No..

The website or screenshot will share with Facebook and not the message. All other apps works fine..

Use your score variable as text in a text block and put the text block in the message.

I can't find the Share Message block after I installed and Enabled the Simple Share extension. My version is the Free Version. Is it only available after I upgrade to Studio?

Share to Facebook isn't working anymore...it was before, but now it seems like it's broken.

I'm using the latest Stencyl public build 8453.

UPDATE 1.8
- Add icon on blocks
- Download from GitHub.

See the first post, you have to download it from GitHub now.

If you already install a previous version 1.7 and below,  follow the instruction on this page how to update the extension https://github.com/byrobingames/simpleshare/blob/master/README.md#how-to-install

iOS Facebook sharing is broken. Haven't tested on android yet.

When I choose the Facebook option within the share options nothing happens.

I got the share block to show on the Free version, but the function doesn't work properly when being tested. It does open up the share option and take the screenshot, but it doesn't show the message and it doesn't auto open the URL that was indicated.

Must I upgrade to the Studio or Indie version to get it to work?

Thanks!

Can you show me your code example, and with what app do you want to share it? Facebook/Twitter, etc.

If you try to share with facebook, please read the first post,

It seems that a recent update to the Facebook application has replaced the in-built Facebook share activity with one that ignores status text .


Facebook's policies don't allow you to pre-populate status messages and require all content to be user generated - while I understand the intention behind this, I personally think it is kind of stupid in many cases - For example in my game I want to pre-populate the user's score, but now I can't, so the user is presented with an empty dialog box. I will probably simply remove the Facebook sharing option as no-one will ever use it now.

I closed and opened Stencyl and its working for Twitter. But as you indicated, it's not working for FB due to the policy. How can I set the button so that it straights away access FB instead of opening up a list of apps to share?

Thanks!
