Publish on Facebook Wall Using JSON (FB application using Coldfusion)

To develop a success Facebook application and make your application popular you need to enable a story publishing on the wall of the members who uses your application.

To do so in coldfusion what you have to do is to follow the tutorials by Gavin Vincent (Using json and the Feed Preview Console)

In the tutorial by Gavin, to publish the story on your wall you have the member must publish the story by pressing on the publish story button, but how can you enforce members to publish the story to make your application more popular?

It is so simple to do so, but how?

First of all make your application, the form and the action, in the action page don't publish your application result, ask the user to press on a continue button, this button is the feedstory form, then when the user gets the JSON publish story popup window and press on publish he will be able to see the result, see the following code:

<cfset json = '{"content":
{"feed":
{"template_id":"#template_bundle_id#",
"template_data":{"answers":"Your heart is Young and Shiny",
"images":[{"src":"#url.photo#", "href":"http://apps.facebook.com/footprintsm/"}]}},"next":"http://apps.facebook.com/footprintsm/heartAction.cfm"},"method":"feedStory"}' />
#json#


The only difference between this implementation and the one you saw in the tutorial by cavin is (,"next":"http://apps.facebook.com/footprintsm/heartAction.cfm") so this code will take to the result page after publishing your story.

If you have any question don't haistate to comment.

Publish to Wordpress using JSON API plugin and Coldfusion

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

Step two: you have to modify the file: yourwordpressdirectory/wp-content/plugins/json-api/controllers/post.php

Please replace the file content with the below or add the missing Authenticate method. This method is necessary to authenticate a user to wordpress to be able to post content without a valid session.


<?php /* Controller name: Posts Controller description: Data manipulation methods for posts */ classJSON_API_Posts_Controller{ publicfunctioncreate_post(){ global$json_api; $this->authenticate()…
