    When sharing a page the Facebook share window pops up, when clicking "share link" nothing happens.

    some days ago FB apparently changed its internal SDK code, so some sites have issues with the sharing function. The issue is not related to the plugin, because the plugin code for the FB share button hasn't changed recently.

    The issue seem related to the Facebook Application ID, that used to be optional and now seems required. You can get a Facebook App ID from the Facebook Developers page here: https://developers.facebook.com/apps

    You can also follow this guide to get it: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/yahoo-merchant-solutions/facebook-application-sln18861.html

    Based on our tests, inserting the website url inside the "App Domains" field is good enough to enable the Share button in your site.

    Once you obtained it, add the Facebook App ID inside the plugin options, in the proper "app ID" field near the "Facebook Like" row.

    Hi, I'm having the same issue. I've followed the steps as outlined regarding the Facebook Application ID - that was over 24 hours ago and no changes. The only way I've been able to share my most recent post is purge the cache via W3 Total Cache and sharing that link:


    The FB share button doesn't work on the actual post however:


    Older posts seem to be working fine.

    I tried deactivating W3 Total Cache to see if that would rectify the problem - no luck.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thank-you in advance.
