Links for game feed pages
So to recap - all this started yesterday with a line that Zynga had at the top of my farmville game when it was loading. It was a link to a page where you could view just farmville posts. Here was the link that they shared:
Now from looking at the link, I knew that the key was the app id number at the end. But I couldn't figure out where to find the app id number at. I tried some numbers from some links, but none of them worked. But now I have figured out where to find the app id number so you can create links like this for all your games.
Here is how to create your own game post page links for all your games:
- Step 1 - You start out with this base:
Then next you will need to find the game app id number to put at the end of the link. There are two ways that you can find the game app id number.
- Step 2 - Finding the game app id number:
Go to your game that you want to create a link for, then go to the bottom of the page.
- But if that doesn't give you your game app id number, then look at picture A above. Right-click on number 2, the 'Report/Contact this app' phrase. You will get the following:
Select 'copy link address' from the menu. Then paste the link into a text file. It will look something like this:
You only need the number from the end. Put the number with the link given in Step 1 above, and you have your link for a page that will show your friend's posts for that game; and only that game's posts.
In this example, we have created a game posts page link for the game Fantasy Kingdoms. If you go to your page and no posts are showing, you will want to click 'edit options' and unhide that game's posts. I had to do that with a couple of the pages I created, as I had hidden that games posts in my feed; and had forgotten about it.
You can do this for any game you play. Be sure to save the links you create in your browser favorites or in a text file. I created a folder for them all in my browser favorites.
Have fun, and happy gaming.
