Farmers from all over have been emailing our website asking, “Dan, How can I turn on/off Auto Publishing in FarmVille?”. Well, these are great questions with VERY simple answers. Tag along with us in the easy to do tutorial on disabling and enabling Auto Publishing in FarmVille!
Disabling FarmVille Auto Publishing…
We will start with how to disable Auto Publishing since this is the most asked for and it is simpler than you think! Auto publishing gives permission to FarmVille VIA your Privacy Settings to allow posts to go straight to your wall with zero interaction with Facebook Pop ups. Lets get started by being on your personal Facebook page and going to the upper right and finding Account then Privacy Settings. You can also just click here to go directly there.
Once inside your Privacy Settings you will see 3 bold options at the bottom called “Apps and Websites”, “Block Lists” and “Controlling How You Share”. You will want to head to the “Apps and Websites” section on the right and select the blue link that reads “Edit your Settings”.
Now you can see some of the Applications you use. If you are an avid FarmVille player your FarmVille app should be in the first 5 displayed. You can see I have not been on mine since yesterday, yeah, I am a bad neighbor Now you will just want to click on the FarmVille Icon or FarmVille text to take you to the next step.
Here is the final stretch for removing that pesky Auto Publish Feature. You will want to find the “Post to my Wall” feature of the FarmVille Application. On that line you will want to look to the right and find the “Remove” link which will remove the permission you gave the app to post to your wall. Viola!
Enabling Auto Publishing…
Alright Dan, you showed us how to get rid of Auto Publishing, how do we get it back if we decide we want it later? Simple my dear Watson! Just load your Farm and come right back here to read the rest. That means you will need the game loaded to do this
Are you all loaded up? Alright, Hit the Camera Button and you will receive the pop up below that welcomes you to the new Camera Feature. Click okay and see what happens next!
Taking a Photo of your Farm is a task the requires permission to Auto Publish to your Wall. This in turn will ask permission for the application to post to your wall again and will enable the same feature as before! Viola! You are Auto Publishing again.
