The Triple Cross Post Action

(▲)

January 16, 2014

The Triple Cross Post action takes a draft (or a prompt in Launch Center Pro) and automatically cross posts it to Twitter, App.net and Facebook.

Running Triple Cross Post From Drafts

In order to work, this action requires the Cross Post Action to also be installed in your Drafts Action List.

Running Triple Cross Post From Launch Center Pro

Adapting Triple Cross Post to Launch Center Pro requires the installation of two extra Drafts actions (as well as the Cross Post action mentioned above), and one Launch Center Pro action. The Launch Center pro action is what you will launch any time you wish to Triple Cross Post. It will first display a keyboard prompt, and after typing in your post just hit return to start the chain to triple cross post.

Since LCP does not have built in Post to App.net or Post to Facebook actions for us to chain together, we have to use Drafts instead. After you hit return on the prompt in Launch Center Pro, LCP will launch Drafts, create a draft with the text of the prompt, and run the launchpro-tcp action on it. This action in turn will run the Cross Post action on the same text, posting it to App.net and Twitter, then it will chain back and run launchpro-tcp2. This action first posts your text to Facebook, then chains back to Launch Center Pro so that you end up in the same place you started from.

Cross Post is only necessary if you did not already import it from the Drafts section above. After importing, make sure to go into settings in Drafts and change "USERNAME" to your actual Twitter username in the code for the Cross Post action:
