FB-Share-button (shortcode) customization

I'd like to use the shortcode for a Facebook-like

[like_button url=http://url-to-like.com]

but with a suggested text when you share it with your friends. 

 

Is that possible?

Hi,

 

I don't use Facebook personally, so Im not quite sure what you mean when you say suggested text ?

When you share a link on Facebook, you might add a text to tell why you are sharing it. I'd like to add an suggested text for users who share a page.

No, not descriptions. That's taken from OpenGraph metainformation. I want the text that users add themselves. See picture.

Adding a suggested text there is possible, but I wondered whether the Like-button shortcode in Pagelines supported it.

I don't think this is possible, I am not actually the best person to answer this topic but everything that the social buttons shortcodes support is on our documentation page. Therefore, I don't think its supported, you will probably want to use a plugin from the Wordpress repository.

      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.

      On my site www.anewbeginning.com the "toggle" function mysteriously stopped working.  I have tried all browsers, tried disabling plugins, removing all the relevant CSS but still cant understand why it isn't working.
      The toggle is placed on this page: http://anewbeginning.com/?page_id=15965 and http://anewbeginning.com/?page_id=10779 but it does not display.
      On my other Platform5 websites, that exact code works fine: see here http://4aa.d11.myftpupload.com/?page_id=123
      Code is the same. Please help, thank you!

      Pagelines seems to "disallow" the (a) usage and/or (display) of shortcodes.
      Specifically I need shortcodes in "description" of "tag/catagory" in order to display images/fontawsome, before a category.
      Please can you provide a fix for me to allow.

      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...
