WordPress to Facebook using If This Then That
A short while back I walked readers through how to easily publish from WordPress to Facebook using RSS Graffiti.
Once you have an account at If This then That set up, then click on Tasks, then Create Task.
If This then That does a lot of color coding; so click on the underlined, blue This link.
Then for your trigger channel, click on RSS Feed.
Then click on New Feed Item.
And put in the web page address of your WordPress blog. For WordPress, my experience is that “feed” is a part of the URL.
Then click on the underlined, blue, That
Now if you want to target your Facebook Fan page, then click on Facebook page (if you’ve not set up a channel connecting Facebook, you’ll be prompted to do so).
From here you can experiment as to what works best for you; in my opinion the create status message gives you the cleaner publish on Facebook.
From here you can either accept the default, or click on Addins to modify what is used as part of the Status message. You can also adjust the formatting and text so long as you don’t change the variable spelling / names.
Then to finish up, give your task a unique, meaningful description, and you are ready to go.
Once your task is set up, you can “Inspect” your task to run it manually.
