Facebook Like button in the loop not registering the "like" properly. (4 posts)

    Hello, and apologies if this has been treated in another thread already (I have only come accross some half-solutions that did not solve my problem.

    I am trying to integrate FB Like in the topright corner of theloop, and a larger version at the bottom of singlepost.

    The codes I have used are:
    a. theloop
    <div id="fb-root"></div><script src="http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#appId=134203116659997&xfbml=1"></script><fb:like href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" send="false" layout="button_count" width="45" show_faces="false" font=""></fb:like>
    on for example http://www.cij.lu/cij/cij-lu/etudes-et-formations/ (loop 1) and on for example http://www.cij.lu/cij/cij-lu/cahiers/ (loop 2)or on http://www.cij.lu/tk8/teamkaart-lu/kado/ (loop 1 again).
    The code used is exactly the same, but on the one page, some Likes "register", and others fade out after a split second and don't share on Facebook.
    b. singlepost
    <iframe src="http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?app_id=162136851196&href&send=false&layout=standard&width=350&show_faces=true&action=recommend&colorscheme=light&font&height=80" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" style="border:none; overflow:hidden; width:350px; height:80px;" allowTransparency="true"></iframe>
    This is in action on for example http://www.cij.lu/e26/euro26-lu/avantages/2011/04/luxemburger-wort/ or http://www.cij.lu/e26/euro26-lu/avantages/2011/04/luxemburger-wort/ where they both don't seem to work, most of the time.

    I have tried to logically analyze where the issue might be, but to no avail :( - basically the only one I am quite sure works is the http://www.cij.lu/cij/cij-lu/cahiers/ one.

    Thank you so much for your help and time, we would all greatly appreciate it!

    Isn't this more of a Facebook issue, rather than a WordPress issue?

    I had a similar problem a few months ago, likes not registering correctly. It was an issue with the OG: meta tags for us and the App ID. Hopefully this helps you.

    Thank you for your feedbacks. Chip, as it is the same code, but on some wordpress-loops, it seems to be working, and on others not, I was guessing it was either a WordPress issue, or a "me-issue". I have checked all possible me-issues I knew of ;), and will now gladly look into jmag's suggestion ;) - I had a hunch it could be somehow related to App ID's and OG, so chances are good it's a me-issue :D
