[Plugin: Simple Facebook Connect / SFC-Publish] Having troubles with long posts

    Hi all,

    I would like to use SFC-Publish to publish new posts from a wordpress blog to the companies facebook fan page. This works fine for short wordpress posts, but after reaching a specific length (like most of the posts) the “Post to the Page’s Wall” window just pops up with a facebook image and “Go to Facebook.com”. If you click on “Go to Facebook.com”, you’ll be forwarded to facebook.com and the message “An error occurred. Please try again later.” appears.

    I don’t need to publish the whole content to the facebook fan page wall (if this should cause the problem). I just want to post an automatic generated notice, that there is a new entry on the wordpress site.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Best regards,
    Matt

    Length doesn’t matter, as the post content will get truncated to 1000 characters (the maximum length allowed on Facebook).

    Otto, thanks for your fast response!

    It thought so, but nevertheless this problem only appears with “long” posts. If I am just using the following text in the post, everything is fine:

    WordPress is web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog. We like to say that WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.
    
    The core software is built by hundreds of community volunteers, and when you’re ready for more there are thousands of plugins and themes available to transform your site into almost anything you can imagine.

    If I double the length by copy and paste, the error occurs:

    Screenshot of the error can be found at the following location: http://kb.initso.at/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/FB-Publish_problem.jpg

    Do you have an idea what the problem could be?

    Thanks.

    No idea. And I can’t reproduce the problem either. Here’s what I get with your text:

    View post on imgur.com

    See? No issues there. Perhaps something in your browser or incorrectly set up with your FB Application? Not sure.

    Are you using the latest version of the code (1.0)?

    I’ve performed some further testing.

    It seems that the problem occurs at a specific number of words (132 in this case):

    If I join the last two words, it works like a charm: http://kb.initso.at/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/Works.tiff

    The odd thing is, if I use a different text, the problem happens at another amount of words (101):

    Quite an odd issue. Otto, might there be a way to debug this issue somehow?

    Regarding the version, I am using Simple Facebook Connect Version 0.25

    Version 0.25 is super old and will probably stop working totally in about a month. Upgrade to 1.0.
