Facebook Like box widget 'Confirm' link redirecting to 'Page not Found'

  1. I am using Facebook like box widget to my page

    When I click 'Like' button in the widget, it's asking me to confirm, and when I click the 'Confirm' link, it's redirecting me to the facebook "Page Not Found" notification. On the other hand, I am able to like the page from facebook directly.

    Please advise on how I can successfully like my page from the widget


    The blog I need help with is

  2. The Facebook likebox widget will not accept a Profile page URL. It will only accept a [fan] page URL.

  3. It's NOT a profile page. Pl check for yourself if you're doubtful

    I am able to like the page directly from facebook, and that count is coming up in the widget. But 'liking' from the widget is not working as I mentioned above. Why don't you try liking it from the widget and test??

  4. Hi there,
    Thanks for the reply. I have tagged this thread for Staff support. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond.

  5. Hi

    Thanks for your support. Will follow it up.

    BTW, I am not able to add a custom text/html widget with like box code (iframe) directly from facebook either. The html code is simply getting erased when I save the widget! Looks like WordPress inbuilt widget is the only option to achieve this

  6. We cannot use iframes or JavaScript on free hosted blogs.

    Just to be sure of this, are you using the only Facebook likebox widget that will work on free hosted blogs? It's the one found here > Appearance > Widgets (The one provided by Facebook will not work here. )

  7. For clarity you may want to read this closely: vs. The Differences

  8. Thanks for the info
    Yes, I am facing the reported issue while using the Widget from Appearance-> Widgets

    Please retain the issue on Staff Support

  9. Hi there,

    I will ask our internal team about this. I just "liked" the page and I wasn't redirected anywhere, but I also don't see my "like" showing up.

    I'll keep you in the loop!

  10. Sure. By the way, I am using INove theme, if it's relevant in any way..

  11. Thanks for the update :)

  12. Hi

    Any update on this??


  13. Not yet, I'm afraid. I'll let you know of any developments, but response times will likely be slow over the holidays - I am truly sorry.

  14. Hi, I was able to like your site from the Facebook widget in your sidebar.

    I clicked the Like button, waited a second, then refreshed the page and saw my Facebook picture. I did not get asked to confirm anything.

    I then unliked the site with the same procedure and everything worked as expected: I no longer saw my Facebook picture.

    Are things working for you?

    Unfortunately, we have no control over what happens inside that Facebook widget; it's hosted by Facebook. If you're still experiencing problems, I'm not sure we'll be able to help you :(

  15. I also have the same problem...
