Testing my integration between WordPress and Facebook using Integromat. This is a ‘standard’ blog post. Typically longer, these might contain multiple paragraphs, some images, or maybe a video.

The problem with Facebook interpreting these is that these posts often contain HTML formatting, and Facebook doesn’t parse HTML for regular posts. My solution is to use the Advanced Custom Fields WordPress plugin, and create an ACF custom field that appears in my sidebar when writing a WordPress post.

After I’m done writing my blog post, I can copy and paste whatever parts of my blog post over to that field (without HTML formatting). It’s a little bit of extra work, but if you’re reading this, it seems to work OK.
