When adding a source we fetch some past posts, but there's no option to create a historical archive
Walls.io's primary use case is to collect, moderate and display fresh social media content as it is published on the social media platforms we support. We do not offer the option to create a historical archive of past posts for various technical reasons.
While we do fetch a handful of past posts when you're adding a new source, the time frame we can look back depends on the particular platform's API & technical limitations. Therefore, we can't give specifics on how many posts we'll import or how far back into the past we'll go when adding a new source.
Keep your social wall from looking static by enabling “post shuffle”
If your hashtag is experiencing a lull or regular phases of inactivity, try using the shuffle feature: this will move old posts to the top based on two settings:
- Time between shuffles defines after how long a period of inactivity older posts will be shuffled to the front as well as the shuffle frequency.
- Minimum post recency can be adjusted to define the freshness of content that should be shuffled.
And don't worry: even if post shuffle kicks in, brand new content will still show up immediately and on top of your wall as it comes in.
To enable the shuffle feature, just go to Settings > Behavior.
