Connecting WordPress to Facebook using Pabbly Connect:

Since Pabbly Connect allows automating workflows between various apps, connecting WordPress to Facebook depends on the specific action you want to achieve. Here are two popular options:

1. Automatically share new WordPress posts to Facebook:

  1. Create a workflow in Pabbly Connect: Start by creating a new workflow and naming it appropriately.
  2. Choose WordPress as the Trigger app: Select “WordPress” as the trigger app and choose the relevant action. The most common options here are “New Post Published” or “New Page Published.”
  3. Connect your WordPress site: Click on “Connect” and authenticate Pabbly Connect with your WordPress site using the WordPress API credentials. You can find these credentials under your WordPress site’s “Settings” -> “WP API.”
  4. Configure the trigger settings: Choose the specific criteria for triggering the workflow, such as specific post categories, tags, or authors.
  5. Choose Facebook Pages as the Action app: Now, select “Facebook Pages” as the action app and pick the desired action. Popular choices include “Create Page Post” or “Update Page Status.”
  6. Connect your Facebook Page: Click on “Connect” and authenticate Pabbly Connect with your desired Facebook Page. Ensure you have admin access to the Page.
  7. Configure the action settings: Craft the content for your Facebook post, including title, description, image, and link. You can use dynamic data from your WordPress post using placeholders like {{post_title}} or {{post_url}}.
  8. Test and save the workflow: Once everything is set, run a test to ensure it works as expected. Finally, save and enable the workflow.

  4. Filter posts (optional): You can optionally refine the trigger by setting specific criteria for the Facebook posts it reacts to, such as specific tags, keywords, or groups.
  5. Choose Embed.ly as the Action app: As the action, select “Embed.ly” to easily create embeddable content from various sources.
  6. Configure the action settings: Paste the URL of the Facebook post you want to embed. Embed.ly will automatically fetch and format the content for your website.
  7. Choose WordPress as the final Action app: Add another action step and choose “WordPress” as the app. Select “Create Post” or “Create Page” as the final action.
  8. Configure WordPress action settings: Craft the content for your WordPress post or page, where you’ll use the embed code generated by Embed.ly in the previous step.
  9. Test and save the workflow: Run a test and save the workflow once everything is configured correctly.
