    Hi,

    I just installed and got Facebook and Twitter set up. This morning's post got sent to Facebook and the links work, except instead of the blog title, it says "Database error" with a proper excerpt below.

    It did not get posted to twitter at all, despite settings insisting that my test to twitter worked perfectly.

    My url is icblog.firstreferernce.com

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    In the log, I have the following:

    [2014-04-07 10:32:04] - [Cancelled]- Autopost Cancelled - Post is not "Published" Right now - Post ID:(16031) - Current Post status -future
    [2014-04-07 10:31:59] - [*** ID: 16031, Type: post]- Status Changed: future_to_publish. Autopost requested.

    The post was scheduled to publish automatically at 10:30 am. It was posted to our blog exactly at 10:30 am.

    Thanks!

    there is no errors or any information about twitter at all, aside from when twitter was authorized:
    [Twitter - @firstreference] - OK - TEST Message Posted

    Well, your log is showing that the status of the post was changed from "Scheduled" to "Published" at around 10:30, but then was changes back to "Scheduled".

    What do you use for scheduling?

    Hi,

    I did notice that, but that doesn't make much sense. We use WordPress' automatic scheduling that is built into their normal posts. The odd thing is that the Facebook post appeared, but the title was "Database error." Correct links, correct excerpt, wrong title. Strange.

    Also, Twitter was not mentioned in the log at all. I'm guessing that's because it was recorded as a successful post? Except that it didn't appear on Twitter at all.

    Thanks
    Samantha

    Having similar issue - posts from WP blog feed go thru Hootsuite and are supposed to post to about 20 Facebook fan pages, but about half show "database error" as the post. The link works fine, but this looks really awful. Is it a WP issue or Hootsuite issue or a FB issue?

    carolynclarkdfw, Please don't ask about issues with Hootsuite here. Hootsuite is our competitor.

    Having the same issue - the title of the post is Database Error on Facebook.

    Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,
