  • Thanks brendantay86 – turn off ‘load js deferred’ worked for me too

    Same here for paid banner ads – not working properly or not seen at all – first update that’s ever caused me an issue to be fair – hopefully a fix on the way

    Well having downloaded a few plugins for Gutenberg – some have a timeline block, to use for a set of dates in a history for example – they have animated bars which run down the ‘times’ which look great

    What would be amazing would be a variation on this where a news brand could operate a live blog – for example some breaking news incidents are worth running a ‘live updates’ post for.

    It just needs time and date and a ‘paragraph’ for each step of update, allow embeds – and preferably a reversible switch ( start at current entry or first entry )

    24liveblog is the best way at the moment to operate these, it’s paid and expensive – I wonder if it could simply be translated to a Gutenberg solution as time moves on

    Thanks for asking!

    Can you help at all? Would love to progress but need to sort the ‘two player’ issue out


    Thread Starter wbwired


    UPDATE – I now know what causes the two players – but need help to fix

    I use TagDiv Newspaper theme, the theme uses ‘Cloud Templates’ – this allows you to design post templates using a builder – when one of the cloud templates is being used – two players are shown

    By accident, I published a post using default post type ( not a cloud template ) – and the one player shows as it should.

    I’m not sure what to put in the post type box to fix this – are they comma separated?

    In Yoast for example they are designated – Cloud Templates (tdb_templates) – I’ve tried to enter this but doesn’t seem to fix



    I have the same on all posts – Facebook states: The ‘og:image’ property should be explicitly provided, even if a value can be inferred from other tags.

    Even adding the image in Yoast share settings – to the Facebook part doesn’t fix

    FB debugger and object debugger do not clear the issue – when sharing only title and excerpt show – no featured image shows

    Just a note – on my installation
    the update stripped the Facebook OG app ID
    fromYoast Social settings – assume when I
    add it open graph images will be there again in FB

    Same here like many others…

    Hi Renzo

    Did you ever make this work with Newspaper theme?

    Many thanks


    Yes that’s right – publish as normal – then go to Facebook – Publishing Tools – and edit the code – it’s something you get better at with practise – use the Examples that Facebook provide to copy blocks of code

    Do you mean related articles underneath your main Facebook Instant Article on Facebook?

    You edit this code block – <footer> in your html edit on Facebook –

    <ul class=”op-related-articles”>

    • <!– Credits for your article –>
      <aside>The footer section can be used for acknowledgements, author bios, related articles, or any other supplemental information.</aside>

      <!– Copyright details for your article –>
      <small>© Facebook</small>


      All I do is copy paste this bit….wrapped in <footer></footer> AND edit those urls to your own site article urls – you can add another line too to make three related – just copy paste a

    • etc
      <ul class=”op-related-articles”>
    • Works really well

    Ok sorry to post again but may help others

    These errors are not stopping anything from working:

    I have been accepted – made a post in my FB library ‘Live’ – from RSS

    Then copied the link into my Facebook Page publish (like I always would have done)

    On a mobile device logged into a different Facebook account – the article shows as an instant article – so clearly this warning isn’t a deal breaker and asks no difference anyway

    – What I didn’t realise is that changing a library IA to `live’ only makes it ‘publishable’ as an IA on your page – you just have to copy your URL (from your website version of the article) and a mobile FB visitor sees it as an IA in their news feed – same as Google AMP

    Hope this helps

    Problem still exists – all other things sorted – but every post contains this warning – on 2.9 WP 4.5

    Although the article isn’t showing on my Facebook Page yet despite this – am I right in saying you just go to the ‘library’ of articles and click ‘publish’ (this is what the FB docs say) – you then get the ‘Live’ flag – the article should be pushed to your chosen Facebook Page then?

    Thanks again



    I’m running now and have been able to select the Facebook Page on 2.9 – I can’t explain how it’s started working –

    I’m sure this is irrelevant (I’m not a skilled dev) but i toggled off Yoast Analytics in the plugin settings (3rd party integrations)- saved – then toggled it back on – saved – and suddenly it worked – allowed me to select page – error gone

    – html missing error remains though but that may be not a problem
