I have a message at the bottom of my blog saying “It looks like your Facebook URL is incorrectly configured. Please check it in your widget settings.” I don’t know how to fix this. I don’t know how to find my FB URL. I copied what was in the adddress bar but that didn’t seem to fix the problem. I am just wanting to add a LIKE button to my blog. I am a TOTAL NEWBIE.
Blog url: http://charbish1059.wordpress.com/
The blog I need help with is charbish1059.wordpress.com.
The Facebook Like Box widget is only for Facebook Fan Pages. It’s not for profile pages. You need to enter the correct URL starting with http:// for a fan page there.
THANKS will try that!
You’re welcome. For Facebook integration see here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/facebook-integration/
Gracious clearly I do not know what I am doing. I don’t even know what a fan page is. So there you have it. I think I must abandon this project! STILL—when my page says I need to correctly configure my FB URL it bothers me—as if there’s something I’ve left undone. What I think you’re saying is this: if I do not have a Fan Page, then I don’t need to worry about that error message.
I am too new to have a fan page I imagine lol!
You most likely have a Profile page and if that’s the case then the Facebook like box widget cannot be used for it.
Thanks I appreciate your tutorial assistance!
You’re welcome and best wishes for happy blogging. :)
Well you can promote your profile in the text widget. Do you want to do this?
That sounds like an idea!
Click the Facebook integration link I provided above.
You can also add a Facebook profile badge or a Facebook page badge to your blog if you’d like. We have a full guide for doing so. http://en.support.wordpress.com/facebook-integration/facebook-badge/
