That will just post a link to the thread, he wants the actual posts on his forum to automatically be posted on facebook, or that's what is sounds like to me.

No, there is no way to do that. Even now in order to post a thread from a forum or anything else on facebook you have to enter a CAPTCHA, so there is no way they will allow posts in a particular thread to automatically be posted on facebook.

Yes that's a more accurate explanation.

Rideem3 and I were wrong, you can indeed set up your forum to automatically add your forum posts to facebook which also will include a link to the topic. You can set it up at the link below. I have done this and it works perfectly. When someone creates a topic it is automatically posted to facebook with the post and link to your forum. It only adds the topics first post not the replies.

The link says twitter feed but they also do facebook.
