Questions and Answers

Why is the caption not showing?

Hi, I followed all the instructions but I'm wondering why the captions are not pasting on Instagram.

Clear the cache in the app to see if that helps. The Repost App may have a bug so test with an app like InstaRepost in Google Play.

How come the original caption is not posting?

Want to post the original caption with my repost

It may exceed the 30 hashtag limit when you tried to repost with the caption. Update your Repost app because Instagram changed their policies for posting which meant Repost had to catch up with patches to the app.

Repost app doesn't include caption?

I have the repost app. I read your tutorial, but I can't get the CAPTION to repost with the video?. I have tried: Searching internet, reposting about five times, trying to find the app website. I think it was caused by: I must be missing something here

The Repost App is made by Regrann. They do have a support page and you can see in this tutorial from regrann how to paste the original comments before sharing after you have updated the app. Basically, you long press to copy then press again in the share field to paste.

You will need to update the app as stated in an above answer. Contact them by email at contact@nimmble.com. They are really good at responding and appreciate feedback.

I've figured out how to repost images but... It doesn't seem to repost the text that goes with the image. Is there a way to do this?

I've figured out how to repost images but... It doesn't seem to repost the text that goes with the image. Is there a way to do this?. I have tried: Copying the url and then using repost to well, repost it.. I think it was caused by: I have no idea, that is why I'm asking... Is there a way to post the text below an image, that the creator wrote, along with the image? How?

You copy and paste. Unfortunately, after Instagram changed their algorithms, they took out features previously cross platform like the captions or comments from original posts via Repost.

Great article. Re-post seems to be hung on an old re-post?

My re-post app is not pulling the latest Instagram feed. I am trying to re-post between three accounts that I have. It seems hung on an old re-post instead.

My Repost screens don't look anything like the ones you show here?

Including when I go to Instagram from the Repost app. When I initially open Repost, I get a screen that shows images I've already reposted. There is an Instagram icon at the top right of this screen, with an arrow pointing right. When I click on that icon, it takes me to Instagram. However, when I choose an image from there, it looks exactly the same as when I typically choose an image in Instagram. There's no blue Repost button anywhere. Any ideas? Thanks so much - Lisa. The images given of screens in this article, and the descriptions, do not match what I see when I am in Repost and then Instagram via Repost. The instructions given don't help me use Repost for Instagram. Thanks. I have tried: I have tried following all the steps given in the article. However, as I've said, the descriptions and images don't match what I see in Repost > Instagram. I think it was caused by: I have no idea; that's why I'm writing to ask for help with this.
