Hi,

 

The Facebook all in one section is a third party section, therefore you will need to contact the author for assistance.

Hey Danny.

 

I am not using the third party section. I used normal html code generated by Facebook.

 

And when I changed the code (to different link) the wiget for some reason stopped working.

OK, I apologise, I assumed you were using the Facebook All in One section.

 

If the widget stops workings, it is either caused by a plugin or the code is not correct. When viewing your homepage, you have three errors which may be causing the issue, it appears the error is related to YouTube?

I recommend you review the code provided by facebook and see if there are any errors. If this doesn't resolve the issue, try removing the YouTube embed code, if that doesn't work, disable Plugins.

I went through different setting, however, the witget is not working on any page on my site.

 

Even on pages where are not errors.

 

I turned all plugins and Facebook section, but it is still not working.

 

Could there we some hidden setting - do not show html in widget?

You changed the code Facebook provided?

 

If that's so, then you need to return to Facebook (FB) for the code for the link you wish. As I understand it, they're specifically coded and that code is not intended to be edited.

 

I have some FB code on my own site and if I try to change it, the entire widget it is in vanishes.  So the best solution would be go back to FB and get the proper amended code and paste that.

Hi Guys, 

 

Im having some difficulties with my "Facebook Like, Message Box". Im using the dms shortcode to add Facebook like, twitter and google+ to the pages, no 3rd party plugin.

 

When you click the Facebook like button, normally a drop down box with a thumbnail image appears giving the user the opportunity to comment with the shared link to Facebook.

 

The problem i have is the drop down box is only as wide as the Facebook like button, which is only 76px wide. The user cant see the text area to write comments nor can they see the whole thumbnail image they are sharing.

 

Any ideas, i see this is an old thread, hoping it still gets monitored by you guys.
