I Just added a video so WATCH THE VIDEO if you’re having trouble understanding. ~The FG
A word regarding collection…
If it is STILL not showing up even after you have read the instructions, watched the video and gone through the motions: I’m very sorry but you are done. There is nothing more I can do to help you. I have done EVERYTHING I can POSSIBLY DO on my end to assist you. The problem is something having to do with you specifically. Either there is a problem with your computer that I can’t see, an instruction that you’re not following properly, or your cafe is glitched and if that’s the case, you have even bigger problems.
There are many people that are still able to do this successfully, including myself. So I KNOW it is working. The only things that have stopped working are VIP foods and energy.
Hello gang… I have good news regarding the recent changes that Zynga made to gifting in Cafe World. I’m sure you noticed that recently the freebie links on this blog stopped working. It’s due to a change that they made where you could no longer accept gifts from people who were not your friend.
I spend much of last Friday and Saturday trying to find solutions that would it as easy as it was before to collect goodies. Unfortunately, I cannot find a solution as easy as “Click and done!” like I usually can. You CAN STILL make the links for you, but now it takes just a little effort on your part.
But it’s really not that bad. It’s not so hard at all, so don’t worry. If you’d rather watch a video to understand… please watch this video on YouTube.
All you have to do is open each goodie link as you once did, and change where it says “from=0” to “from=XXXXXX”, where XXXXXX is the Facebook ID# of a friend of yours.
Previously, when you clicked a link, it would say that you got such-and-such item from “Chef Amelia”, who is Cafe World’s pink-haired, pig-tailed mascot. Well, no longer can you get stuff from her. The old links had the text “from=0”. The 0 means it’s from Chef Amelia.. if you change the 0 to the Facebook ID of one of YOUR friends, they’ll work again.
It has to be one of YOUR friends that plays Cafe World. So the number you use differs from person to person.
Here’s what you do:
Part 1: Getting a friend’s Facebook ID#.
You need the Facebook ID# of one of your friends, preferably one that plays Cafe World. Don’t worry, it doesn’t affect them in any way.
To get it, all you have to do is go to their profile and look in the address bar of your browser. It’ll look like 1 of 2 different things:
It’ll either look similar to this (with a number in it)
Or it will be a vanity name and look something like this
If it looks like Example 1, the number you need is at the end, past “?id=” . Copy that number and put it in your favorite text editor and go to Part 2.
If it is Example 2, keep looking through your friends profiles until you find one that doesn’t have a vanity name.
Part 2: Claiming your goodies
So now that you have the number, all you have to do is open the goodie links (such as the VIP Dinners) as you always do. Yes, you’ll see an error “Uh oh! We’re sorry but it seems that something went wrong in the kitchen!” But don’t worry about that. Look at your browser’s address bar (at the top of the window). That’s the actual link to the goodie.
Look for where it says “from=0”. Put your cursor just past the 0, and paste your friend’s Facebook ID# right there. Then press enter, and you got your goodie!
Once you get the hang of it, it’ll be easy for you to collect goodies again.
PS – I don’t normally ask for help but if there’s anyone out there that can help me automate this process for people, I’d really appreciate the help. My coding skills are nearly non-existant. :/ Please contact me on the About page.
