It’s been a while since we touched upon the facePLANT plugin we created for Windows Live Writer. We had some people that had trouble getting it to work, so we did some testing of our own. We created some new facebook accounts, did some debugging and as it turns out facebook is now implementing some new permissions requirements when it comes to updating your status.

Facebook now requires all applications to get “Extended Permission” in order for them to update your facebook status. We did some tweaking of the code, and now it will prompt you to grant permission for the “Windows Live Writer” application to update your facebook status.

Once you have granted access, facePLANT should have no problems updating your status. So give it a download and let us know if you experience any problems.

Installation Instructions:

  1. Download the Zip file from above.
  2. Extract the DLL’s into your WLW Plugins directory (Ex. C:Program Files (x86)Windows LiveWriterPlugins)
  3. Run Windows Live Writer
  4. Optional: You may configure the default message by going to Tools > Options > Plugins > facePLANT > options button
