Solution for Facebook posts stuck due to links

Updated February 13, 2023

Those using in their Enhance, whether using the combination of or using the RiteKit Package, may see that posts queued to be published to Facebook pages are getting stuck. (We are too.)

Note that for links shortened with, Facebook and LinkedIn will not accept them. This is beyond our control; FB and LinkedIn are now blocking all short links created of full URLs. So, if using RiteForge, RiteBoost for scheduling posts, we suggest that you do not shorten links for posts you schedule to LinkedIn or Facebook. If just using, even with custom subdomain, please use them in Tweets, emails, IG comments - and everywhere else - just not in FB or LinkedIn.

Facebook is becoming increasingly cautious about URLs in Facebook posts, particularly when scheduled from any third-party software product. is no exception. Here's how to deal with this:

Deselect Place my ad on links for Facebook. If you are okay with not advertising with your URLs when you share to Facebook, there is an easier option. Use in your Enhance with posts going to Pinterest, LinkedIn and Twitter, but only for Facebook make a "For Facebook" Enhance Preset here, deselect "Place my ad on links" (and save):

For those with RiteKit Package or RiteBoost, in your RiteBoost Bulk Creator automation dashboard's Formulas, Enhance with "Place my ad on links" deselected. As you can see below, you can get any other Enhance effects, but the URLs in the posts will not be shortened, and Facebook should not have a problem with them:

If you go with option no. 1, other than your login social profile, the easiest way to delete scheduled posts is to remove the social profile in RiteKit Settings, remove the social profile with the X beside it. Add it again, and create and schedule new posts after setting up your custom domain.
