If you want to schedule many images at the same time, but you want to have more customizability then the batch publisher offers? Then the perfect solution is to mass import posts into the quick publisher!
To do this, we first need to create a text file containing all the information for our posts. Go ahead and create a text file. You will want to separate each parameter with "|", without the quotes.
The various parameters possible are mentioned here. The only parameter that is required is the image path. All the other parameters will revert to their default if not specified.
|Schedule date||Current date and time||2019/02/26 18:37|
|First comment||None||First comment text|
|User tags||None||username1, username2|
As for the Publish location, you can specify 3 different values. If a non-valid value is specified for the Publish location, it will simply use its default value.
- DirectStory, username
Now all that is left to do, is it place each scheduled post on its own line. Here is an example file you would have:
C:\path\to\image.jpg|2019/02/26 18:37:58|#cool @user||1|Story|Usertag_1, Usertag_2
C:\path\to\image.jpg||Cool image\nReally like it|||DirectStory, username|
C:\path\to\image.jpg||My Image|#my_tag #my_other_tag|||
C:\path\to\image.jpg|2017/12/26 18:00|Simple caption|#hashtag|0|Timeline|Usertag_1, Usertag_2
To import your file, simply click on the Import posts button and select the file you recently created.
