With Uncanny Automator, connecting your WordPress site to Facebook 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.

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 1,000 free 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.

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:

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:

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.
