Connecting Your Accounts

Accounts is located in your Social Preferences. To access Social Preferences, click on “Social” in the main left navigation and then click “Library”. Once you’re in the Social Library, click on the “Preferences” button near the top left of your screen. This will take you right to Accounts.

Accounts

The first section of Social Preferences is Accounts. Here you’ll be able to link your Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest to Pixrit. *You do not need to connect all your accounts for Pixrit to work. 

A few things to note!

Be sure to disable any pop up blockers if you experience trouble logging into a social account. If you happen to log in to the wrong account, just click disconnect and try again.

Why you need an email address for Google+?

Google+ posts are sent to you via email because Google needs an app to be live before they can consider it for API connections. Since Pixrit just recently went live, we are still in the approval process. In the future, you’ll be able to auto-share to Google+ just like Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. The address your images are sent to can be changed from your login email (set by default).

Why you need an email address for Instagram?

Instagram does not allow third party sharing. It is against Instagram’s TOS and anyone who “hacks” around this runs the risk of getting their account banned. So we email you the resized image and information to get around this. The address your images are sent to can be changed from your login email (set by default).

 


I Can’t Connect To A Social Network

If you’re having trouble connecting to a network, try these steps:

  • Make sure you have all pop up blockers disabled. Some browsers have them built in, so disable all of them for Pixrit.com.

When you’re connecting your social accounts, the social networks present pop-ups that will allow you to connect to Pixrit. If those popups are blocked, you won’t be able to connect your account. 

  • Make sure your subscription allows for all the networks you’re trying to connect. Free Trial Users and the “Elite” subscription get all networks, but “Studio” and “Pro” do not.
  • Then, do a hard refresh of the page by pressing ctrl + refresh (mac) or ctrl + f5 (pc) and try to connect to the network again.
  • If issues persist, try clearing your browser’s cache and trying again.
GENERAL FIXES

Anytime you get a popup message that says a post failed to send, the first thing you should do is check your accounts. The most common issue is an account became disconnected.
