If in a script is not required the PayPal Identity Token and you just add the email address for PayPal payments(just email, no api or identity token), the payment PayPal system is good for nothing, because with a simple url success you can upgrade your plan with a fake transaction. For this reason Midrub uses the Identity Token to verify if the payment was done as expected, expected money value and if transaction wasn’t done before. You can read here How to get the PayPal Identity Token For a success payment verification, you have to add in your plan the price with decimals. And you have to add correct Currency Code supported by PayPal https://developer.paypal.com/docs/classic/api/currency_codes/
Recently Facebook have changed their api, and now the parameter “published” for /me/photos is not supported more. I’ve used this parameter to hide uploaded photos. Without this parameter, the photos will be published twice(once for upload and second for publish). I’ve tried many parameters to get an alternative for the parameter “published”, and i’ve discover the parameter “no_story” which works almost in the same way. To fix uploading of the photos on Facebook, please open the file application/autopost/Facebook.php and replace the parameter “published” with “no_story” in the code $postu = $this->fb->post(‘/me/photos’, [‘url’ => $args[‘img’], ‘published’ => FALSE], $user_details->token); Another changes i’ve discover for /me/feed. Now the parameter “attached_media” is not supported more. To fix this, i’ve replaced it with the[…]

After many requests, i’ve decided to add new fields email sender and name sender in Email Campaigns. Now you can add a different Email Sender and Name Sender for each Email Campaign. Another option added today was the SMTP Protocol field. I’ve seen some servers doesn’t support the protocol sendmail and for this reason you will add manually the SMTP protocol for each email campaigns or globally from admin. I will continue to improve the existing Midrub’s features and in the following days i will write new posts about the new improvements.
Initially i’ve added Twitter in Midrub and i’ve added the type VARCHAR 250 for the token column. This size was enough for more than a year for all social networks. But recently i’ve discover that Linkedin’s token now is more longer than 250 characters. For this reason i will release in several days a new update and the token column siize will be changed automatically. But if you have now this problem with the Linkedin token, in the video bellow you can watch how to fix this before i will release the update
Now you can upload photos on VK as photos and share links as links on VK. When you will connect a new VK account, Midrub will create a new album. Don’t delete it, you can edit the title and description but don’t delete it. Midrub will upload all photos in the album and then will publish the photos on your wall. In the following weeks i will create even several bots for VK.
Midrub allows you to connect the Facebook groups where you are admin. But i don’t recommend you to use this feature if you want to spam a group. Because when you publish from your installation, the owner of the group will see the name and link for your Facebook application. And he can easily report your application and you will lost it. I didn’t added this feature in Midrub because i want follow and respect the social networks terms and policy. If you want to provide a stable service, you have to follow the terms and policy of each social network. The autopost’s class for joined groups can be provided on request.
