Socialite allows your WordPress posts to publish to Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace. Each social networking site can be enabled or disabled for publishing, and each is configured separately with their own options. Support for Short URL services such as and is also supported.

A few notes about this plugin:

  • IMPORTANT: Socialite requires PHP 5.0.0 or greater. The Facebook API was written for PHP5, due to this fact, I wrote Socialite using PHP5 syntax. Furthermore PHP 4 was retired on Dec 31, 2007 and it won't be supported. If you are getting parse errors when attempting to use Socialite, this is because you are not using PHP5.

  • IMPORTANT: MySpace does not have an official API that supports posting to the MySpace blog. This means cURL had to be used to emulate logging in and posting to the MySpace blog. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE PHP CURL OPTIONS INSTALLED ON YOUR SERVER, THE MYSPACE MODULE WILL NOT WORK!
    Please read for more information

  • IMPORTANT: If you are encountering problems posting to Facebook, please either change the URL Shortening service you have selected, or uncheck the URL Shortening checkbox under the Facebook options. Facebook blocks and filters some urls from posting to a Facebook Wall, this includes some URL Shortening URLs, and prevents Socialite from posting to your Wall.

  • The Twitter and Facebook modules are written using each networks official API, so barring any mistakes on my part, both modules should be pretty stable.
