FB Album not posting in order by filename#142

I’ve tried once already to post this bug but didn’t get a confirmation email from Publer. I scheduled 2 albums to be posted on FB over the weekend. They did and I’m so happy to be able to have this option. BUT all the photos are out of order. All the filenames are in cronilogical sequence. Now I have to go through both albums and fix this and that is a total waste of time. I’ve already done the first album that posted but the second one has almost 200 photos. There is NO easy way to rearrange the photos so they tell the story properly. Why did this happen. Honestly I LOVE the idea of working with Publer, and even paying for the service as there is some options I’d like to use that are not in the free version. But I can’t not work with Publer if this is going to continue to happen. Maybe I did something wrong when I scheduled the post. Can you please advise? Thank you!

This is unfortunately a known issue and there’s nothing we can do about it.

Facebook API (what we use to communicate with Facebook), does not give 3rd party apps the options to specify the order of the photos in the album.

It does so only when posting to the wall (timeline photos).

We will try to add a warning in the app to prevent undesired outcome.

Such a bummer. And undoubtedly I will not be able to use Publer as I had hoped. So sad.

After thinking about this…. when I post an album, it stays in order by filename. Just so bummed.
