Facebook event.subscribe Callback Not Working – August 2012

Many customers are noticing issues with their Like button plugins that require callbacks such as like locker, traffic pop plugins, like to download, etc. For about 11 days the entire event.subscribe callback method was just not working at all. The official bug page for this issue: http://developers.facebook.com/bugs/457950334238629 has been updated that the issue was fixed yesterday but most people were still reporting it not working.

While they managed to bring event.subscribe back online they broke something else in the process. There is a new bug page quickly growing on the dev site stating that the event.subscribe callback is only working when the href (like button url) is that of the domain the Like button is on - http://developers.facebook.com/bugs/354460911300249

This means for example if your site is crazytuts.com the like button url would need to be of the same domain. It can be any sub page but the same domain. This is only a bug, and you should be able to return to using other URLs including Facebook Page URLs as soon as they have it patched. I am posting this information as the developer pages for Facebook, and Facebook.StackOverflow are all being very vague on information and a lot of people are wondering whats going on.

For now if you want your plugins to function as usual you can change some URLs around and things will work perfect. I have changed over most of the demo pages and everything is running fine. Once the bug status is updated to fix I will revert the URLs to the Tyler.TC Facebook Page to let everyone know if this pain in the ass bug is finally squashed.

Use Facebook Like Locker on Any Website

I have been working on a way to make this kind of idea work on any site and I have a great solution here for anybody who wants to lock ANY type of content behind a Facebook Like Button. Facebook Like Locker now allows you to use the same great idea I created for WordPress, on ANY website.

Facebook Traffic Pop for WordPress v1.6 Update

I have just uploaded the new 1.6 version of Facebook Traffic Pop for WordPress. It should fix a lot of headaches and comes with one small new feature:

Traffic Pop not working on anything but home page – A lot of people who used highly customized URL structures for their sites reported the pop up would only show on the home page and no sub pages. The error was bad file URL’s causing 404 errors for the scripts needed to run Traffic Pop and has been updated to use WordPress’s built in blog_info functions to get the correct file URLs regardless of your URL rewrites.

“FacebookTrafficPop is not a function” Error – I have also done some reading and changed out the ‘$’ signs that I believe were causing a lot of people’s installs to halt because of the way WordPress handles the signs internally. jQuery noConflict has been added and should ensure smooth sailing from now on.

New Feature - Opacity. You can now set the background opacity from the settings page in your WordPress admin panel.

Facebook Send Button Pro for WordPress Updated

The Facebook Send Button Pro plugin for WordPress has been updated to version 1.0.2. This new update added a much requested feature ( should have been there from the start ) which is a template tag.

You can now place the send button anywhere in your theme files using a simple WordPress template tag that can also be customized just like the short code. So for example if you wanted to place a send button at the start of every post automatically you can just add the template tag to your single post theme file and it will automatically get the permalink and add a send button for Facebook where you put the tag :)

As always this is a FREE update to current owners of the plugin, if you do not currently have a copy you can get it now at CodeCanyon for just $4!

How To Use Facebook Send Button On WordPress

Just like Facebook’s like button, the Send button is quickly sweeping through the internet and is a must have social feature for any blogger or website owner looking to have a social presence online!

First off lets look at what the Send button is. In Facebook’s own words: “The Send Button allows your users to easily send your content to their friends. People will have the option to send your URL in an inbox message to their Facebook friends, to the group wall of any Facebook group they are a member of, and as an email to any email address.”

So how do you use the Facebook send button on WordPress? Easy! You could go to the Facebook developer site and generate stand alone button code that you need to change every time you want to use it, and then insert the requied code and script in your posts every time, OR you could use our slick Send Button Pro plugin for WordPress. The Facebook Send Button Pro Plugin for WordPress allows you to do the following:

  • Install and use in just seconds! Facebook Send Button Pro is a zero config plugin. All you have to do is upload and activate and you are ready to roll.
  • This plugin also includes a TinyMCE plugin that allows you to one-click insert customiszed ‘Send’ buttons right from your post editor Toolbar in WordPress
  • Works wherever shortcodes work!
  • Works with Facebook’s different color themes!
  • Insert an unlimited number of share buttons on a single page!
  • Use a simple WordPress Template Tag to place Send buttons anywhere in your theme, automatically. For instance add a send button to each post on your site with one template tag!

You can check out a demo of the plugin right here, and download Facebook Send Button Pro Here! It comes with full instructions and documentation on how to use and install + support!

 

WordPress Like Locker Updated to v1.2

An updated version of WordPress like locker should be live soon. After the last version release I got a lot of bug feedback and have implementeing a lot of fixes and improvements:

  • The issue with the actual wp-likelocker bracket tags appearing around the content after likeing it has been fixed. They will no longer show in content at all.
  • The issue with wrong URLS being used for the CURRENT variable has been fixed. Now when you use CURRENT you will not get the http://CURRENT error when liking the page on Facebook.
  • Cookie tracking has been added! In edition to now tracking the URL of the liked page in the DB, cookies are now set to remember each post a user clicks like on. This also fixes the issue of post id’s changing when you modify or edit posts + pages.

Thanks for all the feedback!

Here is a demo:
