Facebook Like plugin for WordPress updated

My Facebook Like plugin for WordPress has just been updated to version 1.3.6, and includes the following changes since 1.3.1:

  • Added support for entering a custom CSS style.
  • Added support for passing custom arguments from the template tag.
  • Added an option to use the default Facebook height. Just leave the height option blank in the settings for this to take effect.
  • Added support for entering a custom height for the like button, which can be used to trim excess whitespace after the button.

Contact me if you have any suggestions or bug reports.

    • Hello Louise and thank you!

      The problem seems to be on the Facebook side. It says that their servers can not connect to your site for some reason. The button takes a long time to show up too, so this might only be temporary.

      I have tried to replicate the problem elsewhere, but had no luck.

      Could you try switching the button language to English(US) and see if that works?

      PS. I have shortened the url in your post, since it caused the page to break. DS.

    • This is very strange. I tried to just share a link to your site on Facebook, but they can’t even access your site from their servers. When sharing, it should grab the title and text from the site automatically, but it doesn’t. That is the reason why the Like button doesn’t work as well.

      See this screenshot for how it looks when trying to share from your site:

      An example when sharing from my site:

      I am not sure what’s causing this, but it’s probably something at the Facebook side. I will let you know as soon as I find anything out.

  1. unfortunately the plugin doesn´t work anymore on my site. on the newer postings, it doesn´t count the likes, in the older postings it does.
    you got any idea where the error could be?

    thanks a lot for your plugin anyway!
