Facebook Posts on PW site using Facebook PHP SDK?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had any recent experience displaying Facebook posts using the Facebook PHP SDK?

I find the Facebook documentation to be confusing and I'm coming up short in finding recent information and code examples online.

Any help is appreciated.

A quick google search brings up a relatively recent module Facebook Events. Reading through the docs and code should get you started.

I've used the code on this tutorial for at least 4 or 5 sites, and it's rather easy to tweak for your needs. (You can pay for the full source code if you want to reward the developer for his work, but you don't have to: you can copy and paste the various parts needed).

      Hello,
      this module can publish content of a Processwire page on a Facebook page, triggered by saving the Processwire page.
      To set it up, configure the module with a Facebook app ID, secret and a Page ID. Following is additional configuration on Facebook for developers:
      Minimum Required Facebook App configuration:
      on Settings -> Basics, provide the App Domains, provide the Site URL, on Settings -> Advanced, set the API version (has been tested up to v3.3), add Product: Facebook Login, on Facebook Login -> Settings, set Client OAuth Login: Yes, set Web OAuth Login: Yes, set Enforce HTTPS: Yes, add "http://www.example.com/processwire/page/" to field Valid OAuth Redirect URIs. 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, an access token is kept.
       
      Download
      PW module directory: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/auto-fb-post/ Github: https://github.com/kastrind/AutoFbPost   Note: Facebook SDK for PHP is utilized.

      Good morning folks. I've been going around in circles since last week on this one. I've got caching turned off on my site, but, wondering if there is an extra step I need to take when publishing a page when using  FacBook's social plugin? 

      I've got a template for my news articles with  FaceBook's social share plugin embedded. After publishing the page, going to the article on the front end on the site, and clicking share, the share dialog in many cases will have the right page content but frequently it comes up with my custom 404 page.
      FaceBook must be pinging back, in order to server up the custom 404, - so that seems to rule out the server blocking the ping-back.
      Using the FaceBook debugger I can Show Existing Scrape information and see that it had a 404 response. However, without changing anything on the site, if I use the debugger to re-scrape the page there is no 404 and the page comes right up.
      it seems as though even if the page is published and has been loaded in the browser when FaceBook calls back to my processwire site it's telling FaceBook the page doesn't exist. When this happens, I go over to the debugger, click re-scrape, and the page comes up fine -- but, I can't keep doing this all day long. (see the attached images)

      Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

      If it is any help I'm using Processwire 2.7.2 and Zurb Foundation 5

      Hi folks,
      Bit of an odd one... I'm adding some meta tags for Facebook and Twitter to the head.inc file and I'm trying to make the output per tag as global as possible. These are the tags I have so far:
      <meta property="og:title" content="<?php echo $page->title; ?>" /> <meta property="og:image" content="" /> <meta property="og:url" content="<?php echo $page->url; ?>" /> <meta property="og:description" content="" /> <meta name="twitter:url" content="<?php echo $page->url; ?>"> <meta name="twitter:title" content="<?php echo $page->title; ?>"> <meta name="twitter:description" content=""> <meta name="twitter:image" content=""> As you can see I have a few obvious ones set up, but I'm curious to know how you all might think about outputting the image and description meta information? I'm thinking finding the first image on the page and the first text output on the page but that's a little tricky, isn't it? Do you think these should be set up as separate fields for pages within the CMS for the client to fill out as they fill out the pages... as part of the process for SEO? And if there's any tips to why using these tags are bad please do say so.
      Many thanks,
      R

      I don't always want to bother registering users, I just want them to be able to log in. I'm not alone because there are a number of other threads about OAuth, none of which mentions Opauth.
      Opauth is a lean, non-opinionated, modular PHP thingy. It has 18 providers listed on their page, some of which are built-in, some are 3rd-party. Their website itself is an example, and it's on github as well.
      It's lean: it doesn't need the provider SDKs, it implements only what it needs in the auth modules.
      It's non-opinionated: you give your user a link to /auth/facebook, and then you are waiting for the results on /auth/callback; what you do with the returned array is your choice (the urls are of course customizable).
      I could put together Twitter / Google / Facebook auth for a (non-processwire) site really quick. I stored the API auth params for the modules in a table as json-encoded hashes (just 2 keys and  2 values, but the keys vary by API, so that was the easiest), and I did the same with the returned credentials. Besides provider, uid, and credentials (what we really need), Opauth also returns a somewhat variable set of details about the profiles in the info key, stuff like name, gender, urls, and the like; the Processwire module could opt to mine and store in fields whatever it deems useful, then store the rest as json, or just throw it away. An example for what you get in your callback:
      Array ( [auth] => Array ( [provider] => Facebook [uid] => 1480000000008166 [info] => Array ( [name] => Tibs [image] => https://graph.facebook.com/1480000000008166/picture?type=square [first_name] => Tibs [urls] => Array ( [facebook] => https://www.facebook.com/app_scoped_user_id/1480000000008166/ ) ) [credentials] => Array ( [token] => CAAEajKBojCkBAHj6cy0mM4EZBPvs082t5Vkm3PGa44jsfrfzCS1SwV09qOaZBQYnfxLnCacb7Wkr536wDzusIh4mkMmvwoC5VdZBKFRAGyLpqcVJYdWCIFv0iwfkjpiLpDsGVBChj1ac1Lq6ZBFjuCdrtfpcQtgWbonDVCzwGwZB0A37vLaQbCuh8OnbdRY1U1dPE2ZBU2PmgNGNP1ghzNo [expires] => 2016-01-06T10:29:53+00:00 ) [raw] => Array ( [id] => 1480000000008166 [first_name] => Tibs [gender] => male [link] => https://www.facebook.com/app_scoped_user_id/148000000000166/ [locale] => en_US [name] => Tibs [timezone] => 1 [updated_time] => 2015-01-25T19:54:12+0000 [verified] => 1 ) ) [timestamp] => 2015-11-07T11:20:56+00:00 [signature] => hmcuwumqat4w84g1gkw0cgokloogg4w ) To be honest, I'm not even working on anything in Processwire at the moment, but I wanted to post about Opauth since I discovered it. If someone decides to implement OAuth before I get around it myself, Opauth is the perfect candidate to do the heavy lifting
