Description

Tagregator already has sources for several popular social media sites, but doesn't have Facebook yet.

First I've heard of Tagregator. Is this a core-supported plugin, like the importers?

Yeah, it's a similar situation to CampTix, where we built it for WordCamp.org but released it in the plugin repo b/c the functionality is generic enough to be useful to others. I monitor the support forums for it and reply to them.

@Prateek312 - Is it possible to push specific #hashtag content from my Facebook Fan Page?

Basically, what I want to do is the following: Through an external website, post a photo with a certain #hashtag in my Facebook Fan Page and then display (in the external website) ONLY the posts with this specific #hashtag. Basically we need Tagregator that also pushes Facebook #hashtag content.

Thank you in advance for your help.

PS: I have downloaded your attachment, but I would like your input on this.

Thanks @prateek312.

I manually diffed the zip contents against trunk to create 400.diff. In the future, it'd be much better to submit patches that contain only the modifications, rather than the full plugin.

For help generating patches, see Core's guide for using SVN, or the Meta guide for using Git.

It looks like the Facebook module was copied from the Google+ module, but it only contains some of the changes necessary to implement a solution. The Facebook post type was created fine, but it doesn't actually interact with Facebook's API to pull in Facebook content, and there are several artifacts from the Google+ module that should be removed or changed.

It sounds like Facebook has removed the ability to search their API for posts via a hashtag, so that's probably no longer possible anyway.

If they add that ability back in the future, this can be reopened.
