Support » Plugin: WP Facebook Auto Publish » No longer does what I need.

  • UPDATED REVIEW —
    Just discovered, not 10 minutes after publishing my original 5-start review, that the plugin no longer works. There is a scopes issue with Facebook, and the content the app publishes is not visible to anyone but me (because my Facebook app is in development mode).

    Will update review if this is fixed.

    ORIGINAL REVIEW —
    I spent *forever* trying to find a plugin that works, is consistent, and allows me to customize the posts. This does it all! Highly recommend 🙂

  • Hi guys,

    I’m facing the same issue. please advise.

    best

    As per new Facebook platform product changes and policy updates

    Apps in public mode no longer allow their admins, developers, or testers to access permissions or features that normally require app review. This affects all apps built after May 1st, 2018, immediately. Apps built before then will not be affected until August 1st, 2018.

    If you switch the app from live to development mode ,then it won’t show the invalid scope error and also posts will be auto published to Facebook,but the posts won’t be visible to others since the app is in development mode.These post will only appear when you make the app live.

    Your app need to go through the review process for the scopes publish_pages,manage_pages and user_photos to work with the existing plugin code.
    We did submitted several apps to Facebook for review . If Facebook approves them, we will create a guide and update our instructions.
    Since submitting app for review is a complicated and time consuming task, we are working on alternative method.If they approve our app then we can update the plugin code so that the user not need to create any Facebook apps,just authorise our app to auto post. All other settings will be remain unchanged .
    Thank you for the feedback and support

    I appreciate your response, however it won’t do much to resolve this as of now.

    The review process is quite complex, and from what I’ve gathered, my app wouldn’t be approved anyway: Facebook says that automatic publishing is no longer permissible. (I did try submitting it for review, but gave up.)

    If you do come up with a fix, please feel free to reply. When I see that it’s working, I’d be happy to update my review.
