Facebook link in Watermark not working right

Recommended Posts

redstate

The Facebook link is not working properly on my website header. It links but only appears for a split second. What can I do to solve this? I realize Facebook settings can be difficult at times.

 

See: http://americansendingabuse.org

 

In the Watermark section, I've entered the Facebook and Twitter Handles and hid the watermark.

 

In the Social & Local Site Section, I've entered my Facebook Page Name and Twitter User Name, plus added my Facebook and Twitter Profile URLs.

Hi,

 

Please disable all active plugins and see if this resolves your issue.

Didn't work. Still the same. Any other ideas?

Hmm, it works without adding a username, but doesn't when you add one. This is certainly a bug, which I have just reported.

Thank you. Actually I find the Facebook Like button usually has a problem on many websites so it may not be a Pagelines problem. That's why I also like to add the small Facebook icon right next to the Like button. That way readers can access my Facebook page quickly but can also indicate that they Like the website. Can I add the Facebook icon here too?

You can add a Facebook icon whereever you like, as there is one in Font Awesome which is included in DMS. However, you won't be able to add one to the WaterMark section, as it will require HTML. What I would do is use the MediaBox instead and add the HTML for the Facebook icon there.

I added the Media Box but don't know html. I just want to add a Facebook Like button, Twitter Tweet button & Google+ Share button, although I'd be content with just Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

 

Cam you please show me what html to use?

 

Or any chance you can get the button to work for Facebook in the Watermark? That would be the easiest way to solve this problem.

      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...
