    I’m on Workbooker 2.1.13. When user1 writes a post, and then user2 updates that same post with a Facebook Post Attribute Line and schedules it for publication at a later date, the link is posted to Facebook but sans Post Attribute Line. If user2 post “immediately” as opposed to scheduling, the Post Attribute Line is carried over. Sure would like a fix for this.

    There were problems – can you upgrade to 2.1.18 and see if it still does it?

    I’ll try that .. I’ve had this problem for the past 2 years and wished every upgrade that it’d be fixed. It’s this an issue that specifically supposed to be addressed in 2.1.18?

    Its something that kept breaking – its all to do with layering of options on top of each other and making sure things happen in the right order.

    It wasn’t specifically fixed in 2.1.18 but I know it was broken in 2.1.13 and was fixed after that (but got missed off the list of fixes).

    Just scheduled a post with 2.1.18, same problem. So it’s not fixed.

    I tested it with 2.1.18 – edited the Post attribute line when I was creating the post. Scheduled it and it worked fine, but I’ll try again.

    So you are creating the post and not touching the post attribute line
    Then you are saving it as a draft
    The someone comes along and changes the post attribute and then schedules the post.

    I still have the same problem in 2.1.18. Steve, it doesn’t sound like you entirely tested the scenario. There are two users. This happens with user1 creates the post … then user2 updates the post and schedules it for publication.

    If I do this all with one user, there aren’t problems.

    OK I’ll double check it – and its the second user who is changing the post attribute line?

    I’ve tested it – second user edited the post attribute line on the post itself and that was the one that was used when it published.

    Well I guess it’s a bug that’ll never be fixed, b/c the post attribute line gets deleted for me every time under the described scenario. Sucks.

    Just to confirm that you are changing it on the Edit/Add Post screen and then clicking on Schedule post…

    When you go back to the post on the Edit/Add screen has the Post attribute line been reset or does it retain the modified value?

    The post has no value for “post attribute” from user1. Then user2 logs in a adds a post attribute and schedules the post for publication at a later date. When the post publishes, the “post attribute” is deleted from the post and the facebook post just includes a link to the WP post.

    So you’ve set the Post attribute to be totally blank? Where have you set it to blank? In the Blog level or the User level on the Wordbooker Options page? If user2 goes in and sets the post status and saves the draft and then goes away from the page and comes back has the post status been blanked again?

    Ok, let me try explaining this whole thing again.

    1.) User1 writes a WP post. No value entered for “post attribute”.
    2.) User2 updates that same post with a Facebook Post Attribute Line and schedules it for publication at a later date
    3.) When the post publishes, the Post Attribute disappears and the facebook post has no post attribute text.

    Alternatively:
    1.) User1 writes a WP post. No value entered for “post attribute”.
    2.) User2 updates that same post with a Facebook Post Attribute Line and posts immediately
    3.) Everything works fine.

    Can you clear down the diagnostic logs, set the level to Show Everything and then do a post and post the resulting trace….. but not in here as they don’t like long posts.

    I’ve updated the diagnostics to show everything but I won’t be able to test until I post again for a few days as this is a live site. I’m not sure where you want me to post the long long results. What does “do a post and post the resulting trace” mean?
