Linking to Facebook

  1. Hello there!

    So I'm trying to link my blog to the normal social media (Twitter, Facebook) but am worried about my fb link.

    So far, the only way I can get it to connect is by logging on to facebook first and then adding the url.
    Instead of http:// it is https//

    Am I making sense? I just don't know what I'm doing wrong. The https is what concerns me.

    Thanks a mil for any assistance.

    The blog I need help with is pattydixon.com.

  2. https:// is just the sign that you're logged in securely. I think that it is the way it normally works when you're setting up WP to work with FB.

  3. If wp isn't accepting it with the "s," you can try just dropping it -- but fb may require a secure sign-in.

    Drop the "s' and your problem will disappear.
