[resolved] Social Publisher does not work with scheduled posts (25 posts)

    When scheduling a post for a future publish time, the Social Publisher does not publish to my facebook page. It works fine if I click publish right away.

    Only happens when a scheduled post comes out.

    Same problem here. Using WordPress 3.5 with Facebook 1.2.3. Publishing works fine on posts published right away, but planned posts will not go to Facebook. Would like some info on this as it is REALLY annoying!

    I am having the same problem as well and been searching on the net to find answers... Know its something in the way scheduled posts are handled internally as opposed to directly publishing but I don't know enough coding to tell you why this is or how to fix it :/

    yea, I switched to NextScripts: Social Networks Auto-Poster, had to purchase NextScripts: SNAP Pro Upgrade Helper in order to publish posts to multiple accounts, but it works on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ profiles and/or pages. But, and here's the important part; it works, no issues so far, and it has been a month.

    This still isn't functional. As someone managing a website with regularly scheduled content, this feature is useless. A fix is required.

    Happening with me too (of course, as it hasn't been fixed).

    It'd be really nice if someone on the dev team could at least acknowledge this thread and say 'sure it'll be fixed in X weeks/months' as right now this is extremely frustrating.

    So you guys are saying the plugin doesn't publish scheduled posts????

    This is an issue?

    Oh man, I was switching to this plugin, since my old plugin is pretty flaky (Facebook Page Plugin).

    I guess I'll switch back and live with the flakiness...

    You're correct. Scheduled posts do not go onto Facebook through the social aspect of this plugin.

    Something also the FB WordPress devs haven't acknowledged.

    any news?

    I know it's a free service... but at least tell us if it's planned for the future...

    Yep. Same.
    They do say that it is supported and works.

    the problem is, scheduled posts' data is not being scraped by facebook and input for the og tags...

    its annoying, and I have been dealing with it for months, going on almost a year and the facebok devs do not even acknowledge the issue despite numerous support forum posts on the problem... fail

    to fix the issue, you have to take the post url, copy it, then load the facebook debugger and paste the post url into it, then hit the debug button... this will force facebook to scrape your posts og data and then it will be sharable again. Your scheduled post is basically unreachable by facebook until you do this, that is why it can't republish it for you.

    it sucks that we are handcuffed on this issue and the devs at facebook seem to be sitting on their hands when it comes to a fix.

    Scheduled post support should be improved with plugin version 1.5.3. If you are still experiencing issues please open a new support thread with details.

    Thanks Niall. I'm afraid if it doesn't work, we'll have to wait 6+ months again for any kind of recognition. Is there another way, more effectively, to request such support?
