My cross post zap from one Facebook page to another only shows a link to the OTHER post. Is there a way to modify it so that if I post an image or video it ACTUALLY posts on both pages instead of posting just a link on the 2nd page?

Hi @dmotel!

Thanks for sharing the video, could I ask if there will always be an image in the post? If that's the case then you need to use the action Create Page photo. The Create Page post action will only really work with text and links, it wont be able to add a photo to the post.

When you use the Create Page photo action, there's a field to upload the image. In the New post to your timeline trigger, you'll see there's a field that has any images in the post, so you can then add them into the image field in the action.

I hope that helps, please let me know if you have any questions!

Hi Doug,

Happy to help! A couple of questions to help us work to resolve this:

Would you mind sharing the fields that you're getting from the Facebook trigger? Also, is the first Facebook page post being made by a zap?

Thanks!

I am wondering if you could look at this screenshot: https://www.loom.com/share/764c5536738742fcb006238e6b237414

I am trying to make it so that when I post on THIS facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/mrdougmotel

my post also goes to THIS page I am admin for: https://www.facebook.com/siteoptimized/

But I am just very confused about all of the options.

Please help??
