Facebook like box not showing up and Facebook authorization not working

    I have the Facebook like box widget on my sidebar. It had been showing the like box with the faces, but it has stopped. Now it just shows a link that says "go to Facebook.com".

    Also, I have authorized on my fb account for wp to post to it, but on when I compose a new post I still get a notice saying i need to authorize it.

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

    This may happen from time to time and the solution is to wait. It has already recovered and is displaying now.

    Are you trying to publish to your personal Facebook wall or a Facebook page?
    Please try the full reconnect procedure detailed at http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#reconnecting-facebook including step 3 (removing the FB app), which is probably the most important step.

  4. Also note that you cannot post affiliate links on a free hosted WordPress.com. To do so is a violations of the Terms of Service which can result in your blog being suspended. In a nutshell no blogger initiated advertising, retailing or reselling the work created or services provided by anyone other than yourself is allowed on free hosted wordpress.COM blogs. E-commerce transactions via shopping carts and the like cannot be conducted on free blogs from and being free hosted by wordpress.COM

    The advertising exceptions noted in support documentation are for high traffic blogs that qualify for and are accepted into the Ad Control program, and for extremely high traffic blogs that qualify and are accepted into the paid VIP hosting program.

    Thanks so much for your help. And I'm really sorry about the affiliate links. It didn't occur to me that it would be against the terms.

  6. Hi again,
    I suggest you remove them from your blog ASAP.
