Wordpress Plugins – Extensions

Just another WordPress.com weblog

Wordbooker 1.8.7

Author: Steve Atty
This plugin allows you to cross-post your blog posts to your Facebook Wall. You can also “cross polinate” comments between Facebook and your WordPress blog

[Download] (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordbooker/) the ZIP file.
Unzip the ZIP file.
Upload the wordbooker directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
Navigate to Options → Wordbooker for configuration and follow the on-screen prompts.

Isn’t Wordbooker the same as importing my blog posts into Facebook Notes?

It is certainly similar, but not the same:

Facebook Notes imports and caches your blog posts (e.g., it subscribes to your blog’s RSS feed).

Wordbooker uses the Facebook API to actively update your Facebook Wall just as if you had posted an update yourself on facebook.com. It also means that you can make changes to your blog postings after initially publishing them.

With Wordbooker, your blog postings will have their own space in your Facebook Wall – just as if you’d written directly on to the wall yourself.
Your updates will show up with a nifty WordPress logo next to them instead of the normal “Notes” icon, plus a link back to the full entry on your blog.

How is this different from the WordPress application?

The WordPress application allows you to post to your wordpress.com blog directly from within Facebook. You cannot use the Facebook app with a self-hosted WordPress blog.

This Wordbook plugin works in the reverse direction. When you publish a new post or page, the plugin, in conjunction with the Wordbooker Facebook application, cross-posts your new blog entry to your Facebook account. You cannot use Wordbooker with a blog hosted at wordpress.com.

= Why doesn’t the Facebook Like / Facebook Share show up properly even though I’ve enabled it?

You may need to add the following to the HMTL tag in your theme : xmlns:fb=”http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml”.
So it looks something like :

Why aren’t my blog posts showing up in Facebook?

Wordbooker will not publish password-protected posts.
Any errors Wordbooker encounters while communicating with Facebook will be recorded in error logs; the error logs (if any) are viewable in the “Wordbooker” panel of the “Options” WordPress admin page.
To discourage spammy behavior, Facebook restricts each user of any application to approximately 25 posts within any rolling 24-hour window of time. If you’ve been playing around with Wordbooker and posting lots of test posts, you have likely hit this limit; it will appear in the error logs as error_code 4: “Application request limit reached”. There is nothing to do but wait it out.
Facebook sometimes incorrectly returns this result to application requests (other developers have also reported this problem with their Facebook apps; it’s not just Wordbook); there is also nothing the Wordbook plugin can do about this.

My WordPress database doesn’t use the default ‘wp_’ table prefix. Will this plugin still work?

Yes, and its also WPMU compliant.

How do I reset my Wordbooker/WordPress configuration so I can start over from scratch?

Click the “Reset configuration” button in the “Wordbooker” panel of the “Options” WordPress admin page.
Deactivate the Wordbook plugin from your WordPress installation.
Uninstall Wordbooker from your Facebook account.
Download the latest version
Re-install and re-activate the plugin.

What is the Enable Extended description for Share Link option do?

If you’re using the Share action link on your posts to Facebook it uses the META DESCRIPTION tag to extract something from your post. If you dont have an SEO system which populates this, or if you dont usally use post excerpts then selecting this option populates the tag with the first couple hundred characters of your post which gives a nice block of text in the post that will appear when people share your post on their wall.

How do I report problems or submit feature requests?

Use the Wordbooker Discussion Board. Either start a new topic, or add to an existing topic.
Do not use the Review Wall for support or feature requests. People are unable to respond to Review Wall posts; you are less likely to get a response.
