Can't replace images on cloned LinkedIn posts

Highlighted
Occasional Contributor

I cloned a LinkedIn post and then tried to replace the 3 images it had. I can't!

 

Every time I click replace I get the image selector pane and whatever I select, the app keeps telling me "You can’t add more GIF files or videos to posts that already have images, a video, or a GIF file."

 

I also see that my post has 3 images and I can't even delete them from the post without deleting the underlying files in the file store.

 

Cloning FB and Twitter posts works fine.

 

Help!

Ok. LinkedIn ain't FB or TW. Just sayin'. Smiley Happy

 

Linkedin in particular buffers posts (re-posts, whatever), so ... you may have great difficulty trying to modify anything identified as 'previously posted'.

 

Solution?

 

Create a new post from an incognito browser session. If that doesn't work, wait 24+ hours.

 

Sorry. We're aware of no better options when posting against LinkedIn either directly or indirectly via any platform (HubSpot included).

 

Help answer your question? If so, remember to accept this solution now.
