    Hi

    In your latest WordPress news blog post, you say “You are now able to connect to as many accounts at each service as you like.”

    However, I still cannot publish to both my Facebook Profile and my Facebook Page.

    Please help.

    Cheers
    Mihir

    The blog I need help with is mitaroygoahotel.com.

    Does this guide help? Facebook Profiles & Pages
    On the Settings -> Sharing page click Add new Facebook Connection.
    A message will appear asking you to authorize the connection between your WordPress.com blog and your Facebook account. http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#facebook-profiles-pages

    Thanks timethief!

    I tried this but it only allows me to post to EITHER Profile OR Page, not both :(

    I tagged this for Moderator Support (tag “modlook”). Is that the right tag ?

    Cheers

    Alternatively you can use 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.

    Thanks timethief!

    Its strange though that WordPress News blogged about the possibility to add more than one Facebook connection, yet it doesnt seem to work.

    How can I mark this for a moderator to check ?

    Pls help

    Cheers

    Try reconnecting Publicize following the complete procedure at http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#reconnecting-facebook

    Nope macmanx. Its not working.

    I dont understand why its not working for me, especially after the blog post on WordPress.com said that its now possible.

    Pls help.

    Try flushing your FB cache but disconnect from FB first http://umairj.com/146/how-to-clear-facebook-shares-cache/
    Then try the full reconnect procedure again detailed at http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#reconnecting-facebook including step 3 (removing the FB app), which is probably the most important step.

    On the Facebook page, is your personal profile an administrator of the page, or is it a separate page-only account?

    #1083468

    @timethief I did the entire process but it still didnt help :(

    @macmanx My personal profile is the administrator of the page. Dunno why its not working…

    Would you please take a screenshot of the Facebook page when logged in and upload it via Media -> Add New in your blog’s Dashboard?

    Believe it or not, that might actually tell us what’s going on here.

    Done. Its called Unbennant. PNG

    I can either click on Personal Profile OR on one of the pages but not both…

    No, not that, I mean a screenshot of the actual Facebook page when you’re logged in.

    #1083485

    Done. Its called FB Screenshot.

    That appears to be a Page-Only Account.

    Do you have a separate Facebook Profile (with a timeline, friends, etc)? If so, you need to grant that Profile admin rights to the Page.

    I dont understand. I took a screenshot of the Facebook page where I am posting as the page.

    Do you want a screenshot of my Page when I am posting as a person ??

    Sure, try that. The screenshot made it rather apparent that it was a Page-Only account, but let’s one where you’re logged in as the Profile, not the Page.

    #1083497

    Done. Its called FB Profile.

    Yes, that should definitely work.

    Try reconnecting one more time, but make absolutely sure that you’re logged in to that Facebook Profile, not the Page-only Account.
