I am getting the error referred to in troubleshooting FAQ 4.17. Facebook IS linked to Twitter but SNAP is not set to autopost to Twitter. I was not getting this error last week. Using plugin version 2.7.18.September 18, 2013 at 5:12 pm #22618
If you are getting this error then you are autoposting it twice.September 18, 2013 at 5:16 pm #22619DaveParticipant
It didn’t autopost. I got this message trying to repost, which also didn’t post.September 18, 2013 at 5:19 pm #22621
This message means that Facebook thinks that you already posted it to Twitter. We can’t know why Facebook thinks that.September 18, 2013 at 5:44 pm #22624DaveParticipant
I temporarily shut off Facebook autoposting to twitter, and was able to repost from WordPress to Facebook. The FAQ answer, however, suggests that I shouldn’t have to do this as long as I am not using SNAP to autopost to twitter.September 18, 2013 at 6:28 pm #22631DaveParticipant
Nothing was posted on twitter either.September 19, 2013 at 12:29 pm #22697DaveParticipant
Is this just me, or can anybody duplicate this? Set up is SNAP is posting to Facebook, and Facebook is posting to Twitter. SNAP is NOT setup to post to Twitter. Plugin version is 2.7.18. Tried update to 2.7.20, but that had other issues chronicled in another post in this forum.
Does not autopost or repost to Facebook and error log shows:
Array ( [pgID] => [isPosted] => 0 [pDate] => 2013-09-19 16:13:42 [Error] => [ERROR] (#100) The status you are trying to publish is a duplicate of, or too similar to, one that we recently posted to Twitter
Nothing shows up on either Facebook or Twitter. Troubleshooting FAQ entry about this (4.17 Question) says that:
“You need to either unlink your Facebook from Twitter or disable Twitter auto-posting from our plugin.”
Twitter auto-posting is NOT enabled in your plugin on my site, so if something has changed, at the very least the FAQ entry should be updated to reflect this.
But more problematical is that, if this can not be fixed, then your plugin is unable to post to Facebook if Facebook->Twitter link is enabled on Facebook. As it might be the case that one would want this link enabled on Facebook (to handle auto-posting of things other than posts coming from WordPress), effectively your plugin becomes of no use in this scenario.
Thanks for looking into this.September 19, 2013 at 3:13 pm #22705
It really doesn’t matter if Twitter auto-posting is enabled or not. This error has no relation to our plugin at all.
For some reason Facebook thinks that you already posted this message to Twitter. We canâ€™t know why Facebook thinks that.
You need to contact them if you are sure that your Twitter account does not have this message already.June 15, 2014 at 10:11 pm #219866ZeeParticipant
What is the point of SNAP if it can’t auto-repost a previous post? Isn’t one of the features of the plugin? So no, it’s not just the problem of the social media provider, but also of the plugin being advertised as such.June 18, 2014 at 11:14 am #220608
SNAP IS NOT a BLACK HAT tool that could be used to bypass the rules of any social network. We never said otherwise and this is the first thing in our FAQ.
Please don’t mess legal re-posting which our plugin does fine and SPAM. Our plugin IS NOT A SPAMMING tool.
