Facebook
OAUTH Exception On Post To Page (7 posts)

    The publish to a facebook page functionality stopped working seemingly out of nowhere.
    We want our WordPress blog entries to be automatically posted to our facebook page. We are not using Open Graph functionality. When we make a WP blog entry, we receive the following error:

    Failed posting to [NAME OF FACEBOOK PAGE]. Timeline. Error: {"message":"An unexpected error has occurred. Please retry your request later.","type":"OAuthException"}

    I have tried reinstalling the plugin, re authenticating everything. I have tried using a different facebook application and a different plugin.

    Our workflow to install is as follows:

    Install Facebook plugin.
    Go To Facebook Plugin General Page
    Enter Application id: 515455018523569
    Enter Application Secret
    Go To Users -> Your Profile in WordPress
    Click on Associate my WordPress account with my Facebook account and allow new posts to my Facebook Timeline
    Return to Social Publisher
    Click on Allow New Posts to a Facebook Page
    Click on the name of our facebook page
    Make a test post (which fails)

    This used to work.

    Note that on the Social Publisher page, the Publish To My Timeline section still says: An author can associate his or her WordPress account with a Facebook account on his or her profile page.

    When this used to work, we were also publishing to our timeline, so that could be a symptom of the problem.

    Note that I also tried using Facebook Page Publish 2, to no avail.

    Please help me. This is very annoying to my clients.

    I am getting this too. It seems to be intermittent.

    It would really help if the plugin didn't register the post as posted to facebook, if there was a failure. It's not clear if resetting this field: post_to_facebook_page would allow it to be posted to facebook if one hits the 'update' button.

    This is still an issue...anyone have any solutions?

    This is the error:

    Failed posting to FACEBOOK PAGE Timeline. Error: {"message":"An unexpected error has occurred. Please retry your request later.","type":"OAuthException"}

    Bumping this. This is super annoying. I'm creating more and more wordpress blogs for people and this problem is persistent.

    Yup, I have the same problem too. I don't wabt to use the open graph option either. It used to work as JKnight describe, but now not anymore ... After I publish I saw no error and nothing happened ...
