Auto Poster

The Auto Poster Plugin allows you to automatically post ads from your site into your social network profile pages, thus expanding the reach for your ads and attracting more people to your website. With the Plugin installed on your classifieds site, you will save a lot of time by not having to share each ad manually. You only have to configure it once, and after that, all of the website ads will be featured in Social Networks. Currently, the Plugin supports two major social networks: Facebook and Twitter.

How it works

Every ad that a user posts on your site is made up of fields, such as "price", "color", "year" and many others. Users fill in those fields with values that are used in the description of the ad. Much in the same way, the Auto Poster Plugin is based on fields and their values, which help form an ad description for each of the social network.

The Plugin has a post pattern for both Facebook and Twitter that you can configure in back end. To do that, you need to navigate to any of the parent category, for which you wish to customize the post pattern. By choosing what fields will be used in the post pattern and their order, you can easily adjust the ad description to your requirements and show users only the key information.

For instance, you may use fields, such as {price} {condition} and {year} if you wish them to be used in the description of a particular category and use other fields, such as {city} {address} and {state} for another category meaning that you can have custom ad descriptions for different categories according to post pattern. The Auto Poster Plugin does not simply share the ads on Facebook and Twitter, it also gives you full control over how the final ad will look like and what information will be shown to users.

Configuration and Backend settings

To start using the Plugin, the Administrator needs to create an app and an APP ID in the social networks. When you fill in all the required fields, you will get an App ID, app secret, and valid OAuth redirect URL that you will use to configure the Plugin in backend.

When you activate the Plugin for your Twitter account, your ads will automatically be posted to your Twitter profile. With Facebook, you have two posting options: the first one sends the ads to your personal profile page whereas the second posts the ads to your Facebook business page.

The Plugin settings are straightforward and simple, and to help you get the Plugin up and running, we have prepared a detailed Plugin Guide where we will walk you through every configuration step.

User benefit

With millions of active users on Facebook and Twitter, the AutoPoster Plugin will help your website reach a wider audience of Social Networks. Furthermore, users in social networks may like and share your ads, thus making them visible to even more people. Your site members will benefit from the Plugin as well because when they post ads to your site, they will automatically be featured on your Facebook and Twitter profiles where more people will see them.
