Mention in stories

Post by riseNgrind » Fri Jul 10, 2020 3:26 am

Creating help thread for story mentions. I want to mention a list of 1000 users in stories. I want to mention 10 per story until none are left. What are the steps to do this?

Firstly have you been able to send a @mention and get the notification?

Notifications for story mentions are received in your INBOX.

So create an IMAGE UPLOAD action, check STORY, and set the caption as

@profile1

where profile1 is another of your accounts.

Then wait a minute after sending and run a scrape INBOX action for profile1

This is working for me, but you said it wasn't for you. First lets confirm that, then we can talk through auto mentions / caption mentions.



--------------------------------
There are couple of automention tutorials, maybe not for story post, but auto mentions (caption mentions) works the same for comments / post images / post stories / repost.

but you get the same results as searching google, just without the offers of cracked versions of the software (thanks google)

I have not yet been successful at receiving a notification in my DM. I am specifying users in the “specify users” section of the caption mentions, selecting post as story, and running the operation. The story is created but none of the users I specify are ever mentioned

Oh I used bulk caption uploaded and FINALLY got a caption mention in my DM. It was unclear, I was using “caption mentions” this while time and trying to specify a user that way.

Now if I have a list of 1000 users I want to target, how would I do this 10 at a time per story?

Yes as stated

So it implies the issue is coming from auto mentions.
Now if I have a list of 1000 users I want to target, how would I do this 10 at a time per story?
Please watch the tutorials and information on the feature. Hopefully it will clear up the issues you are having and saves me having to to just type out the same information.

IMPORTANTLY, do not forget to set the token in the caption that will be replaced with the mentions. All this is explained in the tutorial and will show you how the function works.

You can alwasy check through the real time log and ensure the @mention is set if using the auto mentions feature. If the @mention is there in the logs, it is working and any lack of notifications is coming from IG side, perhaps due to overuse which does happen. If no @mention can be see in the log, then the auto mentions function is not working (being used correctly and we can take it from there to identify the cause

Thanks Martin, I have gotten it to work now. Very nifty!

Is there a way to remove a 12 hour block I put on the account? I did “remove local blocks” but it still showing

How did you put a block on account?
If remove local blocks doesn't work (although I think it should) there should be another way, I can check if I knew how you did it.

Or, you could just reset the block, but set it to the past

You need to learn to use the AUTO MENTIONS module.

On the image tab
Load in your images
Check box POST AS STORY
Click AUTO MENTIONS button
On the left hand side, load in your 1000 profiles to mention
Specify to mention 10 per post ****

Then run your action. As always, perform a small test, maybe 2-3 images, with 2 mentions per post (so load in about 10 profiles). Then check your logs and you will see the mentions being applied



Regards,
Martin





*** 10 mentions per post is probably far too high, IG will block you from doing this at some point and will not allow you to use stories for a time period

Thank you Martin
You mean "caption mention", correct?

Did that and the same problem as friend above - it posts to story but won't mention
I tried mentioning my other acc but didn't get notification

Could you please take a look at logs maybe?
