    Hello, my main page got change from root url (/) to specific URL (/?page_id=) as result of multilanguge plugin that forced this behaviour.

    As result, the number of likes and comments gone from this root page.
    So... how can I force a specific page to use a specific URL?

    If it requires an IF condition in a php file (if the url is X, then put Y, don't take X), please let me know the location in the code.

    Thank you very much!

    This is not supported by the plugin or by Facebook. The number of likes is connected to the URL. If you change the URL, then the likes are gone.

    Thank you.
    I think that "if condition" may work around this issue.
    At least in some methods of putting a Like button, Facebook considers the specified address in the Like buttons's DIV tag, not the URL or meta data. So if change this code to point url X, Facebook will show the number of like for url X, not the url of the page.

    This is from my experience.
