  • I have the same problem. I tried to “Add Facebook Admin” but this took me to a 404 page on my own site. I logged into Facebook as my Facebook page, and when I tried to “Add Facebook Admin” again through the plug-in, this got me as far as a connection to Facebook, where I was prompted to switch over to using FB as my profile. I made this switch, which got me as far as having the WordPress SEO Facebook app installed, and even adding my pages to manage, then got me to a page that told me what my ID’s were for my profile and pages. But this seems to have had no effect on the page data and when I tried to click on “Add Facebook Admin” again back in my CMS, I again got a 404 page on my own site.

    Yeah 404 error, unable to add admin or FB app there, Joost please try to solve this problem.

    Same issue here! 🙁

    Still the same error

    I am too having same problem

    WordPress version: 3.5.1
    WordPress SEO version: 1.4.2

    I did this:

    Installed WordPress SEO, tested Facebook Admin, not working.
    Disables all plugins, not working.
    Activated 2012 Theme, not working.
    Disabled and uninstalled WordPress SEO.

    I expected the plugin to do this:

    Add Facebook Application as Admin.

    Instead it did this:

    Added Facebook Application as Admin.
    Nothing Happened.

    Had the same problems, now it is working! Here’s what I did:

    1. Choose the “Use Facebook admin” button.
    2. The page returns a 404! Oh noes 🙁
    3. Change the URL (remove the bolded part of your URL):
    from this:
    to this:
    4. Party time! Now add the URL to the Facebook insight dashboard, the meta tag is now live.

    Throw a response if it still isn’t working. 🙂

    i can add my facebook account now but I cannot get insights at all.

    i try to add on the insights pagte and it rejects it and gives me…

    No admin data found at root webpage Insights requires admin data at this root webpage for the specified URL

    any ideas?

    I’ve got the same error too.

    the plugin should be outputting this in the header

    <meta property="fb:admins" content="1234567" />

    1234567 being your Facebook User ID.

    You can just add the HTML yourself, and find your fb user ID here:

    Used to work – however new sites it doesn’t appear to work
