Facebook Status – Email Updater for WordPress

June 26, 2010

CJEllison has now expanded into WordPress plugins!

Basically, this plugin will allow you to update your profile’s status or your fan page’s status using the secret, unique email that Facebook provides for mobile updates.

This plugin uses a post’s shortlink to update Facebook, where a large variety of services can tweet the post if needed. If you want to find a good shortlink service, my advice is the get WordPress.com Stats. It provides users of WordPress 3.0 with wp.me shortlinks, which last as long as WordPress.com is around.

I’m not a designer, creator, or engineer of Facebook or Twitter, so I can’t answer any questions about them. But feel free to Like my page or follow me on Twitter. I use this program myself to update my Facebook page, so that’s how I back my code.

You can find the plugin here.

    Hi there,

    I was wondering if the plugin could be altered to only update facebook on the initial publishing of posts rather than (as it works now) on the initial publishing AND updating of posts. Or at least make it a selectable option.
    Just Tweet That Shit (http://www.marcelpauly.de/just-tweet-that-shit/) does just this.

    Thanks for your time,
    Have a good one,

      Thanks for the info. I noticed the bug myself, and didn’t know what to do about it. Anyway, thanks for sending me the link so I can look into how it does what my plugin should do.
