Add Link to Facebook
Share button gone on Facebook (10 posts)

    Since I last updates all links that are added on Facebook don't have the options "Share" anymore.

    Before the update it was always "Like - Comment - Share", now it is only "Like - Comment".

    Can you fix this? It's a important part of the content getting shared :)
    Thanks

    Nothing have been changed in recent versions of the plugin that is related to the share link. I have just tested it to be sure of this and if Facebook didn't change anything.

    Did you check if the option 'Add 'Share' link' is still enabled?

    I don't mean a link or button on my website, but the link actually posted on Facebook..
    Normally there was a "Share" link. That's gone now.

    See this screenshot for the comparison.

    I did understand it correct.

    And I tested this shortly ago with the latest version and the share link is still there.

    What type of page is it? Personal, business, group, etc.

    I guess it's a business page.. It is not a group.

    I did test this for personal pages, business pages and groups and it works, so I don't understand why it is not working for you.

    Please send me the debug information as explained in the last question of the FAQ and I will take a look.

    Maybe the answer to question U37 of the FAQ can solve your problem. Please let me know if it does.

    I have enabled the "Use Link instead of Feed API" and now it show's the Share link again.. I never used or changes this option. The way the post gets shared is also a bit different now, but it's also good.

    Ok, I am glad it is fixed now. Apparently this is the difference. I will consider making this the default method to communicate with Facebook. Thanks for your patience.

    Thanks, I don't know the real difference because I'm not really into the API. But the way links get shared are nicer I think (they get nicely boxed in by Facebook). You should make it default :)
