This is a discussion on Facebook "like" Button for Vbulletin within the General Discussion forums, part of the vBSEO SEO Plugin category; Ok, Is it: http://www.MYWEBSITE.com/forums/ Or http://www.MYWEBSITE.com/ ?? I've been at it for a couple of hours... and I can't see ...
Our forums are installed in the forums/ directory.
What should I use?
Wondering because I'm getting the Facebook 'red error' that states:::
The page at http://www.OURWEBSITE.com/forums//forums/entry34.html could not be reached.
EDIT: The error is for the CMS Articles... the forums' Like button works perfectly.
EDIT2: Is there a way I can 'clear the cache' of vBulletin?
Sorry for the noob question, yet I believe this might have something to do.
During initial install of the Facebook Like button, I wrote our domain name with both upper and lower case characters (OurWebSite.com versus ourwebsite.com).
When the 'red error' from Facebook appears, it is referencing our domain with the upper+lower case characters: OurWebSite.com
So maybe I am performing the changes, yet something is "stuck" in the cache?
Should I run the vBulletin Maintenance procedures?
Thank you very much... it is very much appreciated!
I just can't figure this out. :(
Can I PM somebody my AdminCP info, so somebody could check it out?
I read these instructions, the ones over at vB.org, I searched templates, replaced code, moved stuff about... and I can't get it to work.
Is there a way to make the facebook like box fluid width, rather than a fixed width, so it's size follows my 20%,60%,20% template on my cms?
Those questions should be posted at facebook as the control of that is directly in facebook's hands
I've asked there too, but no response yet. Was hoping someone here had adjusted it to be fluid already.
facebook requires you to put in exact width and height details in the code. it uses an iframe so it is pretty much impossible for it to resize by itself.
That's unfortunate...guess I need to reconsider fluid sidebars then.
I am still trying to get the Facebook Like button to work...
Searching around the vB settings in the Control Panel, I came across a setting:::
vB CP >> Settings >> Site Name / URL / Contact Details
In the "Forum URL" field, the value is:::
Is this correct?
Should it be something else?
I ask, because the URL is just like the one that produces the Facebook 'red Error'.
It has the upper+lower character sets.
Thank you for the help!
Leave that setting as is. It is correct.
If you're having issues with the FB like displaying, make sure that you have DISABLED the check box for the Relevant Replacements automatic replacement. This,w hen checked, replaces the fb like area as well.
Note, you should really move your cms to root instead of a double re-direct, as outlined here:
vBSEO 3.5 Release Candidate 1 is here! - vBulletin SEO Forums
On my way to check those things right now!
NVM. Was a noob question.
Edit: sorry, please delete if possible.
