    Hi everyone

    This is my first post here. This forum looks great with a lotta folks who really know what they are talking about. I have been following the forum for quite sometime now, but only recently decided to start posting.

    I run a small guitar site called shredthisway, it's pretty small with a PR 2 and a 7 digit alexa rank :) Most of my traffic comes from social media, particularly facebook. So I have been spending quite some time promoting my pages in facebook.

    I have a RSS app in facebook that updates my profile, my group and my page each time I create a new post.HoweverI am looking for something that would post random post from my blog to my facebook pages. I want this to be repeated around 10 times a day.

    Has anyone tried something like this? Any suggestions?

    Are there any RSS tools out there that lets me generate an RSS out of random posts?

    Looking forward to hearing from the BHW experts :)

    Vin

    Actually I can't answer your pm as I don't have 15 posts yet.

    anyway after downloading it you should generate a xml file with one feed entry, and open it with a text editor in order to see how it's made. then you should create more entries (copy&paste job) changing date and time in order to set up one entry for each day you want to have the automatic news. it requires some time but if you use always the same news and image, once u set it, you can just replace link and image and create other feeds.

    in order to set the image you should put the image link in the description.

    in order to use it on fb you should take the php file that the software generated along with the xml and put it on your server. then on fb you can use rssgraffiti to get feed items form the php file on your server to your fna page or fb profile

    That sounds like too much work, isn't there an easier way?

    there should be. but I preferred to spend the time building the file instead of losing myself on google.
    anyway, give me your skype by pm and I'll send you an already made file with one feed per day for 365 days. you'll just have to replace links and titles (it's just a matte rof notepad).
    That's all i cna do :)
