Simple Facebook Connect
[resolved] Facebook Open Graph Error (4 posts)

    My posted from my WordPress website that are posted onto Facebook using SFC have links back to my WordPress site, but they are blocked by Facebook.

    In Facebook's degugger tool, it's says the Open Graph code written by SFC has an error:

    The parser's result for this metadata did not match the input metadata. Likely, this was caused by the data being ordered in an unexpected way, multiple values being given for a property only expecting a single value, or property values for a given property being mismatched. Here are the input properties that were not seen in the parsed result: 'og:locale:locale => en_US'

    If I debug my short URL of ... blog/?p=57, the Facebook debugger returns even more errors for missing Open Graph code:
    The 'og:url' property is required, but not present.
    The 'og:type' property is required, but not present.
    The 'og:title' property is required, but not present.

    I'm hoping this might be an easy fix and the reason why my site is being blocked.

    Without a link, there's nothing I can do for you. I can't see your site without knowing where it is.

    If you get a "Could not scrape URL because it has been blocked", then that's a different error which has nothing to do with OpenGraph data. That error means FB blocked your site because of abuse or something that they consider spammy. You can request removal of the block here:

    Thx Otto.
    My Facebook site is at http://www.facebook.com/elearningtemplates. There are a few posts with links back to my website such as "Launch Pad Updated for Captivate 6", http://www.kcwebplaza.com/elearning/blog/?p=57, which on my WordPress blog resolves to http://www.kcwebplaza.com/elearning/blog/2012/07/adobe-captivate/control-pad-for-adobe-captivate-6-released/.
    thanks in advance

    Bottom line: Facebook has blocked you.

    See this:

    Essentially, they think you're a spammer, or users reported your URLs.
