Get post FB Pages (public pages) not displaying most recent posts

Hi there,

I am trying to set up my page to like, share, and follow posts from local artists and help market them. So far I have been able to watch posts, but when I do that it only gives me posts from the very beginning of the page an no matter how I set up the filter for date creation I can’t get it to give me something from this year.

My workaround was to “get posts” Module, which gives me the most “recent” post but I notice that whenever an event is posted for some reason when I run the scenario the event post magically “doesn’t exist” within make.

It’s incredibly frustrating, to say the least. To add to the frustration I can’t figure out how to format the date-time function to only get me posts that are posted “today within the last 6 hours.”

Does anyone have any experience with this or know a work around?

Hey @AtomicNick, nice to meet you. :slight_smile:

Have you tried to right-click on the “Watch Posts” module and adjust its “Choose where to start” setting? Most of the time, this solves this kind of issue (based on my experience). You can set a specific date there where you want the module to start looking for new posts.

About formatting the date & time value, have you already tried using the formatDate() function first? I also noticed in the screenshot you shared that you are using “Time operators” in the filter. You can try to switch to using “Datetime operators” which is more robust (in my opinion).

I hope this helps.
