Vanilla forums + Facebook Open Graph?

Is there any chance for Vanillaforums and Facebook Open Graph integration ( just like quora.com ) ?

This is my question on Quora: http://www.quora.com/Vanilla-Forums/Vanilla-forums-+-Facebook-Open-Graph

    I can't figure out how to get OG:Description to be an excerpt, for example,

    <head> ... <meta property="og:description" content="<?php echo substr($Object->Body,0,300); ?>"/> ... </head>

    doesn't work in the header because $Object isn't defined there; it's only defined in comment/posts (where $Object->Body can be used to print the post content)

  • here is a brand new plugin: http://vanillaforums.org/addon/opengraph-plugin

    But it's quite simple :(

  • Well, you can of course tell me which features you wish included and I can see what I can do...

    Just want to let you know that i really appreciate what you've done with this plugin.

    And, it'd be greate if this plugin can define and publish user's activities on Vanilla to user's facebook timeline (ex: ask, answer, read, reply, like ... ) ( using facebook actions: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/opengraph/actions/ )

    This is an example, a WP plugin that can define and publish "read" action: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/fb-social-reader/

    Open graph meta tags are core in the upcoming beta.

  • @Todd: That's wonderful

    Any chance for Facebook integration yet ?

    Heh, well then this plugin will be obsolete. Are features planned similar to what @ffvinh asked about?

    We aren't going to be doing actions at this time. In order for actions to work with Vanilla there would have to be a way of us creating action types programatically. Otherwise every forum owner would have to go into facebook and do that themselves. Right now, people have a very hard time just figuring out how to get a client id and secret.
