    Plugin will try to post to whatever URL you enter in the “Your Facebook URL” field.

    The description of the field says:

    Your Facebook URL:
    Could be your Facebook Profile, Facebook Page, Facebook Group



    I updated my previous post – no workie!



    In case it’s of any relevance, the profile and the group url are almost identical.

    What exactly is not working?

    Are you getting any errors?
    Please check your Log/History tab and let me know if you have any errors there.



    Thankfully I unearthed the old group url, the one it used to have before I gave it a slug and it works!

    I wasn’t getting any errors, SNAP was simply posting to the FB profile page instead of the FB group.
    That’s when I was using the current group url, like so:

    • http//

    Once I entered the old style url:

    • it worked properly and posted in the group.

    Me too!

    When I setup an account to post to here…

    The posts show up on this page

    Can we sort this out in SNAP?
    …or @kalligator: how did you find your group’s /groups/NNN URL?

    I found my group’s ID — another support thread mentioned searching for the right “group_id=” is the group page’s HTML source.

    But, when I updated the SNAP account and tried to report an item, I get…

    Array (
    [pgID] =>
    [isPosted] => 0
    [pDate] => 2013-06-15 19:13:48
    [Error] => [ERROR] (#200) Posts where the actor is a page cannot also include a target_id


    From the author’s updated Troubleshooting FAQ:

    4.12. Problem: I am trying to post to a Facebook group and I get this message.
    Reported Error: (#803) Some of the aliases you requested do not exist:
    (another possible error: (#200) Posts where the actor is a page cannot also include a target_id)
    It’s a known bug in Facebook API that breaks posting to groups using non-numeric names.
    There is a simple workaround for it.
    Please use the numeric URL of your group in the plugin settings,{group_id}/
    You can find your Group Id in your source of your Facebook Group page by searching for group_id=
    You will need to Re-Authorize your account after you update the URL.


    Works fine after I re-authorize the SNAP account after setting the URL to the group’s ID.
