    confused about how to set up the subscription function, I enabled it in settings but I get an error on the post.

    Subscribe is not enabled for http://www.facebook.com/jude.quin.

    the error links to https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/subscribe/

    where I'm promted to create a subscription button using my fb id. But what do I do with this code? does it work with the plugin or is it a sperate thing?

    maybe the error should link to this page instead?
    https://www.facebook.com/about/subscribe

    there's a big buttom that says "enable subscriptions" I clicked it and the error I was getting below my posts is gone.

    No idea how I ended up there, not sure if subscriptions are to my personal fb account or my organization fb account which is using the plugin.. I think. Or is my personal fb page using it too? or is there no difference? I'm really confused about how the 2 are integrated.

    after spending many hours in trial and error, it appears the subscription can't be for a fb "page" or at least not a "local business" page. It only worked for my personal fb account.

    Looks like you were having a conversation by yourself there, but it you see this, Thanks! The info you provided may be of value to me... not sure yet but I'm heading off that way! :)

    It's a difficult plugin. I set it up for some clients but I get the wrong apps showing up in their settings. The documentation never mentions how a developer might use it for client sites.

    Any luck with this issue? I've just hit the same wall with this page: http://www.birminghamhotel.com.au

    If you mean the subscription issue, I haven't revisited.

    If you mean setting it up for someone else's fb account,
    you have to be logged in to that fb account when you create and configure the app. I've done it a few timss now.
