Facebook Feed Dialog

    Hey, hoping someone can help with this.

    I have a Gravity Form that I'm using for an event sign up which is working great. The customer fills in the form then pays with PayPal and is redirected back to a static "Success" page which gives generic details of their successful sign up.

    What I'd like to do now is display a Facebook Feed Dialog embedded into the success page which encourages the user to post to their wall "I just signed up for..."

    I'm a bit of a dummy when it comes to Facebook stuff though and I've looked at their docs and just feel like I'm going round in circles so I'd just like to know if this is possible? I did think of entering the submission URL as a Facebook link to do that and then redirecting back to my success page from there but not sure if: a) that would work? or b) be very annoying?

    Any thoughts appreciated!

  2. It's possible. However I am not familiar with Facebook enough either, to tell you how to do it. Can you create a success page in WordPress and use that for your confirmation page? In that page, along with your current generic details of their sign-up, the Facebook Feed dialog could be displayed.

    Documentation:
    https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/dialogs/feed/

    It's possible with Gravity Forms, however this customization is largely dependent on your familiarity with Facebook.
