When I post a link of my blog on facebook it shows up as "protected blog"

  1. Hello,

    I'm having a couple issues that hopefully someone can help with. First, when I post a link of http://www.shortbord.com in facebook, the link shows up as a protected blog. My privacy settings are not set to private.

    Also, I'm trying to access my old blog on wordpress.org. My username was the same I just recently upgraded to a premium theme. However, when I log in to wordpress.org it sends me to my wordpress.com site. Thank you very much in advance.

    The blog I need help with is shortbord.com.

  2. The blog you specified at shortbord.com does not appear to be hosted at WordPress.com.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

    This is an automated message.

  3. The blog should be hosted at wordpress.com! http://shortbord.com

  4. It is indeed hosted at WordPress.com. It takes FOREVER to load, however. That could be the problem. Do you have Custom CSS going on that blog? Because I think that's part of the problem. If it takes so long to load, maybe Facebook just thinks it's a private blog?

  5. Hi there,

    You can clear Facebook's cache of your site by entering your url in Facebook's debugger tool on the following page:
