Support » Fixing WordPress » Facebook like button

  • Resolved haussamen



    I can’t get the Facebook like button to work on my site. I manually input the code and it didn’t work. I tried numerous plugins, including AddThis, and it didn’t work. I tried uninstalling all other plugins and even changing templates and it still didn’t work.

    Basically, the like button shows up on posts sometimes and not other times. And it’s not consistent – sometimes it will show up above the content in one post one minute but not the next time I visit that page.

    On plugins that let you choose whether to show it at top or bottom of the post or both, I’ve tried all options. When I choose both, sometimes it will show up at the top but not the bottom, or vice versa.

    I’ve done web searches and can’t even find others having this problem. This is a new WordPress installation through Bluehost. My WordPress version is up to date, and so are scripts through Bluehost.

    When I try to install the like button using html5, if I watch the page load I’ll see a space appear where the like button should appear, but then the button doesn’t appear and the space for it goes away. If I use XFBML, the space appears and stays there after the page has loaded, but the like button never appears.

    I’ve never seen anything like this. And I’m out of ideas. But I need the like button. Help! Thanks.

  • The like button appears more often at the bottom than the top of the content. And even when it does appear, when I click it it doesn’t like the page…

    I have the same problem,
    I didn’t even try plugins yet cause I think if the button doesn’t work when I add code manually it will not work within plugin also.
    I just wanted to let you know that if I find a solution that works I will let you know (post it here).
    I found some new advices and “how to” add the code I will try …

    Also, most plugins for social bar have problems with new wordpress, 3.5.

    In the meantime, did you find a solution that works? Or the reason why it won’t work …
    It would be a great help if you did.
