Facebook Pages

With Uncanny Automator, connecting your WordPress site to Facebook Pages has never been easier.  Automatically push new posts from your WordPress blog to your Facebook page, or post links and photos to your page when admins or even regular users perform specific actions on your website.

Connect your site or activate your Pro license

If you have the free version of Uncanny Automator, you’ll first need to connect your site with a free Uncanny Automator account, which will give you 250 free app credits to use with Facebook.  If you have Uncanny Automator Pro, simply activate your Pro license key to get unlimited usage of the Facebook integration.

Connect Uncanny Automator to your Facebook account

Once you’ve connected your free account or activated your Pro license key, return to the recipe page and click on the Facebook icon.

You should see a dialog appear with a link to connect your Facebook account to Uncanny Automator.

Click Connect account, which opens the Facebook settings page in a new window, then click Connect Facebook Pages.

This launches into the process of connecting your Facebook account with our Uncanny Automator Facebook app, which is what enables Uncanny Automator to post updates to your Facebook page.  Here are the screens you’ll see:

Connect your Instagram Business account (optional)

If you have an Instagram Business account connected to your Facebook account, you may see this page next.  If you want Uncanny Automator to post to your Instagram Business account, select the account on this screen:

Select which Facebook Pages to automatically post updates to from your WordPress site

In this step, choose which pages you want Uncanny Automator to be able to post updates to:

These are the permissions Uncanny Automator requires to post to your Facebook Page (and/or Instagram Business account).  If you turn off any of these permissions, Uncanny Automator may not work correctly.

Clicking OK on the last screen brings you back to your site, where you can view info about the connected account:

After closing that window, your recipe page will reload and you can now add the desired Facebook action to your recipe:

That’s it!  You can now automatically add posts, images or links to your Facebook page when new posts are published to your WordPress site, or even when new pages, courses, products, etc. are created.  You could even post updates when when users complete milestones on your site as a way to celebrate their successes…the possibilities are endless.

Disconnecting your Facebook Account

If you decide you no longer want to use the Uncanny Automator Facebook Pages integration, you can disconnect your site by going to Automator > Settings > App integrations > Facebook Pages > Disconnect.

Note that this disconnects your current site, but does not remove the Uncanny Automator app from your Facebook account to avoid disrupting recipes if you are using the Uncanny Automator Facebook integration on another site. If you want to remove the Uncanny Automator Facebook app from your account, follow these steps:

  1. On Facebook, go to Settings & privacy > Settings
  2. Click Business integrations.
  3. Find Uncanny Automator and click Remove.
