Publishing to Facebook--Refresh Problem

  1. Didn't work for me.

    I followed the instructions above: disconnected from Facebook from the Settings>Sharing page, then reconnected.

    Went to make a new post, and the same message people have been reporting above was still visible.

  2. Hang about: yes, we seem to be back in business :)

  3. I was having an issue where it would post everything to my main profile and not my website's Facebook page like I had specified. I just disconnected and reconnected, so we will see if it continues to do it.

  4. Seems to be solved for me. "Your Facebook account is now confirmed. Publish away!" Hurray!!! and thanks. :)

  5. @msmusicmaker - check the options on the Settings>Sharing page, under the Facebook icon. When you click on that it comes up with the linked Facebook accounts, and you can then choose which one your posts are directed to.

  6. Solved for me too! Thanks.

  7. @stusshed yes, I had done that and it kept changing it back to my main profile. It seems to be working now that I disconnected and reconnected it though. Thanks!

  8. The refresh button worked but it still doesn't publish anything on my Facebook page...

  9. beau's instructions worked and the message has gone. but my Facebook page used to display a couple of lines from the posts but it doesn't now, it only displays the title and the link.

  10. I had this problem before WordPress told me to basically re-authorize the connection between wordpress and facebook ... basically disconnect and reconnect again ... it took a time or two if I remember but it worked !

    I am also having the 'refresh connection' issue. I refreshed yesterday when I scheduled a post, and it said I was connected to Facebook successfully. Today (21/5) I scheduled a post and was again asked to refresh the connection. Yesterday I also had the 404 error about 4 or 5 times, and then it seemed to rectify. Today, no 404 error. I have disconnected my Facebook account and then reconnected. I have also revoked WordPress access on Facebook and reactivated. Still getting the 'please refresh Facebook' connection message.

    As the post I published today was scheduled a week or so ago, I'm not sure if the posts that were scheduled since the refresh issue has appeared will actually post through Facebook.

    Do we have a fix yet?

  12. I am still having issues with Facebook. At first it would constantly ask me to refresh. Now it has stopped doing that and instead keeps posting to my main Facebook profile instead of the Facebook page that I assigned it to post to. Every time I go to sharing settings, it keeps asking me to choose which Facebook profile I want to post to. I specify my Facebook page and it starts working correctly for a few hours. Then it suddenly switches back to posting on my main Facebook profile again. Hopefully there will be a fix soon.

  13. im still suffering from this issue... any help? anyone?

  14. I am still dealing with the issue as well :(

  15. I tried the proposed solution (disconnect and then reconnect) and had the same issue recur.

  16. There appear to be lots of problems with posting to Facebook lately. If you try the full reconnect procedure detailed at http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#reconnecting-facebook including step 3 (removing the FB app), which is probably the most important step and it's not successful there are 2 alternatives aside from manually posting.

    Alternatively you can use Networked Blogs http://www.networkedblogs.com/ or RSS Grafitti http://www.facebook.com/RSS.Graffiti for posting to Facebook walls if you prefer. RSS Graffiti periodically checks the RSS/Atom feeds that you specify and posts any new entries it finds to the Facebook Walls that you specify. You can get any feed written on any wall (Facebook Profiles, Fan Pages, Groups, Events and Application Profile Pages). In fact, multiple feeds to multiple walls. You choose the combination.

  17. I am getting threatening comments, that are not even closely related to my websites content, and am unable to get into my website to moderate it for 2 days now. Since I see I am not the only one with problems, I think this needs to be escalated to a "scary problem." I'm a 73 yr. old woman and not in good health. My heart cannot take comments like this. Why can't I sign in as admin? I need to see what is going on on my website. And on memorial day no less! Someone is very angry with someone at these people michael kors below and I am sorry I have to post this here...cover your eyes folks because it has profanity, but this is the only way I can connect to my 2 websites at all, I am in Mexico...this site was set up in Mexico, please...what is going on??
    This is the exact content I need to have access to moderate:

    So why am I getting this and why can't I log on as administrator? I get a time out error since yesterday and cannot even go to my website as a public entity online, much less admin my OWN websites. Virus scan your computers, WordPress friends! I don't want this on my website!!!

    Glenda Packard/[email redacted]. Please help my daughter and I I think you have been hacked at wordpress.

  18. I had to sign up to WordPress again just to be able to ask for help. I apologize if this is the wrong section. I don't know much about forums. Please forgive for me the content above. This is the second nasty comment I have received and I just wanted to see if I can get some help here. My website is connected to my email but not to facebook.

    Thank you.

  19. "The server at changetheworldwithmusic.us is taking too long to respond." I've been trying for 2 days and I can go anywhere on the web except my websites.
    I think I've become a victim of website attack.

  20. Please remove content and contact me via my email address [email redacted]

  21. @changetheworldwithmusic
    We cannot help you here at all. You are posting to thw rong support forum. Neither http://www.cheapmichaelkorsstores.com is nor http://changetheworldwithmusic.us/ not a WordPress.com blog. We provide support here only for blogs being hosted by WordPress.com and no others. You must post to the correct support foum and that here http://wordpress.org/support/
    For clarity read > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  22. Still happening to me as well. Tried all the outlined steps, no go.

    Is there anything else worth trying? Does the support team need any information about my setup to try to troubleshoot this? Happy to help.

  23. I am having the same problem today. I can publish older posts to FB, but not the one just published today.

  24. BTW, regarding the request for help from changetheworldwithmusic, it is a wordpress blog: I copied this from the bottom of the page: Proudly powered by WordPress - and even opened up the link and it leads to wordpress.

  25. I couldn't log in due to server issues, so I had to come here in hopes for some advice. Which I didn't end up getting. Server was down for 1 week for me. My domain is changetheworldwithmusic.us. I was hoping to find advice on how in the forum on to log in as admin on that domain. It has been resolved, however, so thank you.

  26. I'm glad to hear that! Did you figure out a way to stop the offensive comments?

  27. Yes I installed a script that blocks them. Thank you. Excuse the sentence format. I was talking and typing at the same time. :)

  28. There appear to be lots of problems with posting to Facebook lately.

    after all this time i tried this again and it worked... thank you very much!!!

  29. @esquizonauta: I did try that twice, and it will not send my new posts to FB, but if I go back and send older posts there is no problem there. I did end up manually getting a short link and inserting it into FB.

    Thanks,I appreciate your help, and if you come up with a better solution, please let me know.

  30. My blog (stusshed.com) has gone back to asking me to click to reconnect to Facebook. Have gone through the steps that worked earlier a couple of times (worked temporarily each time), but is back to asking again.

    I've now turned off publicize to Facebook - too problematic and unstable.
