floating social is the culprit of my massive head ache

and im sure i am the culprit of yours ;-D

ok i dont remember off the top of my head if iv posted anything here about how i cannot get the facebook open graph to work, specifically using Thesis framework..

so after a lot of hunting and and crying i thought id see what happens if i change

is_single to is_page in
add_filter('language_attributes', 'add_og_xml_ns');
function add_og_xml_ns($content) {
return ' xmlns:og="http://opengraphprotocol.org/schema/" ' . $content;

add_filter('language_attributes', 'add_fb_xml_ns');
function add_fb_xml_ns($content) {
return ' xmlns:fb="http://developers.facebook.com/schema/" ' . $content;

function add_facebook_open_graph_tags() {
if (is_single()) {
global $post;
$image = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'og_custom_image', $single = true);
if (!$image)
$image = 'http://scifun.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/god-damnit-internet.jpg';
<meta property="og:title" content="<?php the_title(); ?>"/>
<meta property="og:type" content="article" />
<meta property="og:image" content="<?php echo $image; ?>" />
<meta property="og:url" content="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" />
<meta property="og:description" content="<?php echo get_bloginfo('description'); ?>" />
<meta property="og:site_name" content="<?php echo get_bloginfo('name'); ?>" />
<meta property="fb:app_id" content="215839858476754" />
<?php }

add_action('wp_head', 'add_facebook_open_graph_tags', 99);

and it worked

now i wonder ... ok.. so i have manually inserted a fb like button on my home page, the iframe version

and i specified floating social to not put on my pages, since i cant specifically chose to not display it on certain pages..

so then what i do is, tell floating social, to not put the button on posts either...

then i manually inserted a fb like button on a post which iv been using for testing on the facebook LINT (not like) site which has so far been telling me i have everything wrong, which when looking at the source does not appear wrong at all...

so i give it a shot, i test the url on lint, having disabled Floating Social pretty much, and all of a suddenly it works... making the culprit.. the floating social plugin !! RAAWR!! lol....

someone on the thesis forum said

I have no idea why Facebook isn't reading the meta tags - all I can think is that maybe having the LIKE button appear BEFORE the <HEAD> tag (and thus, before the <meta> tags), via this code:

<style type="text/css">
#wdsb-share-box {
margin-left: -130px;
display: initial !important;

<div id="wdsb-share-box" style="">

  • <div class="wdsb-item" id="wdsb-service-google">
    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js"></script><g:plusone size="tall"></g:plusone> </div>
  • <div class="wdsb-item" id="wdsb-service-facebook">
    <iframe src="http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=http%3A%2F%2Fronaproject.com%2Fblog%2Fplease-work%2F&send=false&layout=box_count&width=100&show_faces=false&action=like&colorscheme=light&font&height=60"scrolling="no" frameborder="0" style="border:none; width:58px; height:62px;" allowTransparency="true"></iframe> </div>
  • <div class="wdsb-item" id="wdsb-service-twitter">
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js"></script>Tweet </div>


not sure what that really means exactly cause i thought the like button itself would be in the Body.. but i dunno.. but maybe what she said will help someone here or maybe it wont

either way, i am pretty desperate to have a working like button and i kinda thought this would be it, even better that it floats which is sweet.. but as it turns out im having problems with it like all the other free ones..

could i get some kind of estimate as to when this could be dealt with as it seems to me to be some funky code in the plugin?

i cant afford to prolong my membership until our site is in better condition and when we release a new book.. and wait out the fix and i think i dont get updates when im no longer a member..
