Feed Posts

This feature displays a dialog requesting permission to make a feed post to a player's wall on behalf of the game. If the player is not authenticated, it will require the player to authenticate before displaying the dialog.

The player may optionally allow all posts from your game. If the player choses to enable that feature, then this will automatically make a post on that player's wall without invoking the dialog.

The showFeedPostBox method takes a content argument, which can either be a string containing the text to place into the feed, or an object that contains properties defining the content, image, and parameters to be passed into the game. It fires a callback once the dialog is closed.

Name

Type

Description

content

String or Object

A string containing the text for the feed post, or an object with content, image_uri, and kv_params fields.

callback

Function

A callback method which will be called with an object containing type, recipients, success, and error fields.

Note

While the game is not published (in "preview" mode), the post will not actually show on the user's feed. This is to avoid confusion around games that aren't public sending out messages. As long as you get the pop-up friend selection box and confirmation the API is integrated correctly

Making a Feed Post

Feed posts are composed of two components: the content of the feed post, and (optionally) an image URI that you specify. If you do not specify an image URI, then the game's icon will be used instead.

Basic Feed Posts

If you don't need a custom image, you may invoke showFeedPostBox with a string containing the post content:

kongregate.services.showFeedPostBox("Praise the Sun!", function(result:Object):void {
        trace("Success: " + result.success);
});
kongregate.services.showFeedPostBox("Praise the Sun!", function(result) {
    console.log("Success: " + result.success);
});

Using a Custom Image and Parameters

If you wish to specify a custom image and parameters to be passed into the game when clicked, then you will need to pass in an object with the properties:

Name

Type

Description

content

String

The text content for the feed post

image_uri

String

Link to an image to use as an icon for the feed post

kv_params

Object

Optional parameters to be passed into the game when the feed post link is followed

Example: Complex feed post:

kongregate.services.showFeedPostBox({
  content: "Come help defeat the boss!",
  image_uri: "http://your-domain.tld/feed-post-images/really-hard-boss-face.png",
  kv_params: { kv_promo_code: 12345 }
}, function(result:Object):void {
    trace("Success: " + result.success);
});
kongregate.services.showFeedPostBox({
  content: "Come help defeat the boss!",
  image_uri: "http://your-domain.tld/feed-post-images/really-hard-boss-face.png",
  kv_params: { kv_promo_code: 12345 }
}, function(result) {
    console.log('Success: ' + success);
});
