Write in PW and push to FB-timeline, - how to?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have shown PW to a collegue of mine and now he is thinking about to use it for his website. :lol:

Actually he sorts his needs, and there is one question:

Has anybody already written (short) posts / texts in PW and pushed them to facebooks timeline?

He don't like "work" in FB and pull that stuff into PW (what is already described here in forums). He would like it the other way round.

Many thanks!

Their site is currently not accessible for me, but I have found some good tutorial over its use. I will try again later.

I have been using dlvr.it - I found it was more reliable handling at ensuring the images made it through to FB. I had some troubles with RSS Grafitti. There are lots of other services out there for RSS to FB/Twitter, which seems like the easiest approach.

Mee too I had trouble with RSS graffiti. Also Hootsuite read RSS and push all entries on the social network you prefer. Sincerly is the first time i heard of dlvr.it, good to know :D

      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 "https://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.

      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.

      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
