How to Crosspost on Reddit

If you want an easy way to post messages across different Reddit communities, you’ll need to know how to crosspost on Reddit. Here’s how.

Crossposting on Reddit allows you to take a post from one community and share it with another. The crosspost includes an embed of the original post with the username, karma score, and community of the original post.

This option allows other users to find the original source content and gain more exposure. However, not all communities allow crossposting, and you need to be a member of a community to crosspost there.

In this guide, we’ll show you all you need to know about crossposting on the Reddit social platform.

Getting Your Message Out on Reddit

If you have a message you think belongs to more than one community, the crossposting option is convenient and saves the time of rewriting the same message. Remember, crossposting requires you to join the community; some subreddits don’t allow it. If they don’t, the option will be grayed out.

There are other ways to get more from Reddit. For example, when you search through Reddit, it accumulates a lot of search history—you can delete your Reddit history for a clean start.
