    Hey folks,

    currently getting more engaged with FL. I am experiencing the following problem for multiple accounts (not all):

    Set FL to upload one picture per day with a description in spintax to make it unique. On day 1, it uploads picture A. On day 2, picture B. On the third and fourth day, it uploads pic A and B again, followed by C, D, C, D and so on. Did anybody else have this issue and knows a workaround?

    You didn't delete what is under 'shared photos' in scraped results/data did you?

    I did not scrape anything as I assembled the picture sets myself. No results to delete there.

    OP did you make a separate folder for each account? What I did is for each account I have separate folders for each account to upload pictures. I never had any problems like you did.

    In example:

    Fitness account 1: Fitness pictures 1.
    Fitness account 2: Fitness pictures 2.

    ect ect.

    FL logs each photo it has uploaded into that folder with its path. If the photo is still in the folder you created and the log is deleted, it will upload the same photo again. It's worth to take a look in that folder. It should contain all the photo's path it has uploaded.

    I did half a day ago, support did not reply yet.

    I checked the logs, it just uploaded the same pictures twice. Got no explanation for this. :(

    It seems the photo uploading is a bit flakey. Once I had it stop randomly and didn't resume until I changed to another folder.

    @OP, with 150 accounts I would use a web service that can schedule your posts for uploading. There's a few of them if you search on google.

    Was never a fan of FL's photo sharing feature as I found it quite buggy.

    Thanks, I've tested many services and FL has more of a set-and-forget option, most others need constant care.


    Got rid of the bug after I reinstalled my VPS. Did not catch the problem but until now it runs like it is supposed to be.
