The answer didn’t, but I figured it out. It wasn’t publishing the link because I wasn’t the original author (even though I am the admin). I tried on a post I had written and it worked exactly as expected.
I’m guessing it’s a basic ACL check in the plugin, but it might be worth allowing admins to add links from old posts, even if the post wasn’t authored by the admin account.
Although you may be used to that the WordPress admin can do anything, the WordPress admin cannot add links to the wall of another user, because the WordPress admin may not have access to the Facebook account of the other user at all.
The only thing a WordPress admin can do, is check the option ‘Share with all users on this site‘, as you already discovered. Note that only one admin can check this option and if it is checked, only the same admin can uncheck it. If this option is checked, the plugin options will become unavailable to users other than the admin that checked this option.
If you use this option, you may want to select ‘Avatar of author‘ as link picture, so everybody on Facebook can see who wrote what.
