A relatively new feature on WordPress.com are forms. You have been able to add a poll to a post for some time via the Polldaddy button but now you can add a form to post using the last button on the media bar (next to the polldaddy button) above the text input box:
The obvious form to create would be a contact form to collect readers details but as you can add many different sections they can be used to collect lots of different sorts of information:
This is clearly adding functionality similar to Google Forms and Survey Monkey and although it is not as functional as these other forms (e.g. no multiple choice boxes) it is a nice start and could be an excellent solution for straight forward form especially as it is so easy to add in to a blog post.
This post should show you how to post any publicly readable RSS reed to a “Facebook Page”. There are many ways to add RSS updates to your personal profile but to add to Facebook Business Page.
- First find your WordPress Blog’s RSS feed If this is a WordPress hosted blog on WordPress.com then if your blog is example.wordpress.com then feed is usually example.wordpress.com/feed. You can always test this by putting your blog address followed by “/feed” in your browser’s address bar and you should see a list of your last posts
- On you Facebook Page click edit page
- From the list of applications go down no “Notes” and click Edit.
- From left hand side again click “Edit import Settings”
- Finally enter the RSS feed address we found at number 1 into the RSS box.
This should work for any RSS feed but unfortunately it will only work for as there is no option currently to add another RSS feed after the first.
