Facebook is a pain in the bleep bleep proverbial

The thing is that they demand all your apps refresh and resubmit approval every so often. That means us artists setups just stop working

and because everyone puts them on at different times, they are all kicked off at different times, and there is absolutely NO way to let people know, because FAA don't know

If you delete and replace as per my instructions, it DOES work unless Facebook are just having one of their 'we aint going to post anyone's art at present because too many people have already' days

If they just give you a number, I CAN SORT THAT yayyyy... just give me the number

Otherwise you just have to wait patiently til they take the lock off


Please log into FAA and disable both FAA apps

Then, remove the app from your Facebook Pages


Go to your main homepage and see APPS on the left menu.


On your FACEBOOK page, go to EDIT PAGE
On the edit page see the tab for APPS


Then, Make sure you are logged into Facebook as you, not as your page, and come back to your BEHIND THE SCENES | Facebook Application and enable the application again, Middle one (FB personal profile) and then the right one (FB page) If it does not popup, use a different browser and make sure your popup blocker is not enabled, or any ad blockers

The profile side must be enabled as well as the page but, you may turn off postings to that page in your default settings, once the application is all working

Hi Beth!
I've been a member of FAA about a year now and am just discovering some of these great discussions! I'm a slow and distracted learner.. Thanks for this discussion! It has some invaluable information that I will continue to refer to. Having a great need to get my art out in the world, (like us all), this really helps me see FAA as a great tool, in multiple ways, to make that happen. Thanks for posting such an infomative and helpful FAQ's1


You are very welcome, lady of the MOST excellent name :)

What about about like how to cancel POD if not interesting in 30 day trial?


email accounts at and they will cancel it. Make sure you let them know what you want cancelled.
If you want to close your account at FAA totally, even the free one, email the same address (subject: account cancellation) and they will take everything off for you.

This is on the actual site FAQ page at which is for all the gallery stuff

Hi Beth,

Do you know if anyone else has had this problem loading headshots: I delete the current image, no problem there. I can upload the correct photo, everything seems fine, I hit Okay... and the Old Photo appears again! I have gone in and out of the website to make sure I am properly deleting the old photo, but when I upload a different photo, the old one comes back!



Yes, it is your cache on your computer.

Here are a couple of quick methods for seeing it imediately...

1. Go off the page and empty your browser cache. When you go back you should see it.
2. Hit F5 a couple of times. You should see it.
3. Right click on the image and View Image, refresh that page, hit your back button and hit refresh. You will definitely now see it.


(Have added this to the Images menu above :) )

I found a number of fineart emails in my spam folder today - and some from people I've talked with before. As I normally just delete that folder every day or two, I cannot go back and check it. It just so happenned today my sister sent something and I finally found it there. If anyone emailed to me and didn't get a response, I apologize. I'll try to fix it.

I was able to upload a new headshot but only the large logo was updated, not the small logo. Any suggestions?


Glad it all helped Hollie ;)


It is updated, it will show soon.,.. its just your cache not showing it on your computer

I get this 'OOPS' note above when I try to add there is no fee to the registration fee box when trying to add an event. I started with the word, 'NONE' and received this notice. I have tried multi-times with X,XXX.XX and each time is rejected. I've even tried 'copy and paste' with only the 'OOPS' notice. How can I SUBMIT my event?


Did you try not adding ANYthing?


Actually Andee, I worked so hard on that one I have not the heart to not use it. Also people ask questions there and I answer there so I am going to keep using it for now and just keep adding to it

I am curious about the 30-day return policy. I had a greeting card sale on 7/12, and then was paid for it on 8/15. On 8/25, it was returned with the comment returned within 30 days. I don't understand the math!

Boo hoo!!!! I just updated my Fine Art America Blog to add a page that would link up to my latest regular blog post ... but when I did, the original FAA blog I created (sole purpose was to direct folks to my regular blog) went off to see the wizard. I had no idea that adding a new page / announcement meant the older page would disappear.

Can the original page be recovered ... and if so ... how do I avoid this in the future?

And oh by the way, as long as I'm trying to self-promote, here's a link to the regular blog:

thank you kindly ...

I am trying to globally change my prints to include the watermark. It only prints on new uploads. How can I get it on to older images? Please help!

Hello! The social media icons on the profile page under "Following/Follow" - are those customization links to go to the artist personal/business pages? If so, how does one customize them? If not, I'm assuming add links in bio section and use these great instruction



Adding a new blog post here does not cause the old one to go away, it creates a new one...... What you done to it ? ;)

Christy Watermarks are put on at upload and so you would need to reload the image to add or remove. If this is how you want them in future, do not forget to change your DEFAULT SETTINGS

Another Christy? :D they are not to your pages there, they are to like your page here using those medias... it appears on your pages somewhere over there but hidden away *sigh* add your own links and yes, my html cheat sheet is great for that... add to your biography

I think it's actually better to group them. The human brain doesn't work that way, a list like that bores it.


BUMP just adding things about the new sites now

How do I make the search term I typed into the box go away? Every time I delete it, it returns.
I'm done with "searching" and now I just want the discussion page to go back to normal.


Press the grey X beside it to the left

I just tested it and it is working so give that a go


I have added the Facebook instructions to the bottom of the top post. I would be ultra grateful if you established members would point newer members in this direction :D

I have followed directions for putting a link to others sites I have (FB, Twitter, Pinterest) on the BIO/ABOUT sections. Sadly the directions for how to do it so it opens in a new window/tab instead of leaving FAA or AW did not work. The directions DID work for putting clickable HTML links that take visitors away from FAA and AW, but that is not what I want to happen. I hope someone can help me to remedy this problem. Thank you.


Which page isn't working and I'll fix it

Ie which of my pages?
