Simple Facebook Connect
Just need to have posts go to Facebook (4 posts)

    Hi there,

    I've been looking for a plugin that will simply allow the posts I make to our WP site get posted to our facebook page. That's the only functionality I need since the part of our site that are "posts" are just weekly announcement updates.

    I assume this plugin can do it but is it the best to use for this basic functionality? Is there one that even more simple to use since I don't need all the fancy options?

    Just want to pick the right one before I start trying to configure things and make an app for our page and all that other stuff I don't know how to do yet. :)

    SFC can do it just fine, and the various options are, indeed, optional. If you don't turn on a feature, then the code for it never even gets loaded. This is to make the plugin as lean as possible.

    The creating-an-application bit is something you'll have to do with any plugin; Facebook has no other way to do it.

    OK, so I installed the plugin and am trying to configure it. We want to use this for our church which is setup as a Fan Page.

    How do I find my Fan Page ID? I went to my page and clicked Edit and saw a number in there so I tried that.
    Our page is: http://www.facebook.com/OakbrookChurchWI

    I originally got a 191 error but then I found where to put my Site URL in the facebook app page so it seemed to save the changes fine.

    I went to make a post and clicked the button for Post to Fan Page. I then got an error stating:
    API Error Code: 102
    API Error Description: Session key invalid or no longer valid
    Error Message: Iframe dialogs must be called with a session key

    I did see a prior post to resave the settings so I did that but it didn't help. I might not have set up my facebook application correctly for all I know.

    Any ideas?

    Also on a side note, how does this work if I post date a post. Will it go to my fan page at the time I set the post to go live or how does that work?

    The Page ID number is indeed the number in the URL of the edit page link.

    A 102 error from the manual publishing buttons means that you're not logged into Facebook properly in some way. Log out of FB, then log back in. Also make sure that you're logged in as *you*, not as the page.

    If you have auto publish on, then posts get pushed when they get published. Future posts get pushed when they become published posts.
