How to add sites to merged “Member Blog Posts” page:

If the link isn’t in our blogroll (the sidebar to the right) yet,

  1. http://miters.mit.edu/blog/wp-login.php?
  2. http://miters.mit.edu/blog/wp-admin/link-add.php
  3. Specifically, fill out: Advanced > RSS Address
  4. Go to http://miters.mit.edu/blog/wp-admin/post.php?post=543&action=edit and click “Update” (forces page to refresh)
  5. done

If it is already in our blogroll

  1. Head over to http://miters.mit.edu/blog/wp-admin/link-manager.php
  2. Find your link and hit “Edit”
  3. Scroll down to “Advanced > RSS address” and put in the address of your blog feed


(if you are a MITERS keyholders)
You are now* a manger on this facebook page and can post to it.
If you post to that, your post (including images) gets replicated on the MITERS blog (but not immediately). Hurrah!
So, only post things you want on the MITERS blog on there.

I installed a wordpress plugin “feedwordpress” and fed it the RSS feed of that page. The plugin polls the RSS feed about every 60 minutes. If there’s a new post, it will copy it to the miters blog. Currently there’s no admin approval so it posts right away. Comments don’t show up in the RSS feed so they don’t show up on the site. All the posts show up as by “MITERS on facebook” or whatever i named it, i forget, and are stuck in the “facebook reblog” category.
