[resolved] facebook problem (2 posts)

    this is on multiple sites with wordpress version as low as 3.31 but some are 3.4.1... it is critical we get this resolved somehow or we will havee to find a different solution on the sites. Is this the plugin issue or something else.
    Looks like there's some kind of problem going on with Socializer plugins... It's not allowing people to like across multiple websites. Here's a thorough description of the problem from a Facebook gig I tried ordered for our clients on Fiverr:

    "Some people have gotten through and Liked the buttons, but more people are saying the following happens. - They click Like. - It says Confirm. - They confirm and like. - Then, it doesn't register and when they return to facebook it has logged them out. When they log back in, they're accounts are suspended. Facebook says: " Your account has been suspended for suspicious activity. It then makes them answer their security questions or get another confirm text sent to their phones, then Facebook makes them change their passwords. The remainder of my guys don't want to go through this or have to change their passwords.... So, I'm not sure what's going on (The like button worked for me) but you should get whoever provided the code for your like button to look at them. Because it's causing people to get suspended and have to change their account settings.... or, if it's a copy/paste the code like button, maybe look for another. Sorry."

    I tested it out myself and had the same results. Not sure what the problem is, but the first website I like worked fine, then I tried to like another and it wouldn't let me (did the "confirm" process described above but even after I confirmed, it still didn't like the page).

    The prefect solution to the problem is mentioned in this page

    Facebook like button is asking for confirmation

    WP Socializer uses the standard code given by Facebook. So if the source is correct, the plugin will work fine.
