Blog not posting on Facebook.

  1. My blog is not posting on Facebook. Works just fine with Twitter. I clicked on "Edit" for the post and it shows that I'm connected to share with FB but nothing shows up there. I've tried reinstalling as per the directions several times and it still is not working.

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

  2. Post the snippet and link manually to save time first and then proceed as follows.

    1. Try flushing your FB cache but disconnect from FB first http://umairj.com/146/how-to-clear-facebook-shares-cache/

    2. (a) Try the full reconnect procedure again detailed at http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#reconnecting-services including step 3 (removing the FB app), which is probably the most important step.

    3. See also publicize troubleshooting http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#troubleshooting

    Note: RSS Grafitti http://www.facebook.com/RSS.Graffiti can be used for posting to Facebook walls if you prefer. RSS Graffiti periodically checks the RSS/Atom feeds that you specify and posts any new entries it finds to the Facebook Walls that you specify. You can get any feed written on any wall (Facebook Profiles, Fan Pages, Groups, Events and Application Profile Pages). In fact, multiple feeds to multiple walls. You choose the combination.

    Please note that reconnecting Publicize with Facebook and/or with Twitter does not re-publicize missed posts, but it will work for future posts.

  3. This has been incredibly confusing. I used the FB Debugger as advised by the "how to clear FB Cache" article, and the results gave the following comments:

    Open Graph Warnings That Should Be Fixed
    Extraneous Property|Objects of this type do not allow properties named 'article:publisher'

    Parser Mismatched Metadata|The parser's result for this metadata did not match the input metadata. Likely, this was caused by the data being ordered in an unexpected way, multiple values being given for a property only expecting a single value, or property values for a given property being mismatched. Here are the input properties that were not seen in the parsed result: 'article:publisher'

    I'm not experienced in code so didn't know what to do with this, where 'article:publisher' is, or what to fix (or where). None of the metatags they list show this, but even if one of them did, I wouldn't know how to fix it. I went back and reset up the Facebook link on WordPress but since I didn't make any changes as per the above, I have no idea if this link works.

    I did set up RSS Graffiti and it work, although it didn't pull in the header photo (probably too large, although when I did a manual post of the blog link, a cropped portion of the header appeared). I guess I have to include a photo at the start of each new post so some graphic appears - not something I really want to do.

    So I can't really say this is fully resolved - don't know if the FB link works and no picture pulled in with RSS Graffiti.

    The result of the Forums search showed a LOT of posts/comments/ complaints about the FB link not working. Is this a FB problem, because they seem to tinker with little changes that they don't announce, and those changes conflict with the WordPress connection. Or is it a WordPress issue? I ask because for my own personal blog, I never had a problem with the setup - the FB & Twit links worked just fine right from the start. I set up this blog the same way, WordPress assigned the URL, and it's just been a struggle w/ FB.
