    hey,

    I’ve been trying to turn on publicize for the facebook account (www.facebook.com/acidfreepulp). I go through all of the hoops (the facebook account is set to allow wordpress through) and I even get a message on top of my wordpress saying “You have successfully connected your WordPress.com blog with your Facebook account.” But nothing. It still says disconnected from facebook which of course means no setting options to automatically publish posts. Any solutions???

    thanks.

    The blog I need help with is acidfreepulp.com.

    I’m sorry reconnecting Facebook is not working for you> http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#reconnecting-facebook

    You can use Networked Blogs http://www.networkedblogs.com/ or RSS Grafitti http://www.facebook.com/RSS.Graffiti for posting to Facebook walls if you prefer. RSS Graffiti periodically checks the RSS/Atom feeds that you specify and posts any new entries it finds to the Facebook Walls that you specify. You can get any feed written on any wall (Facebook Profiles, Fan Pages, Groups, Events and Application Profile Pages). In fact, multiple feeds to multiple walls. You choose the combination.

    I too have a problem getting my post to show on my fb page. It seems I have to manually go to my post and click on the fb widget. Is that how it works, or is it supposed to auto go there. It does show fb and twitter in my publicize options. But doesn’t seem to show unless I do the aforementioned step. ?????

    I computer illiterate mostly. I went to “Links” and put my fb address there and my ArtFire site address. I was hoping a link would show up in my posts to those two sites, but I’m not seeing anything, but I’ve not posted anything since doing that. Is this what the “Links” is for?????? Or, am I just confusing the blog site with my illiterate-ness of computing?

    Can someone help?????
    Thank you.

    Have you set up Publicize for Facebook? http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/

    #953892

    I thought so. Both fb and twitter show up there and I have checked the box to enable publicize where I type the post on the “New Post” screen.

    thanks for the additional info but I just tried networkedblogs. It’s too much trouble. I just want wordpress to allow me the publicize option. I’ve tried connecting several times but that doesn’t seem to working still. I tried different browsers, signing off/in several times. is there a way to contact them directly to let them know about this problem??

    It seems like this worked one time on a previous post because I remember it showed up twice somewhere and I wondered why. Then, I thought because I didn’t see it so I clicked on the fb widget on the published post. But, since then it doesn’t show up unless I click on the fb widget in the published post. Could I have done something inadvertently that turned it off?

    When I go to edit the post, I see the “publicize” in the right side bar. It shows fb and twitter. If I click “edit” there, both boxes are checked next to fb and twitter but they are greyed out. Does this tell you anything about what is going on?
    Thank you timethief for attempting to help!!!

    There are long standing issues that come and go with Facebook and the Publicize app. Facebook makes frequent changes and when they do this happens. I know many people who use RSS Grafitti and say they have no issues at all. Note that I have flagged this thread for Staff attention.

    I’m sorry I cannot resolve your issue.

    timethief,
    I discovered from one of your previous posts regarding support pages (thank you) and went to the “sharing” on the dashboard and see that fb and twitter are both enabled there. So it seems like there must be some issues for the tech people here perhaps. Thanks again!!

    Do we know if anyone is working on this at wordpress? It seems to be an ongoing problem.

    et al

    and since they refuse to let you contact them directly, they should at least acknowledge the glitch that is happening to many users here and work toward fixing it.

    Are you trying to publicize to a personal profile (with Friends) or a page (with Likes instead of Friends)?

    hello macmanx, it is a page–> http://www.facebook.com/acidfreepulp

    Is that a page-only account, or does the page belong to an account with a normal profile?

    Facebook has prevented us from publicizing to page-only accounts, and we have no way around that.
