[resolved] pressing like button needs confirmation when pressed, need to take it out! (4 posts)

    I have a problem with this plugin, when I click on the like button it pops up the share and post to facebook box and then in the same second dissapears and a confirm button takes the place of the like button that still needs to be pressed in order to make the "like" happen by the user. Please view my site on this page here to see it yourself,

    Take note though that I did leave my facebook App ID blank since I do not have a developer account in this plugin's settings.
    Also i have found this problem to occur on just about any facebook like plugin i have downloaded over wordpress, so it seems the problem may lie innately on my wordpress theme or php coding. I find even if the problem wont occur at first, it eventually will when i do something different no matter what it is, like post a new page, or reorder the pictures of an album, etc.

    I am currently using wordpress 3.7.1

    There is little that can be done to fix this, see the FAQ, question U27 for why.

    Sorry but I don't understand how U27 answers my problem, here it is listed.

    U27 I want pink links! ;-)

    How, when and where links, comments, etc appear on your wall/page/group is entirely determined by Facebook. Only a few link properties can be set by the plugin. See here for the official documentation.

    The social plugins, such as the like box, comments plugin and activity feed, seem to be part of your website, but in reality these plugins run on Facebook. This means the appearance and behavior of these plugins can only be changed by Facebook.

    = do you mean my problem with the fb like button having the need to confirm it, happens to everyone who downloaded this same plugin? How come I don't see anyone else in the forums with the same complaint as me and in the example of pages who have this plugin installed, I try clicking on their likes and it works without confirmation.

    As mentioned, this plugin worked perfectly at first without the need of confirmation until a few days later while i was editing my site, i ran into that problem.

    "The social plugins, such as the like box, comments plugin and activity feed, seem to be part of your website, but in reality these plugins run on Facebook. This means the appearance and behavior of these plugins can only be changed by Facebook."

    In other words this cannot be changed by you and me.
    You can try to report a bug on Facebook.
