Problem with Links on Facebook App (iOS)

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

 

Well, I hope someone can help me with this. I've been trying to find a solution for more than weeks and here I am...

 

The thing is:

 

I have a fanpage for my website with more than 140k fans. As every website owner I share links from my website on the fanpage so as to get more traffic. Eveything seems to work fine. However, for theses fans who make use of Facebook App on their iOS (whatever the version is) something weird happens.

 

Everytime they try to open a link I share, the Facebook App builtin browser shows a blank page. So, these guys cannot read what I share and it has been terrible. I've had a look at other websites and everything works fine. So, I guess this might be something related to iBlogPro5 (the theme I use on my website).

 

To avoid this problem, I've been telling my readers to click on that icon that asks them whether they want to open the link on Safari (or any other browser they may have set as standard).

 

Can someone please give a hint about that? What might seem to be the problem? Is it a code on the them? Is it a Facebook App thing? Anyway, any help will be more than welcome.

 

Thanks,

 

Denilso.

Hi,

 

Do you have any plugins active on your site? If so, deactivate any you did not download from PageLines, but leave Akismet active.

 

Do you have any javascript in the Morefoot?

Hi Rob, 

 

Thank you so much for your reply! And thank you so much for the tip. I deactivate one simple plugin (WP Mobile Detector) and tried to open a link on my iPad and it opened beautifully. 

 

Now everyone is happy here in Brazil about that! I really appreciate your help. If you ever come to Brazil and have fun around here, be my guest!  :D

Denilso.

      Regarding the 'global option' mentioned by Simon in this previous post (to turn off the facebook opengraph data if you are using another plugin that provides it) ...where is this option? I don't seem to be able to find it.
      Many thanks in advance.

      I'm sure this is just user fatigue...but where is the setting to delete the Facebook button in the Splash section of Teamwork? You'd think it would be in the Splash area, but it seems
      to be hiding elsewhere!  You can barely see it... I didn't even notice it until I changed the image.

      When trying to activate the Facebook Plugin, using the Bootstrap Theme under Platform 5, the following Fatal Error occurs:
      Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[', expecting ')' in /wp-content/plugins/pl-plugin-login-facebook/libs/fblogin.php on line 35
      If anyone has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated...

      Hi there!
      I'd love to have some social media buttons in my navbar like my online-shop has!

      Can someone explain me how to create them? I tried a lot but don't know how to realize them...

      For some reason the main site of my multisite has lost the functionality of its blog page.
      http://imagesoferoticism.com/blog/
      If you click on a non-link post (i.e. not the links Pageline allows you to set up in the "Format" menu when you edit the post, or video, etc, but set as a "Standard" post), you get no content and a page that only shows a comments field (e.g. "Leave a reply"). If you go into "edit" the post, the content shows up. But not under "view post." 
      I have toggled to all non-Pagelines themes and it works fine in twenty eleven, thirteen and fourteen. It does not work in any Pagelines theme (e.g. postpins, DMS, iBlogPro, etc.). This appears to be confined to this blog. None of the other blogs on the multisite are affected. I have tested with all of the plugins turned off. No effect. 
      Debug only returns the following message: 
      Notice: wpdb::escape is deprecated since version 3.6! Use wpdb::prepare() or esc_sql() instead. in /www/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3411
      Interestingly enough, I played around with the Permalinks. If you set them to default something interesting happens: the "Blog" item in the menu will no longer go to the "Blog" page. It will go to the "Home" page, even though the posts page is set to the "Blog" page and the Front Page is set to "Home" in Reading. Also, this one part that becomes broken when you switch back to default Permalinks works fine when you are in the visual editor but not when you log out (then you get the Blog link going to the Home page). 
      For posts with actual content, you can test those titled "Smut Capital of America" or "Some Problems with Linda Williams' "Hard-Core Eroticism" which are posts 7 and 8 down, respectively, since the others are just video or linked content. Yes, this is my porn studies class. So, for example: http://imagesoferoticism.com/smut-capital-of-america/ 
      I test my sites at the beginning of the semester and this definitely wasn't a problem before. However, that could mean this happened anytime between the end of August and now. It's too bad I didn't notice earlier. Normally, if something doesn't work, students won't say anything. So, I have to be on top of things or they use it as an excuse not to do work. It's important that I get this working as soon as possible. 
      I tired enabling Legacy Mode on the blog. This allowed the content posts to show up as showing full content on the Blog page, but then the newer posts that use the "link" and "video" functions from PL do not work. I also tried using PostLoop or PostPins, same result. I may have to put the content in myself and use the Legacy settings as a way to at least get things up quickly. Not sure what else to do. 
      This is a Multisite hosted on Flywheel. Also, I tried deleting the cache. No change.
