Hi Spark team

The new update won't allow us to post straight to our facebook page. Please advise urgently what we need to do.

Thank you

    Looks like Facebook changed the page permission name. Try updating to
    5.0.158 and see if that fixes it for you.

    I was just checking the Facebook uploader, and it looks like something has
    changed on their end. Looks like 5.0.158 won't fix the issue.

    It does not matter which version of Sparkbooth you are running, something
    on Facebook's end is preventing the photo upload. It has nothing to do with
    the Sparkbooth update.

    Figure out what is happening with the Facebook uploads. They dropped a
    permission in the Sparkbooth application that is blocking page uploads. I
    am waiting to hear back from Facebook for them to restore the permission.

    In the meanwhile, there is a work around that you can use to upload to
    Facebook pages. You can create a your own custom Facebook app. Here are
    instructions on how to do that

    Hi John

    I have downloaded the Version 5 link that you sent to me, however it is
    asking me for a License Key - It seems that we only have a License for
    Version 4. Does this mean that I would need to re-purchase for Version 5?

    I hope not. Please see below for my Info

    tem: Sparkbooth 4 Premium
    Item Price: $135.00
    Purchase date: Monday, April 4 2016

    Account Name: [email blocked]
    License Key: sp4-ecf50621-8111-49fa-a174-4176042bb3af
    Transaction Total: $135.00 via paypal
    Currency: USD
    Activations: 2 out of 3 activations remaining

    I see that it says Activation's 2 out of 3, however we have only loaded the
    Software onto 1 PC, Please advise.

    As I mentioned before it does not matter which version you use, Facebook
    uploads are currently broken on Facebook's end for Sparkbooth. So it does
    not matter if you use Sparkbooth 5. The workaround is to use a custom
    Facebook app.

    If you do want to upgrade to Sparbooth 5, you can upgrade at

    Hi John

    Yes, thanks, I also got your message about that loop hole that I could use
    in the mean time which I will try.

    Even though the Facebook issue won't work on Version 5, I'd prefer to
    upgrade so that I have the latest software any ways.

    Looking for to your response in the near future about your dealings with

    Facebook restored the permissions, page uploads should be working now. You
    may have to restart Sparkbooth.

    1. Make sure you have updated to the latest version, 5.0.159 or 6.0.64.
    2. Try deleting the Sparkbooth app from your Facebook account and then
    re-sign into your Facebook account from Sparkbooth

    Hi John

    Hope you well. When I upgraded to Sparkbooth 5, I had no idea that
    Sparkbooth 6 was coming out the next week - Any possibility that we can
    exchange my Sparkbooth 5 for 6 - Then you deactivate my 5 Licence key and
    give me a new one

    Please let me know if this is possible as I dont want to spend another
    unnecessary $70

    Kind Regards

    If you purchase after January 15th, 2018, your license key will already
    work with Sparkbooth 6. What is the email address of your license?
