[Plugin: Facebook Share (New) Button] Logo but no counter not showing unless logged into Facebook (14 posts)

    The javascript version of the share button shows the box_count if the user is logged into FB or not. This xfbml version only shows the box_count if the user is currently logged into Facebook so all that shows is the share logo.

    This feels like a bug to me. Do I have to include yet another FB javascript in my app just to get that count?

    Appreciate the work done on the implementation. If you could fix this issue it would be hugely appreciated.

    The button shows but the post count only shows only after click on the share button. Any solutions for this?

    I just installed this and am having the same issues. It doesn't show the count unless the user clicks to share.

    Have tried the direct version code from Facebook, also the same problem.

    <a name="fb_share" type="box_count" href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=<?php the_permalink() ?>&t=<?php the_title(); ?>">Share</a><script src="http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/connect.php/js/FB.Share" type="text/javascript"></script>

    It's look like the Facebook code is the problem and not this plugins. Any solutions for this?

    Here how the button looks in one of my site post : KL Car Rental

    I am having the same issue. Is there a fix coming? It is keeping count correctly in the Analytics page, but the counter will not show unless you click the Share button.

    The counter will not show up until the post shared 3 times. Thats the informastion (rule?) from Official wiki - Facebook Share.

    Well, i look it possible to override your own js for the JS, like the Fbshare did. But, i dont look it much on th JS file. Another and simple way, you can customize your css. The default FB share have CSS code like these one (for the hidden box):

    .fb_share_no_count {
    display:none;
    }

    you can make your own CSS for that class, overwrite the CSS from JS file.
    Change the display to "display:block;"

    Sample here in my web
    http://www.getjobfor.com
    It will show blank if the post didn't share yet. We just play with CSS here, maybe the others can play with the JS file, and make it more nice.

    Well, my simple solution you can fill the blank with first share from your own account.

    using
    .fb_share_no_count {
    display:none;
    }

    It show the blank box.
    But after sharing through facebook it should show the incremented counter. Next time when i come to this page it again shows blank box and no counter. and when i click on F-Share then it shows incremented counter.
    i want to show the real counter when page reloads.
    Please suggest me the solution for it.

    I am also using the "official" facebook share button (as opposed to this plugin) and the problem mentioned above was driving me nuts. Finally invested some time to come up with a hack/fix. Again, this explains the workaround I used for the "raw" facebook share button, but I assume it could be added to this plugin as well.
