linking my blog to Facebook page

Travel Forums System Talk linking my blog to Facebook page

Please help. I want to link my blog posts to my FB page. I have check the box to link our blog to Facebook, but it does not appear there.

Can you provide any further information on what you see? Has it worked for you previously and suddenly stopped working? Does the check remain after you refresh the page? Does it still say 'Connected to Facebook' above the check box? Is there any prompt to reauthorize Travellerspoint to post to your Facebook account?

HI, Kellie,
Thank you for your quick response. I answered your email through email- duh. Couldn't understand why I did not get a response- oh, well.
Yes, the blog I created during a trip last year did connect to FB. For the blog we are starting for a trip this year I have ticked the “connect to FB” box and it says it is connected. But it does not show up. There is no prompt. Just to get the url out there I pasted it into a share box on FB but I would rather have the posts appear as we create them.

Hi Ruth,
So once you have checked the box next to "Publish this blog Tick this to automatically share new entries to Facebook" does the tick stay there when you refresh the page? Also, what browser are you using?

Yes,it remains ticked. I use choke, but it works the same with Firefox.

Oops. Make that Chrome! Not choke!

Hi Ruth,
In that case, I can't see anything from here that would prevent it from working. Have you tried posting since then to see if the issue remains?

Hi, Kellie. I just posted a test from my home PC and the link on FB did work! It remains to be seen whether it will work when we post through email. Hope so! Thanks for your help. Merry Christmas!

Hi Ruth,
That's great to hear.
Yes, it should update fairly soon after sending the email. I update my photo blog via email from my phone and it posts on Facebook within about 10 secs.
And Merry Christmas to you. Hope you have a great trip!
