    I am having problems connecting Facebook via the publicize option. Once I have connected it via the dashboard link, when writing a new post it asks me to refresh the link. This doesn’t work and I have to manually paste the link into Facebook.

    Is this a known problem, and if so do you have a solution.

    Many Thanks

    1. Try flushing your FB cache but disconnect from FB first http://umairj.com/146/how-to-clear-facebook-shares-cache/
    2. Try the full reconnect procedure again detailed at http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#reconnecting-facebook including step 3 (removing the FB app), which is probably the most important step.
    3. See also publicize troubleshooting http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#troubleshooting

    Note: RSS Grafitti http://www.facebook.com/RSS.Graffiti can be used 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. You can get any feed written on any wall (Facebook Profiles, Fan Pages, Groups, Events and Application Profile Pages). In fact, multiple feeds to multiple walls. You choose the combination.

    Try editing your post and on the sidebar there should be an option saying publicise. (If not click on screen options and choose publicise.)

    Once you are happy with the way your post looks, click on the publicise menu and then tick the facebook choice. If you’re blog and account are linked to facebook correctly, you should be having no issues at all.

    Clearing your cache and browser cookies also helps.
