New Images Don't Post To Fb Fan Page.

I hadn't posted new images for some time. When I noticed that they were not posting to my fan page even though I had turned on that option when I posted, I googled the problem. An old discussion thread mentioned you might have to turn the enabling off and back on in behind the scenes FB section. Anyway in the process of turning FB enabling on and off, I now find that when I try to enable FB fan page it takes me to an option with the name of my fan page, but when I select it, a message says faa is not allowed to do this. Help!

You will have to do it manually now. Facebook has made changes.

We need a sticky post explaining this.

I think this is the 4th or 5th thread in a couple of days asking about this.

Unfortunately that is now not going to come back more than likely, as Facebook, still reeling from their privacy issues, have rescinded the rights for us, (in fact all sites), to automatically post for you

Facebook’s developer’s blog says that no new apps will be allowed to do this, and existing permissions were to be revoked in August.



The publish_actions permission will be deprecated. This permission granted apps access to publish posts to Facebook as the logged in user. Apps created from today onwards will not have access to this permission. Apps created before today that have been previously approved to request publish_actions can continue to do so until August 1, 2018. No further apps will be approved to use publish_actions via app review. Developers currently utilizing publish_actions are encouraged to switch to Facebook's Share dialogs for web, iOS and Android.


This means they require people to actively share their work manually.

I am not sure what will be happening with our app here as yet. They approved us as a site allowed to add the shop to our FB pages but are still throwing up an error when we try to link them.

We will let you know when we do.

I hope that helps
