    Hello BHW! I have submitted a ticket to FollowLiker and have been chatting back and forth the past couple of days. Haven't solved the issue yet so let's see if anyone can help.

    I've been using FollowLiker for a few months now. I have been only doing likes so far. I recently decided to also post pictures that include hashtags. FollowLiker is posting the pictures but with no hashtags or comments :(

    I have posted a few pictures with FollowLiker in the past and I don't believe I have had this problem before.

    The Help Desk asked me to create a Global Settings project... Did that... added the accounts.... added the pictures... and still, Followliker post the pictures but DOES NOT included my hashtags....

    If anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you BHW!

    more than likely either part(s) of your comment or the hashtags are getting caught in ig's spam filter, it doesn't even have to be an url, for instance words like free, giveaway, iphone or the combination of these can trigger the spam filter,but i guess nobody have a full list of these trigger words except ig
    if you want to submit your comments along w/ the pics, i'm afraid you need to test this for yourself
    try to use synonyms of the words or if there's an url, you should check that first, spin your comments, eventually it will work

    Well it looks like we might actually make some progress on this topic today.

    So to me, from these responses it seems like

    A) Its an account issue
    or
    B) Spam filter

    I didn't think it was a FollowLiker issue at all. Everytime I have a problem it always leads back to me doing something wrong, lol.

    So here's what I'll try and post results:

    I will try only using 1 instagram account with only 2-3 hashtags, non-spam related hashtags, and see what I come up with.

    Any other ideas would be greatly apprecieated! I would love to nip this problem in the butt today and post back successful results!

    Are you using the Photo folder so it randomly picks photo's to post or are you "adding" individual photo's in the caption field?

    well shoot..... I thought the only way to do it was to select the folder then add individual pictures with the caption... seems like it take forever that way so am i doing it all wrong?

    ((UPDATE))

    So here's exactly what I did... I have 10 pictures in my share folder now, and for each account I add only comments in the share picture settings and did not specify any specific picture to share. FollowLiker will now post pictures with the comments and hashtags... BUT........ Instagram is not allowing the pictures to show up in hashtag feeds and querys /:

    I'm assuming this now has nothing to do with FollowLiker. This is an Instagram issue. My pictures post, I can see them in my account with the comments and hashtags, which I use only 21 hashtags, but when I do a search for the hashtags my photo doesn't appear in the query feed.

    Anyone having this same problem?

    Bumping this for discussion, it's not an account problem.

    FL hasn't had a seachable hash in a long time.. it has been discussed with them over and over by many. If it was an easy fix.. they would have fixed it by now.. (they fix most issues that come up) you cant search by hash with grambr either.. IG blocks photos from being searchable when not uploaded from a mobile device...

    after I did some testing I found out that for me.. having the photos searchable just didn't help with any sig amount of traffic. just be glad you don't have to upload the photo manually and be happy..

    My 2 cents

    Yeah, I figured. Though they kept contesting with me that they are "investigating the issue" yet later they say "it has always worked", much contradiction here. Is there any workaround around this or does it just not work?
