    Please make sure to enter an correct number of the facebook PAGE and not of your own facebook profile

    the default option '150268814996661' works just fine, but if you input somehting different it will result in the error you described, i just verified it to be sure

    Just to be clear, it works with any facebook page and not with your own facebook profile

    I have tried this on each of my 3 blogs (which all have different plugins and settings enabled) with their own respective FB page id's, and the same thing happens. Basically the lightbox hover appears but in stead of the FB page like box, its an iframe which has loaded a copy of the original webpage the lightbox was loading on (if you can understand that).

    This happens regardless of which fb page id is specified??!

    Hi. Disappointingly this isn't working. I've tried it with my FB Page id, but when the lightbox display, it shows the Facebook logo with a link Go to facebook.com.

    Click this, and this displays: Could not retrieve id for the specified page. Please verify correct href was passed in.

    It's a fantastic concept when it works. All the best.

    I forgot to mention the default id number mentioned above isn't working either.

    The goto facebook logo is displayed if you are using facebook as a page! If you switch back to regular user accout, you will see the likebox

    Hi Arevico - even when I view a post as whilst in my profile, I get the following message: 'Could not retrieve id for the specified page. Please verify correct href was passed in.'

    The id I'm using is the number after 'id=' as follows:
    https://www.facebook.com/pages/edit/?id=218737598179780
    -- and yet I still the get the above message.

    Thanks and all the best.

    I too have this, or a similar issue. The loading bar just keeps loading. Nothing more happens. I also experienced the same thing as roraz describes.

    Does it have anything to do with pages, that have started like profiles, and then are converted to pages, because that is what I did.

    First I have to say that it is an excellent concept!! When I heard about the plugin I installed it immediately. However it is not working in my case. I used to have a facebook like button (in every blog post) and facebook comments in the bottom of the page. I was willing to remove both of them but it also did not work. As I can see it has a jquery conflict because the tabs I am having in the sidebar are not displayed properly.

    I would love to be able to make it work one day. I can give you additional information if that helps you.

    Cheers,
    Nick

    thanks for liking the concept. If you have more information about the jquery conflict or facebook conflict, please message me at repy@arevico.com .

    I do appreciate constructive feedback and I'm aiming to make the plugin better.

    Hello Arevico,

    I lost many hours trying to figure out what may causing the problem. I even changed the jquery version that I use to the one you use but unfortunately the problem persists.

    If you can, then please take a look in the website cause I am going to leave it with the plugin enabled even though the page does not work properly and I welcome any feedback if you have the time to take a look.

    The front page is myneastyra.gr and the post page that the lightbox should appear is http://www.myneastyra.gr/99-epitropi-gia-xaratsia-sta-nea-styra/

    Please note that the tabs in the right both in the frontpage (that work) and in the post page where it does not work.

    Thank you very much in advance.
    Best Regards,
    Nick

    another plugin on your page is generating these error:
    uncaught exception: Error: Geen toestemming voor

    <https://www.facebook.com> om eigenschap Proxy.InstallTrigger te lezen
    uncaught exception: Error: Geen toestemming voor <http://www.facebook.com> om eigenschap Proxy.InstallTrigger te lezen
    uncaught exception: Error: Geen toestemming voor <http://www.facebook.com> om eigenschap Proxy.InstallTrigger te lezen

    currently, javascript error on the page cause the plugin to break! i'm working hard on a new version which uses the new facebook likebox ( the old one is deprecated). The new plugin uses better coding also and should improve robustness and compatiblilty isues

    Hello Arevico and thank you very much for taking the time to look into my problem. If you just checked it maybe you did not see the full problem.
    I had to deactivate your plugin again because I was asked to do it from the client.

    I have re-enable it just now for you so that you can see exactly what is going on and maybe it will be helpful to you.

    Thank you for your feedback and I really eagerly looking forward to the new one.

    Dear Arevico!!!

    I want to thank you for doing such an incredible job!!! Your facebook promoter is now working smoothly and I fixed some of the javascript errors I had before.

    Thank you for your awesome plugin!

    Your fun,

    I get the following error

    There was an error fetching the like box for the specified page.

    This is a facebook error, you probably didn't input a numeric ID. If not, try to clear your server side cache and evaluate you fanpage visibility /privacy settings.

    furthermore, this error is know to occur if you use the likebox for GROUPS. It is not intended for groups, but for pages only.

    Arevico, When I first DLed the plugin it work immediately. I have since then changed my theme and although the plugin is active, it does not pop up at all, and there is no error code to say anything is wrong. I am using the Broadcast theme by Skyali, is there a way to fix this? Thanks in advance.

    Like everyone else, I'm having no luck using this Likebox. I've copied my Facebook Fanpage # correctly using your guide "Retrieving the Facebook Fanpage ID" and I even logged completely out of Facebook and cleared all the cache... still not working. Please advise as what to do.

    I see that some people seem to have been waiting quite some time for an answer that works, which makes me nervous because I just spent $20 thinking this was going to work like a charm. Great concept, it's just not working as advertised.

    Pleas contact me at reply@arevico.com with yourwebsite. I cannot advise people on their individual situation without more information about their setup. Most common errors are plugin compatibility:

    - people ask why it doesnt work but their website load the facebook api three time
    - outdated jquery,this causes a magnitutude of issues like close button button showing
    - loading the facebook api without api key. If plugins use th xfbml version, always specify the api key or make it use the iframe version

    Most people can get it to work, but in orderfor me to help I need to atleast know your site. Furthermore, there a lot of users who only post "it doesnt work", leave a comment a d never visit back to try and solve.
