XING has recently decided to discontinue its official free API.


Today we are introducing the better alternative – new NextScripts Premium API for XING. Unlike the API from XING that was able to make posts to profiles only, NextScripts Premium API for XING can post to profiles, company pages, and groups.


All current API subscribers are getting it for free today. SNAP WordPress Pro plugin users can use it starting from version 3.7.16 (API 2.27.0). SNAP Pro API and SNAP Light API users should download package version 28 (API 2.27.0)



nextscripts: (Default)

New beta version is available for download. Two most popular networks Facebook and LinkedIn just got a completely new configuration interfaces.


You can get new version from here: SNAP for WordPress Version 3.7.10.Beta

Just upload it to your plugins directory replacing current files or delete your current SNAP version install it from WP Admin. (That will not delete or anyhow affect your currently configured networks and settings).

Since it’s a beta version, please make a backup before upgrading and please report any issues right away.



1. Facebook.


No more entering Facebook URLs and figuring out your Facebook groups IDs. No more coming back to finish configuration. Please enter your key and secret and click “Authorize”. Then just choose your profile, page or group from the dropdown list.



Facebook also finally dropped obsolete “Attached link” style in favor of “Shared link”, so less complication there as well.


2. LinkedIn.


LinkedIn got more options and features. Premium NextScripts API got support for rich text “Pulse” posts. Support for new built-in LinkedIn v2 API also has been added. LinkedIn v2 API allows posts to company pages, so free plugin users can do that now.

LinkedIn also got the same brand new interface as Facebook. You can just enter your key and secret or username and password and select your profile, page or group from the dropdown list.

SNAP for WordPress Version 3.7 has been released. This version adds support for two new networks.


1. Weibo. Biggest Chinese Microblogging Service. You can post your messages and images.

Version 3.7 also has cleaner and less cluttered interface for both settings and “new post” page, new “Post to all checked networks” button on the published post page, new categorized list of networks on the “Add New Network” page.


You can install it directly from your WP Admin panel, download it from NextScripts or from WordPress.org

Instagram Autoposting is coming to SNAP!


3 years ago we wrote an article explaining why Instagram was not supported. Instagram was accepting images only from the phones and other mobile devices and there was no way to post there from the website or API. Since then we were considering creating our own API for Instagram. Well, today we are announcing it.


NextScripts API for Instagram will be available for all active API subscribers Friday March 5, 2016 as part of the Universal API.


More info as well as demo is here: SNAP: Autoposting to Instagram

Today we are announcing SNAP for WordPress Version 3.5. It will be released on Friday, March 4, 2016. This version is a result of our decision to change our release strategy. We are still working on completely new and totally re-written version 4. That version will be a major release and it already took a lot of time to develop. We realized that while we are sitting on some cool features that were made for upcoming V4, version 3.4 already got 32 almost featureless releases. We are sitting on them for too long. Some of those features require brand new V4 platform and engine, but some of them can be easily ported to V3 and work along with the old code.


So we decided to make several smaller releases instead of keep people waiting for one big.


We are starting with version 3.5 that got new API connection engine. New engine comes with highly optimized, smaller and faster V4 API connector files. We created a way for new API connection engine to seamlessly work with the old one.


v35-two-engins


Version 3.5 has three networks based on this new V4 API connection engine:

Telegram [New] (Free and Pro),

Instagram [New] (active “SNAP API” subscription members only),

XING [Updated] (Free and Pro).


Eventually all networks will be ported to new V4 API connection engine. Very soon we will make couple more V3 releases with new interface, features and networks and then, once we finish new autoposting engine, we will switch it on and call that release V4. That’s the plan.


PS: We apologize to all people who are waiting for the new “existing posts re-posting” functionality. This feature actually requires new V4 posting engine and will be available only in actual V4.

Version 4 is coming out soon. One of the new features is “Filters” – an ability to define exactly what posts should go to each configured networks.


website-sc-028



Current version allows so filter all posts by categories and custom post types and additionally filter each network by categories and tags.

All this will be replaced by the universal filters that will allow to set all possible criteria for specifying the exact posts that should be autoposted both in general and per each network.

Version 4 is coming out soon. One of the most important new features is a completely redone auto-reposting.


Auto-reposting in version 3 was done as on/off switch per network and separate include/exclude property per each post. It was very complicated and some reposting scenarios that were not possible or very hard to setup:


- Repeat one particular tweet each day at 9AM

– Auto-Repost only posts from specific categories or tags

– Auto-Repost only posts written by specific author.

– Auto-Repost only “Image” format posts, not “Link” or “Standard”.

– Auto-Repost some specific posts from 9AM to 11AM and some different posts from 6PM to 9PM


Version 4 will use Reposter Actions. Each Reposter Action can be configured individually and you can setup what posts should be posted to what networks and when should it happen.


V4 Reposter



Reposter Action has 4 configurable sections


1. You can Activate/Deactivate the Reposter and set ho to get your posts – One-by-one or Randomly.


V4 Reposter


2. You can choose what networks this Reposter should post to.

3. You can set how often to posts as well as what time it should start and stop.

First off all we need to apologize to all the people who lost “Pro” features or got “Incorrect Activation Key” error during the last 8 hours.


Last night our server got corrupted in a bad way. What happened is when plugin checked for a version upgrade instead of “No/Here is a New Version” response server was returning a corrupted page. Plugin assumed it’s a new version – “Pro” functionality got corrupted. The same happened to the new “Pro” activation requests. Instead of “Pro” features server returned some corrupted page causing “Incorrect Activation Key” errors.


It’s all fixed now. Please re-enter your activation key and “Pro” will be back.


More then that, we made sure that this will never happened again. Please update “NextScripts: SNAP Pro Upgrade Helper” plugin to the latest version 1.3 that we just released. It should be available in your WP Admin -> Dashboards -> Updates section or you can get it from http://www.nextscripts.com/mypage

SNAP for WordPress Version 3.3.0 has been released. This version adds support for Flipboard Magazines (Pro Only) and a lot of improvements.


One important improvement is rewritten Facebook API access.

When we started this project as “Facebook-Twitter-Google+ Autoposter” we took official Facebook PHP API library and used it. Two years and 21 networks after that we actually asked a question why exactly we are still using those 47kbs of code. We can do much better then that. We have enough knowledge and experience to use Facebook API directly, without some “middle man”. As a result we got much faster and more reliable Facebook autoposter engine.


Another important change is disabling Auto-Reposter if WP Cron service is not correctly configured. This should save a lot of frustration and prevent many issues.


= 3.3.0 [03/06/2014] =


* New – New network “Flipboard”. Post your links to your magazine.

* Improvement – A lot of code, error handling and interface optimizations and improvements.

* Improvement – Plugin is not using 47kb of official Facebook API for PHP anymore. Facabook autoposting is now more stable and faster.

* Improvement – Auto-Reposting functionality will be disabled if WP Cron is not configured correctly.

* Improvement – Plugin shows how many posts is included in auto-reposting on the settings page.

* Bug Fix – Many bug fixes and improvements to the “Auto-Reposting” and “Posts from Query” functionality.

* Bug Fix – Checkboxes with selected categories were not saving correctly.

* Bug Fix – Google+ – custom URL postings were incorrect.

* Bug Fix – Tumblr is now working “New Post to Social Networks”

“Existing posts auto-reposter” functionality will be disabled if WP Cron is not configured correctly.


It’s been more then three months since we released SNAP for WordPress Version 3.0 with “Existing posts auto-reposter” functionality. It was one of the most requested features and a lot of people are enjoying it. However this feature brought a lot of troubles to us. The problem is that this feature could work properly only with correctly configured (healthy) WP Cron. It turned out that a lot of people have no idea what is “WP Cron”, how does it work, and why it’s important to keep it healthy. Combination of unhealthy WP Cron and “Existing posts auto-reposter” feature could cause: no auto-repostings, no auto-postings, many duplicate postings and repostings, site crashes, 500 Internal server errors, etc.. and of course we are getting the blame for all those problems.


We don’t feel that we deserve all those bad reviews and being called “Unhelpful Support” simply because we don’t have technical capabilities to spend hours on each website debugging WP Cron. WP Cron is a part of WordPress itself and its absolutely not related to our products. Healthy WP Cron is a requirement for “Existing posts auto-reposter” functionality and SNAP for WordPress Version 3.3 will check and disable this feature if it detects that WP Cron is not configured the way it should be.


Please go to the “Help/Support” tab and click “Show Cron Test Results” to see how your WP Cron is doing.


We have a very good tutorial about correct configuration of WP Cron: WP-Cron: Scheduling Tasks in WordPress


Once the WP Cron is configured correctly, please go to the Help/Support tab again and click “Show Cron Test Results” and then click “Re-do Cron Check”.


“Existing posts auto-reposter” functionality will be reactivated after successful test.

cron-health-002


We are really sorry, but we can’t offer troubleshooting services for WP Cron as part of our support for SNAP plugin. This is a server administration issue, so please work with your server admin or hosting provider if you need help setting it up correctly.
