Create Facebook events automatically when you create WordPress posts. This plugin requires the Simple Facebook Connect plugin by Otto.
This plugin creates events in personal Facebook profiles and Facebook Pages.
Version 4.x is a major re-write to work with Facebook's new Graph API. It requires Otto's Simple Facebook Connect plugin v 1.x. You must configure SFC's Publisher module, which is used by SFCe to publish events to Facebook.
To create a Facebook event with this plugin, create or edit a post, scroll down the page to the Create Facebook Event section.
Provided the WordPress user account has been "Connected to Facebook" using the SFC plugin, they will see a form that will allow them to create an event in their Facebook profile or your Facebook Page. Fill in the event title and start time, tick the Create Public Facebook Event box and Update or Publish the post. If the WordPress user is not "Connected to Facebook" they will see a warning message and not see the form. The plugin handles Facebook security properly. The first time someone uses this plugin on your WordPress site, Facebook may ask the WordPress user to authorize this plugin.
SFCe can populate the event with data from the WordPress post - e.g. the post title etc, and SFCe can be configured with default values for many Facebook event parameters. WordPress site admins can configure SFCe to enforce default values or let users override them.
Example: We use this plugin to automatically create public Facebook events for our fan page when certain types of post are published. We also use it to create private Facebook events when other types of post are published.
