Auto post to Facebook & Twitter, from scheduled WP,posts has stopped working

  1. dublinlitterblog


    Publicize to FB and Tw has stopped working as of a few days ago. Email publicize still works.

    I have tried
    1. disconnecting and reconnecting both accounts
    2. revoking WP access in both accounts, then recreating the connections in WP and re-authorizing WP in both accounts
    3. logging out from all 3 accounts, clearing cookies and cache, restarting browser, logging back into all 3 accounts, and then repeating the re-authorization process in step 2.

    However none of this worked. I cannot find any other suggestions in WP Support or in the Forums. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks & regards

    I am having the same issue. My post scheduled for this morning, Feb 19 @ 6:00am CST did not automatically publicize to Facebook and Twitter. The post was available in my RSS feed, and I saw it show up in Feedly (my feed reader) today as expected.

    Earlier this week, I had a scheduled post on Monday, Feb 17 @ 6:00am CST that successfully publicized to Facebook and Twitter. So it seems to have stopped working between then.

    I´ve got the same problem. Publicize not working.
    Have you got any clue about how to solve it?

  11. I have the same issue, and the only think posting the blog is one word of the caption. Thanks!

  12. I just want to be clear about something in case it's been missed by bloggers posting here. Scheduled posts do NOT actually publish until the first visitor to the site after the date and time scheduled triggers the publication.

    Hi timethief. I can't speak for anyone else, but all my scheduled posts are publishing on WP just fine.

    The problem is that they're not appearing on the connected platforms like Facebook or Twitter.


  14. @dublinlitterblog
    That's relevant information for Staff. Thanks for posting it.

  15. To update extra information that may be useful for Staff:

    I have had 11 scheduled posts publish successfully on the WordPress blog since 17th Feb, but 0 out of the 11 have been pushed to Facebook, Tumblr or Google+ (my only social networks on Publicize).

    However, I use to publish from WordPress to Twitter rather than via WordPress Publicize (due to needing images published to Twitter rather than full articles) and IFTTT has worked successfully during this period of time publishing all 11 posts to Twitter.

    I have disconnected and reconnected Facebook, and revoked access and allowed it again, and none of this makes any difference to Publicize working again.

    Going from the multiple complaints it seems that it is a Publicize issue with

    posts, where the scheduled post is publishing to the blog but then failing to send the post to any social media streams. There are also complaints on the forum regarding email notifications not being sent to subscribers when a post is published and this could also be (but not confirmed) because the posts may have been scheduled rather than published immediately .

    I hope this clear information about the problem helps a swift resolution. Many thanks to Staff for looking into it, and to Timethief for highlighting it to the correct people.

  16. Same issue for me. Scheduled posts not publicizing for Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr. Manual "publish now" posts will publicize. All posts successfully publish to my WP page, the only issue is with publicizing. Have tried disconnecting and reconnecting accounts. Thanks to those above for bringing it to the staff's attention.

  17. I'll join the party. Twitter, Google+ and Tumblr, but I believe the RSS feeds are working fine. I can't vouch for e-mail.

  18. Forgot to add, this is the site. My other site hasn't updated yet because it's a weekly site and this only started after my early Monday post.

  19. Same issue for me on FB and Twitter

  20. My issue started before Feb 17 as I asked for help the 14th. The publicize feature to FB is not working on any new posts, so the trouble is NOT JUST for scheduled posts.

  21. empleoarquitectos

    same for me!: since feb 17, scheduled posts, not sending to FB and Twitter, tried everything

  22. I recently removed the Facebook connection from my WordPress because my scheduled posts from WordPress were being sent to Twitter, and those tweets were then being sent to Facebook.

    Since I removed the Facebook connection, no scheduled posts seem to be getting sent. I've noticed a few others have been having this problem recently as well, and I hope there is a solution soon.

  23. Same issue here. I use publicize for Twitter; scheduled posts are publishing on fine but are not being sent to Twitter.

    I am able to go in to the post edit page once a post has been published, re-check the publicize to Twitter box, click 'update,' and then the tweet gets sent.

    I published 2 posts this week and neither of them automatically publicized to Facebook. They did go to Twitter and to the WordPress reader. I checked my sharing settings and it's still connected to Facebook. Please help!

    Hi everyone. We have rolled out a few changes recently to resolve this issue. If you have any more problems let us know.

  26. edoardofacchini

    It's the same for me on Linkedin, i see that i schedule the time to publish my post on Linkedin, when the post should be published I check on Linkedin and my post is not published.

  27. edoardofacchini

    My post on Twitter seems to work (publicize publishes it at the time scheduled), not on Linkedin

    Hi @edoardofacchini

    Something to be aware of is that scheduled posts do not actually publish until the first visitor clicks into the site, even though the timestamp on the post will still be what you specified.

    That first visitor clicking in is what triggers publication of the scheduled post, as well as sharing to any of your Publicize connections

    So in an instance where you schedule a post for 9:00, if no one comes to your site until 10:00, then that is when the post will be displayed on your site, as well as be publicized on social media.

    If you are at all concerned about your posts and shares going out at exactly the time you specify, the you can either visit your own site at that time (which triggers the post to publish) or switch to manual posting and/or sharing on social media.

    See: Schedule a Post

  30. Thank yous to jerrysarcastic and timethief!!

    My scheduled Weekly Photo Challenge was posted onto my blog and Twitter this morning! YAY!

    Now I hope my stats will keep climbing as they were before the glitch.
