    Hello.
    When shared from website, facebook only shows addtoany as the one who shared the post. It does not show who actually shared. It is a new bug.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Facebook does that now on a managed Facebook Page, unfortunately, which is frustrating when you have multiple people managing the Page. Hopefully Facebook fixes the issue.

    You can revert to the old way by setting an empty app_id in an AddToAny Template, as suggested to milosztor in this support topic:

    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/publisher-name-on-facebook/#post-9750487

    To use the old Facebook endpoint for your use case, add the following code to your “Additional JavaScript” box in Settings > AddToAny:

    a2a_config.templates.facebook = {
        app_id: "" // Use old Facebook endpoint & parameters
    };

    Facebook doesn’t document the old endpoint, nor provide all the parameters of the new one, so keep that in mind if/when you go to change Facebook parameters in the future. Hopefully Facebook simply resolves their “Published by” issue on managed Pages.
