Importing from self-hosted WordPress to Facebook (5 posts)

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to import my blog into my Facebook notes section. I have followed the instructions here:

    http://wordpress.tv/2009/07/22/import-your-wordpress-blog-into-facebook/

    The various URLs I have tried to import are:

    http://www.newyorkgeek.com
    http://www.newyorkgeek.com/feed
    http://www.newyorkgeek.com/feed/

    I have also tried feed:// rather than http:// for all the above. Every time I try to import to Facebook I receive a message saying:

    Import Failed
    We couldn't find a feed using the URL you provided.

    I'm able to import other RSS feeds fine, it just seems to be this one URL.

    Any ideas? All help much appreciated

    Same problem. Have contacted Facebook but never got a response. Have tried all of the url's you used and then some and still can't get it to work.

    Had the same problem importing to an Amazon blog. Fixed that with http://www.blog.com/feed/rss/ but that hasn't helped with Facebook.

    Try this. I haven't tested it out fully but it seems to be working. RSS Graffiti

    Thanks - that appears to be an OK workaround. It doesn't import to my notes but does at least update my Facebook profile.

    I also reported it to Facebook and never heard back. Oh well.
