A personal project especially for WordPress and Facebook enthusiast. +1 aim is to be the easiest solutions to manage and create facebook pages. By the recent updates on facebook about the discontinuation of FBML support , my previous project Simpleez deemed obsolete ( e.g dead, extinct, unusable anymore ). The Facebook guys then recommend the new era, that is using iFrame to create custom pages ( its like they’re trying to wrap the hyperspace into facebook, maybe thats just my imagination ).
So, all in all i need to create a new solution for simple facebook page creation. To giveback to the community, and to do a good deeds ( i guess that’ll sum it all ). Hence born the idea to connect WordPress Dashboard and Facebook Page. Since i strongly think that wordpress is the current most used cms, so it’ll benefit a lot of people.
Analyzing the situations there’s 2 options, creating a theme with some relevant features, or creating a WordPress Plugins. The aim is still the same, to make it as easy as possible for wordpress literate users ( and with a little basic HTML, copy & paste ) to create & manage Facebook Pages.
I’m using the first options, since its simpler ( i’m not much of a coder, php codes scares me.. seriously ). And it makes it more easier for other designer to customize the result.
The simpler the better
Yes, i’m a big fan of simplicity ! so instead of creating a new whole big overweight theme ( which will cost more time ) i create a child time. Affirmative, its easier, simpler, better. And what more to choose other than the twentyten theme, which come as default theme on the recent wordpress updates.
How its done
Here’s the screencast, showing how i create sample page using this child theme
