[Plugin: Simple Facebook Connect] post to FB timeline & specify date (3 posts)

    Hi WordPressers

    I couple of months back Facebook changed their service, and I migrated by application page to a fan page and linked up Simple Facebook Connect.

    I'm now looking at ways to publish all my old WordPress posts to the FB page's timeline.

    Is there a way to publish from WordPress, using SFC, and to specify the timeline date?

    I'm not sure whether I'm missing something in SFC, or whether this is a limitation of FB, but I don't see to be able to set the FB published date from within WordPress, or edit the date on the timeline. (I can edit the date of status updates entered directly into FB without problem).

    I'm still trying to understand how some of the latest FB changes work, and would really appreciate any advice. It's difficult to tell whether this is something I should spend more time trying to figure out, or whether its just not possible and time would be better spent elsewhere.

    Thanks for any ideas.

  2. I don't know of any way to backdate posts to Facebook, no.

    Thanks Otto, that's what I feared.

    For anyone else facing this, I ended up adding the WP posts to by FB page manually, and setting the date for each one. Long winded, but the only way I could find!
