    Hi, I wanted to know if the plugin Add Link to Facebook supports the new Facebook pages i.e., will the posts auto-posted to my Facebook page look —

    like this (new format)? http://img1.uploadscreenshot.com/images/orig/3/6217421488-orig.jpg

    OR like this (old format)? http://img1.uploadscreenshot.com/images/orig/3/6217431018-orig.jpg

    Live example: https://www.facebook.com/boygeek

    Please clarify,
    Thanks.

    Yes, it does, see this discussion for more details. You will need the development version to prevent links from being grouped.

    @Marcel: Thanks, I'll test it out, and report back if I find any issues.

    Hello again Marcel,

    How long is it before the development version is pushed out as stable release?

    The problem is, will there be a notification if there's a stable update when my website is running the development version?

    I release a new version each week, if there are notable changes.

    The current development version has the same version number as the current release. When I release the development version I increase the version number, so you will get an update notice (yes, I thought about this ;-)

    I will either today or tomorrow (MET) release a new version.

    To be complete: people using the Pro version can get minor development releases on request.

    @Marcel: My website is not doing good at the moment (it was). I plan to buy your pro version once I set everything right.

    And thanks for the info. :)

    Marcel, It doesn't seem to be working like you said. Plz see this screenshot: http://img1.uploadscreenshot.com/images/orig/3/6221255081-orig.jpg

    Do you notice the difference in the formatting of the manually added post and the post auto-posted to the Facebook page by the plugin?

    Try one or both of these:

    • Disable the option 'Use excerpt as message' (tab Appearance)
    • Enable the option 'Use links API instead of feed API' (tab Admin)

    That seems to have done the trick!!!

    Thanks Marcel.
