Social Publisher: Posting to Timeline when I told it not too! (13 posts)

    I want it to post to my page, just my page.

    But even though I have unchecked post to Timeline, it is not honoring that as it post to both my personal linked account's timeline as well as to my page.

    Why?

    I even revoked publishing privileges on my personal page which removes the post but doesn't seem to really prevent it from future posts.

    What I mean is:

    "Post to Facebook Timeline using Open Graph actions"

    is unchecked. I just have the Facebook Page stuff set.

    Why is is posting to my personal account's Timeline?

    I may have had a similar problem, my solution was to.. Users > Your Profile and uncheck "Post an article to my Facebook Timeline after it is public."

    Only posts to my FB Page now.

    Did you have Post using Timeline or not checked as well in the plugin setting pages?

    telwp where is that setting, on my FB page, personal account, or within WP?

    Within WP, log in as usual and it should be on your profile settings page (Users > Your Profile in left menu)

    I have everything unchecked except for the "Facebook Status on XYZ Timeline" (which is my website's FB page) meta box when creating a new post.

    I am panic'ing, I do not see any of these settings under Users>Your Profile in the left menu.

    I just see the URL to my personal Facebook page under "Facebook"

    WTF?!

    New Blog Post > Screen Options

    Ensure "Facebook Status on Your Timeline" meta box is checked to display

    Uncheck "Post to Facebook Timeline"

    Thanks Mike, I didn't even to think about it being a per post option.

    But how do I turn this off for ALL POSTS?

    (I am still very confused about telwp's response)

    I'm also running WP 3.5.1 and I don't have those options either. I would love to turn this off for all posts too!
