Automatic ‘Copy WordPress Posts to Facebook’ Function


I was annoyed when this facility was removed amidst a flood of incomprehensible jargon and computer-jabber. I was even more annoyed when google and Bing searches gave more of the same, but the gist was either that it was no longer an option, or that one would have to pay for an interface.

Then, just for fun, I clicked on the title of my then latest post, copied the address at the top, and pasted that on my Facebook wall. Instant reproduction of post!  So that is how I will handle it in future to keep several Fb fans happy who don’t do WP.  It means that I will in future be the one to do it automatically, but so what?  It’ll still happen!

And now, here we have a pair of portraits of self and spouse by a promising young artist.  J (7) was rightly proud of them! I do think mine is a bit flattering, though . . .

The colours of the clothing was carefully matched by the artist.

    Having joined Facebook in its infancy I finally gave up on it last year. It has changed beyond all recognition and definitely not for the better. If there’s anything of interest I should know about then I’m sure someone will let me know, otherwise I’m no longer interested.

    J’s pictures are lovely, such promise. I often wonder how the young seem to know more about what aliens look like than we do. Well done J, excellent job!

  3. You’ve got the answer. It has to be done manually. The new page they invite you to make is just a money-grabbing effort

    I used to prefer posting them manually when they used to let you choose the photo they would show (not sure if you noticed, but I occasionally have many photos). Once they removed that option, I had it on automatic.

    Now, I’m back to doing it manually which means I’m on Facebook for a few minutes every day. Not a big deal, but a bit annoying.
