Facebook Group to WordPress

Description

A simple plugin that imports posts from public facebook groups to your WordPress blog, every half hour!

What it does & doesn’t

  • Imports from facebook group and inserts as fb_group_post post type
  • No chance for duplication
  • It imports comments as well
  • Runs every half hour via WordPress cron system
  • Adds group id, author name and ID, post link as post meta
  • If you want to trigger the importing manually, go to http://example.com/?fb2wp_test
  • Import historical (paginated) posts. To do this, go to http://example.com/?fb2wp_hist and it’ll automatically start the import process. Only admins can run this task.

great idea, but it doesn’t work

Not sure if the reason why it doesn’t work are the recent updates with Facebook API.

THIS plugin is actually a very good idea, but has to be re-worked to be functional. I’ve tried to install it on a couple of websites- using different Facebook APP IDs, but seems it doesn’t trigger data from FB at all.

Thanks for trying- anyway; if there will be any update, please let me know!

Nice Plugin but need to updates

Hi nice plugin but need to updates with new Facebook API and give more functionalities like listed below.
1) Facebook Feed from Page alos
2) Store data in existing post type like post etc.

Very good idea

I hope that this will have more development in the future, I’m making some changes myself, take a look:

preg_match('/https:\/\/scontent.xx.fbcdn.net\/.*\/\d*_(\d*)_\d*.*.jpg/', $fb_post->picture, $matches);
$imageurl = "https://graph.facebook.com/{$matches[1]}/picture?type=normal";

Using this you can get a better image quality.

Thanks!
