Post custom Facebook message on users' accounts (5 posts)

    Hi - does anyone know of a plugin - or have other code somewhere - for allowing a site user to share a custom-generated (generated by php) message as a status on their Facebook page?

    I'd like to have a button where, when a user clicks on it, it posts a message that I generate, to their Facebook wall.

    I'm starting with the Simple Facebook Connect plugin, to see where I can go from there. Is there a way to do this just with SFC?

    Thanks for any tips or code you have. (:

    You'd have to write some custom code to do it, but yes it could be done.

    You probably want to look into the Javascript SDK:

    Hi Otto, thanks for the tip. Is there an SFC plugin in particular that would be easiest to start with, or just go from the SFC base?

    SFC Publish creates code similar to what you're trying to do, but honestly it's older Connect code. If you're wanting to do something custom at this point, especially with the Javascript SDK, I wouldn't use SFC as a base for it right now.

    I'll have a new version 1.0 out soon that will migrate to the newer SDKs.
