    Failed posting to your Facebook Timeline. Error: {"message":"Can only modify connections owned by this application","type":"Exception"}

    I have re-installed several times, I am using facebook plugin 1.2.2.
    The account is connected.
    The debug page says it is allowed to post.

    Every time I publish I get this error.

    Can anyone be of assistance?

    Thank you.

    I traced the problem yesterday and submitted a pull request, so when they review hopefully they'll release a new version on here. In the meantime, just use the file from my repo:

    dlachapelle, The fix you posted is not working for my app. With it I simply get a different error. It now gives me "Failed posting to your Facebook Timeline. Error: {"message":"(#100) You haven't enabled Explicitly Shared for this action type (331247406956072) yet. Please update your Open Graph settings in the App Dashboard","type":"OAuthException"}"

    I've gone into the App Dashboard and fail to see a way to update the settings to comply. Any further clues are appreciated.

    Click on your action in the Open Graph App Dashboard, then enable: Tags, User Messages, and Explicitly Shared.
    Hit save.
    Enjoy.

    My apology, your solution is OK, had to go into Apps> THE APP NAME >Open Graph >Action Type: Publish and select the explicitly shared option.

    I'm not seeing the action you've described in my Facebook developers Open Graph Dashboard. Do you have an actual path you could post?

    tgrblogger, what are the steps to get Explicitly shared approved. Can I just copy and paste the my trigger steps for the publish action? It should be exactly the same, no?

    I logged into my account at https://developers.facebook.com/, selected Apps, then the app on the left that I wanted to work with. From there I selected Edit App button at the top right, then Open Graph on the right. I chose from the Action Type that I wanted to have shared, in this case Publish Article, and scrolled down to the checklist for optional capabilities and selected "Explicitly Shared: This action can specify the user explicitly shared an action." Selected "Save Changes" button at the bottom and was done.

    I see that it does work like that. My hang up was that when I did what you suggested, I got a message that says, This action type may have changes that have not yet been submitted for review. I then resubmitted it for review and they rejected it. I just now did only the part you suggested, saved it, and a test post published to my timeline, so thanks for clearing that up.

    They may have rejected for other reasons, there are a whole list of things, including compliance with breaking changes, that have to be met when you submit. But for now this works, so I don't bother to submit.

    I was hoping that dlachapelle would post a url or step by step for the process they recommended in order that I could take a look at it and see if it's more appropriate.
