[resolved] Sometimes the likes count, sometimes they are zeroed... (4 posts)

    Hey there,

    I am running http://www.booknerds.de and as you might see I placed a like box under the preview and within the full posts.

    When I take the normal permalink like http://www.booknerds.de/2013/01/interview-mit-benedict-wells-autor-von-fast-genial-spinner-und-becks-letzter-sommer the count works properly but when using the "more" link it appends that code at the end: http://www.booknerds.de/2013/01/interview-mit-benedict-wells-autor-von-fast-genial-spinner-und-becks-letzter-sommer/#more-751

    So, do I guess right that the changed URL with the "/#more-blablabla" is the problem? And if yes: How can this be solved?

    The referenced page has at least four Open Graph protocol code blocks defining information including the canonical URL to use for the page.

    Pass your URLs through the Facebook Debugger to see parsing issues preventing Facebook from properly indexing your page and populating full data from a Like Button action.

    Hello Niall,

    thanks for the info, but in the meantime I fixed the problem by installing a WP plugin which removes the #more tag. So when clicking the "read more" link the URL of the full post is also the permalink without any appendix.

    A simple addition to functions.php does the trick.

    See this Digging into WordPress article: Cool Things You can do with the WordPress "more" Tag. Skip down to the part "Stop more link from jumping to middle of page"
