Quicker way to look for FBIA warnings #871

We have a client telling us that sometimes in the past they have seen errors/warnings from the FBIA plugin that result in articles not going through to facebook or having missing content. However, they're not able to give me any examples at the moment.

As far as I can tell, the only way to see if an article has a warning is to open the post editor and check the FBIA metabox. This is inefficient since they have thousands of posts.

Is there a way to get a list or log of articles that may have FBIA warnings?

Steps required to reproduce the problem

  1. Go to posts index in wp-admin
  2. Open posts for editing one at a time
  3. Look for FBIA warnings
  4. Slowly die of old age

Expected Result

A log, CLI tool or dashboard area with a list of FBIA warnings.

Actual Result

I haven't yet found anything like that.

Version Info

  • Plugin version: 4.0 in VIP plugins repository.
  • WordPress version: 4.92
  • PHP version: 7.xx

Hi @Kluny, we do not have such functionality in the plugin.

I feel your pain and this is something I will talk to the team and see if we can come up with a solution.

Thanks for the idea :)

Fair enough, I'll share something I found while I was reading the code base -

It looks like there is a method in FBIA conveniently called InstantArticlesPost::has_warnings_after_transformation(). Using that I can add, within the post index loop -

while(has_posts()) {
    $fbia = new Instant_Articles_Post($post_id);

    if($fbia->has_warnings_after_transformation()) {
        // this value is cached so hopefully it's not too resource-intensive
        // output an error message

That will give us a little green or red light in the posts index to indicate whether FBIA is throwing errors or not.

If I get to it before you guys do I'll make a pull request.

@mburak or @vkama, wondering if I could get a review or merge?

Just want to say I love the concept of this patch so much! Will really help admins who want to quickly audit how things are going (and be a useful red flag for managing editors if they see any red or a lot of yellow).

(would test it myself but waiting for feedback about a composer bug)
