    For past few days I haven't been able to add a link to my stories. I choose an image from gallery and I add a link it says "call to action added" but the image is gone. Anyone else running into this?

    Yes I had the same issue.

    Here is a work around (although it worked for me). Post a story with no link. Then create a new story and post it with your link in. I think IG is trying to stop people from adding links in stories too frequently.

    You can just delete the story with no link afterwards.;)
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 2

    Hi. Just add a story with no link. Then after adding your first one add another one with yoir link and it should stick. You can then delete the first one

    I shared a couple of stories without links and today I'm able to add links again. Might have to mix it up a bit, my previous postings were only story with links.

    I think it's a bug on android app.. I have another iOS device and there's no problem adding url in stories with the same IG account. It's good to have 2 different devices with different platforms. :D
