Here is how my issue breaks down. I am using WP Autoblooged plugin to auto-post images to my Pinterest blog category. My plan was to have SNAP auto-post these same images to my Pinterest account. Apparently this has been to much to ask for, for the $50 that I paid for this script. I have the latest API version, 2.85. I opened a ticket with support 5 days ago and he has been talking me around in circles, giving me canned and/or short responses to my detailed and thorough explanation of my issue and how it came to be. I have been respectful, civil and polite to support however these non answers are killing me. I would just like to get the thing working.
Twitter and Facebook successfully post to their respective properties more or less. However, Pinterest never does. Here are the three scenarios for posting that I get from Pinterest:
1. All autopost initiated from WP Autoblogged get the “[Skipped]- Non-Human Post – Category Excluded” treatment. Every. Last. One. Of. Them.
2.Manual post by myself get the following error: -=ERROR=- Pinterest ERROR MESSAGE : | | | | | | Oops! | Our server is experiencing a mild case of the hiccups. | We’ve reported it to the team. | Try again? | | |
3.Test post from within Settings for my Pinterest account produce a successful image post to my Pinterest account in the form of a NextScripts logo.
Furthermore, in the Categories to Include/Exclude section in general Settings, all of my categories are CHECKED. Can someone help me please. Support does not seem to be focused on solving my issue.July 27, 2013 at 2:38 am #17151NextScripts.comParticipant
1. I am not sure what was not clear in my explanation that I need to repeat it over and over again.
You have 5 categories on your site: https://snag.gy/ivHOe.jpg
Your Facebook account is active only for 3 categories: https://snag.gy/u1D6c.jpg
Your Twitter account is also active only for 3 categories: https://snag.gy/p6fEd.jpg
Your autobloggin plugin is posting ALL your posts ONLY to the “Pinterest” category.
Pinterest category is EXCLUDED from both your Facebook and Twitter accounts.
That’s why you are gettomg messages like
[2013-07-25 14:47:13] – [Skipped]  – [Non-Human Post] – Individual Category Excluded – Post ID:(884)
How else I can explain that? You are posting to the excluded category, so plugin tells you that category is excluded and not autoposting there, because you asked it not to autopost there.July 27, 2013 at 2:50 am #17153NextScripts.comParticipant
2. We have a very useful FAQ page. This problem is described there: https://www.nextscripts.com/support-faq/#q61
In other words: “Pinterest hates when people submit some garbage with a lot of links”
Your Pinterest message format is set to: %TITLE% – %IMG% – %EXCERPT% – %SITENAME%
This produces what Pinterest considers as “Spammy looking content” and you are getting “Our server is experiencing a mild case of the hiccups”
If you try to change this to something much less spammy like just %TITLE% – it does work:
