Face Book Plugin Development 404 and 405 errors

When I was developing my first test Face Book plugin I had the following errors that annoyed me for a few hours until I figured out my mistake.

404 Error:

Error while loading page from [App name]
Received HTTP error code 404 while loading http://www.mywebserver.com/facebookapp

There are still a few kinks Facebook and the makers of test are trying to iron out. We appreciate your patience as we try to fix these issues. Your problem has been logged - if it persists, please come back in a few days. Thanks

405 Error:

Solution

I figured out that the solution for this error is simple as I used to fill in the Canvas Callback URL in facebook application page the url as: (http://www.mywebserver.com/facebookapp) while I must end the url with a forward slash to be: (http://www.mywebserver.com/facebookapp/)

After adding the last forward slash my application started working.

Publish to Wordpress using JSON API plugin and Coldfusion

I was using Postie to automatically publish to wordpress blog. I was searching a better method of publishing using soap api or json api. I found an excellent json plugin that can be used to publish posts and comments to wordpress.
Please follow the below step by step, this code will let you publish automatically for froma different interface to wordpress rather than using postie or email.

Step one: Install json plugin, enable the plugin and then go to settings > JSON API and  activate post
