October 24th, 2019 - 1:00PM - Tailwind Extension Update

As of Tuesday evening, the Tailwind extension began experiencing issues when trying to schedule from Pinterest due to some major updates Pinterest made on their page. As of now, all issues have been resolved in Safari and Firefox.

Chrome Extension Status:
As of yesterday, we submitted an update to the Chrome Extension store that resolves all issues in Chrome, but are awaiting approval from Google to publish this latest update. (These approvals typically take less than an hour, but for some reason, this review is taking much longer.)  

Our development team is currently working with Google’s support team to try to expedite the approval! In the meantime, if you’re using Chrome, please make sure to update your Tailwind extension to version 3.4.16 - as this version will allow you to click the Tailwind icon or the “Schedule” button to create new drafts.  

PLEASE NOTE: in this interim version, the pop-up window will still appear to be blank, but the Pins or images you’re trying to schedule WILL be saved to your Drafts page! All you’ll need to do after you hit the “Schedule” button is close the popup and head to your Tailwind Drafts page where you can add your desired board(s), Pin descriptions, etc. and finish scheduling your drafts!

As soon as Google approves our latest version, this blank pop-up issue will also be fixed in Chrome. We expect this newest version to be approved today, and your extension will automatically update when Google enables the newest version to go live. 

We're so sorry for this inconvenience and thank you for your patience. We'll get everything back up and running as soon as possible.

October 24th, 2019 - 11:20AM - Tailwind Extension resolved for Firefox and Safari. Chrome update pending Google review.

April 24th, 2019 - 11:00AM - Browser extension issues resolved (Firefox and Chrome) and pending (Safari)

This issue has been fixed through an extension update. This update is currently live on Chrome and Firefox, and pending review from Apple for Safari.

In order to ensure that your Tailwind extension has updated, please follow these instructions:

For Safari:

The Safari extension update is currently waiting for approval from Apple. This process can take up to a few days. In the mean time I suggest using Chrome or Firefox on your Mac.

For Chrome:

Close Chrome completely (Hold CMD+Q in Mac or close all of the Chrome windows on PC) and re-open Chrome. Chrome should automatically update the Tailwind extension when it restarts. You can check the Chrome extension version by right-clicking the Tailwind icon at the top of Chrome and clicking “manage extensions":

Then find Tailwind on the extensions page and ensure that it says version 3.4.9.

For Firefox:

Close Firefox completely (Hold CMD+Q in Mac or close all of the Chrome windows on PC) and re-open Firefox. Right-click the Tailwind icon at the top of Firefox and click “manage extension"

Click the gear icon and click “Check for Updates”. After updating, ensure that the version number is 3.4.9.

Once you have updated to 3.4.9 you should see the Tailwind icon on your Pins again on Pinterest.com!

We have received reports that the Tailwind browser extension is not appearing on parts Pinterest.com, including the front page and boards. The developers are currently working on a solution.

April 19th, 2019  - Instagram service appears to be fully restored, including location tags.

April 17th, 2019 - Instagram API outage update - partially resolved

We've learned that Instagram is failing to create posts if they have a location tag. We've temporarily created a workaround where, in the instance that Instagram fails to publish your post for this reason, Tailwind will retry the post without the location tag. After testing this for a few hours, we've found that this has fully resolved the problem.

We're still working with Instagram on this issue and waiting for them to completely fix this problem. In the meantime, your posts should begin publishing as they were before! 

If you experienced a failed post recently, you'll be able to view it on the Scheduled Posts page. From here, you'll be able to re-queue any failed posts.


April 15th, 2019 - Instagram API issues are causing Instagram Auto Posts to fail

This article will be updated when new details become available.

Since the weekend of  April 12th we have been experiencing a high number of failed posts to Instagram due to API errors. We are working with Instagram to resolve this issue. This problem is currently affecting all of Instagram's partner tools.

In the mean time, if you are experiencing failed posts using Auto Post, you can switch to a reminder method (iOS Notifications or SMS Notifications) to continue publishing without issues.

In case you have auto posts fail, they will appear in the "Failed Posts" section of your Scheduled Posts page to be rescheduled.

Thank you for your patience in this matter.
