    Hi Folks,
    Ok so I'm pulling my hair out with this one !

    I have an app that currently posts automatically to a Facebook Page without any issues...

    However I just acquired a Facebook Group and I've searched for answers or almost a week an nothing works.

    No matter what I try I cannot get the publish_to_groups permission to show up when I use explorer to generate an access key, despite the user account being an admin in the group.

    I have also tried creating a linked page, completed the process using the Create Linked Page button,
    yet it doesn't show in the linked pages...

    I'm close to drop kicking the laptop out of the window

    Can anyone please offer some assistance ?

    Hi, yes, this might be tricky.. The last time I was looking for a solution for this was to post the content to Summit's FB group with a software I use to post content to all our social accounts with 1 click.

    I believe I did find a solution here: https://support.vistasocial.com/hc/...507-Connecting-Facebook-Group-to-Vista-Social

    .. should have an answer for you

    did this help?

    Best! H

    p.s. shameless plug: you are most welcome to join London Domain Summit's FB group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/londondomainsummit :)

    Yeah this is whats driving me nuts..
    There are other apps I can use to sort of do the job.
    The issues I have are :
    1 ) If their apps work .. why wont mine.
    2 ) The way my content is pulled and formatted from json data prior to it being posted may not work with other apps..

    I'm just getting frustrated because I have followed every example how to set the app up for group posting yet nothing is working... it works posting to my page but not the group.

    Think this may have to be a temporary solution while I try and figure it out
    Thanks :)
