    I'm having the same issue only mine is printing a bunch of html code options instead of the actual content of the post. I would also like to make the post go to my page and my personal timeline. Is that possible?

    you can activate that and do it from the right menu... Im not sure why its spitting out html. Do you have other og tags?

    I actually stopped auto publishing to a fan page from this plug in because I received way less impressions than if I added the link manually.

    Can you paste some URLs for the WP posts/pages that are having the issue? Thanks

    og tags? Sorry to sound ignorant but I'm not sure what that means.

    I'd like to add that the FB Comments really slows down the load time of my blog page. Can anything me done regarding that?

    Hi, @mattwkelly

    Same here, I think this is something to improve,

    http://d.pr/i/a9P4

    the left update is from "the plugin" and the right from hootsuite.

    I would like to have the same result. I mean: Description + Text Update + Link.

    Thanks

    Now its publishing again and without the html code so that's good. However, it isn't going to my fan page and instead of my personal wall it's going to the activities section. It's supposed to go to both timelines. ?? This seems to be a very fickle plug-in at the moment.

    Mine is not publishing any kinds of preview/teaser text. only title and thumbnail.

    note that the plugin has some detailed notes about how to publish to a personal profile - but they don't match up at all with the dev page that I encountered. that is typical of facebook - interfaces change very often....

    good 1.0 plugin but needs constant maintenance so I hope the dev's stick with it.

    Folks, I work for Facebook.

    Please post URLs that are exhibiting the problem. Otherwise we can't debug the problem. Thanks

    I am having this issue, but I see this topic has lost steam. Is there a resolution or explanation?

    Post: http://dmtalentnow.com/2012/07/phishing/

    As added to Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/DMTalentNow

    I haven't found a missed checkbox or something simple like that. The only options on a new post page are for "Mention Facebook Friends" and "Mention Facebook Pages."

    Thanks for any help.

    - Peter

    Having the same issue as Peter.Ingersoll & others here... Social Publisher feature is not publishing description/body copy to Fanpage (or Author's timeline).

    Mattkel.ly -- can you please update us on this issue?

    Here are samples:

    1) Facebook Plugin / Social Publisher / Publish to Fanpage: http://goo.gl/kKAth
    (description missing--even though it's present in og meta tags)

    2) Same post using Facebook Plugin / Social Publisher / Publish to Author's Timeline: [DID NOT PUBLISH TO AUTHOR'S TIMELINE -- Error: {"message":"Object at URL 'http://www.danapointer.com/dnaptr-testing08-71/' of type 'article' is invalid because it specifies multiple 'og:url' values: http://www.danapointer.com/dnaptr-testing08-71/, http://www.danapointer.com/dnaptr-testing08-71/.","type":"Exception"}

    3) Author's Timeline manual status update w link: http://goo.gl/VdFsw
    (description missing. shows tagline instead.)

    4) Fanpage manual status update w link: http://goo.gl/mkmsk
    (description missing. shows tagline instead.)

    Thanks for any help or advice you can give!!!
