Updating Facebook Auto-Post (2018)

I refuse to post original content at Facebook, or other networks. Instead, I have my websites automatically cross-post of original content from my website.

But networks regularly update their APIs or require new checks. For my personal benefit, I’ll document my effort for allowing SNAP Auto-Poster (WordPress) to submit to Facebook. First, this is the problem:

Testing …

    [Warning] => 
    [Error] => (#200) Requires either publish_actions permission, or manage_pages and publish_pages as an admin with sufficient administrative permission

Array ( [Warning] => [Error] => (#200) Requires either publish_actions permission, or manage_pages and publish_pages as an admin with sufficient administrative permission )

NextScrips documents the problem here.

What’s unclear to me is whether my “app” needs to be submitted for review to Facebook or not.

Well, there is a new link for authorizing a Facebook account, let’s try it:

Can’t Load URL: The domain of this URL isn’t included in the app’s domains. To be able to load this URL, add all domains and subdomains of your app to the App Domains field in your app settings.

Strange… I was using, which is included.

Let’s have a look through the Facebook app settings. Once thing I noticed is that I am still running on the 2.7 API. May as well update to 3.x.

I found the answer

It was a typical RTFM-Problem:

Bottom line: It’s time to update SSL (already planned), but even then it will take months for getting approval.

The most promising route seems to be IFTTT, as described here.


I am really happy with Selfhost for web hosting, but they don’t support Let’s Encrypt, at least not officially. However, they claim that with their new plans it is possible, even though it’s not officially listed. I’ll try it out and see how it goes.


Anti-Adblocker aushebeln

Wenn Dein Browser sich als GoogleBot ausweist liefern viele Anbieter erst gar keine Werbung aus…und, oh Wunder, die Seiten sind spürbar schneller 😀

Witzig. Habe das gerade mit dem FF Add-On User Agent Switcher und der Müllhalde ausprobiert, und siehe da, man bekommt das Springer’sche Verblödungsgift danntrotz aktiviertem uBlock Origin, RequestPolicy Continued und Ghostery angezeigt.

Scheint, die wollen dann doch irgendwie ‘gespidert’ werden — verlogenes, hinterfotziges Schmierenpack.

Fraglos wahr für Anforderungen: “Word considered harmful”

Netter Eintrag im HOOD Blog, Word considered harmful, Dem stimme ich zu. Allerdings:

"In einem der nächsten Blogs beschäftige ich mich daher eingehender mit Word Importen und der strukturierten Ablage von Anforderungen"

Damit ist es leider nicht getan, da dann mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit das neue Werkzeug "wie Word" genutzt werden wird. Wenn das neue Werkzeug methodisch nicht korrekt eingesetzt wird, hätte man auch bei Word bleiben können. Solange der Werkzeugwechsel nur der erste Schritt zu besserem RE ist und von weiteren Schritten gefolgt wird, stimmte ich zu.

Eclipse Process Framework (EPF) on Linux 64 bit

This question has been discussed over and over again: How to run the Eclipse Process Framework on Linux 64 bit? The good news: I found a solution. The bad news: It’s not free, it involves CrossOver Linux for €48, which I am more than happy to pay. You can download the 2-week-trial to see whether it works for you.

Here are the step-by-step instructions:

  • Download and install CrossOver
  • Add a new Bottle of Type Windows XP (others may work, too).
  • Right-click and select "Install Software into Bottle"
  • Find and select"Java7" (it works for me, even though it states that it does not)
  • Important: Also install Internet Explorer 8. Without this, it will crash as soon as you try to use Rich Text
  • Download EPF for Windows (I tried, which works)
  • Open C: (right-click "Open C: Drive") and extract EPF to a location of your choice (I leave it in C:).
  • Test the installation from the Linux File Browser. Important: Don’t double-click, instead right-click and select "Open With… | CrossOver (Run)". Make sure that you load/create and open an element with rich text, e.g. a Role. If the browser is not correctly installed, then EPF will crash.
  • Create a Linux launcher, now that everything works. I usually create a .desktop file in .local/share/applications. The launcher command line is:
  • /opt/cxoffice/bin/wine –bottle #BOTTLE_NAME# –cx-app "C:\epf-composer\epf.exe" -data "Y:\epf-workspace"
  • The -data argument is optional, I use it to set the workspace to the location of my liking. Y: is mapped to the Linux user home, so adjust the path as you see fit.

I hope you find these instructions useful. Please let me know if things can be improved!
