I don't understand this facebook frenzy.

Facebook is going to die soon as people will eventually realize it serves no purpose!

It's not like google or amazon, they provide a real service but facebook?

Creating a network of people you used to know ... do you really need it?

If you really cared about those people you would have kept in touch with them in the first place.

Tom

if you want I can do the update for you how that will work is you pm me ftp login info for your site and admin info for your forum then I will upload YaBB 2.5.2 to cgi-bin/yabb2/ do the update for you then you check the updated forum and if you are happy with that then I can move that to where the old forum is or you can keep it where it is and update all links to it.

I swear Facebook makes things deliberately hard to do things like this.  Angry I'll get back as soon as I actually find the instructions on Facebook.

Edited:
The app is RSSgraffiti but since Facebook changed things around, good luck on finding it in the apps.  Angry it should be here: https://apps.facebook.com/rssgraffiti/

the RSS graffiti app page is here
https://www.facebook.com/RSS.Graffiti?ref=ts&fref=ts
as this is what I use to post RSS feeds to my time line and also to some pages as well

I probably shouldn't ask, because I will surely mess things up, but is it easy to upgrade to a version with RSS, and what version might that be, please?

Thank you guys for the answers.

Tom

Hi Tom upgrading is not all that hard see Upgrading from YaBB 1.x
download yabb 2.5.2 from this link http://yabb.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/yabb/branches/2.5.2/ and click on Download GNU tarball to start the download you will also need a tool like 7-zip to unpack it to your computer link to that is http://www.7-zip.org/

Yeah, you can't do an RSS feed to Facebook if you don't have an RSS feed.  Roll Eyes
  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

There's no RSS feature in SP 1.32, so won't be doable in that version I'm afraid.

I have a YaBB located here: http://oceanpointcolonytrust.org/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?board=M.M.Purpose. How do I get a RSS/Blog button, such as the one you have here https://www.facebook.com/YaBBForum, so that my YaBB posts can appear on this FB Page: https://www.facebook.com/OceanPointColonyTrust?
