    WordPress version: latest (3.4.2)
    WordPress SEO version: latest (1.3.1.1)

    I did this:

    I tried to add a Facebook admin, and it gives me a 403 error.

    I expected the plugin to do this:

    I have this site duplicated, exactly with the same plugins, theme, and settings (only difference is mainly the content) and it worked fine.

    Instead it did this:

    I logged in/out of my WP, of FB, and still no go.

    Hmm please test with the upcoming new version and let me know if that works better for you. Found a possible cause, but not entirely sure that's the real issue.

    Same here! Thought it might be the Better WP Security plugin, but that wasn't it.
    I get a 403 error too.

    I have had this (403) happen in older versions of WP-SEO, but not current. The error would be that access to wp-admin was not permitted and a 301 notice.

    At the time I thought it might possibly be due to having secured the wp-admin area with htaccess limiting access to wp-admin by only my ip.

    The bug in 1.3.1.1 for me is that WP-SEO wont add FB App as admin; only user. I do have (and have had for some time) a very basic FB App in my developer area.

    At the end of the day, I would much rather somehow have my FB company page (rather than my personal (user) profile) linked to my (WordPress) site as my site is related to my business.

    The same problem here.

    With the last version (1.3.3) still not working.

    I'he tried it with all the others plugin off and reseting the browsers cache (chrome 22 and Firefox 17) but I still getting the 403.

    By the way, I'm using WP 3.5.

    I suppose that you are refering to a 403 error...

    Yes, the erroro is on a final stage, even the plugin is included on facebook as authorized app.

    I hope Yoast can attend this issue.

    I was having the same problem as well as some other issues with Facebook sharing all of a sudden and was able to fix them by disabling W3 Total Cache. I think it may have been something in the .htaccess file it generated.

    I had the same problem, and it was Block Bad Queries plugin causing it.

    We got the same thing.
    Not with WP SEO but working with Facebook in a custom plugin.

    Facebook gives back a ?code= once you authenticate a user.
    In that $_GET can be an ?code=[...]--[..]-[..].
    See the doubles dashes/hyphens follow by a string and another dash/hyphen.
    This is prevented by mod_security on your server because it is a possible SQL Injection.

    So hopefully someone knows how to fix it other than disabling mod_security on the server.
