Facebook autopost is not working well after Joomla to 3.8.1 with SSL

Facebook autopost is not working well after Joomla to 3.8.1 with SSL

Dear Team,
I have a problem with content publish on facebook. It means sometimes it works when I unpublish and re-publish contents but it doesn't work after publish joomla content.
Current versions:
Joomla 3.8.2 + SSL (Let's Encrypt)
JFBConnect 7.2.2
PHP 5.6.26-74.0-56
MySql 5.6.26-74.0-56

Do you have any idea how I can fix this issue? I couldn't deal with it in the last 2 weeks. I autotuned JFBConnect many times, didn't help. It worked well till Joomla 3.7.5.
I switched some times this switc too: Disable SSL Certificate Validation It didn't help too.

Can you explain further about what you are attempting to do and what isn't working? Are you using a Channel to autopost content to Facebook? If so, is it going to a Page, Group or Profile?

If you unpublish content and the re-publish, it does work?

I'm just trying to understand the issue as much as I can. Any details you can provide will really help.

Thanks,
Alex

Re: Facebook autopost is not working well after Joomla to 3.8.1 with SSL

Yes, it's correct. I would like to autopost joomla contents from specific categories to Facebook as page.
These are timed contents. I have tried with direct publish immediately but didn't work as well. When I unpublish and re-publish then it works 100%. I needed to do this by immediate publish of the content as well. So maybe not the timed content is the problem.

This problem was not before 3.8 as I think but maybe somehow it connects to SSL. We use SSL for a while so hopefully not this is the case. I can give access in private message. I have checked Facebook API, it seems to perfect.

Thanks for the description. We're trying to recreate on our development systems, which will help narrow down and help fix the issue. We should have more details for you over the next few days.

Thanks,
Alex

Re: Facebook autopost is not working well after Joomla to 3.8.1 with SSL

Thanks for your patience while we investigate this. We've done quite a bit of testing and we don't think SSL is the issue. It actually looks like a change in how Joomla handles language string redirects.

The good news is that I think the issue should be easy to fix from our testing. If you're up for a quick code change on your site to test, we'd love to hear your feedback. If so, please edit the /libraries/sourcecoast/openGraphPlugin.php file. Around line 472, you should see:

Code:

        if($sef->code == 303)

Update that to:

Code:

        if($sef->code == 303 || $sef->code == 302)

Test that and let us know if it resolves the issue. If so, we'll absolutely include this in the next release.

Thanks!
Alex

Re: Facebook autopost is not working well after Joomla to 3.8.1 with SSL

Dear Alex,
I have tried this option but autopost still not works (I have tried article publish immediately and timed content too). It works always when I unpublish and republish the article.

I attached a screenshopt about my settings.

When I check "Social channels" then I see "Stream Test". I can not see the new article there after publish or timed content's auto publish. So the stream is not working well.

Do you have an other idea, please.

Best regards, Andrew

Dear Melissa,
Sorry for late response. It still not works. I tried 3 times.
Let me know when you have an other idea, please. I need this fixed. Is there anybody else with this problem?
Best regards, Andrew

This code fix resolved the other user that was having the same problem. Could you send me a private message with backend credentials and FTP credentials please?

Dear Melissa,

You are right. Your last code change fixed the problem at me too! Thank you very much!
It didn't work with the previously uploaded contents, but it works with the contents afterwards. I upload contents to this website on every week once. So this is why I needed this delay. It works perfectly with directly and timed publishment as well.
Case is closed on my end. Thank you and have a nice day!
