Simple Facebook Connect
[resolved] Error: The plugin does not have a valid header (5 posts)

    I just update to v1.0 and go these two messages, but nothing has changed on my end. Any suggestions?

    "The plugin simple-facebook-connect/sfc-like.php has been deactivated due to an error: The plugin does not have a valid header."

    "The plugin simple-facebook-connect/sfc-publish.php has been deactivated due to an error: The plugin does not have a valid header."

    The other parts of the plugin didn't complain about any missing headers.

    This is normal. As the instructions said, you should deactivate the old plugins first before upgrading. Then you wouldn't have gotten this message.

    The old plugin was a multi-plugin thing. The new one is not. So you get this message because all those old plugins are not plugins anymore.

    Thank you. Sorry for not noticing the ALL CAPS - I should read before I update! Thanks for this great plug-in.

    Only trouble I'm having now has been like this for a while... the LIKE button won't pickup the content summary, it always takes the blog description. Any tips? Here's a sample post:
    http://learningdslr.com/2011/08/double-inspiration-tuesdays-go-do/

    There is an og:description meta tag there:

    <meta property='og:description' content='I can't resist sharing another video today along with its behind the scenes footage. It's partially Canadian as it stars two Windsor photographers that got [...]'/>

    I commented out the Meta description tag which has the line about the blog which is appearing as the caption. But no luck. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Phil

    When FB scans posts for that info, they cache it. So any changes you make won't be reflected immediately. Remove the other description entirely instead of just commenting it out, and try it on a new post to see what it picks up.

    Seems good now. Thanks Otto!
