WP Facebook Open Graph protocol

    After installing the plugin, I tested one of my blog post URL's at https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug

    It reports the following warning:

    Object at URL 'http://mattreport.com/2011/09/how-to-turn-on-new-facebook-timeline-profile/' of type 'article' is invalid because the given value '144083682318683' for property 'fb:admins' could not be parsed as type 'fbid'.

    Any thoughts on this error?

    Your admin id is wrong. it's too long. After further looking at your site and linking fb page... you have your PAGE Id in the admin id field. Your admin ID is for your personal FB profile and the

    https://graph.facebook.com/mattreport (that id # is your page_id)

    I don't know what your personal profile is but replace your personal profile name with the 'mattreport' in the graph.facebook url above.

    That'll fix it. Also beware that using app_id is buggy... and that's on FB's side not mine. I'm actually considering removing that field altogether because of the problems it seems to cause.

    That'll help you tho... Cheers!

    Thanks!

    That worked, but only to bring me to a new error:

    Object at URL 'http://mattreport.com/2011/09/how-to-turn-on-new-facebook-timeline-profile/' of type 'article' is invalid because the domain 'mattreport.com' is not allowed for the specified application id '255450764493083'. You can verify your configured 'App Domain' at https://developers.facebook.com/apps/255450764493083.

    Any idea how to authorize it?

    Like I mentioned the app_id w/ Facebook seems to always give people troubles. You have to have your domain setup right and even then I still think it throws errors. Remove the app ID as all you should need is your personal admin id and the page id to have stats from the page.

    Having same issue. My facebook id = 175832745844505, this is not the API key.

    I loaded this into the plugin and got the error

    Object at URL 'http://www.bizlinkglobal.com/blog/solving-the-social-media-puzzle-a-must-read-for-2012/' of type 'article' is invalid because the given value '' for property 'fb:app_id' could not be parsed as type 'fbid'.

    when I looked at the graph API it says

    "url": "http://www.bizlinkglobal.com/blog/solving-the-social-media-puzzle-a-must-read-for-2012/",
    "type": "website",
    "title": "Solving the Social Media Puzzle \u2013 A Must Read for 2012",
    "image": [
    {
    "url": "http://1.gravatar.com/avatar/94dbdc47272b8042ab598f74ba818a5d?s=70&d&r=PG"
    }
    ],
    "description": "Solving the Social Media Puzzle gives you an overview of the top social media platforms and the role businesses content should play in marketing strategy.",
    "updated_time": "2012-08-25T13:57:01+0000",
    "id": "10151101318744367"

    the id 1015110131874436 is not the number of the id 175832745844505 that i entered in to the plugin. What the heck is happening and how do I fix it?

    thanks

    @stifoo I see my plugin code functioning perfectly... you have something else adding in another set of OGP tags that are incomplete and it throws in the tag
    <meta property="fb:app_id" content="">

    You need to remove that plugin or whatever is injecting that additional code as that's what's screwing up the validation. Otherwise the code from my plugin seems to be working great :)

    Good luck.

    @chuckreynolds I am having this exact same issue. I have checked my ID and settings as you instruct above yet still seem to produce a "Response Code 200" from the Facebook Object Debugger.

    Here is the URL I've pasted into the Facebook Object Debugger:
    http://j.mp/QE2ZX3

    Here is the profile on Facebook:
    https://graph.facebook.com/journalismaccelerator

    I've searched the source code for duplicate OGP tags and don't see any so I'm not sure why its throwing up the error.

    Any insight would be really helpful.
    Let me know if you have any questions.
    Thanks!

    Because you're using a pageID in your admins field... admin field is for PERSONAL ID's only. remove that and you should be fine.

    Just want to follow up on my additions to this thread.
    I was using PageID, not UserID.

    However, I did not want things to be associated with a user, I wanted them associated with a brand/company. So I had to create a Facebook app under my own personal Facebook account that is for the brand/company.
    I had to make sure all the URL's within the app pointed to my brand/company domain for things to resolve properly.
    Then once I had the Facebook app with all the URL's added within it, I added that AppID only to the plugin.
    Went to validate it and all was well.

    Thanks to @chuckreynolds for his help!!
