how do you get the Like plugin working? (3 posts)

    I just installed Like as per the instructions. It does work! Every time I click on the Like icon it flashes briefly with a '1', indicating that there's been a vote. But sadly after a second or so it reverts back. It's as though it's trying to communicate with Facebook and failing.
    My facebook account doesn't show up a like either. Something's not working.

    Also, I tried typing in my facebook numeric ID but don't get the promised Admin link...

    Either I've missed something fundamental to this 'just works out the box' plugin, or it's broken.

    It will happen if you specify a valid fb:app_id but the corresponding application is not properly setup as its Connect URL doesn't end with a slash (/)

    Check the FAQ: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/like/faq/
    Then the plugin homepage (comments are useful):

    Hmmm weird. Seems to be working now, although that might be because I've updated to 1.9.3??
    Anyway nice plugin now it works!
