    Where are you trying to place the URL? If you are trying to add the Facebook like widget that is for Facebook pages only.

    I have a facebook group; which I was told that is what the facebook widget is for.
    When I copy and paste the URL:https://www.facebook.com/groups/185716428195465/

    it then tells me: “Could not retrieve the specified page. Please verify correct href was passed in.”

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks,

    i can certainly see the page, and it’s a nice one. But I had to sign in to see it. Make sure you’re signed in when you do this.

    I vaguely recall something about the widget being for Pages, not for Groups. That could be your issue right there. I know on my blogs when I set it up ages ago it worked on the blog that has a Page but I don’t have one on my blog which is a Group.

    You can, instead, just make a text widget with your logo, the little FB “F” and a link to your group.

    Raincoaster,
    I am not sure what you mean and how to do it. Could you explain further?
    My group is an “invite” group. Will it help to make it public?
    Thanks,
