    I started having this problem again starting last night and today it's no better. I'd say about 20% of my posts are blank. The last time this happened, (a few weeks ago), I could see the posting box was blank and if the item was a request I could simply reload and ask again. This time the posting box appears normal when I click Share, but the post shows up blank on the feed.

    A neighbor even has a blank post that she had entered text into.

    Same problem here. So far this seems limited to the Hill Castle parts requests. When posting to the feed, all that appears is my name, avatar, and the options to "Like", "Comment", or "Share"; nothing more. Same thing is happening when one of my neighbor posts her Hill Castle requests to the feed.

    It's not just Hill Castle requests; it's everything! Trees, blooms, butterflies, etc.

    Ok see the circled post. That is what I get sometimes. I posted that animal that wonders on the farm sometimes. How in the heck am I supposed to get people to click on that. I don't want them to share it. I want them to help. If it doesn't post then it needs to be fixed. And it ain't just that post. There are OTHERS!!

    How many folks are experiencing "Blank Shares" where you share something out yet Facebook/Zynga doesn't show what it is that you are sharing?

    (See Below)

    Hello Farmer Clyde and Sandy7226,

    I also notice this blank feed issue on my wall and as per checking, this seems to be a Known Issue at the moment. The Studio has identified that some posts show as blank when published to Facebook and players are unable to claim items or help each other because of this.

    Click the Fix It button on this ARTICLE to let us know that your account is affected. Our team is working on it so hang in there my fellow farmers! ;)

    Thanks for the link as I'm sure my "neighbors" will appreciate it.

    I tried "slowly" sharing items to no avail. By this, I mean, I'd harvest an animal pen, whait for the share popup, click share, then wait for the FaceBook popup and then click share.

    All to no avail. The first two were blank.

    Now, since they are into fixing stuff, how about fixing my Money Plant which was released on May 21st and is supposed to be good for a year yet somehow has managed to "expire" itself??

    White box problem STILL not fixed. So far I lost a Turbo, Egg, Gold Bunny Egg and my Vote post...thanks for doing nothing to fix this so far.

    (The Share boxes appear normal, with the expected pictures and everything when I click to Share an item, but they are posting as blank posts.)

    I'm getting the exact same thing - blank posts... Sometimes it takes, some times it doesn't - I never know UNTIL I go to the Newsfeed and see a lot of blanks...

    I hope it's ok to post this here, but Dirt Farmer has a workaround (the second one is what we need in this case). It's kind of annoying, but you can do it for the posts you really want to make sure get through. I went ahead and downloaded the app after losing a vote post last night:

    The situation is much worse than it was. I am now losing close to 50% of what I post to these white boxes. I have clicked that Band Aid thing already, but that's not getting me my vote, countdown and other posts that need clicks. The vote thing...not even clicking for neighbors helps. I had to buy the last one with FV cash. (Maybe that's the idea.) This is a good way to walk away from the game entirely. I don't want to click Share and then have to go check to see just what posted each time. Sure, this is probably a facebook issue, but this game is so dependent on facebook. Why create more and more items that require people to click when it all depends on the reliability of 3rd party where there is no control?

    Just lost the vote post and the Street Vendor thing...both of which I have to wait another 6 hours. How is anyone supposed to play this way, and why is this only certain accounts doing this?

    Vittoria, try Dirt Farmer's workaround (for important posts at least) until this is fixed. It's annoying but quite easy:

    I've been copying the urls using their Click Trap Remover extension, when I remember to do it before I Share.

    :mad: This has been going on long enough. It's not even mentioned in the known issues, yet I know they know there is a problem. I even clicked on the bandaid to fix it. FIX IT already.

    Just got it, watched the video, followed the instructions exactly, does not work.

    Fix it already, Zynga, the game is unplayable like that and the few active neighbors I still have (and good neighbors might I add), are dropping out of the game like flies. In the last week alone 3 of my best most helpful neighbors quit playing. I have greatly reduced playing time, with all the other stuff going on, pop ups, all the building stuff etc., this is the last straw. Fix it already !!
