WPBook Lite
[resolved] Multiple users cross posting to Facebook Group (3 posts)

    It feels like I am staring this in the face and missing something obvious.

    How do I configure a FB app and wpbook-lite so that more than one user can post to a blog and have their post show up on FB in their own name?

    I've tried setting the FB Profile ID to another FB user who is an admin on the FB Group and regenerating the access token. It makes no difference.

    At this point all posts show up on the FB group in my name. I assume that is because I created the FB app. Is it possible for other people to post and have the posts show in their name? What am I missing?

    Appreciate any insights,
    Andrew P.

    WPBook lite doesn't currently support this feature. You can have multiple authors but only one destination for the Facebook posting at any given time.

    Not sure if the JetPack plugin for posting to Facebook does or not.

    Thanks for the response. Having all posts under one user is tolerable, but it needed to be someone who owned the site, not me as the developer.

    Eventually I did figure out that I needed to have the other user generate the access token while they were logged in to Facebook. That is the 'obvious' bit that I was missing. Simply changing the FB Profile ID and generating a new access token is not sufficient. The action must be performed by the FB user whose name is to be shown when items get posted to FB.
