[resolved] Not working in IE (32 posts)

    I'm loving this plugin, and in my opinion is much neater and easier to use than other Facebook Comments plugins.

    My only worry is that this doesn't seem to work in IE? The elements are loaded (.fbcommentbox etc) but nothing is loaded in to them.

    I have embedded the Facebook Comments Social Plugin directly from Facebook (http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/comments) and it works fine across all browsers - however it shows the same comments site-wide, whereas your plugin shows specific post comments which is what I want.

    Hope that makes sense and you can point me in the right direction for getting this working!

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the feedback. Can you provide me with a link to one page where the comment box is called twice - once using your manual method and another using the plugin?

    Also, does this happen both with the automatic insertion as well as the shortcode option?

    Hi, thanks for the reply.

    Here's a link to the development site:
    http://www.keymultimediastaging.co.uk/newlands-blog/?p=7

    Your plugin is the top comments, and the Facebook App is below. You'll see that the Facebook App has the same comments on both posts.

    But mainly, your plugin doesn't show on IE, whereas the Facebook App does.

    Thanks for taking the time to check it out. And yep, automatic insertion and shortcode is the same.

    You need to tick the Open Graph and/or XFBML tickbox in the settings. One, or both of them, is needed for IE.

    I hate IE!

    Hmmm themes must not be adding them in. How well do you know how to develop themes? Long story short this needs to be added within the <html> tag at the very beginning of the template:

    xmlns:og="http://ogp.me/ns#" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml"

    So, the full HTML tag on my site is:

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" dir="ltr" lang="en-US" xmlns:og="http://ogp.me/ns#" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml">

    Which template did you add that to? index? header? footer? single post? page?
    I am also having that problem with ie8

    My header shows this on top::

    Yep, that's right, in the header.php file

    Change your <html tag so it looks like the pleer's recommendation. All should work fine after that...

    It is not working for me...... I can not get IE8 to show the facebook comments. this is where I pasted the code at the html tag:
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="<?php echo $gantry->language; ?>" lang="<?php echo $gantry->language;?>"xmlns:og="http://ogp.me/ns#" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml">

    Have you tried pasting the exact code I mentioned earlier instead of using PHP within the tag? Does this work?

    I was able to make the comments work on IE8 by pasting the code in the single post.php file

    <html xmlns:og="http://ogp.me/ns#" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml">

    Awesome, thanks for the help pleer.
    I emailed you about this and you gave me a link to this thread.

    So at first I added

    xmlns:og="http://ogp.me/ns#" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml">

    but my like looked like this <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" and that did not work, so then I simply copied and pasted what you have there onto one line and it works perfectly.

    Did this in the header.

    Thanks a bunch, great plugin.

    Hello,

    I have added the full HTML tag on my site:

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" dir="ltr" lang="en-US" xmlns:og="http://ogp.me/ns#" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml">

    But not working yet...

    I had the same IE issue.

    I replaced my <html xmlns...> tag in my header.php with this:

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" dir="ltr" lang="en-US" xmlns:og="http://ogp.me/ns#" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml">

    And now it works perfect

    Wordbooker conflicts with this plugin as it is another Facebook plugin. I had forgotten it was installed, so removing it did the trick.

    The plugin was working fine but since version 3.3 there are problems with ie8. It shows that there is a plugin but it only opens a blank space.

    Great plugin but it doesn't filter out the default WordPress comments box so now I have two. Is there a solution for this?

    hi all, for all those still struggling, try adding the following inside your <head> tags:

    <!--[if IE]>
    <script src="http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js?xfbml=1" type="text/javascript">
    
    </script>
    <![endif]-->
    <script src="http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1" type="text/javascript"></script>

    I'll post this here as it never got any reply on another thread. I just started using this plugin and am a little confused. Maybe I am doing something wrong or missed something:

    1. Do I need to comment in my own WP post to get the post to show up on my FB page?
    2. After I do comment the post's link shows up but there is no thumbnail. Looks like there should be.
    3. Is there anyway to share the FB comment link on the blog post with FB groups?

    I'll leave it at this for now.

    Thanks
    Matt
