Facebook Like Button Shortcode


Question

Posted · Report post

I am using the shortcode you provide to include sharing buttons on my pages.  Everything works fine apart from the Facebook Like Button.  When clicked, you are supposed to get a window that allows you to write a personal comment before posting.  Mine is limited to 75 px because of a SPAN tag and is therefore cut off.  

 

Why is it limited and how to change?

Thanks,

Upgrade to the latest version of PageLines Framework, you're currently using 2.4, the latest version is 2.4.1 and see if that resolves the issue.

 

If it doesn't, add this to your custom CSS and see if this resolves the issue.

#site .fb_iframe_widget iframe {
width: 450px;
max-width: 450px;
}

The CSS resolved the issue.  Thanks.

 

I tried to update the theme version but it said I have no new updates available?

Go to Appearances > Themes, there should be a notification that the theme needs updating.

If that doesn't appear, you may need to disable all non-PageLines plugins, as you're definitely using 2.4 and the latest version is 2.4.1.

I have marked the topic as resolved but also reported it as a possible issue.

Can you please take a screenshot of the issue? (I can't see it since I don't use Facebook)

Screenshot is attached.  Its tiny though because I can only upload a 38K file.  Hope this helps.

 

Thanks,

Ginny

Hi Ginny

 

You'll be able to edit the span using css to adjust the width of the comment area. I don't think this is how that area is supposed to display by default though. Unfortunately I don't use facebook either, but will find a member of the team who does and get them to check this out for you and advise further.

I would think this is definitely not the way the default should be.  The facebook button is the only one with a span to define it.  The other buttons don't have it.
