Problem with Links on Facebook App (iOS)

Recommended Posts

denilso

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.

      I know this does not have anything to do with Pagelines directly but this is happening on my PL5 site.  At the bottom of my blog posts I have put the Facebook Comments Plugin and it works well but when people are leaving comments they are the same for every post.  Does anyone have any idea on how to solve this so the comments are for the post they are on.  Does that make sense? Ha!
      Thanks for any ideas folks.

      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...
