Getting Started

Just follow these steps to get things working for each of these social networks

Facebook

  1. Visit developers.facebook.com and create a new application. Please note, that you have to supply your domain where your blog is installed in the "App Domain" field and a complete URL like "http://yourdomain.com" in the "Website with Facebook Login" field.
  2. Visit http://YOUR_DOMAIN/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=wp-autosharepost-settings
  3. Copy and paste the "App ID" and "App Secret" shown on facebook for your application in the corresponding fields on the plugin settings page
  4. If you want to administrate a page then you can also provide the plugin with your your "Page ID"
  5. Save the settings
  6. After saving request a new "Access Token" with the "Request Access-Token" Link on the plugin settings page
  7. Your Facebook App will now ask for access to manage your page. Grant it and you're ready to share posts on Facebook.

Twitter

  1. Visit dev.twitter.com and create a new app
  2. Click on the "Settings"-Tab and locate "Application Type". Here you have to change the "Access"-Level" to "Read and Write". Save these settings.
  3. Go back to the "Details"-Tab and click "Create my access token" at the end of the page.
  4. Visit http://YOUR_DOMAIN/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=wp-autosharepost-settings
  5. Now copy and paste all needed settings. You need the "Consumer key", "Consumer Secret", "Access token" and "Access token secret" to tweet your posts

Bit.ly

In order to support URL shortening for your twitter links you should enable bit.ly by supporting the plugin with some valid login details.

  1. Visit bitly.com and sign up. If you are already registered log in now.
  2. Enter your bit.ly username in the corresponding field in the plugin settings page.
  3. Visit http://bitly.com/a/account and scroll down until you reach the "API Key" headline. Copy and paste this code to the plugin settings page.

CommentGrabber

  1. To enable the Facebook CommentGrabber just visit the plugin settings page under http://YOUR_DOMAIN/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=wp-autosharepost-commentgrabber
  2. Check "Enable CommentGrabber" to enable the CommentGrabber.
  3. Specify an interval in which the CommentGrabber checks for new comments on Facebook.
  4. Check the "Auto-Approve new Comments" Option to approve every comment which comes from Facebook directly.
  5. Because the CommentGrabber uses the WordPress Cron it is highly recommended, that you switch to a normal cron before using the CommentGrabber. If you do not your users may be interupted while trying to access your page. Some Facebook requests may take some time to finish.
