I had used this plugin a while ago and it seemed so stable then.
I have now been testing for hours with really spotty results.
Sometimes I get a Shortened URL for Twitter, others times not. Sometimes it Posts the Image and Article like a Twitter Card and sometimes it does not.
Same thing with Facebook.
I am using YoAST CEO to build Twitter Cards and Facebook Graph.
Is there something I am missing because things seem to be really spotty with posting to Social Media using this Plugin.
Since you have already purchased the plugin so we have replied in your all queries in another thread.
I have a request outside of the last two posts I have made.
Is were a way to keep the Auto Post Drop down set to YES without it always going to NO after a post? I migrate these posts to another site and need that Flag on for Auto Post to work at the destination site.
Thank you for writing in.
For making the auto post always select to yes, you will need to do a small edit in one of our plugin files.
Please open file accesspress-social-auto-post.php and go to line number 339 and replace it with below code.
$auto_post = 'yes';
I just received the announcement of an update, but how to set it up? When I run the installation I have an error “the folder already exists”. I look good there is no instructions to perform the update …
For updating, please download the latest version from your codecanyon account’s download page through below link.
Once downloaded, please deactivate and delete the existing version and install and activate the latest version and all your settings should remain as is.
thanks to this great add-on. How do I update an add-on to see if my old one needs to be removed and reinstalled?
How do the settings disappear?
For upgrading, you will need to deactivate the free version and install and activate the pro version.
Unfortunately, you will need to re setup the plugin.because of difference in settings structure of free and pro version.
I upgraded to the pro version of AccessPress. I’m using WordPress for my web page. I added the AccessPress, so i could auto post my blog directly to Facebook. The blog look boring, when they are posted. I was hoping by upgrading to the pro version it would give me the opportunity to customize the post by adding pictures and such. Maybe i’m missing something, but i do not see the option. I am on a kindergarten/elementary school level, when it comes to the topic of web page building/maintenance and such.
Did you check our Premium features and demo before purchasing? Regarding the auto posting, there isn’t much difference in free version and pro version but you can add multiple accounts in the premium version along with few more social medias such as tumblr and linkedin.
Regarding changing picture in blog post, it was possible few months back but Facebook had already updated its API and currently that cannot be controlled through API but it will fetch the images from the facebook og tags set in your site. Auto posting from our plugin is same as manual link posting in the facebook.
My website is www.avara.tech
purchase code: 99fd9c85-fb75-460f-bf98-796d79cd8345
Can you please help me.
The Auto-post feature doesn’t seem to be working.
I am using WP-Robot plugin for auto blogging. But the blog posts are not auto posting to social media. I need to do go to the blog post, and click update and only then the blog post goes to social media (facebook)
The auto post works for default WordPress post publish mechanism and we had been informed by our clients that it is working with few RSS importer too.
But still, it will depend upon the third party plugin regarding how it is inserting the post to WordPress database. If it is using all the default WordPress functionalities and executes all the necessary actions of the WordPress itself then it shall work. It should execute publish_post action after each post insert.
So can you please ask the support of the plugin that you are using regarding the issue?
I do believe we’ve got the plug-in set up correctly, however, we keep getting Bad Authentication in the logs when testing the posting. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated!
Can you please check the post message format? If there is #post_content then please remove and place either #post_title or #post_link.
And also can you please try by creating a new app and using the new credentials once and let us know?
Why arent thumbnails passing over to twitter as was before???
Is link being posted properly? And also check if you are using the URL shortner or not? If yes then please let us know if short URL is being posted or not? If not then please try using it and let us know.
I just purchased this plugin – Purchase Code – 4a3a54fd-58b1-44da-9275-251a36245df9
When I click on the Download link, i get an error from my system stating – This file contains a virus or a malware. And it doesn’t download.
We can assure you that our plugin doesn’t contains any virus. May be your system is considering the js file inside the plugin as a virus but that shouldn’t do any harm to your system.
Is there an option to ignore the warning and download anyways? And please try different browsers along with browser default download manager rather than other 3rd party download manager softwares to download the plugin.
If still you are unable to download and install then please send us your site wp-admin login details through the private contact form available in the below link and we will install it for you. But we urge you to try it yourself first.
Thanks for your response. I was able to download it and installed it as per documentation. Then in the Settings I set up FB and Twitter accounts – but I did not turn on Auto-post as I do not want all my posts to automatically post to my FB and Twitter page. I want to be able to go to an individual post and then selectively send to FB and Twitter. So I edit a post and at the top right I see the “Enable Auto-post” section. I select YES and then Update/Save the post, but I do not see it on my Facebook or Twitter page.
What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance for your assistance.
Can you please check in the log section and let us know if any logs are stored there?
And also please note that if you are auto posting specific category posts only then you will need to save the post in the draft by selected the category first and then hit the publish.
The log section is empty.
Have you tried by saving the post in the draft post and then hitting the publish?
In that case, can you please send us your site wp-admin temporary login details through the private contact form available in the below link.
Hi – still not working for me. I do not want to auto-post every WP post. I just want to post individual articles from WordPress. I want the writer to be able to manually update a post and decided at that time whether to send that post to FB and twitter. Is this do-able with your plugin?
Hi – I finally got it to work. However at certain times it pulls an image that is not the Featured Image. Do you know why that would happen?
The image that is pulled by FB while sharing any link is the og image that is set in your site which is not in our plugin’s control.
If the og image tag needs to be set in your site and then FB will fetch that image.
Please use facebook og debugger if your site has correct og image or not.
If facebook og tags are not set properly in your site then please Yoast SEO plugin to set those tags.
That’s done, and it’s ok !
Thank you !
Is there a way to auto publish all past posts ?
Currently, our plugin requires manual post publishing to trigger the auto post so you will need to update the previous posts with Auto Post selected as yes to auto post in the configured social media.
Hi there, after install your plugin, and filled form about facebook account, I cannot save nothing! When I press save button I’ll be redirecting to list account without anything in list
The issue is a bit new to us. Can you please provide us your site temporary login details through the private contact form available in the below link so that we check directly on your site.
Hello, I want to publish on social networks (mainly facebook and twitter) articles
1/ only certain categories
2/no more than one article per day, even if several articles are published on the website
4/publication of old articles (eg less than 30 days from certain categories)
5/adjustment of the length of the text (content, possibly excerpt)
6/ automatic recovery of the 1st image of the article
Thank you for writing in. Here are your replies:
1. Yes, its available
2. You can choose whether to auto post or not while publishing the post.
3. Yes its the mechanism that our plugin uses. Manual publication.
4. For publishing the old articles too, you will need to manually click the update button by selecting auto post as Yes in the post editor page.
5. You can use #post_excerpt parameter to send the post excerpt of the auto published post.
6. The image that is shown in the facebook while auto posting is fetched by Facebook itself and it fetches the og tag set in your site. So if you have set the og image as the first image of the article then it will be displayed in the facebook while auto posting too. For this you can use Facebook og debugger tool to check if your article has the correct og tags or not.
Hi, I’d like to ask for help.
I bought your product and unfortunately I have problems posting auto on Twitter.
FB works, but I’d like to see a thumbnail picture too.
1. Twitter – There is an error in the auto post, “Tweet needs to be a bit shorter.”
Can I cut the text in any way?
Can I make part of the text bold?
2. FB – How can I add a preview image to a working auto post in a wordpress post?
Can I make part of the text bold?
For example, in “Post Message Format” using HTML tags?
3. Vkontakte – Are you planning to develop for this social network? There is a large community of users and the connection to this social network would certainly increase the number of customers
Thank you for writing in. Here are your replies.
1. The auto post content shall be controlled through the post message format textbox. Have you included #post_content too in the post message format textbox? If yes then please only include #post_title or #post_link so that it will auto post only post title or post link which won’t exceed the text limit of the twitter. And twitter or facebook doesn’t support html tags in the auto post content.
2. The auto posting by our plugin is same as auto posting the link in the facebook manually and the image that will be displayed in the facebook while sharing any link is fetched by Facebook itself and it will fetch the image from the og: image tag set in your site. If it is not set yet, then you can use some SEO plugins such as Yoast SEO plugin which will set the Featured image of the post as the og image tag and it will fetched by the Facebook when any link is shared. You can also use Facebook og debugger to debug the og tags in your site.
3. We haven’t done any research regarding the API availability of the VK social media but we will try to come up with this Social Media in our future updates if it provides the API to auto post and documentation is proper.
Hello, thank you.
Do I need to install the Yoast SEO Plugin to automatically upload photos to the FB?
Currently, our plugin doesn’t have the feature to upload the photos directly to the facebook but facebook will fetch the image from the site when the link is shared.
Regarding VK integration, thank you for providing us the useful links.
We will try to come up with this network in our future updates but we can’t give you ETA currently.
I noticed once again that Twitter account settings will not work again on my Twitter channel ??
AccessPress Social Auto Post does not show on Twitter article images just headline, something is wrong because it worked in the past?
Can you please check in the log section if any error logs are stored there? And if you haven’t changed any settings and it automatically stopped working then can you please recreate the twitter app and use new credentials and check?
My plugin isn’t even working at all. Please help.
Can you please provide us more details regarding your issues? Are you able to setup the accounts in our plugin?
Thank you for providing us the screenshots. This comment section is public so please change the details that you had sent to us immediately.
And can you please keep #post_title #post_link in the post message format box and try again?
And also can you please share the screenshot of the log section if any logs are stored?
logs for twitter keep saying “Tweet needs to be a bit shorter.” indicating that I was using the wrong Post Message Format. Why don’t you just have it pre-populated with the correct format for Twitter. Would avoid a lot of hassle, confusion and errors or at the very least a simple message of what to use at a min. to get Twitter to work. Thanks for your help.
We hadn’t kept that restriction because it can be controlled by the site admin themselves. The #post_content is replaced by the actual post content and if it is higher than twitter character limit, then surely twitter will send the error. For checking that also we had kept the logs section where users can check the status of the each posting.
We didn’t removed #post_content because many users can use as per their own need.
Also we’ve already made a bunch of post that NEVER posted. Are we SOL or can we repost them and obviously we wouldn’t want them all posting at one time . Disappointed this didn’t work.
You can re-post them by simply updating the post. But first, please follow the instructions that we had provided in your another post.
So I have to manually go in and change something to every post??? Then I have to do that once a week for the next 2 months? Surely there is an easier way. Also as a friendly piece of advice that would probably help everyone. If you are on the TWITTER TAB, then simply put “Make sure to use #post_title #post_link so that you don’t get errors.”
