What is the advantage of this mod over doing it manually?

Hi All,

Sorry for the dumb question, but this mod is a little pricey.  What is the advantage or steps saved over just piping in the RSS to FB manually.  I am happy to spend the $25 bucks if is saves time and/or makes the process easier.

Thanks!

It does facebook and twitter. It just automates the whole process. Just set it up and forget it.
I have no idea on the rss to fb haven't ever used that.

Hi,

Thanks for the quick reply.

MOD installed OK.  Everything looks OK, but get 401 on Step #2 setting up a feed:

Could not connect to Twitter. Refresh the page or try again later. - 401

I found a similar question and the answer I was looking for on another thread.   Now, new SMF posts to Twitter immediately.  Works great!  Thanks.

Another dumb question:

Actually, I am not so concerned about Twitter.  I want to post to FB, but I don't see a smilar panel in the MOD admin to enter the FB info as I did with Twitter. 

Quote from: Tweet Topics docs
Must do steps for FB Post Topics:
You need to create a FB application at https://developers.facebook.com/apps
For Basic Settings do the following
App Domain - Enter the domain name for your forum
Settings under Select how your app integrates with Facebook
Check the "Website" and enter your domain name

Step 2 grab the app id and app secret and fill them out in FB Post Topics Settings and Save
Step 3 click the link in FB Post Topics to get the token to post.
Step 4 Select boards to auto FB post and click Save Facebook Settings

What does this last part "fill them out in FB Post Topics Settings . . ." refer to.  I sounds like you do the same thing you did for Twitter, but as I said, I don't see a FB panel.  Am I misunderstanding what this is talking about?

Thanks again.

Twitter is working now correct?


There should be a link under "Tweet Topics System" below that says "FB Post Topics System"
If not
Attach your Sources/Admin.php

Thanks for your reply.  The system did not send me a notification, so I am just now seeing it.

Nope, no FB link.  See attached screenshot and admin.php as you requested.  Tks. v. much for your help as I am "dead in the water" here until we get his resolved.

Rex in Thailand.

I did this several days ago.  Done and dusted.  Still do not see the attachments you referenced.  Thanks.

I'm sorry!  My bad!!!  I misunderstood what you meant about the link for FB being under the link for Tweet..  It is a completely separate page.   I found it now, thanks.
