  $user_id = $facebook->getUser();

<!doctype html>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Facebook Post to Wall</title>

if($user_id) {

	// We have a user ID, so probably a logged in user.
	// If not, we'll get an exception, which we handle below.
	try {
		$ret_obj = $facebook->api('/me/feed', 'POST',
									'link' => '',
									'message' => 'Posting with the PHP SDK!'
		echo '<pre>Post ID: ' . $ret_obj['id'] . '</pre>';

		// Give the user a logout link 
		echo '<br /><a href="' . $facebook->getLogoutUrl() . '">logout from Facebook.</a>';
	} catch(FacebookApiException $e) {
        // If the user is logged out, you can have a 
        // user ID even though the access token is invalid.
        // In this case, we'll get an exception, so we'll
        // just ask the user to login again here.
        $login_url = $facebook->getLoginUrl( array(
				'scope' => 'publish_stream'
        echo 'Please <a href="' . $login_url . '">login.</a>';
} else {

    // No user, so print a link for the user to login
    // To post to a user's wall, we need publish_stream permission
    // We'll use the current URL as the redirect_uri, so we don't
    // need to specify it here.
    $login_url = $facebook->getLoginUrl( array( 'scope' => 'publish_stream' ) );
    echo 'Please <a href="' . $login_url . '">login.</a>';


Copy index.php and the src directory from the PHP SDK to the that folder on your website what you entered earlier for your app.
