Facebook Widget

  1. Hi there!

    My english isn´t the best, so pls excuse any mistakes i´m making.

    I have a big problem with the facebook widget. any likes i get on facebook will be displayed double in this widget. the faces r shown twice.

    like seen here. crowsflyblack.wordpress.com

    can u help me pls. what can i do?

    greetings dom

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

  2. All data in widgets is caches and takes time to display and rectify. I am using Firefox 8 and I do not see double faces in your widget. Please try clearing your browser cache and cookies.

  3. I have had a look at the Facebook widget you added to your blog, and it seems to be working just fine. So far there are 3 Likes for your page, and there are no faces shown.

    Did you try to clean your cache and cookies in your browser, and log back into Facebook? Indeed, that sounds more like a Facebook issue to me.

  4. I disabled the faces now. thats why u can´t see any of them. i´ll try your hint with cache/cookies later. thx a lot. :)

  5. Whenever you experience anything unusual the first troubleshooting step to take is to clear your browser cache and cookies. It only takes seconds to do that. Best wishes with your blog.

  6. thx a lot

  7. You're welcome. :)

  8. now i activated the faces ... every face is doubled. :(

  9. Clear your browser cache and cookies because I see only one face.

    1. How are you connecting to the internet and to WordPress.com? The way you connect to the internet (mobile, satellite, DSL, dial-up) and to your blog, and how many proxy server jumps etc. it takes to connect can cause problems. There maybe be problems with your ISP and/or with the proxy servers.

    2. Are you using http:// or https:// see http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

    3.Which browser and version of it are you using?

    4. Is your browser version up to date? You can upgrade any browser version here.

  11. deleted all cookies ... no changes ... :(

  13. I tried it with the Internet Explorer. This one shows only ONE face! :D

    i ´m going to install firefox tomorrow ... hope this works.

  14. I'm trying to add a Facebook widget and I've followed the instructions many times, and nothing happens. I know I must be starting out right because if I use the wrong url, I get a small square saying the url cannot be read. When I put the right url, nothing apears. Very frustrating. What's happening with that?

    You cannot use the code provided by Facebook. There are restricted codes here for security and stability reasons as WordPress.com is a multiuser blogging platform You must use what WordPress.com provides only.

    You can use the Facebook likebox widget found here > Dashboard > Widgets > Facebook likebox widget

    You can post a Facebook badge in your sidebar. http://en.support.wordpress.com/facebook-badge/

    You can also enable sharing buttons on your posts, pages and index pages.
    Also note the “like” button.

    You can have Facebook like & share buttons on your posts.

    You can set up Publicize and publish to your Facebook profile page > http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/

    Alternatively you can use Networked Blogs http://www.networkedblogs.com/ or RSS Grafitti http://www.facebook.com/RSS.Graffiti 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.
