Facebook WIdget

  1. I added the Facebook widget and i have issues that i can't seem to resolve. When i copy my Facebook URL and copy into the Facebook widget ...i can click on the "Mark's Facebook" line on my Blog and go directly to Facebook...however below that in a box it says "could not retrieve id for the specified page. please verify correct href was passed in."

    Anyone have any idea what this means and how do i get rid of it?

    The blog I need help with is nunnz.com.

  2. There are differences between Facebook profile page URLs and fan page URLs.
    The error meesage in the Facebook like box widget means that it only works with pages, not personal profiles or groups.

    Please see here as well:

    If you would like to Publicize your posts to your Facebook page, instead of your Facebook profile, click on the “Set Options” link underneath Facebook on your Settings > Sharing page. You will need to connect your blog to Facebook first. You will need to use a Facebook account that has a Profile with administrative rights to the Page. Note: A Page-only account can not be used with Publicize. The Facebook account must have a profile. http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#facebook-pages
