RSS/Blog Button in Facebook Page
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?

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/

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

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

Re: RSS/Blog Button in Facebook Page
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.

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/
 
YaBB install help video
1. what yabb forum are you running and the url
2. describe in as much detail as you can what happens and also post screenshots if you can
3. please be patient we live in different time zones and have other commitments but we will help you
as bill and ted say (Be excellent to each other)

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.

Re: RSS/Blog Button in Facebook Page
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.
