When you first start posting to groups, the user must set up scripts for posting to groups for each account and create lists of messages (posts).

Open the settings.py file in any text editor.  (links to free text editors   https://notepad-plus-plus.org, https://www.rj-texted.se)

 

In the settings.py file, the configuration data of one script is placed between curly braces {....}.

Create a file with a list of messages (posts) for posting to groups.

For example, in the c:/Twickbot/FB_post_to_group folder, create a file with the posts_category_01.py message list for the groups category_01.

Important! The file name should be as follows:

 posts_category_01.py - where category_01 - category name of the list from the settings.py file

File format with a list of messages: one line - one message (post).

Messages can be of the following types:

  1. Just text;

Record example:

 Text

Templates can be inserted into the message text to make messages unique.

Templates are enclosed in curly brackets "{}", and the elements themselves are separated by the symbol "|" (all without quotes).

The program will compose the text for posting by selecting template elements at random.

Template example:

{Text1 | Text2 | Text3} Text {Text4 | Text5}

When posting will be converted to text:

Text1 Text Text4

or

Text2 Text Text5

or

Text3 Text Text4

etc.

 

Record example:

{Hello to all! | Hello! | Shalom!} {Greatly glad | Happy | Insanely happy} to {see | meet} you all again!

When posting will be converted to text:

Hello to all! Happy to meet you all again!

or

Shalom! Greatly glad to see you all again!

Etc.

!!! Spaces at the beginning and at the end of template elements are ignored; therefore, spaces between plain text and text generated from a template must be placed outside the templates.

 If you want a text message to be placed on several lines on Facebook, insert <br> in the text of the message in the place of the line breaks.

Text_1<br> Text_2<br>Text_3

  1. Just pictures (the path to the picture is set in the form of relative / absolute path);

If you plan to post images in messages, put the image files in the folder

c:\Users\Username\TwickBot\Projects\FB_post_to_group\.

In this folder you can create subfolders of any depth of nesting and place pictures there. In this case, the name of the subfolder must be included in the image file name.

If the pic1.jpg and pic2.jpg files are in the  ./FB_post_to_group folder, and the pic3.jpg and pic4.jpg files are in the ./FB_post_to_group/Pics folder, the post will look like this:

 files_list = ['pic1.jpg', 'pic2.jpg' Pics/pic3.jpg ',' Pics/pic4.jpg ']

An example of an entry indicating the absolute path of the image:

 files_list = ['d:/000/pic1.jpg', 'd:/000/pic2.jpg ’]

  1. Pictures with text;

files_list = ['d:/000/pic1.jpg', 'd:/000/pic2.jpg', 'd:/000/pic3.jpg'] Text

files_list = ['d:/000/pic4.jpg'] Text

        4. Text containing a URL or an indication of image files.

Always at the beginning of the record is placed a link to the image file, and then a space, the message text itself.

  The syntax for writing text + pictures:

files_list = ['name of image1', 'name of image2'] Text

files_list = ['name of image1', 'name of image2'] Text1 <br> Text2

files_list = ['name of image1', 'name of image2'] {Text1 | Text2 | Text3} Text {Text4 | Text5}

 Syntax write text + URL:

URL text

Text1 URL <br> Text2

 {Text1 | Text2 | Text3} Text {URL_1 | URL_2}

Moreover, if at the beginning of the line you put the # symbol (comment out the entry), then when posting this entry will be ignored.

 

Example of writing a list of messages:

post 1
