Howdy! I’m new to the Automators Talk forum, but have listened to Automators for years. It just occurred to me that this might be the right place that I could get help with a Make.com issue I’ve been running up against.
I use Make to cross-post my Instagram account photos and videos to my Micro.blog, which is where I’m trying to amass a complete collection of all the social stuff I do online. I’ve got it working pretty well with a scenario running every 90 minutes to check for new posts, downloading the media and caption and then using an HTTP request to post it to Micro.blog. Here’s a blog post that I wrote explaining how It all came together: How to Automatically Cross-Post from Instagram to Micro.blog with Make.com - HeyDingus
Here’s the issue: If I include more than one photo or video in a post, it only grabs the first one to post it to Micro.blog. And ideally I’d be able to automatically combine photos and videos in the same Micro.blog post, so that it’s a mirror of how it was originally posted to Instagram.
Since the OwnYourGram service became unreliable, this is the best solution that I’ve been able to come up with to automatically get my Instagram content onto my blog at my own domain. I think I’d know how to solve this using Shortcuts, but I’m not familiar enough with Make’s tools to get the job done.
Any help or suggestions this wicked smart community could provide would be greatly appreciated!
