Why aren’t my feeds being published?

There are a few reasons your posts might not be publishing.

RSS Graffiti does not check your feed immediately after setting up a new feed source. The frequency with which we check your feed depends on the level of system traffic.

Are there new posts eligible for publishing? RSS Graffiti will not go back and publish old posts unless you explicitly change the cut-off date/time in the advanced tab of the source settings window.

Make sure your feed is a valid RSS or Atom document. Each item in your feed must include an element containing a valid datestamp as well as an element containing a valid http:// URL. You can validate your feeds here.

If you still can’t figure out why your feeds are failing to publish, ask a question in our Community Support Forum.

Blog not posting to Facebook

  1. Blog not posting to facebook. I’ve gone through the process of disconnecting, removing the Facebook app, and reconnecting, but it’s still not auto-posting to my fanpage. Is there anything else you would recommend to get this to work?

  2. I’m having the same problem. Worked a couple of times when I first set it up, hasn’t worked since.

  3. Aside from reconnecting I have no solutions to offer you.

    I can suggest two alternatives. You can use Networked Blogs or RSS Grafitti posting to Facebook walls if you prefer. RSS Graffiti periodically checks the RSS/Atom feeds that you specify and posts any new entries it finds to the Facebook Walls that you specify. You can get any feed written on any wall (Facebook Profiles, Fan Pages, Groups, Events and Application Profile Pages). In fact, multiple feeds to multiple walls. You choose the combination.

Facebook Obsoletes Less Than Year-Old Facebook Application Development For Dummies Book!

Facebook Obsoletes Less Than Year-Old Facebook Application Development For Dummies Book!


Just a quick rant here.  In what must be some kind of record, Facebook has pretty much made obsolete the book Facebook Application Development For Dummies (Wiley, by Jesse Stay), which I purchased about 7 months ago (August 2011 — only 3 months after it was released!).

Most of my other programming books (mostly O’Reilly, Head First, Head Rush, etc.) are good for at least 5 years before they are useless.  But in this case, Facebook has redesigned their developer portal so much that where once there was a canvas page and canvas url, now only the canvas url is present.  Not only that, when you hover over secure canvas url it says that a secure canvas url is required by October 2011 (Oops! — That deadline has passed).

Such is the developer’s roadmap of progress.  I want to look at this with an open mind, and as such I’ll take this as an opportunity to look for more recent online Facebook Application Development tutorials.  I found one on Facebook’s developer site here.  I’ll try to follow that but right now my ass hurts from hemorrhoids and sitting in an uncomfortable chair too long (an upcoming article will aggregate reviews of several task chairs, ergo and otherwise — WATCH FOR IT!) so I’m retiring for the moment.

Until next time …

Here’s an interesting article from Kevin Drum over at that may motivate some users of Facebook and other Social Network apps to monitor their security & privacy settings more closely:
