This site is powered by Drupal for Facebook.
The page you see here is also visible in a facebook application.
Is there a way to make things like forum posts such as this one show up in my feed? Or do we have to write those hooks ourselves?
No update in this post for more than a year.
I have been trying to figure out how to post stories to the facebook wall automatically when using forums or blogs, but i've hit a dead end.
Actions and triggers is not an option, since action doesn't work for drupal 6.
How do you do this? Can anybody give step-by-step directions? Or at least some documentation.
Thanks a lot.
(the "Share on Facebook" checkbox would be perfect)

Now I just have to find out how to customize the feed story text so that I can incorporate context-specific messages that are more meaningful.
You have two options.
This site uses drupal actions. Drupal for Facebook provides an action to write mini-feed messages. And actions can be triggered by various things, like the creation of a node. But the triggers are somewhat limited (right now) for example there is no node-type-specific trigger.
The other option is to access the $fb object in your custom module. This gives you everything the facebook API provides. So you can add whatever logic you like.
I have some improvements to the mini-feed code pending. The newer way is to use templatized messages. I don't think I've checked in an action for that yet.
I've been trying to figure out how to have my posts display on my friends' news feeds as well, like other mini-feed updates. I've been looking through the documentation on drupal for facebook and on facebook developer, and I haven't been able to find anything that helps to point me in the right direction. If you have been able to do this and have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!
Yes. Facebook does this. Apps can't control exactly which items get posted to which friends' feeds.
