Blank box for Facebook Widget in 20/11 theme.

  1. Hello, I was wondering if someone might be able to tell me what I am doing wrong. I have tried to activate the Facebook widget and all I get is a big white box on my side bar. Does anyone know why? Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is thaibebop.wordpress.com.

  2. Did you enter the URL for a page (not a profile)? It will not display until you do.

  3. I think I don't understand the terminology. The first URL I entered was my homepage, is that considered a profile? The second URL I entered was my newsfeed.

  4. You can add a Facebook like button to your blog ONLY if you have a Facebook fan page (not profile).
    See this http://en.support.wordpress.com/facebook-integration/#facebook-like-button
    Your home and news feed URL corresponds to the same home page not fan page.

  5. Oh ok, now I feel kinda stupid, but thanks, that makes sense now.

  6. Nevertheless you can add a profile widget of your facebook profile (not page) to your blog. If you don't have/want to add the page widget.

  7. Thank you. I have noticed that none of the widgets I have tried to get to work, do. Are widgets a service you have to pay for or am I that ignorant?

  8. I am using the 20/11 theme. Does theme have anything to do with how widgets work?

  9. See here for Facebook integration > http://en.support.wordpress.com/facebook-integration/

  10. Thank you! I seem to have jumped into all this without much research. LOL.

  11. You're welcome.
    P.S. Use the step by step tutorial Staff provide. It's linked to on the bottom of your Admin page http://learn.wordpress.com

  12. Well, that will be incredibly helpful! Thanks do much.
