nextscripts

XING has recently decided to discontinue its official free API.


Today we are introducing the better alternative – new NextScripts Premium API for XING. Unlike the API from XING that was able to make posts to profiles only, NextScripts Premium API for XING can post to profiles, company pages, and groups.

All current API subscribers are getting it for free today. SNAP WordPress Pro plugin users can use it starting from version 3.7.16 (API 2.27.0). SNAP Pro API and SNAP Light API users should download package version 28 (API 2.27.0)

New beta version is available for download. Two most popular networks Facebook and LinkedIn just got a completely new configuration interfaces.


You can get new version from here: SNAP for WordPress Version 3.7.10.Beta

Just upload it to your plugins directory replacing current files or delete your current SNAP version install it from WP Admin. (That will not delete or anyhow affect your currently configured networks and settings).

Since it’s a beta version, please make a backup before upgrading and please report any issues right away.



1. Facebook.


No more entering Facebook URLs and figuring out your Facebook groups IDs. No more coming back to finish configuration. Please enter your key and secret and click “Authorize”. Then just choose your profile, page or group from the dropdown list.



Facebook also finally dropped obsolete “Attached link” style in favor of “Shared link”, so less complication there as well.


2. LinkedIn.


LinkedIn got more options and features. Premium NextScripts API got support for rich text “Pulse” posts. Support for new built-in LinkedIn v2 API also has been added. LinkedIn v2 API allows posts to company pages, so free plugin users can do that now.

LinkedIn also got the same brand new interface as Facebook. You can just enter your key and secret or username and password and select your profile, page or group from the dropdown list.

Autoposting to Instagram

Instagram Autoposting is coming to SNAP!


3 years ago we wrote an article explaining why Instagram was not supported. Instagram was accepting images only from the phones and other mobile devices and there was no way to post there from the website or API. Since then we were considering creating our own API for Instagram. Well, today we are announcing it.


NextScripts API for Instagram will be available for all active API subscribers Friday March 5, 2016 as part of the Universal API.


More info as well as demo is here: SNAP: Autoposting to Instagram


New Strategy and SNAP for Wordpress Version 3.5
NXS
nextscripts

Today we are announcing SNAP for WordPress Version 3.5. It will be released on Friday, March 4, 2016. This version is a result of our decision to change our release strategy. We are still working on completely new and totally re-written version 4. That version will be a major release and it already took a lot of time to develop. We realized that while we are sitting on some cool features that were made for upcoming V4, version 3.4 already got 32 almost featureless releases. We are sitting on them for too long. Some of those features require brand new V4 platform and engine, but some of them can be easily ported to V3 and work along with the old code.


So we decided to make several smaller releases instead of keep people waiting for one big.


We are starting with version 3.5 that got new API connection engine. New engine comes with highly optimized, smaller and faster V4 API connector files. We created a way for new API connection engine to seamlessly work with the old one.


v35-two-engins


Version 3.5 has three networks based on this new V4 API connection engine:

Telegram [New] (Free and Pro),

Instagram [New] (active “SNAP API” subscription members only),

XING [Updated] (Free and Pro).


Eventually all networks will be ported to new V4 API connection engine. Very soon we will make couple more V3 releases with new interface, features and networks and then, once we finish new autoposting engine, we will switch it on and call that release V4. That’s the plan.


PS: We apologize to all people who are waiting for the new “existing posts re-posting” functionality. This feature actually requires new V4 posting engine and will be available only in actual V4.


Upcoming Version 4 Features: Post Filters

Version 4 is coming out soon. One of the new features is “Filters” – an ability to define exactly what posts should go to each configured networks.

NXS
nextscripts

Version 4 is coming out soon. One of the most important new features is a completely redone auto-reposting.


Auto-reposting in version 3 was done as on/off switch per network and separate include/exclude property per each post. It was very complicated and some reposting scenarios that were not possible or very hard to setup:


- Repeat one particular tweet each day at 9AM

– Auto-Repost only posts from specific categories or tags

– Auto-Repost only posts written by specific author.

– Auto-Repost only “Image” format posts, not “Link” or “Standard”.

– Auto-Repost some specific posts from 9AM to 11AM and some different posts from 6PM to 9PM


Version 4 will use Reposter Actions. Each Reposter Action can be configured individually and you can setup what posts should be posted to what networks and when should it happen.


V4 Reposter



Reposter Action has 4 configurable sections


1. You can Activate/Deactivate the Reposter and set ho to get your posts – One-by-one or Randomly.


V4 Reposter


2. You can choose what networks this Reposter should post to.


V4 Reposter


3. You can set how often to posts as well as what time it should start and stop.
