  • try “” as the Facebook page URL

    Thanks but that didn’t do it either.

    Last try, then I’m out I’m afraid…!


    Thanks for looking iburley. That doesn’t work.

    I’ve tried a variety of personal pages and none of them works in context. But the example provided by Facebook in their tutorial ‘’ does work – it’s their own developers’ page.

    So, still mystified and hoping for help 🙂

    I think… and I could be wrong… that the widget is designed to work with a Facebook Page (like a business/organisation/celebrity publicity) rather than with a private individual.

    Looking at, it appears like an individual rather than a ‘page’, which is possibly why it throws up the error message.

    You’ll see the difference where on you can ‘like’ the page, but on you have the option to ‘add as friend’.

    Thanks *very* much. Shows my ignorance of Facebook terminology. And I’m off to find a different plugin. Really very useful advice.

    From the Facebook Like Box social plugin page: “The Like Box is a social plugin that enables Facebook Page owners to attract and gain Likes from their own website.”

    Like Box is for Facebook Pages. If you enter a URL value on the Like Box social plugin preview page and the URL does not render a Like Box then a WordPress plugin implementing the Like Box social plugin would be no different.

    Facebook has separate profile badges which may be supported by other WordPress plugins.

    Thanks Niall. Now I get the difference between profile and page. Cheers.
