Facebook Awards postings

  • Updated 6 years ago
Whenever my photos win an award in contests, the automatic post on Facebook doesn't show the actual photos that won the award, but, just goes to my overall awards page, http://www.pixoto.com/jtlewis467/awards. I've seen other friends who when they win awards, the link on Facebook goes to the award winning pictures for that contest only. This is an example of a post on a friends FB page, My photo just won a 'Best of the Day' award on Pixoto.com! http://www.pixoto.com/awards/61083356.... This is a recent post for me, My photos just won 6 photo challenge awards on Pixoto.com! http://www.pixoto.com/jtlewis467/awards

Hello JT, I will have to ask for clarification about this. As soon as I get reply I will let you know.

Awesome, thank you. Just some of my friends keep asking about it as they want to see the exact photos that won.

JT, it messes up for me in FB too, but only when I win multiple challenge awards. Is that your case too? If I win Best of the Day etc, even if there's multiple images that have won, the link works. And if I win just a single challenge award, that link works too. Only when the FB announcement is for multiple challenge awards does the link just lead to my Awards page.

I don't know if that's your experience or not, of course... :-)

You know, Lenore, I think you are right. I think that's what it does. Okay, that makes some sense now. Kind of hard to give a link for multiple challenge photos.

Hello JT, it will happen only for challenges posting of awards on Facebook as we haven't built that functionality yet, I'm sorry about this.

Hi Jasenka. Thanks for the response. Just found that out a bit before your response. Now I understand the problem better, thanks for your time and effort on this. This would be something hard to build functionality for when dealing with multiple challenges.

I wonder if a separate FB posting could be done for each challenge, or would that be a nightmare for the programmers.......? :-)

Never mind that suggestion .... I just noticed that if you win multiple awards in a single challenge but only that one challenge, the link still leads only to the overall Awards page.
