Support » Plugin: WPBook » [Plugin: WPBook] Share This Post (within Facebook) checked but not working

  • I have the checkbox Enable “Share This Post” (within Facebook) checked but when the automated Facebook post is created it doesn’t have a Share option. The only options on the Facebook page for the post are: Like, Comment, and Read More.

    Any ideas or conflicting settings I might be running into or is this a bug in the plugin?

    Seems like there is a solution here using the global “more” tag.

    Hate to add another option, though, when there are already so many – maybe we should just default to posting the teaser (the part before the more tag) but still use excerpts if they exist?

    So on my profile timeline it is actually using the excerpt I specify in my SEO settings rather than the <!—more> tag which is really not a problem at all.

    On the Fan page the item is posted nearly complete (well maybe 1/2). And when i share that post I actually see the <!–more> tag and the text continues on for the same about 1/2 of the article.

    TheCitizen – can you provide links?

    Both the post to the page wall and the profile wall use the same excerpt, so I’m not sure why it should be any different – I’m sending the same content to FB in either case.

    When I look at your profile timeline, I see a brief excerpt with a “see more” (which is put there by Facebook, not WPBook).

    When I look at the fan page, I see a brief excerpt (same as profile) with a “see more” but when I expand the “see more” I no longer can see the “more” link.

    Not sure why, since I’m sending the same in either case – it must be that Facebook is treating what it received differently.

    When you say “the excerpt I specify in my SEO settings” – are you using an SEO plugin?

    When I refer to the Excerpt I’m talking about the box right under the main post editing window, above “Send Trackbacks.” If you define an excerpt there WPBook will use it.

    Looks to me like you’re posting to your profile as a link, but to the page as a post.

    I have verified both the page and profile are supposed to be posting as links. (According to the WPBook settings page)

    If you look the excerpt on the timeline is not the same as what is in the actual post. i use a SEO plugin and there is a plce in the post editor to add my own Description explicitly for SEO. The timeline is getting that description rather than an excerpt directly from the post. Not that that is a bad thing as the more tag excerpt is typically larger and the SEO one is more succinct designed for, well, search engine results..
