Publicize to Facebook not working

  1. When I turn on Publicize to Facebook I get this error:

    Facebook Page-only accounts can not be used at this time. Please see this support document for more information.
    (http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#facebook-pages)

    However, my account is NOT a page-only account. It's got a profile and a page and I set it to the Page using the exact selection dialog they show in the example.

    Profile: http://www.facebook.com/?sk=welcome#!/profile.php?id=100003366090839
    Page: http://www.facebook.com/?sk=welcome#!/pages/The-IMPire/168956583211952

    Any suggestions?

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

  2. Facebook has been having problems the past couple of days. Try manually posting for now. It will probably appear not to have worked, but will in fact have worked. They need to fix things on their side.

  3. I have been having the same problem! It tells me that I am connected but it doesn't show up. Hopefully they will fix it soon.

  4. For months I have not had a successful post to FB. I get this message:

    To enable Publicize: Facebook, you will need to authorize your WordPress.com account on Smoketx's Blog to connect with your Facebook account.

    Click the link below to go to Facebook. You will need to log in and click allow. Facebook Page accounts must have a corresponding Profile at this time.

    Authorize connection with Facebook

    I follow the authorize link and it says it worked but then when I try to publicize the same thing happens all over again.

  5. We cannot help you without an active link to your blog, starting with http.

  6. @smoketx: Please confirm if you followed this procedure to the letter to reconnect

  7. I have now followed those steps to the letter. When I return to the page where I create a new blog entry and look at the area that says "Publicize: Twitter, Facebook" there was a large yellow box telling me I needed to "authorize Facebook" and it had a link to follow. I did that too and was presented with an overlay screen with a rectangular white box with no text in it. When I closed that and went back to the blog entry page the yellow box was gone. I have nothing to blog about this evening so I won't be testing to see if I am actually connected to FB.

  8. All seems to be well now, thanks for the help.

  9. I still have the exact same problem as in the original post.

    It tells me I can't use a page-only account when it's not that kind of account. It's a profile and a page and I selected the page just like in the documentation.

  10. You cannot use Publicize with a Profile, only with a Page.
