing?

@videokid yeah I do have opengraph in the header but it isn't detecting the image field, it's just using the site logo as the post image and the default site description as the description. It's weird.

I do: https://www.featherbow.co.uk/gallery/cherington-open-plan-kitchen/

By the way thanks for the help on this.

I'm using MarkupSEO which is auto detecting the image field as it turns out so I don't actually need to add anything into the AutoFbPost field for image field name etc. Although I have anyway. The default 'images' field.

Thank you for your time

Well I don't see anything wrong....
But it is your default description indeed [MarkupSEO isn't picking up body/description field?].

Personally I'm not using MarkupSEO, I have everything in my _init.php configured and, so far at least, it is working....
It's a pretty old website, still running pw 2.7.1/2..... Haven't tried it on pw 3.x yet, but I guess this has nothing to with pw...

I had a strange experience once where FB wasn't picking up any opengraph whatsoever, and I actually had to create a facebook app id for that site, but so far I've encountered it only once.... that was very weird too.... 

Sorry I can't be more informative....

Weirdly it's working now... Or at least the image is loading the correct one.

I have just cleared the default meta description from the MarkupSEO module settings and added directly to the homepage and then used the body as the smart description so it is used for open graph description and meta description for all other pages and that isn't showing the correct description yet when being posted but perhaps Facebook caches the results for a while?
 

Either way you have been a BIG help and I can't thank you enough for taking the time to take a look with me!

Thank you @videokid

Hello,

this module has been updated and it is now compatible with Graph API version 2.10.

Parameters 'description' and 'name' are not supported by the new Graph API version. Therefore, fields for description and name cannot be provided anymore.

Hi,

I have problems to connect the module to FB app, I get the error mentioned by benbyf her above: AutoFbPost: post failed; click here to log in with Facebook. Then the error message says: "App not configured. This App is still in development mode and you can't access it"...

Is there anything else I need to set in facebook? I've tried all possible configuration and I don't know where to check now. Screenshot attached. Thanks a lot for any help.

      This is a lightweight alternative to other newsletter & newsletter-subscription modules.
      You can find the Module in the Modules directory and on Github
      It can subscribe, update, unsubscribe & delete a user in a list in Mailchimp with MailChimp API 3.0. It does not provide any forms or validation, so you can feel free to use your own. To protect your users, it does not save any user data in logs or sends them to an admin.
      This module fits your needs if you...
      ...use Mailchimp as your newsletter / email-automation tool ...want to let users subscribe to your newsletter on your website ...want to use your own form, validation and messages (with or without the wire forms) ...don't want any personal user data saved in any way in your ProcessWire environment (cf. EU data regulation terms) ...like to subscribe, update, unsubscribe or delete users to/from different lists ...like the Mailchimp UI for creating / sending / reviewing email campaigns *I have only tested it with PHP 7.x so far, so use on owners risk
      EDIT:
      I've updated the module to 0.0.3. I removed the instructions from this forum, so I don't have to maintain it on multiple places. Just checkout the readme on github 🙂
      If you have questions or like to contribute, just post a reply or create an issue or pr on github.

      Hej,
      A module which helps including Photoswipe and brings some modules for rendering gallery markup. Feedback highly appreciated
      (Also pull requests are appreciated 😉 - have a new Job now and don't work a lot with ProcessWire anymore, yet, feel free to contact me here or on GitHub, Im'm still "online"!)

      Modules directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/markup-processwire-photoswipe
      .zip download: https://github.com/blynx/MarkupProcesswirePhotoswipe/archive/master.zip
      You can add a photoswipe enabled thumbnail gallery / lightbox to your site like this. Just pass an image field to the renderGallery method:
      <?php $pwpswp = $modules->get('Pwpswp'); echo $pwpswp->renderGallery($page->nicePictures); Options are provided like so:
      <?php $galleryOptions = [ 'imageResizerOptions' => [ 'size' => '500x500' 'quality' => 70, 'upscaling' => false, 'cropping' => false ], 'loresResizerOptions' => [ 'size' => '500x500' 'quality' => 20, 'upscaling' => false, 'cropping' => false ], 'pswpOptions' => (object) [ 'shareEl' => false, 'indexIndicatorSep' => ' von ', 'closeOnScroll' => false ] ]; echo $pswp->renderGallery($page->images, $galleryOptions); More info about all that is in the readme: https://github.com/blynx/MarkupProcesswirePhotoswipe
      What do you think? Any ideas, bugs, critique, requests?
      cheers

      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      OAuth2Login for ProcessWire
      A Module which give you ability to login an existing user using your favorite thrid-party OAuth2 provider (i.e. Facebook, GitHub, Google, LinkedIn, etc.)..
      You can login from the backend to the backend directly or render a form on the frontend and redirect the user to a choosen page.
      Built on top of ThePhpLeague OAuth2-Client lib.
      Registration is not handled by this module but planned.
       
      Howto Install
      Install the module following this procedure:
       - http://modules.processwire.com/modules/oauth2-login/
       - https://github.com/flydev-fr/OAuth2Login
      Next step, in order to use a provider, you need to use Composer to install each provider
      ie: to install Google, open a terminal, go to your root directory of pw and type the following command-line: composer require league/oauth2-google
      Tested providers/packages :
          Google :  league/oauth2-google     Facebook: league/oauth2-facebook     Github: league/oauth2-github     LinkedIn: league/oauth2-linkedin
      More third-party providers are available there. You should be able to add a provider by simply adding it to the JSON config file.

      Howto Use It
      First (and for testing purpose), you should create a new user in ProcessWire that reflect your real OAuth2 account information. The important informations are, Last Name, First Name and Email. The module will compare existing users by firstname, lastname and email; If the user match the informations, then he is logged in.
      ie, if my Google fullname is John Wick, then in ProcessWire, I create a new user  Wick-John  with email  johnwick@mydomain.com
      Next step, go to your favorite provider and create an app in order to get the ClientId and ClientSecret keys. Ask on the forum if you have difficulties getting there.
      Once you got the keys for a provider, just paste it into the module settings and save it. One or more button should appear bellow the standard login form.
      The final step is to make your JSON configuration file.
      In this sample, the JSON config include all tested providers, you can of course edit it to suit your needs :
      { "providers": { "google": { "className": "Google", "packageName": "league/oauth2-google", "helpUrl": "https://console.developers.google.com/apis/credentials" }, "facebook": { "className": "Facebook", "packageName": "league/oauth2-facebook", "helpUrl": "https://developers.facebook.com/apps/", "options": { "graphApiVersion": "v2.10", "scope": "email" } }, "github": { "className": "Github", "packageName": "league/oauth2-github", "helpUrl": "https://github.com/settings/developers", "options": { "scope": "user:email" } }, "linkedin": { "className": "LinkedIn", "packageName": "league/oauth2-linkedin", "helpUrl": "https://www.linkedin.com/secure/developer" } } }  
      Backend Usage
      In ready.php, call the module :
      if($page->template == 'admin') { $oauth2mod = $modules->get('Oauth2Login'); if($oauth2mod) $oauth2mod->hookBackend(); }  
      Frontend Usage
      Small note: At this moment the render method is pretty simple. It output a InputfieldForm with InputfieldSubmit(s) into wrapped in a ul:li tag. Feedbacks and ideas welcome!
      For the following example, I created a page login and a template login which contain the following code :
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; if(!$user->isLoggedin()) { $options = array( 'buttonClass' => 'my_button_class', 'buttonValue' => 'Login with {provider}', // {{provider}} keyword 'prependMarkup' => '<div class="wrapper">', 'appendMarkup' => '</div>' ); $redirectUri = str_lreplace('//', '/', $config->urls->httpRoot . $page->url); $content = $modules->get('Oauth2Login')->config( array( 'redirect_uri' => $redirectUri, 'success_uri' => $page->url ) )->render($options); }
      The custom function lstr_replace() :
      /* * replace the last occurence of $search by $replace in $subject */ function str_lreplace($search, $replace, $subject) { return preg_replace('~(.*)' . preg_quote($search, '~') . '~', '$1' . $replace, $subject, 1); }

      Updated 2016-02-25:
      Version 1.1.0 is now released. It's been submitted to the module directory so should appear there soon. In the meantime, it's available on GitHub: https://github.com/gRegorLove/ProcessWire-Webmention. Please refer to the updated README there and let me know if you have any questions!
      ------------
      Original post:
       
      This is now out of date. I recommend reading the official README.
       
      I've been working on this one for a while. It's not 100%, but it is to the point I'm using it on my own site, so it's time for me to release it in beta. Once I finish up some of the features described below, I will submit it to the modules directory as a stable plugin.
      For now, you can install from Github. It works on PW2.5. I haven't tested on PW2.6, but it should work there.
      Feedback and questions are welcome. I'm in the IRC channel #processwire as well as #indiewebcamp if you have any questions about this module, webmention, or microformats.
      Thanks to Ryan for the Comments Fieldtype which helped me a lot in the handling of webmentions in the admin area.
      ProcessWire Webmention Module
      Webmention is a simple way to automatically notify any URL when you link to it on your site. From the receiver's perspective, it is a way to request notification when other sites link to it.
      Version 1.0.0 is a stable beta that covers webmention sending, receiving, parsing, and display. An easy admin interface for received webmentions is under development, as well as support for the Webmention Vouch extension.
      Features
      * Webmention endpoint discovery
      * Automatically send webmentions asynchronously * Automatically receive webmentions * Process webmentions to extract microformats   Requirements * php-mf2 and php-mf2-cleaner libraries; bundled with this package and may optionally be updated using Composer. * This module hooks into the LazyCron module.   Installation Github: https://github.com/gRegorLove/ProcessWire-Webmention

      Installing the core module named "Webmention" will automatically install the Fieldtype and Inputfield modules included in this package.   This module will attempt to add a template and page named "Webmention Endpoint" if the template does not exist already. The default location of this endpoint is http://example.com/webmention-endpoint   After installing the module, create a new field of type "Webmentions" and add it to the template(s) you want to be able to support webmentions. Sending Webmentions
      When creating or editing a page that has the Webmentions field, a checkbox "Send Webmentions" will appear at the bottom. Check this box and any URLs linked in the page body will be queued up for sending webmentions. Note: you should only check the "Send Webmentions" box if the page status is "published."   Receiving Webmentions This module enables receiving webmentions on any pages that have have "Webmentions" field, by adding the webmention endpoint as an HTTP Link header. If you would like to specify a custom webmention endpoint URL, you can do so in the admin area, Modules > Webmention.   Processing Webmentions (beta) Currently no webmentions are automatically processed. You will need to browse to the page in the backend, click "Edit," and scroll to the Webmentions field. There is a dropdown for "Visibility" and "Action" beside each webmention. Select "Process" to parse the webmention for microformats.   A better interface for viewing/processing all received webmentions in one place is under development.   Displaying Webmentions (beta) Within your template file, you can use `$page->Webmentions->render()` [where "Webmentions" is the name you used creating the field] to display a list of approved webmentions. As with the Comments Fieldtype, you can also generate your own output.   The display functionality is also under development.   Logs This module writes two logs: webmentions-sent and webmentions-received.   Vouch The Vouch anti-spam extension is still under development.   IndieWeb The IndieWeb movement is about owning your data. It encourages you to create and publish on your own site and optionally syndicate to third-party sites. Webmention is one of the core building blocks of this movement.   Learn more and get involved by visiting http://indiewebcamp.com.   Further Reading * http://indiewebcamp.com/webmention * http://indiewebcamp.com/comments-presentation * http://indiewebcamp.com/reply
