[resolved] Still not working in IE8 (2 posts)

    Hi Pleer. I've read the previous thread on this topic and have tried manually adding:

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

    within the html tag, but with no success. Although I've tried that method, I've since removed it because I do see the Open Graph and fb ... fbml printed to the post via the plugin by selecting XFBML, Open Graph, and Namespace in the settings section. (Manually entering it created a second instance)

    Here's a link http://www.dajuanjones.com/bridal-portrait-photography-session-unc-chapel-hill-shanda/

    So the Comment box isn't shown in IE8, although it is shown in Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. I've noticed that when I click any link on the page (post), the box draws itself and appears to be contacting facebook.

    I've disabled things such as caching plugins and WP-Minify to try to rule out JS problems. I just can't figure this one out.

    I notice you have the Faccebook Like buttons in the page. Do these show up in IE8? If so then it may have something to do with the way XFBML is called in the page. If it is, take away the current way of calling XFBML and enter this right after <body>:

    <div
    id="fb-root"></div><script>window.fbAsyncInit=function(){FB.init({xfbml:true,appId:YOUR_APP_ID});};(function(){var e=document.createElement('script');e.async=true;e.src=document.location.protocol+'//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js';document.getElementById('fb-root').appendChild(e);}());</script>
