Post to Facebook Change Author to another Page admin? (4 posts)

    When auto posting posting to Facebook pages, how would I change the name of the person who does the posting onto Facebook pages?

    I look after the back end of things but the page/site has someone else who posts on the WordPress blog (they are also an admin on the FB page).

    Your Facebook Page might grant multiple Facebook users the ability to create content (see various types of Page admins on Facebook.com). The Facebook plugin for WordPress allows a content creator to store the ability to post to a Facebook page. This association is displayed on the "Social Publisher" settings page.

    You should be able to disassociate a page and add it back through a different WordPress user authorized to create content for the given Facebook Page.

    Thanks Niall for your reply, was just about to log off and seen your reply. Will route through Page admin permissions tomorrow evening and will let you know how I get on.

    As far as I understand it, the other Admin has to be a verified (phone or credit card) developer. I would have to add them as Administrators of the App created in the Developer App centre.
    This is not so easy for me to get sorted. Is there not an easier way of letting them get added as the person who posts. I don't wish to have all my FB friends seeing every article that gets posted or comments that are made.
    I realise FB has various permissions but all in all it takes time to go through everything to ensure the posts/comments are only visible to myself.
