Facebook official plugin not working (7 posts)

    I've installed and activated the official FB plugin, which is supposed to allow Like, Send, and Follow buttons on pages and posts. I've checked all the boxes but the buttons do not appear.
    Already googled, searched FB developers and support forums and wp.org forums and no one else seems to have the issue.
    It seems pretty simple, install, activate, check some boxes and it should work, but doesn't. Any ideas?
    otherwise happy Sundance user...

    Have been trying to finalize my Sundance theme blog for two days - problems with Facebook button links. Now have two Facebook buttons - Friend Me on Facebook button does NOT work!

    Thanks for your reply. I am new on here and can't figure out HOW to start a new thread as you requested. I see that on my site the facebook address is written incorrectly, but I can't find where I can edit it. Where can I access and edit this text? Please advise where and how you want me to post and I will. I have been trying to resolve this for days with no success.
