Perfect Solution!

I tried a lot of alternatives and only this plugin helped me to achieve the solution to auto post on my facebook page with no issue at all!

Thanks you so much plugin developers! 🙂

Excellent Plugin

So far no issues.
This plugin , i had to buy the PRO version
(manage more than 2 social media sites with bulk upload.)
Worth the money.!
Recommended for anyone who wish to use buffer with multiple social sites, saves heaps of time.

Used to be good

I purchased revive old posts pro, then found this could do all that does, along with post to G+ via buffer so changed to primarily using this.

However since the recent update it only seems to be able to post to LinkedIn and facebook via buffer….

Either I need to change something or I’m back off to the competition I already bought.


This plugin works!

Buffer is an excellent tool to publish in main social networks and this plugin makes it so easy with WordPress.

Too bad…

The old version was useful and functional.

This new version only encourages to take the pro version. This lack of useful functions. The change (name and rules) was not sufficiently explained.

In short, I uninstall HYPE and back to the old version, too bad: /

Absolute premium – *Uppdated*

After about one month of regular contact with the devs of this plugin it now works just as I need it, and that thanks to the devs who took my feature suggestion and added it to the plugin.

My previous problem was that I needed a way to exclude posts that belonged to a specific category, even if they belonged to other categories I had deemed “shareable”.
It took a few emails before the specifics about the feature was ironed out, but then it was all quick work. I even got an email from them at 20:22 PM on New Years Eve telling me that a new version was ready to be tested for possible bugs. That’s dedication!

Now it all works just as I need it and I can save hours every week by completely automating the posting to my social chanels, complete with specific hashtags per blogg category, images and previews.

Great plugin

I’ve used Buffer My Posts for over a year. It has always worked flawlessly.

However, when it recently got updated to Hype (name change etc.) the crucial features disappeared.

·I can no longer get images with my tweets
·I can no longer exclude categories completely. Posts which belong in more than one category, where at least one is suposed to be blocked, are posted anyway

These where my two main reasons to use Buffer My Posts in the first place.
