Hi - I have the 10-day trial and keen to test this out for a big event in a couple of weeks.

I have set-up a posterous site to capture all of the photos from the sparkbooth, and I am trying to login to Posterous via Sparkbooth (in the Upload section).

So far, this is not working well.

I enter my posterous email address and password then press the button. The button "greys out" while It thinks about this for a short while then the button become live again, but with no successful login. Repeated button presses just produce the same loop.


Many thanks,

    It looks like Posterous changed the authentication method. I'll release
    a fix for that next update.

    Hi John Thanks for this. I am trialling your product for a big event in just 2 weeks. I think I have 7 days left of the trial. Will this update be released before my trial expires, somI can see ifnit will work for me for my event?

    I can't say for sure, but I can email you once it is done.

    Ok, John. That's a pity. In that case, can you extend the trial if you don't manage to update in the next 7 days? I really need to trial uploading to Posterous successfully before II buy. All being well, I'll be delighted to invest in a licence.

    Best wishes

    Sorry, Adobe doesn't provide a way to extend the trial. But you can
    just install on another computer or another user account to get
    another trial.

    Hi John - Thanks for this.

    Afraid it still does not login to Posterous. I even tried on two machines with the same result. I then tested login to my posterous account, and all was fine.

    One thing I notices was that login to my posterous account direct requires my account name, not my email address. I did try both in your sparkbooth login to Posterous, but neither worked for me.

    Hope this helps you track down the problem.

    Looks like the Posterous API service is down.

    Hi John. Have been trying this off and on the past couple of days but never yet been able to login via Sparkbooth. Login direct to posterous account is always ok though.

    Any ideas?

    thanks a lot,

    Hey John

    Thanks for this BUT it spontaneously started working! Hurrah! :) Bought the full licence today. Thanks a lot for all of the support this part couple of weeks.

    Now I just have to figure why it won't print to my Polaroid PoGo printer (via Blootooth) but will start a new thread for that!
