  • try “http://www.facebook.com/script.yorkshire” as the Facebook page URL

    Thanks but that didn’t do it either.

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

    “https://www.facebook.com/script.yorkshire”

    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 ‘http://www.facebook.com/platform’ 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 https://www.facebook.com/script.yorkshire, 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 http://www.facebook.com/platform you can ‘like’ the page, but on https://www.facebook.com/script.yorkshire 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.
