ColdFusion 9.0.1 Windows Server 2008 R2 Hi. I know this has been discussed before, but I can't locate a working solution. Has anybody been able to get ColdFusion to read and parse JSON output from a Facebook Wall Feed, and then display that wall feed on a ColdFusion page? I know that I need to get an AppID, App Secret, and Access Token from Facebook. I've done that. I have downloaded and begun to explore this SDK: http://facebooksdk.riaforge.org/ But I am wondering if anyone else has tackled this problem. Thank you for any ideas or leads. Eric

I haven't checked in awhile, but the wall is off limits. There are however other Social Options you can look at. https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/ -- Regards, Andrew Scott WebSite: http://www.andyscott.id.au/ Google+: http://plus.google.com/108193156965451149543 ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more -----

Hi, Andrew and John, Thank you for these comments. I haev set up the Affinitiz SDK here: http://www.coalcountryteam.org/affinitiz-facebook-cf-sdk-29462bd/ If you click on the example (Example link, in upper left part of page), you will see that I get an error that an API is missing. Error Occurred While Processing Request Could not find the ColdFusion component or interface facebook.sdk.FacebookGraphAPI. Ensure that the name is correct and that the component or interface exists. The error occurred in C:/websites/www.coalcountryteam.org/affinitiz-facebook-cf-sdk-29462bd/examples/website/index.cfm: line 28 26 : SCOPE = "publish_stream"; 27 : 28 : if (APP_ID is "" or SECRET_KEY is "") { 29 :   // App not configured 30 :   facebookGraphAPI = new FacebookGraphAPI(); Odd, to get this error right out of the box. I am going to keep playing with this. Andrew, also, the https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/ might be useful; I had seen that page, but I was not sure that it has what I need. I will review more closely. (Yes, obviously, I am rushing through this task. Sorry. I need to slow down and read everything.) =) Do you have any idea about the missing facebook.sdk.FacebookGraphAPI? Thank you again. Eric ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more -----

Looks like you didn't import that, as you are not using its full path. -- Regards, Andrew Scott WebSite: http://www.andyscott.id.au/ Google+: http://plus.google.com/108193156965451149543 ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more -----

Yes. I saw that. Hmmm. I have been reading up on the SDK documentation: https://github.com/affinitiz/facebook-cf-sdk/wiki/Installation it looks like installation is as simple as copying over the unzipped folder to the root of the web site, which I have done. It looks like I need to create a mapping to the CFC files in the /sdk/ folder. I will work on that. Also, Andrew, I appreciate your  "ramblings" on your http://www.andyscott.id.au/ blog. =) Eric Looks like you didn't import that, as you are not using its full path. -- Regards, Andrew Scott WebSite: http://www.andyscott.id.au/ Google+: http://plus.google.com/108193156965451149543 ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more ----- exists. > > The error occurred in C:/websites/ > www.coalcountryteam.org/affinitiz-facebook-cf-sdk-29462bd/examples/website/i ndex.cfm: ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more ----- I ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more ----- however ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more -----

Hmm. I got it working. Kind of: http://www.coalcountryteam.org/affinitiz-facebook-cf-sdk-29462bd/examples/we bsite/ I figured out the mapping and I fixed a syntax error in one of the CFCs. I don't think this tool is going to do what I need, though. I just need to post public FB wall information on a page. I think the Activity Feed FB plugin might be the answer: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/activity/ I'll try that next. Thank you again for your ideas. Eric

This SDK can, as it uses the same methods as the API's covered. The thing is that you need to know how to do it. https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/api/ Shows everything that you can do, what you can get back how to post etc. You then use this SDK to then make that connection and take care of any results that may or may not come back. So depending on your requirements, you can use the Social Graph to post to your facebook page, that will automatically get seen by people who have either liked / subscribed to the page. If what you are saying is what you need then you will need to look at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/api/post/ and then use the SDK to achieve this for you. -- Regards, Andrew Scott WebSite: http://www.andyscott.id.au/ Google+: http://plus.google.com/108193156965451149543 ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more -----

Hi, Andrew, I've been studying the Facebook Developers' Documentation for most of the weekend. I have also been doing a lot of researching and testing. I have been able to create a test Facebook Application ("App"), and obtain the App ID, App Secret, and an App access token. I have also figured out that the Facebook "Graph" is just the FB database. =) That metaphor had me confused for a while because I was looking around for an actual graph. Yes, I can be literal minded, especially when I need a procedure to complete a task, and am feeling tense and vulnerable about not having completed it. >>> So depending on your requirements, you can use the Social Graph to post to your facebook page, that will automatically get seen by people who have either liked / subscribed to the page. Actually, I need to achieve the reverse; I need to post the activity feed, or the status updates of a particular Facebook page to a particular web site. The ColdFusion Facebook SDK seems to want to allow me to post posts to a Facebook page, but does not allow me to extract the activity feed -- at least, that is what I think. Of course I could be missing something. >>> The thing is that you need to know how to do it. I agree 100% and I'm continuing to work on this task. I'm continuing to study the Facebook documentation. Thank you again for your ideas and support. Have a great evening. Eric This SDK can, as it uses the same methods as the API's covered.

Ok I think FaceBookGraph is a bit confusing, but having said that so is the docs at times. Well if you need the reverse then the activity or news feed is maybe what your looking for, but wall posts are out of the question. You can use the SDK to read the news, I have never done it mysefl, but if you look at all the objects news is one of them. -- Regards, Andrew Scott WebSite: http://www.andyscott.id.au/ Google+: http://plus.google.com/108193156965451149543 ----- Excess quoted text cut - see Original Post for more -----

I made a website for my brothers band, www.mastercab.be, and I'm connecting to there Facebook page to get the wall posts they made and display them on there website. You'll need to create a Facebook app to get an access_token, but I believe you've already done that. Below a link to the code I'm using to connect to Facebook and display the posts. You'll have to add your page name and access_token at the beginning of the file. https://gist.github.com/e84459d04cc78ad47781 Kind regards, Guust Nieuwenhuis Adobe Community Professional Mobile: +32 497 33 04 91 Skype: guustnieuwenhuis Email: info@lagaffe.be Ok I think FaceBookGraph is a bit confusing, but having said that so is the docs at times.
